Top 50 update

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Well, first, a quick shout out to Cory Spangenberg, the first first-round pick to sign. The No. 10 overall pick came to terms with the Padres officially on June 10. The next day, No. 29 overall, Joe Panik, signed with the San Francisco Giants. Both first-rounders will begin their pro careers in the short-season Northwest League, which begins its season on Friday, June 17.  Spangenberg’s Eugene Emeralds will travel to Panik’s Salem-Keizer Volcanoes June 22-24.

You can keep up with all the Draft signings with MLB.com’s handy-dandy Draft history section, which contains every pick from every Draft. I’ll try to post updates here when I get them.

Now back to the usual Top 50 updates on Mondays. I know it’s been a few weeks, but we’ll stick with the same Player/Pitcher of the Week formats. First, the hitters… and kudos to Mike Moustakas and Dee Gordon for getting call ups to the bigs!

Hitter of the week: Putting the big league debuts aside, it’s hard to look past what No. 1 prospect Mike Trout is doing, isn’t it? Still a teenager, he’s now sixth in the Texas League in average, fifth in OPS and second in steals. Last week, he went 12-for-26, with three triples, one homer, one RBI and five steals in six attempts.

Some notes on pitchers. John Lamb needed Tommy John surgery; Tyler Matzek got demoted; Jordan Lyles made his big-league debut and Shelby Miller got bumped up to Double-A, all since the last time I updated.

Pitcher of the Week:  Julio Teheran lowered his Triple-A ERA to 1.91 with a gem on June 9. The young right-hander went eight shutout innings, allowing just three hits while walking none. He struck out 11. He’s got a 0.64 ERA now in two June starts
