There will be no Prospect Round-Up this week, but there’s one bit of news, although it will sound like old news.
Kilian threw a 7-inning shutout in Richmond’s doubleheader this past weekend, allowing three hits and one walk, while striking out four. This is the third Weekly award for Caleb Kilian, who was named the High-A West Pitcher of the Week twice while with Eugene. He was also the High-A West Pitcher of the Month in May.

- The Giants Black team scored nine runs on three hits (mostly thanks to ten walks).

DSL: Yankees2 3, Giants Orange 0
DSL Giants Orange Notes:
- The Orange Giants were no-hit in their season debut. Not a good start. They got five walks though.
- Mikell Manzano had a solid start, even if giving up one run would be too many runs when getting no-hit. Manzano struck out 8 in 5.0 innings, in his pro debut.
- Junior Flores had a scoreless pro debut, but walked three batters while striking out one in his 1.0 innings.
