Prospect of the Day:  RHP Tanner Poppe (Helena Brewers)

Poppe was a bit of an underrated selection for the Brewers in the 2013 Draft. They drafted the right-hander in the 31st round, and he reportedly touched 97 mph on the radar gun as a reliever with the University of Kansas this past spring. Those are the types of arms on which to take fliers in the later rounds. Draft them and hope the development staff can teach the young man to be a better pitcher. Because if it all works out, the organization might have a decent relief prospect.

Guys with overpowering fastballs — especially college guys — will generally perform very well in the rookie leagues. Tanner Poppe has been no different. After throwing six scoreless innings and striking out eight for the AZL club, he has moved to Helena where he’s compiled a 3.09 ERA in his first 11.2 innings. He was particularly good on Wednesday evening. He struck out four over 1.2 scoreless innings, in which he also picked up his first hold in the Pioneer League.

Poppe still needs to develop his slider and become more consistent with his fastball command, but he’s someone to pay attention to at the lower levels. Even if it’s a very small chance (as of now) he makes it to the big leagues, drafting guys with that potential in the 31st round is good work.

    The biggest question of the day is how do you pronounce his name? Is it Poppy or Pope?

    I spent three years thinking the second base prospect was pronounced Gennet only to later learn it is actually Jennet. I don’t want to go through that again…
