The 6-3 shooting guard has physical dimensions that resemble Avery Bradley. He’s one of the best perimeter defenders in the draft and an efficient 3-point shooter. Not much upside in terms of offensive creation here, but a nice 3-and-D bet.
A toolsy prospect with a plus feel for the game, Bonga has a long way to go before being ready to contribute in the NBA. It’s likely he’ll be stashed overseas for at least a year.
The 6-9 forward shows nice play-making instincts, though, which could be worth something if his jumper and/or athleticism ever develop.
Brown was once pegged as a potential lottery prospect, but a wrist injury interrupted his sophomore season. The 6-5 guard is a strong defender and capable playmaker who needs to improve his jump shot from range. Brown is a positive upside play here for Detroit if the jumper can ever come around.
It was one of the better at-bats I’ve seen, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. Really special.
Santana had a walk to give him a free pass in six straight games and up his total this month to 27, which is the most for the Phillies in June since Greg Luzinski walked 28 times in 1980.
The Diamondbacks matched their season high by climbing 13 games above .500. They won the season series against Miami 6-1.
The finale started at 9:10 a.m. Phoenix time, but the Diamondbacks were ready to go and led 3-0 by the second inning.
The biggest thing was being ready to go on the first pitch and not sleepwalking into it, Goldschmidt said.
