With the first two months of the minor league season almost in the books, it seems like a good time to take a look at the A’s minor league team leaders in a few key hitting and pitching categories. And it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to see the names of top prospects like Franklin Barreto, Matt Chapman and A.J. Puk high atop our list of A’s minor league team leaders.

Leaders are included for all four of the A’s full-season affiliates – Nashville, Midland, Stockton and Beloit. A minimum of 100 at-bats is required for the hitting categories and a minimum of 40 innings is required for the ERA and WHIP categories for pitchers. An asterisk indicates not just a team leader but also an organizational leader in a particular category, and the stats are complete through games of Sunday, May 28. Some of these names you may expect to see atop the lists, while others might come as a bit of a surprise!

You can always stay up to date on the A’s top prospects and all the daily action in the A’s minor league system right here on Athletics Farm. A version of this report originally appeared on Athletics Nation

Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Corey Walter

(7 IP / 6 H / 1 ER / 0 BB / 2 K / Win)

After spending most of the season pitching for Double-A Midland, RHP Corey Walter looked more than ready for Triple-A on Sunday. 2014’s 28th-round draft pick for the A’s allowed just 1 run on 6 hits while throwing a 7-inning complete game to earn his 1st win for the Sounds in the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader. The game was a 1-1 tie until the bottom of the 7th inning, when third baseman Matt Chapman doubled to lead off the inning and then came in to score the winning run on catcher Ryan Lavarnway‘s RBI single as the Sounds won in a walk-off to split the twinbill. First baseman Matt Olson doubled and walked in the game, and designated hitter Renato Nunez walked and drove in the Sounds’ first run with a sacrifice fly. RHP Paul Blackburn, who’s riding a 13-inning scoreless streak, is set to take the mound on Monday for Nashville.

Pitcher Evan Manarino

(6 IP / 1 H / 0 ER / 0 BB / 3 K / Win)

After enduring his roughest outing of the season in his last appearance for Stockton, LHP Evan Manarino turned in one of his best starts of the year on Saturday. The 24-year-old was almost perfect over 6 innings, allowing just 1 base runner on a double and striking out 3 to earn his 3rd win for the Ports. RHP Chris Jensen, who was reassigned to Stockton from the Sounds on Saturday, permitted 1 run in 3 innings of relief to pick up the save for the Ports. First baseman Seth Brown continued his hot hitting of late, reaching base in all 4 of his plate appearances, on a triple, a walk and a pair of singles. He drove in Stockton’s first run and also stole a base in the game, and Brown is now 11 for 27 with 3 home runs and 7 RBIs over his last 7 games. Right fielder Brett Siddall doubled and scored a run, while second baseman Branden Cogswell singled in a pair for the Ports. Meanwhile, RHP Carlos Navas was reassigned to the RockHounds and Midland LHP Cody Stull was sent to Stockton on Saturday.

The Ports hit three home runs at The Hangar in Lancaster, but it wasn’t enough to keep Stockton from suffering its seventh straight loss on Sunday. Right fielder Seth Brown belted a home run in the top of the 2nd inning to tie the game 1-1, and then slugged his second solo shot of the day in the 7th to give him a team-leading 7 round-trippers on the season. Second baseman Josh Vidales smacked a solo shot of his own in the 6th, while third baseman Mikey White doubled twice and drove in a run, but that would account for all of Stockton’s scoring on Sunday. Starter Logan Shore had his rockiest outing of the season, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits over 4 1/3 frames to suffer his 3rd loss, while LHP Will Gilbert surrendered another 6 runs in just 1 2/3 innings of relief for the Ports.

The RockHounds were shut out on 3 hits through the first 7 innings on Thursday. And the Hounds were down 1-0 in the top of the 8th inning, when shortstop Richie Martin doubled and eventually came around to score the tying run on right fielder J.P. Sportman‘s sacrifice fly. Then, later in the same inning, designated hitter Tyler Marincov singled in center fielder Brett Vertigan, who’d also singled, to provide the margin of victory for Midland. Martin also singled to lead off the 6th but was left stranded and later came in to score an insurance run for the RockHounds in the top of the 9th. Starter Heath Fillmyer allowed 1 run over 4 innings of work and exited with his team down by a run. LHP Brandon Mann and RHP Lou Trivino each tossed 2 scoreless innings in relief, with Mann extending his scoreless-innings streak to 17 1/3, and Trivino picking up his 4th win. RHP Kyle Finnegan pitched a perfect 9th to post his 5th save as the Hounds won for the eighth time in their last nine games.
