This week, we're going to take a look at the A's minor league leaders in a number of different hitting and pitching categories. And after that, I've also included the A's Fall Instructional League roster for your perusal. But first, here's a quick recap of the A's affiliates' playoff performances last week as well as some of the recent injuries incurred. You can always keep tabs on all the A's prospects on my Athletics Farm site and get the latest on all the A's minor league doings right here on Athletics Nation...

Playoff & Injury Updates:

With the help of strong outings by starting pitchers Sean Manaea and Jake Sanchez, the Midland RockHounds won their best-of-five divisional series by three games to one, clinching the series on Saturday. Outfielder Jaycob Brugman went 5 for 9 with 2 home runs, while third baseman Renato Nunez went 6 for 14 with a grand slam in the series. The RockHounds will now be making their second straight trip to the Texas League Championship Series, which begins on Tuesday. But they'll be without shortstop Chad Pinder, who was felled by a hamstring injury, and outfielder Josh Whitaker, who suffered a broken finger. Pinder has already been replaced on the RockHounds roster by Stockton shortstop Yairo Munoz, and it looks like Whitaker will likely be replaced by Stockton outfielder J.P. Sportman.

Despite solid efforts from starting pitchers Daniel Mengden and Matt Stalcup, the Stockton Ports lost two games to one in their best-of-three divisional series last week, dropping the final game in a 15-inning marathon on Friday. Center fielder Brett Vertigan went 5 for 13 with a home run, while shortstop Franklin Barreto went 3 for 8 in the series. But the Ports played without third baseman Matt Chapman, who re-injured his wrist just prior to the playoffs.
