A’s Final 2016 Minor League Hitting & Pitching Leaders

New, 10 comments
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Unfortunately, the A’s Triple-A affiliate Nashville Sounds dropped a dramatic heartbreaker by a score of 10-9 in Game #5 of their PCL playoff series to end their season on Sunday. But shortstop Franklin Barreto had a big game, homering, tripling, doubling, walking and driving in a pair of runs, while Renato Nunez hit his third home run of the series and Matt Olson homered as well in the loss.

After winning their playoff series, the A’s Double-A affiliate Midland RockHounds will continue their quest for a third straight Texas League Championship when they take on Northwest Arkansas in the Texas League Championship Series on Tuesday.

In the meantime, with the regular season now complete for all the A’s affiliates, I wanted to offer a quick look at the A’s minor league stat leaders this season. Matt Chapman topped many categories and, despite his call-up, Ryon Healy still ended up leading a few. You can stay up to date on the A’s top prospects and all the daily action as Midland continues its Texas League title defense on my Athletics Farm site and you can check out this year’s minor league stat leaders right here on Athletics Nation
