Here’s a quick look at the South African natives currently playing minor league baseball.

Gift Ngoepe, Toronto Blue Jays
Current team: Buffalo Bisons (Triple-A)
Ngoepe now has 22 games under his belt in Buffalo, after two stints with the major league team earlier in the season. In 64 Triple-A at bats, the infielder is hitting .203 with a .329 OBP. He’s got 5 extra base hits, a stolen base, and 11 walks to go with 28 strikeouts.

Tayler Scott, Texas Rangers.
Current team: Round Rock Express (Triple-A)
Scott allowed his first runs in over three weeks in his most recent relief outing, and he maintains a 2-1 record and 2.61 ERA for the season. He has struck out 22 and walked 8 in 20.2 innings pitched.

Dylan Unsworth, Los Angeles Angels.
Current team: Salt Lake Bees (Triple-A)
Unsworth has a 4-0 record in 7 games (3 starts) in Triple A, despite a 5.93 ERA. The righty made his most recent start on June 2nd, but is currently listed on the team’s disabled list for the second time this spring with a left calf strain.

Anthony Phillips, Colorado Rockies.
Current team: Albuquerque Isotopes (Triple-A)
Philipps was transferred off the Triple-A roster around a month ago, then returned for two weeks of action at the end of May. The 28 year old has hit .318 with a .434 OBP in his 14 games in Albuquerque (including a two homer game), but he’s again inactive while being listed to a Rookie league team that doesn’t start playing games for another couple weeks.

Kieran Lovegrove. Cleveland Indians.
Current team: Akron Rubber Ducks (Double-A)
Lovegrove earned a promotion May 13th after 17 innings in High-A with a 1.56 ERA and 25 strikeouts. His success has continued in Akron, with 7 appearances leading to a 1.74 ERA there. Across both levels, he has a 3-0 record, 2 saves, 18 hits allowed, 13 walks, and 36 strikeouts in 27.2 innings.

Now in Extended Spring Training in Florida until the rookie league seasons begin later this month.

Vince Deyzel, Pittsburgh Pirates.
Current team: GCL Pirates (rookie)

Victor Ngoepe, Pittsburgh Pirates.
