Brewers prospect Lewis Brinson went 2-for-3 on Monday for Triple-A Colorado Springs.
In addition to the two hits, Brinson also scored a run, walked, struck out, stole a base and was caught stealing. If he was a basketball player, we'd call him a "stat-sheet stuffer." He's looked just fine since returning from the jammed finger, and he's well on his way to helping the Brewers/your fantasy team this summer.
Angels prospect Grayson Long gave up one hit in six innings of work for Double-A Mobile.
Long walked one and struck out four, and didn't allow a run. The Angels system gets ridiculed a lot, and it should, but Long is one of the more interesting arms in the group. He has a plus slider, and he throws a low 90 mph fastball for strikes. He won't be a fantasy stalwart, but the stuff/command should be good enough to allow him to start at the highest level.
Rockies prospect Raimel Tapia picked up three hits on Monday for Triple-A Albuquerque.
He's now hitting .356 on the season in the PCL. Tapia didn't have any success in his (very) short stay with the Rockies, but that shouldn't scare you. The Rockies outfield depth should scare you. Tapia might need a trade for him to fulfill his fantasy promise.
Cardinals prospect Chris Ellis struck out eight hitters on Monday for Triple-A Memphis.
Ellis allowed just two earned runs while walking just one over his 6 2/3 innings for the Redbirds. That start saw his ERA drop to 8.20, so he was obviously in need of a quality start. The former Braves and Angels prospect has shown quality stuff at times, but consistency hasn't been his friend. He's worth monitoring, but there's a lot of volatility here.
Mets prospect Amed Rosario got on base four times on Monday for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Rosario went 2-for-3, and also walked twice. That ups his batting average to .414 and on-base percentage to .455. It's getting harder and harder to justify his place in the minor leagues. He looks ready.
Athletics prospect Franklin Barreto picked up three hits on Monday for Triple-A Nashville.
Barreto has been prone to slow starts, but not this year. He's hitting .352/.400/.549 with the Sounds, and showing why so many believe he's one of the best shortstop prospects in baseball. Oakland general manager David Forst recently said that Barreto isn't a candidate for a call-up, but more efforts like this could force the A's hand.
Mariners prospect Tyler O'Neill had three extra-base hits on Monday for Triple-A Tacoma.
One of those hits was a homer, and the other two were doubles. O'Neill saw his stock soar after a strong 2016 season, and despite a relatively slow start, he offers the Seattle system one of their few chances of a potential middle of the order bat. He should see time with the Mariners before the end of 2017.
Giants prospect Tyler Beede struggled on Monday, giving up five runs in under five innings for Triple-A Sacramento.
Beede didn't get a lot of help from his defense, and two of those runs were unearned. He did give up eight hits, however, and he walked three. With Madison Bumgarner out for a substantial amount of time, Beede has an opportunity to join the rotation. He'll have to pitch better than this to make it a reality.
