The Padres are calling up infielder-outfielder Carlos Asuaje, reports FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

The Padres haven't confirmed. Asuaje, 25, appeared in seven games with the Padres last season and was batting .222/.335/.319 with one homer and 20 RBI over 39 games this season with Triple-A El Paso. He has mostly played second base in the minors, but he also has experience between third base and left field.

Phillies prospect Ben Lively threw six shutout innings on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

In those six shutout innings, Lively gave up just five hits, walked no one and struck out nine. The no walks aren't surprising, as he's put just five hitters on base via walk the entire season. He doesn't have elite stuff, but he should throw enough strikes to pitch in the back of a rotation. Whether or not that makes him fantasy relevant is another question.
May 22 - 2:07 PM

Cubs prospect Mark Zagunis went 3-for-5 on Sunday for Triple-A Iowa.

One of those hits was a homer, which was his seventh of the 2017 campaign. A former catcher, Zagunis has seen his stock improve every year, and it's largely due to his impressive plate discipline. He's not an elite power prospect, but he has enough pop to hit 15 to 20 homers a season. When you combine that with his on-base skills, that's a good fantasy prospect. Now it's just a matter of figuring out where he can play in the Cubs loaded system.
May 22 - 2:01 PM

Phillies prospect Scott Kingery went 4-for-5 with two homers on Sunday for Double-A Reading.

Kingery also scored four times. A 2015 second-round selection, Kingery has been sensational in the Eastern League in 2017, and now owns a 1.018 OPS. He also is a plus runner, and he's capable of stealing 20-plus bases a season. Add in his ability to play a quality second base, and you have yourself a fine middle-infield fantasy prospect. He should get a chance to play in Triple-A soon.
May 22 - 1:54 PM

Athletics prospect Jharel Cotton pitched seven strong innings on Sunday for Triple-A Nashville.

In his seven innings, Cotton didn't allow a run, gave up just three hits and struck out nine. After struggling with Oakland at the start of the season, it's nice to see Cotton pitching well, even if it is against competition he should dominate. Another start like this and we could see the right-hander back in the Oakland rotation.
May 22 - 1:49 PM

Indians prospect Francisco Mejia homered on Sunday for Double-A Akron.

It was the third homer of the year for the switch-hitting catcher. After establishing himself as one of the best catching prospects in baseball, Mejia has continued to hit in 2017, and he's shown more power than anticipated in the process. He's also a competent defender with a strong throwing arm behind the plate, so you don't have to worry about him moving positions. If he's still available in your dynasty league, you should pick him up immediately, and make fun of your friends for not doing so earlier.
May 22 - 1:42 PM

The Nationals are calling up right-hander Joe Ross to start Tuesday against the Mariners.

Ross was surprisingly optioned to Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month, but his stint in the minors didn't last long. While he posted a 5.50 ERA over three starts in Triple-A, he threw seven innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and one walk in his most recent outing. The 22-year-old had a 7.47 ERA over three starts prior to his demotion, but he's capable of much better if he's right and is worth picking up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.
May 22 - 1:35 PM

Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun homered on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

After not homering in the first two weeks of the season, Calhoun now has nine. He's also done this while only striking out 17 times this season, which speaks to his power and his hand-eye coordination. There are serious defensive concerns here, but Calhoun can really hit, and the Dodgers would do well to find somewhere for him to play.
