Michael Bourn is not in the Indians starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays.

Bourn, who returned this week from a hamstring injury, is just 1-for-13 (.077) with five strikeouts and a stolen bases in his first three games. It's likely just a day to rest and clear his head, and he's expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale.

Rays prospect right-handed pitcher Nate Karns had his second consecutive good start for Triple-A Durham, striking out nine.

Karns allowed only two hits, one walk, and one hit batsmen in seven shutout innings. Hit ERA sits at an unsightly 5.59 due to two bad starts to start 2014, but in his past two starts he has a 0.75 ERA and opponents are hitting .132/.214/.211 against him. The Rays rotation is beyond overloaded, so Karns would need a couple of injuries to see time in Tampa Bay that is not as a long reliever.

It's just a routine day of rest for Avila being a day game after a night game.

Bryan Holaday will get the start behind the dish against opposing southpaw C.J. Wilson. Avila, who is hitting just .182/.308/.242 with no RBI on the season, should return to the lineup on Sunday.
Apr 19 - 9:47 AM

Cubs prospect third baseman Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 on Friday, which included hitting his fourth home run of the season.

Bryant is hitting .286/.455/.643 for Double-A Tennessee with four home runs, three doubles, and three stolen bases through 14 games. He is unlikely to steal many bases in the future, but Bryant projects as a middle of the order slugger who could hit 30+ home runs at the major-league level. Look for Bryant to make his Cubs debut before the end of 2014.
Apr 19 - 9:41 AM

Mets prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo went 4-for-5 with a walk and a triple on Friday for High-A St. Lucie.

Nimmo seems to be finding his stroke in 2014, as he is hitting .407/.507/.542 with three doubles, one triple, and one home run through 15 games. Nimmo has 12 walks and 14 strikeouts while making 14 starts in center field. Despite concerns about his range forcing Nimmo into an outfield corner, the Mets are clearly trying to see if Nimmo can find a way to stay in center field.
Apr 19 - 9:36 AM

Royals shortstop prospect Raul Mondesi went 1-for-5 with his second triple of the year for High-A Wilmington.

The 18-year old Mondesi is hitting .283/.353/.391 in a league where the average hitter is 23 years old. He has one double, two triples, and three stolen bases on the year. He needs to become more consistent on defense, as he had 30 errors in 2013 (high error totals are common for young shortstops, even Derek Jeter had 56 in his first full season), but he looks like a spark plug who could hit .300 with 10 home runs and 30-plus stolen bases.
Apr 19 - 9:23 AM

Indians top prospect Francisco Lindor picked up three hits on Friday, raising his line to .263/.333/.421 for the season.

In comparison to every other stop in the minor leagues, Lindor has struggled offensively during his time with Double-A Akron. It is important to remember that Lindor is 20 years old, and he is slugging a career high .421 while playing his consistently elite defense. Asdrubal Cabrera is hitting .220/.292/.390 for Cleveland, which could open the door for Lindor's promotion.
Apr 19 - 9:06 AM

Reds outfield prospect Jesse Winker is off to a solid start for High-A Bakersfield, hitting .322/.408/.525 through 15 games with six doubles and two home runs.

He sports a .303/.402/.480 line over 183 games as a professional, which includes 40 doubles, 8 triples, and 23 home runs. Winker lacks the upside of many top prospects, but the Florida native has hit well at every level and profiles as a high-OBP left fielder with some power. Winker has a ways to go before he is ready to face big-league pitching, but he could be up in early 2016.
