Brewers prospect Corey Ray went 2-for-5 on Sunday for High-A Carolina.

Both hits were singles. Ray isn't having a terrible year in the Carolina League (.260/.340/.407), but he hasn't lived up to the lofty expectations just yet. There above-average to plus tools across the board offensively, but he's had more issues with swing-and-miss than anticipated. He's still one of the best outfield prospects in baseball, he's just not the fast-track player we thought he was. Not yet, anyway.

Tigers prospect Matt Manning hurled five shutout innings on Sunday for short-season Connecticut.

Manning allowed just three hits and two walks in those five innings, and he struck out five. It's only his second start of the season, but he's yet to give up a run, and he's struck out 14 batters in just over nine innings. There's a lot of work to be done, but the Tigers first-round pick from 2016 has tremendous upside, and could be a top of the rotation starter if everything goes to plan.

A.J. Pollock (groin, quad) will play his next rehab game with Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

Pollock recently took a break from his rehab stint after tweaking his quad a week ago, but he played four innings and took three at-bats on Sunday. Barring any further setbacks, he's likely a few days away from rejoining the Diamondbacks.

Rangers prospect Yohander Mendez gave up three runs in five innings of work on Sunday for Double-A Frisco.

Mendez also walked four, but he was able to strike out seven. The left-hander is no longer the consensus top pitching prospect in the system, but he does have two pitches that can miss bats in a fastball that touches 95 and a quality change. He also has shown plus command before, but that hasn't been apparent in 2017. He should be a member of someone's rotation by this point in 2018.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, if the Rays assume all of Adeiny Hechavarria's salary in a trade, they'd like the Marlins to include "a nice, cheap power arm."

Crasnick mentions Kyle Barraclough as a potential fit, though it's unclear whether the two sides have discussed him. That sounds pretty extreme for the Marlins to give him up just to part with the remainder of Hechavarria's $4.35 million salary for this season. Either way, if the Marlins want teams to pick up his salary, they aren't going to get much in return. Crasnick reports that talks between the Marlins and Rays are "about to come to a head" while Bob Nightengale of USA Today hears that the two sides are optimistic they'll complete a deal Monday.

Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a homer on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The homer gives Calhoun 16 on the season. If it wasn't for defensive concerns, you'd likely already see him in a Dodger uniform; both the hit and power tools are plus, and there's very little he needs to work on at this point. Unfortunately, those defensive issues are there, so it's not likely you see him up in Los Angeles until rosters expand. Still, the offensive potential is so good that he's a must-have in dynasty leagues, and worth keeping an eye on in re-drafts.

Cardinals prospect Jack Flaherty gave up eight hits and five runs on Sunday for Triple-A Memphis.

Flaherty also walked three and struck out five. It's one of the worst starts of the year for Flaherty, who has been outstanding for most of the 2017 campaign. He's still striking out over a batter an inning, but the command hasn't been quite as good since his promotion to Memphis. The Cardinals appear to have no shot at the postseason, so Flaherty and a few other arms should get a chance to pitch down the stretch. Of those arms, Flaherty has the highest floor, and maybe the highest upside.

Randal Grichuk will bat second Monday against the Reds.

This comes after he slugged a long home run out of the cleanup spot in his return to the majors on Sunday. Grichuk should see semi-regular playing time with Dexter Fowler sidelined. While he's a batting average risk, the power makes him worth a look in mixed leagues again.
