Dodgers prospect Alex Verdugo went 2-for-5 with a double on Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He also scored a run. Verdugo still isn't hitting for power, but it's tough to complain too much about a .321 average and a .402 on-base percentage. There is average power potential in his left-handed bat, so the homers should start to come. Even if they don't, he might have a chance to play everyday because of the advanced hit tool.

Kenta Maeda (hamstring) will start for the Dodgers on Thursday night against the Cardinals.

Maeda allowed three runs -- one earned -- over four innings in a rehab start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga last Friday. He was on a nice roll before landing on the disabled list May 11 with a hamstring injury and attributed it to a change in approach. "I think I was relying too much on my four-seamer, throwing it hard and not focusing enough on getting hitters out quickly," Maeda told the Orange County Register on Wednesday night. "I think, looking back, I’m now relying on moving the ball more and making sure I’m more efficient. … I’ve come to realize I am not a power pitcher."

Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford went 0-for-5 with an RBI on Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The hitless day drops Crawford's average to .180. The only positive for his 2017 season is that he's still drawing walks, but the on-base percentage is still under .300. The defense makes Crawford a lock for the big-leagues, but there's nothing that's happened over the past year that suggests you'd want to start him on your fantasy team.
May 25 - 1:31 PM

Brewers prospect Isan Diaz homered on Wednesday for High-A Carolina.

It's the eighth homer of the season for Diaz. After a slow start, the left-handed hitting shortstop has bounced back nicely, and is once again putting up quality power numbers for a middle-infielder. Whether he plays short, third or second, Diaz has a chance to be a fantasy starter because of his offensive upside. He should be big-league ready by the end of 2018.

Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres went 0-for-3 on Wednesday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

Torres didn't pick up any hits, but he did walk twice and steal his first base since being promoted to Trenton. It just goes to show you that a player like him can help your fantasy team even when the hits aren't falling. It'll be a lot of fun to see how he adjusts to Triple-A pitching over the coming weeks.

Nationals prospect Erick Fedde pitched a scoreless inning of relief on Wednesday for Double-A Harrisburg.

Fedde was converted to the bullpen last week, and so far, he's looked good in the role. Keep in mind that this is likely a short-term move, as Fedde certainly has the stuff to start. The Nationals need the bullpen help, however, and with three pitches that can miss bats, he could definitely help that group.
May 25 - 1:12 PM

Braves prospect Ronald Acuna went 2-for-4 on Wednesday for Double-A Mississippi.

One of those hits was a homer, which gives him three since being promoted to the Southern League. There might not be a player who has seen his stock soar more than Acuna this spring, and he wasn't exactly an unknown coming into the year. He's still only 19, but it's starting to look like there's a real chance he makes his debut in 2018. He could be a great fantasy outfielder if he realizes his potential.
May 25 - 1:09 PM

Phillies prospect Rhys Hoskins went 3-for-3 with a homer on Wednesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

One of those hits was a homer -- his 13th of the season -- and Hoskins also doubled and scored four runs. Not a bad afternoon. He's been one of the best performers in minor-league baseball, and with the Phillies way out of contention, you have to think they'll give him a chance to play sooner or later. It should be sooner.
