Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun hit his 22nd homer of the season for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

It was Calhoun's only hit of the day, but any game that features a homer is a pretty good one. He's been the subject of several trade rumors, and with Clayton Kershaw and Brandon McCarthy hitting the disabled list, those trade rumors are likely to pick up. As a second baseman who can hit for average and power, he should be able to headline a package, and you can understand why the Dodgers are hesitant to move him.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the initial prognosis suggests that Clayton Kershaw (back) will miss 4-6 weeks.

We'll have a better idea about the official timetable after Kershaw sees Dr. Robert Watkins, but this would place his return somewhere around the start of September. On the bright side, it doesn't appear to be as serious as the back injury he dealt with last year. The Dodgers are cruising in the NL West and should be fine, but it's a tough blow for fantasy owners.

Mets prospect Dominic Smith hit his 14th homer of the year on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Smith also singled. There have not been many hitters better than Smith in the month of July, and his OPS for the month is now 1.106. He's also a solid defender at first, so no, you're not looking at a future DH. Not yet, anyway. If/when the Mets deal Lucas Duda, Smith should get the call. He's ready.

Twins recalled RHP Alan Busenitz from Triple-A Rochester.

Busenitz, 26, has a 2.08 ERA over six appearances with the Twins this season. He'll operate in middle relief in his return to the big club.
Jul 24 - 1:13 PM

Twins designated LHP Craig Breslow for assignment.

The Twins took a shot on a retooled Breslow over the winter, but he has struggled with a 5.23 ERA over 30 appearances this season and has also missed time due to injury. Alan Busenitz will take his spot on the active roster.
Jul 24 - 1:10 PM

Rays prospect Brent Honeywell gave up two runs over five innings for Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

Honeywell allowed only four hits over those five innings, and he struck out 11 while walking just one. It was a sensational start for the Rays' top pitching prospect, and he looks like he's ready to contribute to a big-league staff. The Rays are certainly in contention, and an arm like Honeywell could help put them into one of the two wild card spots.
Jul 24 - 1:08 PM

White Sox prospect Eloy Jimenez went 5-for-6 with a homer on Sunday for High-A Winston Salem.

The homer is the second since the trade, and he's now hitting .452 with an .816 slugging percentage with Winston Salem. He's just too good a hitter to be at the lower levels right now. The White Sox should give him a chance to face Double-A pitching before the end of the year. He'll be hitting in Chicago before the end of 2018, and hitting well.
Jul 24 - 1:04 PM

White Sox prospect right-hander Zack Burdi will undergo Tommy John surgery this week.

Burdi was recently diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament and made a final decision on surgery after going for a second opinion. The 2016 first-rounder will be sidelined until late 2018 at the earliest.
