Twins 2B prospect Luis Arraez went 4-for-5 with a run scored on Monday for High-A Fort Myers on Monday.

All four hits were singles, and the stolen base was the second of the season for the second baseman. Arraez has a chance for a plus hit tool from the left-side of the plate. There isn't much power here -- and he's just fast enough to project to stay up the middle, so don't count on many steals -- but that talent could be enough to carry him to a regular role. A future .300 hitter at a middle-infield position can have fantasy value. He projects to join the Twins near the end of the decade.

Red Sox optioned RHP Justin Haley to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Robby Scott has been called up from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move. Haley tossed two scoreless innings last week in his lone appearance since his call-up earlier this month.

Red Sox recalled LHP Robby Scott from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Scott will rejoin Boston's bullpen after putting up a strong 1.48 ERA and 37/8 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings in Triple-A. The move gives the Red Sox a second left-hander out of the pen alongside Brian Johnson.

Astros OF prospect Kyle Tucker went 3-for-5 on Monday for Triple-A Fresno.

All three hits were singles. Tucker also stole a base on Monday for the Grizzlies, giving the 21-year-old outfielder 11 on the season. His average is now up to .294, and outside of a mini-slump near the end of May he's looked the part of an upper-echelon outfield prospect. Houston should give Tucker a chance to play at the highest level before the season is over.
Jun 19 - 1:26 PM

Astros RHP prospect Forrest Whitley struck out seven hitters over four scoreless innings on Monday for Double-A Corpus Christi.

Whitley has been sensational in his three starts back from a 50-game suspension, and he has yet to allow a run. He's showing four swing-and-miss pitches, and he's throwing them all for strikes. There's no guarantee that he gets a call-up to join the loaded Houston pitching staff this year, and even if he does it'll be in a bullpen role. His ability to miss bats would still make him fantasy relevant, and the long-term future is much, much brighter.
Jun 19 - 1:20 PM

Dodgers OF prospect Alex Verdugo went 3-for-4 with a homer and two doubles on Monday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The homer gives Verdugo six on the year, while the doubles are numbers 12 and 13 for the outfielder, respectively. He's been on an absolute tear since being sent back down to Oklahoma City, and now has his batting average up to .360 on the year. Even in a crowded outfield, at some point the Dodgers need to give him a chance to play regularly. If/when they do, he can help a fantasy team with his ability to hit for average and a little bit of pop for good measure.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon expects Javier Baez (elbow) to be available to start in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader vs. the Dodgers.

Baez already indicated that he would likely need just one day off after taking a pitch off his elbow Sunday. Maddon planned to check with Baez and the team trainer before officially putting him in the lineup for the nightcap, but the early signs are promising.
Jun 19 - 1:02 PM

Brock Stewart is expected to serve as the 26th man for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

The move will give the Dodgers a fresh arm out of the bullpen for the nightcap. Stewart has a 5.60 ERA over two starts and six relief appearances with the Dodgers this season.
