Rays prospect Brendan McKay pitched three shutout innings on Sunday for short-season Hudson Valley.

He can pitch. He can hit. He can field. He can't run. McKay is the best two-way prospect we've seen in a long, long time; with apologies to Hunter Greene. You should still expect him to do one thing or another -- and right now the odds are he's gonna pitch -- but the fact that he's holding his own as both is pretty special.

Padres prospect Luis Urias homered on Sunday for Double-A El Paso.

That homer gives Urias three on the season. Power is not a big part of Urias's game, but it doesn't have to be for him to be fantasy relevant. He has one of the best projected hit tools in all of baseball. He's spending just as much time at second as he is at shortstop right now, and while he'd be more valuable on the third-base side of the bag, he's an everyday player either way.

Twins prospect Stephen Gonsalves gave up six runs in just three innings of work on Sunday for Triple-A Rochester.

Gonsalves gave up eight hits, walked three, and struck out one. He also gave up three homers. It's a small sample size, but in his three starts since the promotion, he has given up 16 hits in 16 innings, and the ERA sits at 5.08. That's mostly due to this last outing, but it's still a bummer considering how good he was at Double-A Chattanooga. The upside is undeniable, but you probably won't see it in Minnesota until 2018.

Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford picked up three hits on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

All three hits for singles. Crawford has been crushing the ball since July, so a three-hit game is no surprise. What was surprising was that for the first time in his career, he played third base. He's no longer a plus-plus defender at short, but he's still a competent defender at the premium position. What this (might) tell us is that the Phillies want to expand his flexibility. If Crawford wasn't hitting this well, that wouldn't happen. This is a good sign.

Twins prospect Royce Lewis went 4-for-6 on Sunday for Low-A Cedar Rapids.

Since being promoted from the Gulf Coast League, Lewis has 14 hits in 35 at-bats; good for a .400 average, which is good. He's also stolen two bases. The only thing he hasn't shown yet is much patience -- zero walks -- or power with just one extra-base hits. That's nitpicking, though; Lewis has been outstanding since going first-overall in June's draft.
Aug 21 - 1:27 PM

Athletics prospect A.J. Puk gave up one run over six innings on Sunday for Double-A Midland.

Puk allowed five hits and two walks, and he struck out seven. His 4.91 ERA in Midland isn't ideal, but he's struck out 68 hitters in just over 51 innings, and that he's kept the ball in the park (3 homers in 112 1/3 innings all year). He's not a finished product, but he should be ready to pitch in the Athletic rotation by the middle of next year.

The Rangers have Ryan Rua en route to Anaheim in case Joey Gallo needs to go on the disabled list because of his nasal fracture.

Gallo was hurt in a collision with Matt Bush on Sunday. Rua would enter the DH mix with catchers Brett Nicholas and Robinson Chirinos if Gallo is forced to the DL. We'll probably know more later this afternoon.

Phillies prospect Scott Kingery went 3-for-4 with a homer on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The homer is the eighth since Kingery was promoted to Triple-A, and his 26th overall. This was the 48th pick in the 2015 draft, so it's not like this came completely out of nowhere. Having said that, no one could have seen him becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. With the Phillies destined for a two-two pick, there's no reason to not see what Kingery can do at the highest level.
