Athletics prospect third baseman Renato Nunez went 3-for-4 with a home run and a walk for High-A Stockton on Monday, raising his season line to .287/.350/.562.

The 20-year old Nunez has been raking since the beginning of June, putting up a .340/.412/.712 line with 11 doubles, one triple, and 15 home runs. He profiles as a solid major league starter with some power and below-average defense, which may force him to first base in the future.

Mets shortstop prospect went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base for short season-A Brooklyn on Monday.

The 18-year old Rosario is hitting .281/.340/.344 in the NY-Penn League, but has 12 errors in 35 games at shortstop, good for a .907 fielding percentage. He lacks the upside of teammate and first-round pick Michael Conforto, but has the talent to turn into a good defensive shortstop who hits .300.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Blue Jays are showing interest in re-acquiring Rangers outfielder Alex Rios.

It's interesting, since the Blue Jays let Rios go for nothing to the White Sox in 2009, but they are considering a reunion now that they are starving for offense and his contract doesn't look nearly as bad as it once did. He's making $12.5 million this season and his contract includes a $13.5 million team option for 2015. The Rangers will almost certainly pick it up if they keep him, so they'd likely want a sizable return. The Royals and Mariners are among the other teams who have interest in Rios.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Phillies right-hander A.J. Burnett would prefer to be dealt to the Pirates and that Pittsburgh players are lobbying for his return.

Burnett made a bit of an awkward exit from Pittsburgh when he signed with the Phillies during the offseason, but it's water under the bridge at this point. However, one possible hangup in a deal is his player option for 2015. He's currently at 21 starts this season, but his 2015 salary would rise to $8.5 million at 24 starts, $10 million at 27, $11.75 million at 30 and a maximum of $12.75 million if he makes it to 32 starts.

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double for Double-A Chattanooga on Monday.

Seager went 1-for-6 with four strikeouts in his Double-A debut, but has gone 3-for-10 in his first two games in the Southern League. For the season, he hit .352/.411/.633 with 34 doubles, two triples, and 18 home runs over 80 games with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Seager is likely to finish the season in Double-A, and could reach the major leagues no earlier than late-2015.
Jul 22 - 12:30 PM

Angels first base prospect C.J. Cron went 2-for-4 with a walk in his return to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

Cron hit .269/.297/.480 during his time in the majors, but just .233/.258/.383 over his last 15 games. It appears that the Angels are trying to keep an extra reliever on their roster, and Cron could be back up in the next few weeks, and no later than September 1.
Jul 22 - 12:27 PM

Braves second base prospect Jose Peraza went 3-for-4 with a walk and three stolen bases for Double-A Mississippi on Monday.

Peraza has back-to-back three hit games, and has hit .368/.395/.474 over his first 26 games in the Southern League. The Braves opened the season hoping for a bounceback year from Dan Uggla. They now have Tommy La Stella manning the keystone, with Jose Peraza waiting in the wings.
Jul 22 - 12:21 PM

Esmil Rogers is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

Rogers was outrighted off the 40-man roster back in May, but the Blue Jays need a fresh arm in their bullpen. The 28-year-old owns a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level this season and figures to pitch in long relief.
