Astros OF/1B prospect Yordan Alvarez went 2-for-5 with a homer on Monday for Double-A Corpus Christi.

It's the eighth homer on the season for Alvarez, and it ups his slugging percentage on the 2018 season to a strong .581 in that time frame. Alvarez can also hit for average, as seen in his .308 mark on the year. There's much more value if he is able to play in the outfield, but even if he's a first baseman, the ability to hit for average and power make him an intriguing fantasy prospect that could help Houston in the coming years.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that trade interest is "building" for Blue Jays reliever Ryan Tepera.

Morosi notes that Tepera is under team control through 2021, so the Blue Jays don't have a sense of urgency to move him. Still, it makes sense to at least listen. Tepera, 30, owns an impressive 2.75 ERA and 38/12 K/BB ratio over 36 innings this season. He recently took over as the Jays' closer with Roberto Osuna away from the club following his arrest for allegedly assaulting a woman.

Angels LHP prospect Jose Suarez struck out eight hitters while allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings on Monday for Triple-A Salt Lake City.

He scattered five hits, and he walked just two with the aforementioned eight strikeouts. Suarez has reached Triple-A despite being just 20-years-old, and he hasn't done so with a big fastball (generally clocked in the low 90s) but rather with exceptional command and two plus secondary pitches. There are concerns about his build (5'10/170), but the stuff is there for Suarez to start. He's more high-floor than high-ceiling, however.

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.

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.
