Red Sox third base prospect Rafael Devers went 2-for-5 with a walk for the rookie-level GCL Red Sox on Friday.

Devers has gone 11-for-22 with three doubles, one triple, one home run, and three walks since he was promoted to the Gulf Coast League. He projects as a .300 hitter with 20 home runs, though he is likely to need to move to first base or left field as he fills out. Also, Devers is unlikely to reach the major leagues before early-2017, if not 2018, not that the Red Sox have a lack of third base options.

Astros placed RHP Collin McHugh on the 15-day disabled list with a right fingernail avulsion.

McHugh sustained the injury during his last start. He had originally hoped to be ready in time to pitch on Saturday, but the Astros will play things safely and hold him out until after the All-Star break. Brett Oberholtzer will get the start in his place against the Red Sox.

Mariners 3B prospect D.J. Peterson went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk for Double-A Jackson on Friday, raising his Double-A line to .290/.333/.500.

After a slow start, Peterson is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak during which he has hit .367/.406/.733 with two doubles and three home runs. He has the potential to be a middle of the order slugger who hits 20-plus home runs on an annual basis since Raul Ibanez in the mid-2000s. Peterson will likely spend the rest of the season in Jackson, and should be playing for the Mariners at some point in 2015.
Jul 12 - 11:18 AM

Cubs prospect first baseman Dan Vogelbach went 2-for-5 with a double for High-A Daytona on Friday, raising his season line to .274/.362/.427.

After a great June in which he hit .319/.429/.553 with 10 doubles and four home runs, Vogelbach has struggled in July, hitting .226/.316/.290 with two doubles over nine games. For the season, he has hit a robust .311/.391/.519 against right-handed pitching but just .198/.302/.238 against lefties. Due to his defensive limitations (his natural defensive position is DH), he may end up as a left-handed bat off the bench or a part of a platoon.

Indians recalled Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus.

He will return to the Indians rotation on Saturday against the White Sox, taking the place of the injured Justin Masterson. He owns a 5.89 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 43/19 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings with the Tribe this season.
Jul 12 - 11:07 AM

Pirates shortstop prospect JaCoby Jones went 1-for-3 for Low-A West Virginia on Friday, extending his hitting streak to 13 games.

Jones has hit .500/.528/.917 with two doubles and six home runs during his hitting streak, and is hitting .297/.363/.493 with 14 doubles, one triple, and 14 home runs for the season. Like many young hitters, he needs to work on his pitch recognition and make more consistent contact, but he has the talent to be a solid shortstop who hits for some power and steals bases.
Jul 12 - 11:05 AM

Indians optioned RHP Vinnie Pestano to Triple-A Columbus.

He has struggled in his limited time with the Indians this season, posting a 5.00 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and .333 batting average against over his first nine innings. He'll surely return at some point after the All-Star break.
Jul 12 - 11:05 AM

Marlins third base prospect Colin Moran went 3-for-4 with a double for High-A Jupiter on Friday, raising his season line to .303/.347/.408.

Moran's big day brought his batting average above the magical .300 mark for the first time since going 2-for-4 in the first game of the season. After hitting .337/.376/.485 in June, Moran has remained hot in July, hitting .342/.390/.421. Moran could be in line for a promotion to Double-A Jacksonville before the end of the season, and could be manning the hot corner in Miami as soon as mid-2015.
