Rockies prospect 2B Forrest Wall (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list at Low-A Asheville on June 30.

Wall, 19, is in the middle of a strong full-season debut in South Atlantic League, batting .258/.342/.426 with six home runs, seven doubles, eight triples and 37 RBI to go along with 16 stolen bases in 23 attempts. And considering Asheville’s home park heavily favors left-handed hitters, it is good to see Wall has balanced home (.774 OPS) and road (.762 OPS) splits. Wall is among the top second-base prospects in the minor leagues.

Royals prospect RHP Kyle Zimmer has been promoted to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Zimmer’s season didn’t begin until late May as a result of setbacks in his recovery from a shoulder injury. However, the 22-year-old right-hander has been sharp over the last month while working out of the bullpen for Low-A Lexington, posting a 1.13 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 21/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 16 innings (nine appearances). He’ll now return to the Texas League, where he made four outstanding starts (18 2/3 IP, 1.93 ERA, 27/5 K/BB) at the end of the 2013 season. Zimmer has struggled to stay healthy during his career, but the 2012 first-rounder's upside is still huge.

Matt Harrison (back) said he's ready to return to the Rangers' starting rotation.

He scattered three runs over six innings Wednesday in his sixth rehab start for Triple-A Round Rock. Harrison's 30-day rehab window expires on Thursday so the Rangers have to make a decision on where he'll make his next start. They could go with a six-man rotation and address the situation after the All-Star break. Rookie Chi Chi Gonzalez has lost three of his last four starts and could be the odd man out when Harrison returns.
Jul 2 - 12:52 PM

The Astros will call up OF Alex Presley from Triple-A Fresno.

He's expected to replace George Springer, who left Wednesday night's game with a bruised wrist. The 29-year-old appeared in 89 games for Houston last season, batting .244 with six homers and 19 RBI. In 244 at-bats for Fresno this season, Presley has hit .308 with 10 steals and 35 RBI.
Jul 2 - 12:44 PM

Twins recalled INF Miguel Sano from Double-A Chattanooga.

Sano will take over as the Twins' regular designated hitter in Thursday's series opener against the Royals. The 22-year-old was sporting a .918 OPS with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 66 games this season at the Double-A level and he's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues for his massive power potential.
Jul 2 - 11:57 AM

Buster Posey (head) is starting at first base for the Giants on Thursday afternoon against the Marlins.

Posey left Wednesday's game after taking a foul ball off the center of his mask, but he passed a concussion test. He is batting cleanup Thursday against Jose Fernandez, who's making his first start in over 13 months.
Jul 2 - 11:30 AM

Braves recalled LHP Manny Banuelos from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Banuelos will make his major league debut Thursday in the Braves' series finale against the Nationals. The 24-year-old former top prospect has registered a strong 2.29 ERA and 69/38 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings this season for Gwinnett but probably isn't worth the one-time stream in most fantasy leagues. If he gets an extended look, that may change.
Jul 2 - 11:25 AM

Braves optioned RHP Ryan Kelly to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Kelly allowed a run on two hits in his one relief appearance with the Braves. He has posted very good numbers this year at Triple-A and should get another look soon.
