Red sox prospect Teddy Stankiewicz threw seven scoreless innings on Sunday for Double-A Portland.

Stankiewicz struck out just three, but he scattered five hits and walked just two on his day. A 2013 second-round pick, Stankiewicz has struggled at times, but his 2017 campaign has given some reason for optimism. He has two above-average pitches in his fastball and slider, and his command has been much better this spring. He's still just 23, so there's reason to believe -- or at least hope -- he's found another gear.

Angels optioned 1B C.J. Cron to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cron gets the boot one day after hitting a grand slam against the Mets. The 27-year-old has missed time with a foot injury this season while batting just .232/.281/.305 through 24 games. The Angels can mix and match at first base with Luis Valbuena, Jefry Marte, and Albert Pujols.
May 22 - 2:42 PM

Padres prospect Luis Urias picked up three more hits on Sunday for Double-A San Antonio.

Could this be the best Urias? Probably not, but Luis is slowly becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. He's now hitting .344 for the Missions, and he's doing it as a teenager. If he can stay at shortstop he's a perennial All-Star, but no matter where he plays, he's relevant because he can really, really hit.

White Sox prospect Nick Burdi pitched a scoreless inning on Sunday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Burdi did allow a hit, but he also struck out two hitters. Those strikeouts give him 27 on the season, and he's done it in just under 18 innings. With one of the best fastballs in minor-league baseball and a plus slider, Burdi has the stuff to be a dominant closer. When you add in his above-average change? You could be looking at a special reliever.

Carlos Santana will start in right field Monday against the Reds in Cincinnati.

Santana will be pushed to right field with the designated hitter unavailable under National League rules. This will be Santana's fourth start in right field this season. Edwin Encarnacion is starting at first base and Bradley Zimmer is on the bench.
May 22 - 2:26 PM

Twins prospect Nick Gordon went 2-for-4 on Sunday for Double-A Chattanooga.

Both of Gordon's hits were doubles, and he scored two runs for good measure. He had been in a mini-slump coming into the game, but the overall numbers (.859 OPS) tell the story of how good the former first-round pick has been. You probably won't see him in 2017, but it's not longer a foregone conclusion that he won't get big-league time this year.
May 22 - 2:24 PM

Josh Donaldson (calf) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Dunedin.

Donaldson will be joined by teammate Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) in his return to action. The 31-year-old has been sidelined since aggravating his right calf strain on April 13, but he's finally ready for game action. Assuming all goes well, he should be ready to rejoin the Jays within a few days. Fantasy owners are hoping that the long wait will be worth it.
May 22 - 2:20 PM

Athletics prospect Matt Olson picked up four hits on Sunday for Triple-A Nashville.

Two of those hits went for extra bases, including his 10th homer of the season. A 2012 first-round pick, Olson has seen his stock decline in the past few years, but he's bounced back nicely in 2017. He's going to strike out a ton, but he might draw enough walks and hit enough bombs to compensate. Keep an eye on Olson going forward, he might be a potential steal.
