Athletics RHP prospect Brett Graves took a perfect game into the seventh inning Wednesday in a win for High-A Stockton.

He retired the first 18 batters he faced before surrendering a leadoff single to High Desert center fielder Scott Heineman in the seventh inning. Graves allowed just the one hit over eight shutout frames while recording a single strikeout. He didn't walk anyone. The 23-year-old hasn't been anything special this year (5-8, 5.11 ERA in 21 outings) but maybe Wednesday's impressive outing we'll give him the fuel he needs to turn things around.

Astros RHP prospect Francis Martes allowed just one hit and two walks over seven scoreless innings Wednesday in a win for Double-A Corpus Christi.

Martes retired 17 of the last 18 hitters he faced while matching a season-high with nine strikeouts. The victory snapped a four-game winless streak for the right-hander. Martes has now fanned 89 hitters this year, which ranks eighth in the Texas League. The 20-year-old holds a respectable 3.76 ERA over 19 appearances (16 starts) this season.

Cardinals RHP prospect Jake Woodford scattered five hits and two runs over seven innings Wednesday in a no-decision for Low-A Peoria.

He delivered a season-high nine strikeouts and didn't walk anyone. The seven-inning effort was his longest since May 24 when he logged eight scoreless frames in a win over Kane County. The 19-year-old has been one of the better hurlers in the Midwest League this season with 66 strikeouts and a 2.81 ERA. Despite his success, Woodford hasn't won a start since June 5 while being plagued by poor run support.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Jonathan Lucroy is getting a scheduled day of rest Thursday.

The trade buzz began swirling when Milwaukee's lineup card for Thursday afternoon's game against the Diamondbacks showed Martin Maldonado at catcher instead of Lucroy, but there's nothing to see here. Yet. Lucroy is reportedly drawing interest from the Rangers, Indians, Astros, Mets, and Red Sox, and will almost certainly be dealt before the August 1 deadline.

Trayce Thompson (back) began swinging off a tee on Wednesday.

And he said he's hoping to begin a minor league rehab assignment sometime next week. Thompson landed on the disabled list July 16, retroactive to July 11, with lower back irritation. He was slashing .225/.302/.436 with 13 homers and five stolen bases through 80 games this season for Los Angeles.

Astros OF prospect Kyle Tucker belted a solo home run Wednesday in a loss for Low-A Quad Cities.

The blast came off his former high school teammate Jake Woodford. It was Tucker's only hit of the night. The 2015 first-round pick hasn't hit for much power this year—Wednesday's round-tripper was only his third in 307 at-bats—but he's been a productive base stealer with 30 thefts on 36 attempts. That total is good for second-most in the Midwest League.

Marlins reinstated 2B Dee Gordon from suspension.

Gordon will return to the Marlins' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals after missing the last 80 games while serving out a performance-enhancing suspension. He didn't hit the ball very well on his minor league rehab assignment, but the 28-year-old second baseman is obviously capable of having a huge fantasy impact down the stretch this season. Derek Dietrich will be shifted into more of a utility role.

Yankees OF prospect Blake Rutherford registered a career-high six hits Wednesday in a loss for Rookie-level Pulaski.

Rutherford's four base knocks weren't enough for the Yankees to steal a win against Elizabethton, but the 19-year-old did up his season average from .310 to .342. He's hit safely in eight of his last nine games with a .442 average during that stretch. The Yankees selected Rutherford with the 18th overall pick in last month's draft after a successful high school career at Chaminade Prep in California.
