Angels right-handed pitching prospect struck out all three batters he faced for Double-A Arkansas on Friday.

After a brief but solid second stint with the Angels, Bedrosian returned to the Texas League to strike out all three batters he faced in one inning, two swinging and one looking, on just 16 pitches, 11 of which were strikes. Bedrosian has the stuff and the bloodlines to be a closer (his father, Steve, has 184 saves for his career), and should be back up in the majors before the end of the season.

Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl went 4-for-6 with a double and three RBI for Low-A Asheville on Friday.

Dahl has not hit a home run since June 5, but has 16 doubles and a solid .339/.368/.465 line since then. He is hitting .301/.340/.503 for the season, and has hit nearly identically against lefties (.301/.313/.504) and righties (.301/.355/.502).

Jean Segura is not in the Brewers starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Segura has been dealing with leg cramps in recent days, so it appears the Brewers are just giving him an extra day to rest. Jeff Bianchi will draw the start at shortstop in his place and bat eighth against opposing hurler Adam Wainwright.

Astros recalled LHP Brett Oberholtzer from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Oberholtzer will join the Astros rotation in place of the injured Collin McHugh, and will take the hill against the Red Sox on Saturday. Over 11 starts with the Astros this season, he owns a 4.66 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 48/17 K/BB ratio over 63 2/3 innings. He makes for an unappealing streaming option in fantasy leagues.

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.

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.
