Yankees pitching prospect Jordan Montgomery tossed a career-high seven innings Saturday in a win for Low-A Charleston.

An amazing 57 of his 69 pitches went for strikes. Montgomery has now allowed one run or fewer in each of his last four starts, trimming his ERA from 3.80 to 2.27 during that span. The 22-year-old has put on muscle since college, adding velocity to his low 90s fastball. The South Carolina alum ranks second in the South Atlantic League with 50 strikeouts.

Blue Jays pitching prospect Matt Boyd racked up eight strikeouts Saturday in a win for Double-A New Hampshire.

Boyd is undefeated over his last seven starts, going 4-0 in that span with a 1.29 ERA. The 24-year-old left-hander leads the Eastern League in both ERA (1.05) and strikeouts (56). He also owns the league's third-lowest WHIP (0.84). With nothing left to prove in Double-A, it's only a matter of time before Boyd gets called up to Buffalo.

Brian Dozier hit a pair of home runs and drove in four in Sunday's 8-1 win over the White Sox.

Dozier's been on a tear this month and the hot bat wasn't cooling on Sunday. He hit a solo shot off Jose Quintana in the first, then smashed a three-run bomb off Scott Carroll in the seventh to finish 2-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored. With the recent stretch of offensive goodness, Dozier's hitting .253/.335/.506 with nine homers, 24 RBI and three steals.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.
May 24 - 5:27 PM

Mets shortstop prospect Gavin Cecchini went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Saturday for Double-A Binghamton.

Cecchini homered in the first and tied the score in the ninth with an RBI double. The 21-year-old has hit .381 during his five-game hitting streak. He's now ninth in the Eastern League in slugging (.492) and tenth in OPS (.853). The former first-round pick has struck out just 11 times in 122 at-bats this season.

Kyle Gibson pitched a strong game in Sunday's 8-1 win over the White Sox, striking out eight and managing eight innings of four-hit, one-run ball.

With the win, Gibson improved to 4-3 on the season. The only run against him came when he served up a solo homer to Jose Abreu. Other than that, Gibson was simply superb. The White Sox had no answer for him. Neither has most of the rest of baseball this season, as Gibson boasts a 2.72 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 27/17 over 56 1/3 innings. Perhaps the best takeaway from Sunday's start was that he did not walk a batter. We still question his long-term viability as a reliable fantasy starter, but if he's able to keep the walks down, the ERA is less likely to jump the tracks. A home start against the Blue Jays is up next for Gibson.

Jose Quintana pitched abysmally in a loss to the Twins on Sunday, allowing seven runs (six earned) in six innings.

Quintana was plagued by two big innings, as the Twins scored four in the fourth inning and another three in the seventh (two of which were charged to his line). For the game, he struck out five and walked one while allowing seven hits. The loss moved his record to a dismal 2-5 and his 4.67 ERA and 1.35 WHIP aren't particularly encouraging. He'll try to pitch better when the White Sox take to the road against the Astros next Friday.
May 24 - 5:15 PM

Giants pitching prospect Tyler Beede evened his record at 2-2 Saturday with a win for High-A San Jose.

Beede fired six shutout innings, striking out three with one walk. Saturday's performance came six days after Beede's worst start of the season, a four-run, nine-hit no-decision against Visalia. Saturday, which also happened to be Beede's 22nd birthday, was the right-hander's first scoreless outing since April 9.
