Dodgers RHP prospect Chase De Jong fired seven scoreless innings Tuesday in a win for Double-A Tulsa.

De Jong finished with six strikeouts and didn't allow a walk. The 22-year-old has really been on a roll lately. He's 3-1 with a 0.72 ERA over his last four starts. De Jong is tied for the league lead in WHIP (0.92) and also ranks second in the Texas League with 49 strikeouts. The right-hander will take a 17-inning scoreless streak into his next start.

Phillies 1B prospect Rhys Hoskins belted a walk-off grand slam in Tuesday's win for Double-A Reading.

It was his only hit of the night. Hoskins got off to a slow start but has looked better over his last nine games, hitting .353 with nine RBI during that span. Hoskins has done a lot of swinging and missing this year—he's tied for fourth in the Eastern League with 48 strikeouts—but he's offset his low contact rate by producing solid power numbers. The 23-year-old is fifth in the league in homers (eight) and seventh in RBI (30).

According to FOX Sports' Jon Morosi, the Blue Jays will activate Devon Travis (shoulder) on Wednesday.

Travis went 1-for-5 with an RBI double Tuesday at Triple-A Buffalo in what will go down as his final minor league rehab game. The dynamic second baseman hasn't made a plate appearance for the Blue Jays since last July 28, when his left shoulder began barking for the second time. He would eventually require major surgery, but his rehab from that procedure was relatively smooth. Travis, 25, carries big-time fantasy upside and should be owned in most mixed leagues.

Phillies OF prospect Roman Quinn matched a career-high with four hits Tuesday in a win for Double-A Reading.

He also reached base on a walk while scoring four of Reading's 11 runs in a come-from-behind win over Erie. All four hits were singles. Quinn has swung a hot bat recently, hitting .393 with 12 runs scored during his seven-game hitting streak. The 23-year-old now ranks second in the Eastern League in steals (21) behind Harrisburg outfielder Rafael Bautista.

Denard Span has been scratched from the Giants' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Padres.

No word yet on the reason for the sudden absence. Gregor Blanco is now starting in center field and batting leadoff against Padres right-hander James Shields. Kelby Tomlinson will get a rate start in left field.

Cardinals RHP prospect Jake Woodford spun eight shutout frames Tuesday in a win for Low-A Peoria.

He struck out five and allowed just four hits in his longest start of the season. Woodford retired 11 hitters in a row at one point between the third and seventh innings. The 19-year-old hasn't allowed an earned run since May 3. He's won his last three starts while trimming his ERA from 3.68 to 2.22. The No. 39 pick in last year's draft has made an immediate impact in Peoria and could be headed for a promotion soon.

Wil Myers (forearm) is out again Wednesday.

Myers felt discomfort in his troublesome left forearm late Monday while picking up a baseball. It's not considered a serious setback, but the Padres will play it cautiously just in case. Brett Wallace is at first base Wednesday versus Giants righty Jake Peavy.

Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with back spasms.

Cabrera left Wednesday's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the first inning, with Matt Reynolds taking over at shortstop. Asdrubal apparently felt the discomfort during pregame warmups. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but you never know with the Mets and their recent rash of back issues.
