Joey Butler has gotten off to a smoking hot start for Triple-A Durham, hitting .377 with 12 RBI in his first 17 games.

At 29, we wouldn't really consider Butler a prospect, but that doesn't make his performance any less noteworthy. A Quad-A player for most of his career, Butler was among the Rays' last cuts in spring training. Butler has 14 games of big league experience on his resume and will probably get another chance to contribute at that level later this year.

Cubs optioned RHP Brian Schlitter to Triple-A Iowa.

Schlitter has been touched up for six runs on 10 hits and two walks over 5 2/3 relief frames this season. The Cubs are going with another position player in Junior Lake in his place.
Apr 27 - 4:58 PM

Cubs recalled OF Junior Lake from Triple-A Iowa.

Lake was batting .289/.340/.333 in the early going at Iowa. He'll give the Cubbies a backup option at all three outfield spots.
Apr 27 - 4:57 PM

Astros recalled OF L.J. Hoes from Triple-A Fresno.

Hoes was off to a sizzling .418/.458/.618 start at Fresno. He'll back up at all three outfield positions for the Astros.
Apr 27 - 4:55 PM

Astros optioned RHP Asher Wojciechowski to Triple-A Fresno.

It's the second time he's been sent down in the last two weeks. Wojciechowski holds a 7.31 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over 16 innings this season. The Astros will have to bring someone else up later this week when they need a fifth starter.

Ryan Braun said that he's not absent from Monday's lineup due to injury.

Braun missed Sunday's game with an undisclosed physical issue, but he insists that him not being in there on Monday is a manager's decision. "We won yesterday, guys played well so run with it," Braun said." Wins are the most important thing. Both (Jordan) Schafer and Gerardo (Parra) played well," said Braun. Braun is batting just .230/.277/.279 with one homer in the early going this season.
Apr 27 - 4:51 PM

Jason Heyward (hamstring) is not in the Cardinals' lineup Monday.

Heyward revealed that he actually tweaked his left hamstring -- not left groin as previously reported -- on Sunday. The good news is that he expects to go through full workouts Monday and there would seem to be a good chance he'll be back out there Tuesday.. Mark Reynolds is getting a start in right field in Heyward's place Monday.
Apr 27 - 4:49 PM

Astros prospect Preston Tucker leads all Triple-A hitters with seven homers and 24 RBI this season.

If the season ended today, Tucker might be the Pacific League MVP. In 17 games for Fresno, Tucker has hit .314 with a stunning .643 slugging percentage. He's been a rockstar this year and the Astros have to be taking notice. If it doesn't happen before that, Tucker should be promoted to Houston when the rosters expand in September.
