Braves prospect RHP Cody Martin turned in his best start of the season Tuesday, allowing two hits and a walk with nine strikeouts in 5 2/3 scoreless innings for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Martin, a seventh-round draft pick in 2011 out of Gonzaga, split the 2013 season between Double- and Triple-A, posting a 3.16 ERA and 137/58 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 136 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old lacks a high ceiling despite a 10.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 290 career minor league innings, but he's still likely to be called on this season should the Braves need another starter.

Astros prospect RHP Mike Foltynewicz turned in his best start of the season on Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits in five innings for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The 22-year-old made it through 3 1/3 innings in the outing for the first time this year and struck out a season-high six batters. In his three previous starts, Foltynewicz had allowed nine earned runs on 11 hits in seven innings with a 5/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The right-hander has power stuff, with a fastball that routinely touches triple digits, but his control remains a work in progress and could ultimately determine his future role in the major leagues. Foltynewicz's Tuesday start was a step in the right direction, and he's likely to debut for the Astros (in some capacity) later this season.

Mets purchased the contract of RHP Daisuke Matsuzaka from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Matsuzaka posted a 2.25 ERA with 12 strikeouts over his first 12 innings at Triple-A. The plan for now is to use him in long relief, but he could get a start if Jenrry Mejia (blister) isn't ready to go the next time out.
Apr 16 - 1:21 PM

Mets sent LHP John Lannan outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Lannan's move to the bullpen didn't go well, as he posted a 15.75 ERA over five relief appearances. He has the option to elect free agency rather than accept the minor league assignment. The Mets will try Daisuke Matsuzaka as a long reliever instead.
Apr 16 - 1:19 PM

Marlins prospect LHP Andrew Heaney was outstanding on Tuesday, allowing just a hit and walk while striking out five in six scoreless innings for Double-A Jacksonville.

After giving up three runs on 10 hits in his season debut, Heaney, 22, has been lights out in his last two starts, allowing five total hits in 12 shutout frames with a 13/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Given Heaney's success in Double-A dating back to last season, it might not be long until he receives a promotion to the major leagues.
Apr 16 - 1:18 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that he expects Curtis Granderson (ribs) back in the lineup on Saturday.

Granderson injured his ribs, forearm and knee when he collided with the wall during Monday's game. He's missing a second straight start Wednesday and evidently will sit out Friday, as well, following Thursday's off day. The offseason signee will return to a .170/.291/.319 batting line with one homer and four RBI on Saturday.
Apr 16 - 1:16 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that Bartolo Colon (back) will be fine to make his start on Saturday.

Colon dealt with a back issue during his last outing, which had Saturday's start up in the air. Evidently, though, the rotund right-hander has progressed enough to where his availability for the start versus the Braves over the weekend isn't in question.
Apr 16 - 1:09 PM

Dodgers prospect OF Joc Pederson had huge game on Tuesday, going 4-for-4 with a two home runs, a double, walk and five RBI for Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 21-year-old is off to a ridiculous start this season, as he's now batting .442/.564/.844 with four doubles, five home runs, four steals and a 9/12 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 12 games. Pederson is playing like he's ready for an audition in the major leagues, but he's doubtful to get the call anytime soon without an injury to one of the Dodgers' current outfielders. For that same reason, expect Pederson to be one of the top prospect trade targets this season.
