Rangers OF prospect Willie Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a homer on Thursday for Triple-A Round Rock.

It's just the second homer of the season for Calhoun, who currently owns a disappointing .708 OPS to begin the season. The 23-year-old has gotten off to slow starts before, so this shouldn't cause any type of long-term panic. He'll need to hit better soon if he's going to get the call to the Rangers, however.
Apr 20 - 1:54 PM

Orioles LHP prospect Keegan Akin struck out seven over six one-run innings on Thursday for Double-A Bowie.

It was easily Akin's best start of the 2018 campaign, as even with the quality outing his ERA sits at 4.80. The 54th pick of the 2016 draft, Akin shows an above-average fastball and slider, and he'll mix in a fringe-average change when he's operating at his best. His command comes and goes, and all three pitches vary in quality. He has a chance to pitch in a rotation, but he might profile best as a reliever.
Apr 20 - 1:44 PM

White Sox OF prospect Blake Rutherford went 4-for-5 with a run and a stolen bases for High-A Winston-Salem on Thursday.

The steal gives Rutherford three on the season. The former Yankees first-round pick is now hitting .404/.442/.563 on the season, which is good. He's not showing the power he showed as a prep, but he's hit seven doubles, and those should translate into homers as he gets stronger -- and the weather gets better. He could be an everyday player in the White Sox lineup before the end of the decade.

Diamondbacks signed RHP Brian Ellington to a minor league contract.

Ellington was released by the Marlins earlier this month. The hard thrower has big control issues but is certainly worthy of a flyer on a minor league deal. Ellington is currently recovering from a biceps injury and not ready to pitch yet.
Apr 20 - 1:36 PM

Yankees LHP prospect Justus Sheffield gave up two runs over six innings on Thursday in his start for Double-A Trenton.

Sheffield walked two, and he struck out eight. Acquired from Cleveland in the Andrew Miller deal, Sheffield can miss bats with his fastball/slider combination, and he also shows a quality change on occasion as well. His command has unfortunately gone backwards, but it still should be good enough to start. If not, Sheffield could be a terrific reliever, but that should be a long ways away, if ever.
Apr 20 - 1:30 PM

Phillies OF prospect Mickey Moniak went 3-for-5 on Thursday for High-A Clearwater.

All three hits were singles for the first pick of the 2016 draft. Moniak, 19, has gotten off to a slow start in his professional career, and the three-hit day "raised" his average to .200 in the Florida State League. He still has above-average speed and is a competent defender in the outfield, and as a prep, he showed the makings of a plus hit tool. It's just too soon to give up on Moniak in dynasty leagues, but he needs to show marked improvement in 2018 to justify being the first selection.
Apr 20 - 1:22 PM

Brewers RHP prospect Corbin Burnes struck out nine over 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his start on Thursday for Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Burnes allowed just three hits, and he walked one. A fourth-round pick in 2016 out of St. Mary's, Burnes has seen his stock elevate quickly thanks to his three above-average pitches -- and a solid fourth as well -- and his ability to locate them where he wants to. The 23-year-old looks like he's close to ready for big-league action, and he could be starting games for Milwaukee by the end of the season.
Apr 20 - 1:14 PM

Dodgers C prospect Keibert Ruiz went 4-for-5 on Thursday for Double-A Tulsa.

Ruiz also scored two runs. The 19-year-old backstop has more than held his own at the Double-A level, hitting .286 with two homers over his first 11 games in the Texas League. He has a chance to hit for average because of his quick, compact right-handed swing, and there should be some more power coming as he gets stronger. This is a high-upside catching prospect who also has some safety because he's a quality defender behind the plate. He could be the everyday catcher by the summer of 2019.
