Phillies OF prospect Nick Williams homered on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

It's the fifth homer of the season for Williams. After struggling for most of 2016, he has unfortunately continued that trend. The approach remains a mess, and he's not making enough hard contact to compensate for the lack of walks. At this point, Williams looks more like a reclamation project than an actual prospect. That's disappointing.

White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada is having his sore left thumb examined Monday in Chicago.

It's considered a routine exam, so there's no cause for concern. No structural damage was found through X-rays and an MRI, so he should be back in action fairly soon. The 21-year-old was batting .331/.401/.504 with six homers and 10 steals through 34 games in Triple-A prior to the injury. His time is coming soon.

Angels recalled INF Nolan Fontana from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Fontana will replace C.J. Cron on the active roster. The 25-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Astros over the winter and was batting .265/.374/.426 with five home runs and 25 RBI through 38 games this season in Triple-A.

Red sox prospect Teddy Stankiewicz threw seven scoreless innings on Sunday for Double-A Portland.

Stankiewicz struck out just three, but he scattered five hits and walked just two on his day. A 2013 second-round pick, Stankiewicz has struggled at times, but his 2017 campaign has given some reason for optimism. He has two above-average pitches in his fastball and slider, and his command has been much better this spring. He's still just 23, so there's reason to believe -- or at least hope -- he's found another gear.

Angels optioned 1B C.J. Cron to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Cron gets the boot one day after hitting a grand slam against the Mets. The 27-year-old has missed time with a foot injury this season while batting just .232/.281/.305 through 24 games. Still, he didn't get much of a leash after putting up a .792 OPS (115 OPS+) last season. The Angels can mix and match at first base with Luis Valbuena, Jefry Marte, and Albert Pujols.
May 22 - 2:42 PM

Padres prospect Luis Urias picked up three more hits on Sunday for Double-A San Antonio.

Could this be the best Urias? Probably not, but Luis is slowly becoming one of the best infield prospects in baseball. He's now hitting .344 for the Missions, and he's doing it as a teenager. If he can stay at shortstop he's a perennial All-Star, but no matter where he plays, he's relevant because he can really, really hit.
May 22 - 2:35 PM

White Sox prospect Nick Burdi pitched a scoreless inning on Sunday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Burdi did allow a hit, but he also struck out two hitters. Those strikeouts give him 27 on the season, and he's done it in just under 18 innings. With one of the best fastballs in minor-league baseball and a plus slider, Burdi has the stuff to be a dominant closer. When you add in his above-average change? You could be looking at a special reliever.
May 22 - 2:28 PM

Carlos Santana will start in right field Monday against the Reds in Cincinnati.

Santana will be pushed to right field with the designated hitter unavailable under National League rules. This will be Santana's fourth start in right field this season. Edwin Encarnacion is starting at first base and Bradley Zimmer is on the bench.
