Rockies prospect Tyler Nevin went 5-for-5 on Sunday for Low-A Asheville.

Two of the hits went for extra-bases, with Nevin picking up a double and triple along with three singles. The son of former first-overall pick and All-Star Phil Nevin, the younger Nevin was the 38th pick of the 2015 draft and shows plus raw power and some feel for the barrel. He's battled injuries and likely will have to play first, but there's certainly offensive upside in his bat. It's a long-term play, but he could be an everyday first baseman someday.

Rangers prospect Kyle Cody gave up one hit in seven shutout innings on Sunday for High-A Down East.

Cody also struck out eight while walking just two. Cody was too old/advanced for Low-A Hickory, but he's been even better since his promotion to Down East. He's struck out 25 in just under 19 innings, and he's posted a 2.41 ERA. Cody will likely start next year in Double-A, but there's a real chance he'll be a part of the Texas rotation by this point in 2018. He was a steal in the sixth-round last June.

Rockies prospect Ryan McMahon went 2-for-4 with a double on Sunday for Triple-A Albuquerque.

The double is the 39th of the year for McMahon, and 22nd in 61 games for the Isotopes. He certainly has power in his bat, but few prospects are doing a better job right now of putting the ball into the gaps. There's nowhere for him to play right now, but McMahon is ready to hit big-league pitching. He should be a key component on the bench when rosters expand.

Rays prospect Brendan McKay pitched three shutout innings on Sunday for short-season Hudson Valley.

He can pitch. He can hit. He can field. He can't run. McKay is the best two-way prospect we've seen in a long, long time; with apologies to Hunter Greene. You should still expect him to do one thing or another -- and right now the odds are he's gonna pitch -- but the fact that he's holding his own as both is pretty special.

Padres prospect Luis Urias homered on Sunday for Double-A El Paso.

That homer gives Urias three on the season. Power is not a big part of Urias's game, but it doesn't have to be for him to be fantasy relevant. He has one of the best projected hit tools in all of baseball. He's spending just as much time at second as he is at shortstop right now, and while he'd be more valuable on the third-base side of the bag, he's an everyday player either way.
Aug 21 - 1:43 PM

Twins prospect Stephen Gonsalves gave up six runs in just three innings of work on Sunday for Triple-A Rochester.

Gonsalves gave up eight hits, walked three, and struck out one. He also gave up three homers. It's a small sample size, but in his three starts since the promotion, he has given up 16 hits in 16 innings, and the ERA sits at 5.08. That's mostly due to this last outing, but it's still a bummer considering how good he was at Double-A Chattanooga. The upside is undeniable, but you probably won't see it in Minnesota until 2018.
Aug 21 - 1:40 PM

Phillies prospect J.P. Crawford picked up three hits on Sunday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

All three hits for singles. Crawford has been crushing the ball since July, so a three-hit game is no surprise. What was surprising was that for the first time in his career, he played third base. He's no longer a plus-plus defender at short, but he's still a competent defender at the premium position. What this (might) tell us is that the Phillies want to expand his flexibility. If Crawford wasn't hitting this well, that wouldn't happen. This is a good sign.
Aug 21 - 1:32 PM

Twins prospect Royce Lewis went 4-for-6 on Sunday for Low-A Cedar Rapids.

Since being promoted from the Gulf Coast League, Lewis has 14 hits in 35 at-bats; good for a .400 average, which is good. He's also stolen two bases. The only thing he hasn't shown yet is much patience -- zero walks -- or power with just one extra-base hits. That's nitpicking, though; Lewis has been outstanding since going first-overall in June's draft.
