Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager launched his eighth homer for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

That gives him 13 blasts across two minor league levels this season. With Byron Buxton and Kris Bryant in the bigs, Seager might be the most intriguing prospect left in the minor leagues. He's hit just .265 since June 1 but is still batting .306 for the year with 44 RBI. Even when the hits aren't falling, the 21-year-old doesn't have to worry about making contact. He's struck out just 43 times in 307 at-bats this season (14 percent). At this point, it would be an upset if Seager doesn't make his Dodgers debut in 2015.

Lorenzo Cain is not in the Royals' lineup Monday.

Cain isn't quite 100 percent yet while battling a hamstring issue, so this is just a precautionary day of rest. Jarrod Dyson is handling center field.
Jul 6 - 4:19 PM

Blue Jays RHP prospect Sean Reid-Foley gave up two hits in five scoreless frames Sunday in his debut for High-A Dunedin.

The game was suspended in the 17th inning with Dunedin and Lakeland locked in 1-1 tie. Reid-Foley went 3-3 with a 3.48 ERA in 15 starts for Low-A Lansing before his promotion on July 2. The 19-year-old has punched out 81 hitters this year (12.29 K/9) but he's also allowed 40 walks. Reid-Foley was Toronto's second-round pick in 2014.

Starling Marte (oblique) is not in the Pirates' lineup Monday.

The Pirates are calling him day-to-day for now even though it's almost surely a strained oblique Marte is dealing with (the club has only said he has discomfort in his left side). It appears he'll avoid the disabled list for now, but fantasy owners would be wise not to count on him for a few days. Sean Rodriguez is in left field Monday.

Twins activated OF Shane Robinson from the 7-day family emergency list.

Robinson's daughter had to undergo an operation over the weekend. He should get some at-bats in center field for the Twins.
Jul 6 - 4:11 PM

Twins placed RHP Ryan Pressly on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 5, with a right lat strain.

Pressly underwent an MRI on Sunday that apparently confirmed the strained lat. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but it figures to be longer than a minimum DL stay.
Jul 6 - 4:10 PM

Dodgers 2B prospect Willie Calhoun drove in a career-high five runs Sunday in a win for Rookie-level Ogden.

Despite being listed at a Dustin Pedroia-like 5'9 and 177 pounds, Calhoun has already belted five home runs in 17 contests this season. It's been feast or famine for the 20-year-old. He has four multi-hit games in his last nine appearances but has somehow managed just a .256 average over that stretch. The Dodgers snagged Calhoun in the fourth round of this year's draft after he hit .432 in 63 games for Yavapai Junior College in Arizona.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

It's a simple day off. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate while Lucroy rests.
