Reds 3B prospect Taylor Sparks clubbed four hits including his fifth home run of the year Sunday in a win for High-A Daytona.

Sparks is 7-for-9 with three homers and seven RBI over his last two games. His average has climbed from .183 to .212 during that stretch. Sparks hasn't had a good season for the Tortugas but maybe Sunday's outburst is a sign that better times are ahead. Five of his last seven hits have gone for extra bases. Sparks hit .247 with 13 blasts last season in his first year with Daytona.

Orioles RHP prospect Matthew Grimes spanned eight shutout innings Sunday in a win for High-A Frederick.

The eight-inning gem was the longest start of his career. Grimes hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts and now leads the Carolina League with seven wins this year. He also owns the league's second-lowest ERA (1.21) and fifth-lowest WHIP (1.06). The 24-year-old has allowed just one earned run during his four-game winning streak. Despite his success, Grimes has only struck out 37 hitters in 59 2/3 innings this year.

Dexter Fowler is out of the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday because of a sore right heel.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said it's a minor thing, so we'll label Fowler as day-to-day for now. Ben Zobrist is hitting leadoff and Jason Heyward is in center field on Monday against Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood.

Matt Duffy was pulled from Monday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left wrist.

Duffy stayed in to run initially following a meeting with the Giants' trainer, but Kelby Tomlinson took over at third base when the inning turned. There should be an update from the Giants after the game. Duffy finished 0-for-2 with the HBP on Monday in Atlanta.

Nationals RHP prospect Reynaldo Lopez set a career-high with 12 strikeouts Sunday in a no-decision for Double-A Harrisburg.

Lopez made the most of his five innings of work, allowing just five hits and one earned run. The 22-year-old didn't walk a batter for the first time all season. Though he's won just one game and his ERA is over four, Lopez has certainly piled on the strikeouts this year. He leads the Eastern League with 56 punch-outs in just 47 2/3 innings. Lopez hasn't put it all together yet but he definitely has the velocity and raw talent to make an impact at the next level.

Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) played catch on flat ground Monday without issue.

He's been playing catch now for a week since going through a shutdown period in mid-May. Alvarez is on his way back from major shoulder surgery and currently has no timetable for activation. He was looking pretty sharp in the minors before this latest setback.

Tommy Joseph is not in the Phillies' starting lineup Monday against the Nationals.

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said Sunday night that he was planning to get Joseph more playing time against right-handers at the expense of Ryan Howard, but it'll be Howard at first base (and batting cleanup) Monday versus Washington righty Tanner Roark. Joseph has an .861 OPS and three home runs in his first 11 major league games.

Reds 2B prospect Brandon Dixon drilled two homers Sunday in a win for Double-A Pensacola.

He drove in six of Pensacola's 12 runs with four coming on a first-inning grand slam. The six RBI set a new career-high. The 24-year-old has come alive this month, hitting .306 with five homers and 18 RBI after batting only .241 with no homers and seven RBI in April. The Reds acquired Dixon from the Dodgers this winter in a trade that sent Todd Frazier to the White Sox.
