Reds RHP prospect Hunter Greene gave up seven runs in 2/3 of an inning on Monday for Low-A Dayton.

Greene gave up four hits and walked three, and he struck out one. A clunker of an outing for the second pick of the 2017 MLB Draft, as the 18-year-old just didn't have his stuff or command. That's going to happen, because he's an 18-year-old pitcher. The future is very, very bright for Greene, but this is not a fast-track arm. We're looking at an ETA of 2020 at this point.

Twins SS prospect Nick Gordon went 4-for-7 on Monday for Double-A Chattanooga.

With the four hits, Gordon is now hitting .375 on the season, and .578 slugging percentage shows that the shortstop prospect isn't making soft contact, either. At this point, it's pretty clear that Gordon needs a better challenge, and he should be seeing a promotion to Triple-A at some point soon. The only way that doesn't happen is if the Twins just decide to promote him straight to the majors. Either way, he's the shortstop of the future.

Braves RHP prospect Mike Soroka fired seven scoreless innings on Monday for Triple-A Gwinnett.

Soroka scattered three hits, and while he did walk three, none of the self-inflicted damage came in to score. The 2015 first-round pick now has his ERA down to 1.99 on the season, and recent comments from Atlanta's brass suggest that he's "close" to being ready at the MLB level. He doesn't offer the huge upside of some of the other top hurlers, but his ability to miss bats and throw strikes with his entire arsenal make him an intriguing fantasy option if/when that takes place.

Yoan Moncada will bat sixth Tuesday against the Mariners.

Moncada was a single short of the cycle Monday while hitting leadoff, but he'll slide down in the order against left-hander Marco Gonzales. It's worth noting that he also batted sixth on Saturday against Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel before leaving with hamstring tightness, so this could be the way Rick Renteria plans on handling things moving forward. Tim Anderson will hit leadoff Tuesday.
Apr 24 - 1:29 PM

Dodgers OF prospect Alex Verdugo went 1-for-4 with a homer on Monday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Verdugo struggled to hit for power last year, but he already has four on his 2016 campaign in 16 games. Last year's lack of power had more to do with bad fly-ball luck than anything to do with Verdugo, although he reportedly has added some loft to his swing. He's ready to go, but it's going to take an injury or trade for him to come up to the highest level. If that happens, be ready to pounce on him.

Braves recalled LHP Max Fried from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Fried will give the Braves a fresh arm for their bullpen. The 24-year-old southpaw had a 1.72 ERA across his first three starts between Double- and Triple-A this season.
Apr 24 - 1:17 PM

Padres RHP prospect Michel Baez threw five no-hit innings on Monday for High-A Lake Elsinore.

Baez did allow two base runners via walk, and he struck out two. Signed for $3 million after defecting from Cuba, the 22-year-old right-hander has three pitches that can cause swings-and-misses, starting with a fastball that gets into the high 90s. His slider and change aren't plus-plus like the fastball, but they're above-average offerings that flash in the plus range. Baez should see time in Double-A this year, and if all goes well, he could pitch in the San Diego rotation in 2019.
Apr 24 - 1:15 PM

Braves designated RHP Miguel Socolovich for assignment.

The move comes one day after he threw 37 pitches while allowing three runs over one inning of work against the Reds. This marks the second time Socolovich has been designated for assignment in the span of a month. The Braves were able to get him through waivers the first time and he'll head back to Triple-A if it happens again.
