The Nationals are calling up right-hander Joe Ross to start Tuesday against the Mariners.

Ross was surprisingly optioned to Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month, but his stint in the minors didn't last long. While he posted a 5.50 ERA over three starts in Triple-A, he threw seven innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts and one walk in his most recent outing. The 22-year-old had a 7.47 ERA over three starts prior to his demotion, but he's capable of much better if he's right and is worth picking up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.

Dodgers prospect Willie Calhoun homered on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

After not homering in the first two weeks of the season, Calhoun now has nine. He's also done this while only striking out 17 times this season, which speaks to his power and his hand-eye coordination. There are serious defensive concerns here, but Calhoun can really hit, and the Dodgers would do well to find somewhere for him to play.

According to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register, Doug Fister's contract with the Angels includes an out-clause if he's not in the majors by June 21.

Fister signed a major league deal with the Angels last Thursday, but he'll spend some time in the minors to get tuned up to join the rotation. If all goes well, he should be ready around the middle of June. According to Chris Cotillo of SBNation.com, Fister will receive a pro-rated base salary of $1.75 million in the majors, with the chance for $1.2 million with incentives.

Rays prospect Willy Adames went 2-for-3 on Sunday for Triple-A Durham.

Adames also knocked in a run, and stole his third base of the season. The Rays top prospect still isn't performing up to his talent, but again, it's not unheard of for 21-year-olds to struggle in Triple-A. This is still a shortstop with an above-average hit tool, and guys who can hit for average at a premium position are very valuable. Don't give up on Adames.
May 22 - 1:30 PM

White Sox pitching prospect Reynaldo Lopez gave up just one run in his six innings of work on Sunday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Lopez gave up just three hits on the afternoon, and he struck out five hitters while walking just one. That start pushed his ERA down to 2.94, and he's striking out more than a hitter an inning in the International League. Long story short, he's probably ready to face big-league hitters for the surprising White Sox.
May 22 - 1:20 PM

Rays prospect Brent Honeywell gave up two earned runs in just over six innings of work for Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

Those two runs came on six hits, and he struck out six while walking no one. In his last three outings, Honeywell has struck out 23 hitters and he's walked just one. This is good. The stuff is among the best of any right-handed prospect in baseball, and the command isn't far behind. That's a fun combination.
May 22 - 1:11 PM

Mets prospect Amed Rosario picked up two hits on Sunday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

Both of the hits were doubles. He's now hitting .360 in the PCL, and he's slugging .537, so yes, those hits are coming with some authority. Who knows when the Mets will decide to bring Rosario up, but everything he's done this spring suggests he's ready to contribute.
May 22 - 1:07 PM

Dodgers prospect Alex Verdugo went 3-for-4 on Sunday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Verdugo also scored two runs, and drew a walk as well. With Cody Bellinger up and crushing big-league pitching, Verdugo is the Dodgers top offensive prospect in their system. The hit tool is plus, and while there isn't much power, he should hit enough doubles to compensate. At some point in 2017, you should see him get a chance to hit at the highest level.
