Tigers OF prospect Steven Moya had another productive game Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Toledo, leading the Mud Hens with four hits including two homers.

It's our second Moya blurb in as many days, which should tell you he's pretty locked in right now. He plated five runs Tuesday while finishing a triple shy of the cycle. Moya has reached base eight times in his last nine plate appearances with five extra-base hits over that span. The hot streak has brought his average up to .313. Last year Moya hit just .243 in 540 minor league at-bats

Coco Crisp is out Wednesday afternoon against the Mariners because of a heel issue.

A's manager Bob Melvin also mentioned that Crisp saw a doctor Wednesday morning for a "non-baseball issue," so there might be something else going on here. The veteran center fielder is presumably day-to-day.

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Archie Bradley matched a career-high with 11 strikeouts Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Reno.

He scattered five hits, two runs and two walks over seven innings of work. The 2011 first-round pick has dominated in his five starts for Reno, compiling a 2.45 ERA with an 11.92 K/9 over 25 2/3 innings. Opponents have hit .209 against him during that stretch. Bradley made a spot start for Arizona earlier this year but it didn't go well (4 1/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER against San Francisco on April 18).

Justin Bour is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday after dislocating his pinkie Tuesday.

Derek Dietrich will start at first base and bat fifth against Diamondbacks right-hander Rubby De La Rosa. It's not clear how much time Bour might miss.

Red Sox 2B prospect Yoan Moncada belted his first career grand slam Tuesday in a win for High-A Salem.

He scored three times as Salem rolled to a 15-3 win over Carolina. Moncada went 1-for-3 with a walk in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. The 20-year-old continues to devour minor league pitching. He's hitting .329 this year with a .934 OPS. He leads the Carolina League in steals (18) and is second in walks with 19. Moncada is widely considered Boston's top prospect.

Dodgers RHP prospect Jose De Leon recorded nine strikeouts over five scoreless frames Tuesday in his season debut for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

De Leon missed the first month while recovering from a sprained ankle. He didn't miss a beat in his return, holding New Orleans to two hits and one walk. He got the hook from manager Bill Haselman after throwing 88 pitches. The Zephyrs took the lead against reliever Luis Avilan in the seventh, forcing De Leon to settle for a no-decision. The 23-year-old from Puerto Rico is considered the Dodgers' second-best prospect behind left-hander Julio Urias.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Joe Beimel is auditioning for interested teams this week.

Beimel is 39 years old and had some shoulder problems in 2015, but he should be able to find an opportunity somewhere. The free agent left-hander holds a 3.12 ERA, 1.278 WHIP, and 47/30 K/BB ratio over his last 92 1/3 major league innings dating back to the beginning of the 2014 season.

Rays RHP prospect Matt Andriese tallied a career-high 14 strikeouts over seven shutout frames Tuesday for Triple-A Durham.

Andriese went up against Pirates top prospect Jameson Taillon in an epic pitcher's duel. Neither starter allowed a run in their combined 14 innings of work. Andriese actually made 25 appearances for the Rays last season, so he isn't really a prospect anymore. The 26-year-old has done a fine job for Durham this year, earning a 3.41 ERA with an 11.54 K/9 over six starts. Andriese may make a few spot starts here and there, but he's going to have a tough time cracking Tampa Bay's loaded starting rotation.
