Rangers third-base prospect Joey Gallo showed off his power with three homers to earn the top spot in today's update.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Edwin Escobar, LHP, Giants (High-A San Jose): 6.0 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K. Escobar is a lefty who relies on his FB/CH combination. The curveball is developing, but Escobar will depend on the changeup as his primary secondary offering; 55.2 IP, 51 H, 20 ER, 14 BB, 73 K in 12 outings this season.

Javier Baez's four-homer night stole the show, but plenty of prospects enjoyed their Monday.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Lucas Sims, LHP, Braves (Low-A Rome): 6.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K. Well, well well, another Braves pitcher with a major-league future. The Braves started the season by using Sims in relief to keep his innings down, but since being placed back in a starting role, Sims has flourished. Sims has everything you would want in a young pitcher: a plus fastball, a potential plus curveball, and a developing changeup that has a solid-average. 19.1 IP, 16 H, 6 ER, 5 BB, 26 K in his last four starts

Byron Buxton is shredding Low-A pitching, and he picked up a pair of triples in a five-hit showing on Wednesday night.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Drake Britton, LHP, Red Sox (Double-A Portland): 8.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K; easy plus fastball; developing slider; average changeup; potential back-end starter or late-inning reliever.

Orioles outfielder Henry Urrutia needs to improve his secondary skills for his promising hit tool to make an impact in the majors.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Eddie Butler, RHP, Rockies (High-A Modesto): 6.0 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. Jason Cole has a lot of good to say about Butler. Check out his notes here.

Royals lefty John Lamb is slowly regaining his pre-injury stuff, but his stamina seemingly still has a long way to go.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: John Lamb, LHP, Royals (High-A Wilmington): 5.0 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. I was at the start tonight and it was filled with great excitement followed by a bit of a letdown. In the first three innings, Lamb’s fastball worked at 89-91 (T92); he showed plus command, spotting it wherever he wanted to; the curveball was 70-73 with tight spin and downward action; his changeup came in at 72-75 with good life and is a potential plus pitch. In the fourth and fifth inning, Lamb’s fastball worked 81-86; he was unable to command the curveball; the changeup was still quality at 70-74. The fact that Lamb showed he still has the ability to touch the higher velocities is promising, but now he will need to show his arm can sustain these velocities throughout an entire start.

Reds righty Robert Stephenson kept carving up Low-A hitters with Walt Jocketty in attendance last night.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Robert Stephenson, RHP, Reds (Low-A Dayton): 6.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 9 K; elite fastball; plus curveball; developing changeup that has a solid-average ceiling; athletic frame; carving up Low-A competition; frontline starter potential; 59.2 IP, 49 H, 22 ER, 16 BB, 77 K in 11 starts.

After a poor 2012 campaign, Red Sox righty Anthony Ranaudo has surged back onto prospect radars with an excellent first 10 starts.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Anthony Ranaudo, RHP, Red Sox (Double-A Portland): 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K; plus fastball with good life; curveball with easy plus potential; potential solid-average changeup. Ranaudo struggled mightily in 2012, but has come in and just flat-out shoved in 2013. I recently spoke with a scout who assumed Ranaudo will pitch in the Futures Game this year; 54.2 IP, 31 H, 9 ER, 15 BB, 58 K in 10 starts.

Wil Myers' two-homer showing on Tuesday is the latest reminder that his call to the big leagues isn't far off.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Drew Granier, RHP, Athletics (High-A Stockton): 6.2 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 12 K; four-pitch mix (fastball/slider/curveball/changeup); slider has solid-average potential; every other pitch is fringy; will have to prove himself going forward; works very hard, in a good way, on the mound.
