  • Manny Banuelos, LHP, Yankees (Triple-A Scranton/WB): 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K. Best start of the year could be one of his last unless we see a September debut to give others some rest.
  • Dellin Betances, RHP, Yankees (Triple-A Scranton/WB): 7 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 4 BB, 8 K. Nice double-header for the Triple-A Yankees, huh?
  • Gary Brown, OF, Giants (High-A San Jose): 4-for-5, 2 2B, 3B, 2 R, K. Hard to imagine a better five-game streak than 17-for-26 with 29 total bases; .338/.407/.518 on the season.
  • Travis D'Arnaud, C, Blue Jays (Double-A New Hampshire): 3-for-6, HR (20), R, 5 RBI, K. Recently announced Eastern League MVP is putting a bow on incredible season; .315/.376/.545 in 110 games.
  • Kyle Drabek, RHP, Blue Jays (Triple-A Las Vegas): 3 IP, 8 H, 9 R, 4 BB, 4 K. Has allowed five or more runs in nine of 14 starts at Triple-A; 7.41 ERA as the wheels seem to have completely come off.
  • Corey Dickerson, OF, Rockies (Low-A Asheville): 1-for-1, HR (31), R, 2 RBI. Now 25 of his 31 home runs have come at home, as the difference in OPS between his home and road numbers now stands at 573 points.
  • Robbie Grossman, OF, Pirates (High-A Bradenton): 3-for-5, 2 2B, 2 R, RBI, 2 K. .410 on-base percentage actually qualifies as a bit of a slump during .300/.425/.462 season that has generated some of the most widely varying scouting reports I've seen.
  • Jake Marisnick, OF, Blue Jays (Low-A Lansing): 2-for-5, HR (14), R, RBI, K. Fourth straight multi-hit game and up to .324/.396/.506 overall; I loved him in yesterday's Ten Pack, so no need to gush.
  • Starling Marte, OF, Pirates (Double-A Altoona): 3-for-5, 2B, 3B, R. 19-for-45 (.422) during 11-game hitting streak and .335/.373/.510 overall in 122 games; all sorts of tools all over the place.
  • Jose Martinez, OF, White Sox (Double-A Birmingham): Hitting .404 in 25 August games and .313/.359/.412 since promotion to Double-A, but power remains lost.
  • Anthony Meo, RHP, Diamondbacks (Rookie-level AZL): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. Pro debut for second-round pick.
  • Tom Milone, LHP, Nationals (Triple-A Syracuse): 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K. 1.72 ERA in five August starts with 35 strikeouts in 31.1 innings; some scouts think he just might be good enough at what he does to survive in the big leagues with well below-average velocity.
  • Brad Peacock, RHP, Nationals (Triple-A Syracuse): 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K. Ok, nice double-dip for the Nationals' Triple-A squad, as well.
  • Francisco Peguero, OF, Giants (Double-A Richmond): 3-for-5, HR (5), R, 3 RBI. Hitting .381 in 27 August games and .323/.332/.470 overall; just looking at the first two of three numbers there and you see the issue.
  • Jacob Realmuto, C, Marlins (Low-A Greensboro): 3-for-4, HR (11), R, 2 RBI. Athletic catcher is hitting .311/.357/.534 since All-Star break; going from sleeper to very real prospect.
  • Enny Romero, LHP, Rays (Low-A Bowling Green): 6.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K. Has gone five or more scoreless in three of last four starts; 135 strikeouts in 109 innings on the season.
  • Eddie Rosario, OF, Twins (Rookie-level Elizabethton): 2-for-4, HR (21), 2 R, 2 RBI, K. Five home runs in last six games and .332/.394/.672 overall.
  • Wilin Rosario, C, Rockies (Double-A Tulsa): 3-for-5, 2B, 2 HR (21), 3 R, 3 RBI, K. Season line of .254/.285/.468 has to be a disappointment, but he's still extremely rare as a catcher with plus power, arm strength and receiving skills.
  • Miguel Sano, 3B/SS, Twins (Rookie-level Elizabethton): 2-for-4, 2 HR (20), 2 R, 3 RBI, 2 K. 43 of his 76 hits have gone for extra bases as part of .290/.351/.634 line.
  • Neftali Soto, 1B, Reds (Double-A Carolina): 3-for-5, HR (30), 3 R, 2 RBI. Insane second half gets that much crazier; 25 home runs in 243 at-bats and a .650 slugging since the All-Star break.
  • Corey Spangenberg, 2B, Padres (Low-A Fort Wayne): 2-for-4, 2B, RBI, 2 K, 2 SB. After miserable start to Midwest League experience, he's batting .347/.398/.484 in 23 August games.
  • George Springer, OF, Astros (Short-season Tri-City): 2-for-4, 2B, HR (1), 3 R, RBI, BB; 1-for-3, R, 3 SB. Power hitter one game and speedster the next; he has those kind of tools.
  • Oscar Taveras, OF, Cardinals (Low-A Quad Cities): 4-for-6, 2B, R. I'm glad the season is almost over, as I'm running out of ways to say this guy can just flat out hit; .387/.444/.589 in 74 games.
  • Charlie Tilson, OF, Cardinals (Short-season Johnson City): 3-for-4, 2B, RBI. Second-round pick is 7-for-15 in four Appy League games.
  • D'Andre Toney, OF, Royals (Rookie-level AZL): 3-for-4, 3B, HR (5), 3 R, 3 RBI. 14Th-round pick is high-end athlete; .340/.432/.587 in 43 games.
  • Josh Vitters, 3B, Cubs (Double-A Tennessee): 2-for-4, HR (13), 2 R, 2 RBI, K. Does he have enough of these games? Taking away reputation and expectations, does a 22-year-old at Double-A with a .283/.323/.442 line excite you?
  • Tim Wheeler, OF, Rockies (Double-A Tulsa): 2-for-5, HR (33), 2 R, RBI, BB, K, SB. Going on another run; four home runs in last six games and up to .282/.370/.551 overall.
  • Kolten Wong, 2B, Cardinals (Low-A Quad Cities): 2-for-5, 2B, R, RBI, BB. Hitting .415 in last 12 games and .328/.390/.497 in his pro debut that has done nothing but increase his stock in every way as even defense has been better than advertised.
