Notes on 15 prospects, including Royals righty Christian Binford and Mets second baseman Wilmer Flores.

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Christian Binford, RHP, Royals (Low-A Lexington): 6.0 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 12 K. Binford has an extremely tall frame, standing 6-foot-6, and he utilizes it to create good plane on his low-90s fastball. Earlier this season, Binford showed a curveball that flashed solid average and a changeup that was very inconsistent. He still had some mechanical issues that he needed to iron out, but the recent performance may suggest that Binford is ready to step onto the prospect radar; 45.0 IP, 37 H, 5 ER, 7 BB, 51 K in last seven starts.

Position Prospect of the Day: Wilmer Flores, 2B, Mets (Triple-A Las Vegas): 3-4, 2B, 2 HR, 3 R, 3 RBI. Flores continues to play second base in Triple-A, and it looks like the Mets are going to give him a shot to prove that he can handle it in The Show. Flores makes solid contact and has the potential to have a solid-average hit tool with plus power. After a rollercoaster prospect journey, Flores profiles as a solid-average regular going forward.
