  • Domonic Brown, OF, Phillies (Triple-A Lehigh Valley): 3-for-5, R. Playing well at the right time and up to .276/.325/.420, but the Phillies aren't buyers anymore.

  • Nick Maronde, LHP, Angels (High-A Inland Empire): 7 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 10 K. Full-season debut has been injury-plagued, but he's still showing plus velo and a good slider.
  • Francisco Martinez, 3B, Mariners (Double-A Jackson): 3-for-5, HR (2), 2 R, 2 RBI. First game for Jackson in almost six weeks (hamstring), but still a disappointing .261/.335/.354 on the season.

  • Matt Szczur, OF, Cubs (High-A Daytona): 3-for-4, 2 R, 2 RBI. Very streaky hitter on another run; hard to get that excited about a 23-year-old in High-A hitting .281/.380/.397.
  • Michael Taylor, OF, Athletics (Triple-A Sacramento): 3-for-6, HR (9), R, 2 RBI, K. Another hot streak with a 12-game hitting streak and home runs in three of his last four games; .316/.420/.490 overall.
  • Tyrone Taylor, OF, Brewers (Rookie-level Helena): 3-for-4, 2 2B, R, BB. Second-round pick has huge tools and is hitting much more than expected; 14-for-30 since move to Pioneer League.
