- Tony Cingrani continues to miss bats now that he's back in Triple-A, but the Reds lefthander has struggled with his control, as displayed in his latest outing in which he struck out nine in five innings, but also walked five.
- Wil Myers has been red-hot this week, and he made his strongest case for a call-up on Tuesday when he hit a pair of home runs. I've been advocating that the Rays should call Myers up for almost a week now, and even that was probably a few weeks too late.
- Astros right-hander Jarred Cosart earned his fifth win of the season despite walking seven batters in the outing. Control has never been a strength for Cosart, but this was the first start of the season in which it was this bad. Still, his issues throwing strikes are one of the reasons the Astros haven't called him up to the majors yet and why some still see him as a bullpen arm.
- Perhaps just in time to take Jesus Montero's spot in the majors, Mariners catching prospect Mike Zunino is heating up again, hitting his 9th home run of the season on Tuesday.
- Zach Lee was strong again, as the Dodgers prospect threw six shutout innings and struck out seven to outpitch Diamondbacks prospect Andrew Chafin, who allowed one run in six innings of his own but got stuck with the loss. Chafin, who is often overlooked within the pitching-rich Diamondbacks farm system, has been the victim of poor run support this season, dropping to 1-4 in five starts since a promotion to Double-A, despite an ERA of 3.00.
- Taylor Lindsey is giving the Angels something to talk about in their barren system, as the second base prospect hit his seventh home run of the season on Tuesday as part of a 3-for-4 day.
- Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez hit his 9th home run of the season, but he was outdone by Cubs shortstop prospect Javier Baez, whose 7th homer of the year helped lead his team to victory.
- John Lamb was strong on Tuesday, as the Royals prospect tossed seven shutout innings, but that didn't keep Indians outfield prospect Tyler Naquin from collecting his pair of hits on the day.
- Angel Villalona continued his long-road back to professional baseball by hitting a pair of home runs, giving the Giants slugger 11 on the season.
- Bubba Starling hit his fifth home run of the season, but it was the first since his return from LASIK eye surgery.
- Jonathan Singleton homered in his first game back from his 50-game suspension for smoking weed, playing against inferior competition as he works his way back up the Astros organizational ladder. Cubs first base prospect Dan Vogelbach homered in the shortened game as well, his seventh of the year.
- And Byron Buxton is awesome.
