Prospect Of The Day
Durham shortstop Reid Brignac’s (Rays) earned his place on this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet with his 3-for-5 showing last night, during which he doubled twice. He’s collected an extra-base hit in five consecutive games, and he’s batting .362/.352/.638 in 69 May at-bats, with three homers, 10 doubles . . . but also zero walks.
After recovering from an appendectomy, Pawtucket 1B Brandon Moss (Red Sox) played in his first game since May 2. The results weren’t pretty (0-for-5, three strikeouts), but at least he’s back on the field . . . Durham RHP Mitch Talbot (Rays) continued his hot pitching, as he went eight shutout innings against Richmond, striking out seven, walking none and allowing just five hits. He also kept the ball on the ground, collecting 12 groundouts and five fly outs.

Prospect Of The Day
Righthander Eric Hurley (Ranger) improved to 2-3 with seven shutout innings yesterday against New Orleans. He allowed six hits while striking five and walking three. He attributed much of the success to improved mechanics, telling The Oklahoman:
"We’re trying to get my body in a little better position so I can hold my form all the way down the hill. It’s something I wanted to do. Everybody liked it today, so I’m going to keep working on it.”
Tacoma C Jeff Clement (Mariners) homered for the third straight game, as part of his 2-for-5 night . . . Memphis CF Colby Rasmus (Cardinals) collected a couple hits in four at-bats.
