Matt Manning, RHP, Tigers. The Tigers’ No. 2 prospect spun a gem for Double-A Erie. He didn’t allow a baserunner until a hit in the fifth. The righthander went seven scoreless while matching a career high 10 strikeouts.

Hans Crouse, RHP, Rangers. Crouse was dealing for Class-A Hickory, striking out nine batters across five innings. The Rangers’ top prospect closed out his start by recording 12 consecutive outs. While he still has many levels to climb, Crouse has the makings of becoming a front-line starter.

Brendan McKay, LHP, Rays. The lefthander tossed 4 1/3 innings for Double-A Montgomery, striking out a career high 11 batters. The Rays’ No. 3 prospect is also off to a solid start with the bat, hitting a .273/.385/.364 thus far.

Oscar Gonzalez, OF, Indians. The Indians’ No. 22 prospect had a four-hit day for high Class A Lynchburg. He had three base knocks including an RBI double and a walk. He is now batting .438/.438/.594.

Desmond Lindsay, OF, Mets. After a four hit day on Tuesday, Lindsay recorded four walks with a single and a run scored for high Class A St. Lucie on Wednesday. The Mets’ No. 11 prospect is now batting .286/.444/.333.

Michael Baumann, RHP, Orioles. The Orioles’ No. 21 prospect recorded 10 strikeouts over five scoreless innings for high Class A Frederick. Baumann had 5.73 strikeouts per nine innings for high Class A last season and didn’t record more than six strikeouts in any start for the club.

Yordan Alvarez, 1B/LF, Astros. Alvarez homered for the fifth time in six games for Triple-A Round Rock. He hit two doubles and drove in four runs as well. Although he may not have a positional fit in Houston at the moment, the offensive-minded Alvarez has a chance to mash his way to the big leagues sooner rather than later.

Spencer Howard, RHP, Phillies. Howard tossed six scoreless innings for high Class A Clearwater. The Phillies’ No. 7 prospect gave up three hits, one walk and collected five strikeouts. One of the best arms in Philadelphia’s system, Howard will have to continue to throw more strikes in order to have success against advanced hitters in the upper minors.

Shed Long, 2B, Mariners. Long had a four-hit day for Triple-A Tacoma, including a home run in the ninth inning. He collected three RBI, scored twice and walked once. The offensive-minded Long is now batting .407/.467/.556.
