Monday's Stars

Tyler O'Neill, OF, Cardinals. O'Neill came to the Cardinals in the trade last year that sent LHP Marco Gonzalez to the Mariners. It was one of those trades that seemed puzzling all around. Gonzalez has struggled with the Mariners and O'Neill joined a team that already had an overabundance of upper-level outfielders. But it makes sense to snag talent when you can get it, and O'Neill has legit power. He's hitting .487, which is obviously unsustainable. After hitting two home runs on Monday, O'Neill is among the minors leaders with six, which is sustainable.

Keibert Ruiz, C, Dodgers. It's hard not love Ruiz as a prospect. He is 38th on Baseball America's current Top 100 and could easily rank significantly higher by the end of the season. He's a 19-year-old switch-hitting catcher who is already in Double-A, and unlike some notable switch-hitting catchers of this century (Carlos Santana and Victor Martinez) he has enough defensive skills to stay behind the plate for quite a while. Ruiz got off to a slow start for Tulsa, but he hit two home runs yesterday.

Sean Murphy, C, Athletics. Murphy is one of the best defensive catchers in the minors, with a railgun of an arm and solid receiving skills. But if he is going to hit like he's hit to start the year, he'll take a leap forward as a prospect. Murphy hit his third home run of the young season yesterday and his fifth double, raising his average to .343.

Jorge Alcala, RHP, Astros. Acala teamed up with Abdiel Saldina to hold Myrtle Beach to a one-hit shutout. Alcala pitched in four one-hit innings and struck out seven while walking no one

Kyle Wright, RHP, Braves. Wright lasted only one inning as he gave up four hits and two walks while allowing four runs in only one inning of work.
