Casey Mize, RHP, Tigers. The Tigers’ top prospect spun a gem on Wednesday, going seven scoreless innings for high Class A Lakeland. The righthander allowed one hit and a walk while collecting six strikeouts.

Ronny Mauricio, SS, Mets. Mauricio had another four-hit game for low Class A Columbia, which is his second in the past week. The shortstop had three singles and a triple to bounce back from his 0-for-9 skid from the previous two games. Maurico’s .346 average is fifth best in the South Atlantic League.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Jays. Guerrero Jr. just keeps punishing the baseball, smashing a home run that left the ball park for Triple-A Buffalo. He had two hits in four at-bats with an RBI and two runs scored on the night. The top prospect in the minors is now batting .344/.432/.594 with four extra-base hits in 32 at-bats.

Aristides Aquino, OF, Reds. The Reds’ No. 18 prospect had a double, home run and walked twice for Triple-A Louisville. Aquino will have to work on his strike zone management in order to have a chance at taking on an everyday role in the outfield for Cincinnati.

Blaine Knight, RHP, Orioles. Knight tossed five scoreless innings for low Class A Delmarva, working around just one hit and a walk. He struck out a career-high nine batters, making the most of his changeup during the outing. The Orioles’ No. 10 prospect has extended his scoreless streak to 11 and two thirds innings.

Bryan Reynolds, OF, Pirates. Reynolds hit a go-ahead grand slam as part of a five RBI night for Triple-A Indianapolis. He also singled and walked as well. The Pirates’ No. 9 prospect has a compact swing and isn’t known for his power, but could still profile as a fourth outfielder.

Livan Soto, SS, Angels. Soto had a four-hit game, all singles, for high Class A Burlington. While the Angels’ No. 25 prospect will face a test in his first taste of full-season ball, Soto is a quality defender and has good bat-to-ball skills.

Joel Booker, OF, White Sox. Booker had three hits including a three-run home run for Double-A Birmingham. Chicago’s No. 27 prospect has begun to tap into more power after an overhaul of his swing during the offseason of 2017.

Tyler Ivey, RHP, Astros. Ivey was dealing in relief for Double-A Corpus Christi, allowing just two hits in five scoreless innings. The righthander registered eight strike outs, punching out the side in the sixth inning. The Astros’ No. 27 prospect is a breaking ball pitcher, looking to dominate hitters with a plus curve and slider that flashes above-average.

Gavin Lux, SS, Dodgers. Lux hit a home run and a double from the leadoff spot for Double-A Tulsa. The Dodgers’ No. 3 prospect is now batting .400/.449/.733 with seven extra-base hits in 45 at-bats.

Nicky Lopez, SS, Royals. Lopez was a home run shy of the cycle for Triple-A Omaha. It was the third straight three-hit game for Lopez, who now has a seven game hitting streak after starting out the season hitless in 14 at-bats.

Oscar Mercado, OF, Indians. Mercado had three hits and walked once for Triple-A Columbus. The Indians’ No. 16 prospect was able to use his plus speed on the base paths, stealing four bases and scoring twice.
