Ryan Weathers, LHP, Padres. Weathers tossed six scoreless innings for low Class A Fort Wayne. The lefthander gave up just one hit and a walk while striking out six. The Padres’ No. 13 prospect has poise on the mound and works quickly, working with both a four-seam and two-seam fastball before mixing in his secondary offerings.

Jose Rojas, 3B, Angels. Rojas had a four-hit day for Triple-A Salt Lake, driving in six runs and scoring twice. He crushed a grand slam to right field in the seventh inning, and followed that up with a solo home run to right field in the ninth. The Angels’ No. 28 prospect doesn’t have a high ceiling but takes quality at-bats and can play multiple positions on the infield.

Anthony Kay, LHP, Mets. The Mets’ No. 5 prospect was dealing for Double-A Binghamton, racking up 10 strikeouts across six innings. The lefthander allowed just a hit and three walks before making his exit. While he will have to continue improving his command, Kay works with a solid three-pitch mix that includes a curveball which flashes plus and has good 12-to-6 movement.

Alec Bohm, 3B, Phillies. The Phillies’ top prospect had three hits including a go-ahead home run for low Class A Lakewood. His home run was an opposite field shot that came in the seventh inning. Bohm has six multi-hit games in his past 10 for low Class A Lakewood. The offensive-minded Bohm covers the strike zone well, with plus raw power and a feel to hit.

Yordan Alvarez, OF/DH, Astros. The cleanup hitter for Triple-A Round Rock had a three-hit day with three RBI. Alvarez capped off his night with a solo home run in the ninth inning to help seal the victory. While the Astros’ No. 3 prospect can play left field or first base, he doesn’t profile as either on defense. His bat is what will carry him, and could potentially help Houston this season.

Brendan McKay, LHP, Rays. The Rays’ No. 3 prospect threw five innings while allowing just one earned run for Double-A Montgomery. McKay didn’t walk a batter and struck out nine. He needed just 66 pitches, throwing 52 for strikes. McKay works with a four-pitch mix and has plus control, showing the ability to pinpoint his fastball glove side with frequency.

Wil Crowe, RHP, Nationals. Crowe threw seven scoreless innings for Double-A Harrisburg, striking out seven while navigating around seven hits. The Nationals’ No. 5 prospect is off to a hot start, giving up just three earned runs in total during his first four starts. The righthander doesn’t have a plus pitch but is an effective strike-thrower and isn’t afraid to pitch inside.

Tanner Houck, RHP, Red Sox. Houck tossed five scoreless innings in a rain-shortened game for Double-A Portland. The righthander allowed just one hit and tied a career-high nine strikeouts. Boston’s No. 7 prospect works from a low three-quarter arm slot, attacking hitters with a fastball-slider combo.

Dylan Carlson, OF, Cardinals. Carlson had a three-hit night, scored three times and collected three RBI for Double-A Springfield. The outfielder crushed a three-run home run in the first inning to right-center field. The Cardinals’ No. 10 prospect has good on-base skills and profiles as an above-average corner outfielder who flashes a plus arm. 

Jose Siri, OF, Reds. Siri had a double and a home run for Double-A Pensacola in the first game of a double header. His three-run home run was part of a four-RBI day for the Reds’ No. 9 prospect. Siri is an excellent defender but will have to manage the strike zone better if he wants to crack the big league roster in the near future.
