Luis Urias, 2B, Padres. While not known as a power hitter, Urias blasted the first three-home run game of his career and of Triple-A El Paso’s franchise history. The Padres’ No. 3 prospect drove in six runs and walked twice. Urias is a plus hitter who can play an above-average defensive second base for the Padres.

Aramis Ademan, SS, Cubs. Ademan had two hits in four at-bats for high Class A Myrtle Beach. The middle infielder smacked a two-run double in the first inning and a three-run home run in the sixth inning. The extra-base power is a welcomed sight for Ademan who has a smooth swing but not a lot of pop in the bat. The Cubs’ No. 10 prospect is now batting .286/.435/.510 with with five extra-base hits in 49 at-bats.

William Contreras, C, Braves. Contreras had a perfect day at the plate, reaching base in all five plate appearances for high Class A Florida. The Braves’ No. 9 prospect had four hits including two doubles and also walked once. Contreras is now batting .333/.400./.457 with with eight extra-base hits in 81 at-bats.

Brendan McKay, LHP, Rays. The lefthander threw five scoreless innings for Double-A Montgomery, allowing just three hits and one walk.The Rays’ No. 3 prospect collected six strikeouts in the game, which is his lowest tally of the season so far. McKay has mid-rotation upside featuring plus control and the aptitude to manipulate his four-pitch mix.

Brendan Rodgers, SS, Rockies. One day after homering in both games of a double header, Rodgers had a four-RBI day for Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday. Rodgers had a two-run single to center in the third inning, followed by a two-run double to right-center field in the fifth inning. The Rockies’ top prospect is an offensive force who can move around on the infield in order to enhance his value.

Parker Dunshee, RHP, Athletics. Oakland’s No. 14 prospect spun a gem for Double-A Midland, tossing eight shutout innings with eight strikeouts. The righthander has a four pitch mix which features a fastball that plays well up in the zone and can be used as a cutter in on lefthanded hitters, Dunshee hasn’t given up more than three earned runs in his first five starts this season.

Ian Anderson, RHP, Braves. The Braves’ No 2 prospect was shoving on Sunday, tossing six scoreless innings with eight strikeouts for Double-A Mississippi. The righthander allowed just two singles and two walks while collecting at least one strikeout in each inning.
