Monday's Stars

Deivi Garcia, RHP, Yankees. Garcia celebrated his promotion to the Florida State League by throwing seven perfect innings, striking out 12. The game was scheduled to go seven innings, so Minor League Baseball's extra-inning rules applied in the eighth inning, which leads to all kinds of questions about whether a perfect game can continue if there is a runner standing on second base.

Royce Lewis, SS, Twins. Lewis won the battle of No. 1's, as the first pick in the 2017 draft homered off of 2018 No. 1 pick Casey Mize. Lewis wasn't done there as he went 4-for-6 with two home runs. Lewis is hitting .318/.380/.489 with 12 home runs this season, living up to every expectation for a No. 1 pick.

Ford Proctor, SS, Rays. The Rays' third-round pick out of Rice has had an unspectacular pro debut, but he did have a spectacular Monday. Proctor went 3-for-4 with a pair of triples and a home run to raise his slugging percentage by 64 points.

Ibandel Isabel, DH, Reds. Isabel's prodigious power was apparent again on Monday. He doubled and hit his 25th home run of the season. Isabel leads the Florida State League in home runs by five over anyone else in the league.

Kyle Tucker, OF, Astros. Tucker was sent down from Houston after just 16 games with the Astros. He's responded by hitting .318/.375/.455 in his first five games with Triple-A Fresno since his demotion. Tucker went 2-for-5 with his 15th home run and 16th steal for the Grizzlies.

Will Benson, OF, Indians. Benson had drawn plenty of walks and hit his 17th home run yesterday, pulling himself into second in the Midwest League in home runs. The bad news for Benson and the Indians is that he's also hitting .162.

Jon Duplantier, RHP, Diamomdbacks. Duplantier returned to the Southern League after missing two months with bicep tendinitis. He made the most of his return by throwing five perfect innings. He struck out three.

Jesus Luzardo, LHP, Athletics. Luzardo made an impressive Triple-A debut. He allowed eight hits over five scoreless innings. He walked no one and struck out six.

Kyle Muller, LHP, Braves. The Braves promoted Muller for the second time this year, as he pitched for Double-A Mississippi last night. He allowed two runs on three hits (with one walk and four strikeouts) in 5.1 innings. Muller's velocity is back to the mid-90s that he showed in high school, a far cry from the 88-91 mph range he sat at last year.
