Out Of The Park Baseball 22 is the world's best baseball strategy game. Do you have what it takes to put together a World Series-winning organization? Check it out today! Available on PC and Mac!

Shane Baz, Double-A Montgomery (Rays) — Baz's outstanding beginning to the season continued on Thursday night against Biloxi. The righthander, another piece of the Chris Archer trade, whiffed eight over five innings of three-hit shutout ball. With the outing, Baz now has 47 strikeouts in 27.2 innings.

Anthony Volpe, Low-A Tampa (Yankees) — Volpe continued the strong start to his season with a monster day. In Tampa's thrashing of Lakeland, the Yankees' 2019 first-round pick collected two home runs (including one with an exit velocity of 107.7 mph), a double and two stolen bases.

Matt Fraizer, High-A Greensboro (Pirates) — The Pirates' third-round pick from 2019 has very quietly put together an excellent beginning to the season. With a 3-for-4 night on Thursday, Fraizer brought his average up to an even .300, and his two home runs doubled his season total. Perhaps even more encouragingly, Fraizer has nearly as many walks (16) as strikeouts (19).

Dillon Dingler, High-A West Michigan (Tigers) — One of a collection of college players the Tigers selected in 2020, Dingler has started his pro career quite nicely. The former Ohio State backstop has put together a slash line of .302/.413/.628 over the first month. The latest addition was a 3-for-4 night on Thursday capped by a massive grand slam against Great Lakes.

Spencer Torkelson, High-A West Michigan (Tigers) — The No. 1 overall pick from the 2020 draft is heating up. After time off to recover from a bum hamstring, Torkelson has caught fire. He swatted his fourth homer of the season on Thursday night, and is 6-for-20 with three homers since returning to the lineup on May 29.

Bryce Elder, High-A Rome (Braves) — Atlanta's 2020 fifth-round pick shined in his latest start. The Texas alum whiffed 10 over six innings while allowing just one unearned run. He allowed five hits and walked nobody. For the season, Elder is up to 41 strikeouts in 31.2 innings.

Carson Ragsdale, Low-A San Jose (Giants) — Drafted by the Phillies then acquired by San Francisco in the Sam Coonrod trade, Ragsdale dominated in the Low-A West League on Thursday. The Georgia Tech product whiffed 10 hitters over five one-hit innings against Modesto. Ragsdale is now up to 45 strikeouts in 25.2 innings. He's now tied for the fourth-most strikeouts in the minors.

Mick Abel, Low-A Clearwater (Phillies)  — Philadelphia's first-rounder had one of his best starts of the year on Thursday night. The righthander established a career best with six strikeouts over 3.2 innings, which tied his longest outing of the season. It was just the second start in which he'd held the opponent scoreless.

Austin Martin, Double-A New Hampshire (Blue Jays) — After a rough start to his pro career, Martin is starting to get on track. He slammed his first professional homer on Thursday, albeit in a loss to Binghamton. He's recorded two hits in two of his last three games and has at least one hit in six of his last eight games.

Korry Howell, High-A Wisconsin (Brewers) — One of the season's quietest hot starts, Howell, whom the Brewers drafted in the 12th round in 2018, collected three more hits in his team's win over Peoria. The night included his seventh home run of the season (he entered the year with just two) and raised his average to .320.
