Yordan Alvarez, LF, Astros. As usual, Alvarez absolutely went off for Triple-A Round Rock. He had three hits and drove in a career-high six RBI. He hit a double and blasted two home runs, one in the first inning and one in the fifth inning. The Astros’ No. 3 prospect had an excellent month of April and is showing no signs of slowing down in May, collecting his second three-hit performance in a row.

Keibert Ruiz, C, Dodgers. Ruiz had a four-for-four night with Double-A Tulsa, driving in two runs and coming around to score three times. He had three base hits and also hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. It was Ruiz’s second multi-performance in his last three games.

Brendan McKay, LHP, Rays. McKay threw six scoreless innings for Double-A Montgomery, allowing just six hits without allowing a walk. The Rays’ No. 3 prospect struck out six batters, throwing 49 of 68 pitches for strikes. McKay has been really consistent lately, logging at least five innings in each of his last five starts with no fewer than six strikeouts per start. As he continues to pitch well, McKay is well within reach of fulfilling a mid-rotation starter ceiling for Tampa.

Alex Jackson, C, Braves. Jackson had three hits in five at-bats for Triple-A Gwinnett, driving in two runs and scoring twice. He had two singles and hit a home run to right center field in the third inning. Jackson had a bit of a lull at the plate, collecting just one hit in his previous three games. Atlanta’s No. 23 prospect is still developing as a catcher, but a plus arm and decent offensive performance can help him receive consideration to be a backup at the big league level.

Jorge Guzman, RHP, Marlins. Guzman tossed six scoreless frames for Double-A Jacksonville. The righthander navigated around two hits and two walks while striking out a season-high 10 batters. He was in a groove early on, not even allowing a hit until two outs in the fourth inning. The Marlins’ No. 7 prospect is adjusting nicely to the upper minors, although he needs to work on his control as he has allowed 22 walks in 44 innings to this point.

Brady Singer, RHP, Royals. Singer went six scoreless innings for high Class A Wilmington, navigating around six hits and a hit batter. The righthander collected a career-high 10 strikeouts, fanning at least two hitters in four of his last five innings on the mound. While the Royals’ top prospect has had to work around traffic on the bases during most of his starts, Singer’s advanced control and pitchability help him to be successful regardless.

Jeremy Pena, SS, Astros. Pena had three hits in five at-bats with three RBIs and four runs scored for low Class A Quad Cities. He had a robust stat line, and ironically fell a single short of the cycle, which is usually the easiest part to get. It was his third multi-hit game in a row, with six extra-base hits in that span. Houston’s No. 26 prospect is a plus defender and is starting to show more impact with the bat which is a welcomed sign, even if he does ultimately profile as a bottom-of-the-order type of bat.
