Taylor Trammell, OF, Triple-A Tacoma (Mariners) – After being sent down by the Mariners last week, Trammell is doing everything he can to earn a promotion back to the majors. Trammell went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run and five RBIs to lead Triple-A Tacoma to a 7-3 win over Salt Lake on Monday. In five games since he was sent down, Trammell is 14-for-22 with four home runs and 14 RBIs.

Joey Bart, C, Triple-A Sacramento (Giants) – Bart continues to rake at Triple-A Sacramento. He went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs scored in the River Cats’ 7-6 loss to Oklahoma City and is now batting .382/.432/.735 on the young season. While there is no rush to bring him up with Buster Posey crushing the ball in his return to Giants after opting out of the 2020 season, Bart is doing his best to be ready whenever he’s needed.

Seth Beer, 1B, Triple-A Reno (D-backs) – Speaking of positioning themselves for a callup, Beer is making a strong case that he deserves a shot in Arizona. The 24-year-old first baseman went 2-for-4 with double and a run scored in Triple-A Reno’s 8-2 loss to Las Vegas and is now batting .326 with six doubles, three home runs and a .999 OPS in his first 11 games. Pavin Smith has started the last four games at first base for the D-backs with Christian Walker on the injured list, but Beer is waiting in the wings.

Yohel Pozo, C, Triple-A Round Rock (Rangers) – Pozo has been around for a while after signing with the Rangers back in 2013, but he’s still only 24. The Venezuelan backstop went 2 for 3 with a double, a home run and a pair of RBIs in the second game of Round Rock’s doubleheader sweep over Sugar Land. He has had at least one hit and one run in five of the six games he has played this season.
