Nate Pearson, RHP, Blue Jays. Pearson made his Double-A debut with New Hampshire tossing five scoreless innings. The righthander allowed two hits and collected eight strikeouts before making his exit. Toronto’s No. 6 prospect can reach triple digits with his fastball and has the ceiling of a mid-rotation arm if he can handle the innings workload.

Calvin Mitchell, OF, Pirates. Mitchell had a four-hit game for high Class A Bradenton with two RBI. The outfielder fell a homer short of the cycle, collecting two singles, a double and a triple. The Pirates’ No. 8 prospect is an offensive-minded outfielder with a plus hit tool but fringy arm that will likely limit him to left field.

Jeisson Rosario, OF, Padres. Rosario busted out of a slump with a four-hit day for high Class A Lake Elsinore. He had a career-night, collecting three doubles and hitting an inside-the-park home run. The Padres’ No. 22 prospect is a plus defender in center field with good bat-to-ball skills who slaps hits to the opposite field.

Luis Oviedo, RHP, Indians. Oviedo tossed six scoreless innings for low Class A Lake County. The righthander gave up four hits and a walk while collecting nine strikeouts along the way. The Indians’ No. 8 prospect works with a four-pitch mix which includes a mid-90s fastball that has sinking action and a changeup which he shows advanced feel for.

Trevor Larnach, OF, Twins. Larnach had three hits including two homers for high Class A Fort Myers. The outfielder belted a solo home run in the first inning and a three-run shot in the seventh inning. The Twins’ No. 5 prospect is a tick below-average defensively in right field, but has shown a feel to hit and has strong plate discipline skills with developing power. He is now batting .286/.333/.420 with 12 extra-base hits in 119 at-bats.

Bobby Bradley, 1B, Indians. Bradley collected four hits for Triple-A Columbus with three RBI and two runs scored. The lefty slugger doubled and had a home run in the fourth inning as well as the eighth inning. The Indians' No. 7 prospect is known for his excellent raw power and is seeing that translate on the field. While he does have some swing and miss to his game, Bradley should soon get some at-bats in the big leagues.

Luis Patiño, RHP, Padres. Patiño tossed the best game of his season to date, throwing six innings of one-run ball for high Class A Lake Elsinore. He needed to work around just two hits and one walk to get through six innings, helped out by seven strikeouts along the way. The Padres’ No. 7 prospect is athletic and has an explosive fastball that can touch 98 mph, but needs to work on his feel for secondary pitches before competing in the upper minors.
