Jose Barrero, SS, Triple-A Louisville (Reds)—In his first game back with the Bats after being demoted to Triple-A, Barrero collected two hits in four at-bats and drove in one. The 23-year-old shortstop, who collected two hits in 12 at-bats with the big league club, is having an outstanding season in the upper minors. Barrero is hitting .305/.379/.531 with 17 homers and 63 RBIs while playing outstanding defense at short.

Hunter Greene, RHP, Triple-A Louisville (Reds)—Greene picked up his 10th win of the season against Nashville, striking out six and walking three over five innings of two-run (one earned) ball while allowing four hits. The hard-throwing 22-year-old righthander is 10-6, 2.93 with 133 strikeouts and 37 walks in 98.1 innings.

Robert Hassell, OF, High-A Fort Wayne (Padres)—The 2020 No. 8 overall pick checked off his first multi-homer game with a three-homer day in just his third game since earning a promotion to High-A. The 20-year-old outfielder hit a solo shot and two two-run blasts to help Fort Wayne defeat Great Lakes in extra innings. Hassell is hitting .321/.411/.497 with 10 homers, 70 RBIs and 31 stolen bases in his first pro season.

Ryne Nelson, RHP, Double-A Amarillo (Diamondbacks)—Nelson turned in another impressive performance in a loss to San Antonio, pitching six innings for the seventh time this season. The 23-year-old righthander struck out four and walked one while allowing two runs on three hits. Nelson, a 2019 second-rounder from Oregon, made 43 of his 48 appearances out of the bullpen in college, but he's excelled in a starting role in his first year of full-season ball. He is 6-4, 3.14 with 139 strikeouts and 38 walks in 97.1 innings between High-A and Double-A.

Brayan Rocchio, SS, Double-A Akron (Indians)—Rocchio collected three hits, including a double, scored once and drove in one in a win over Altoona. The 20-year-old shortstop has impressed since earning a promotion to Double-A on July 30, with a .278/.352/.504 slash line, five homers and 20 RBIs in 115 at-bats.

Junior Santos, RHP, Low-A St. Lucie (Mets)—Santos turned in one of his better starts of the season to earn the win against Jupiter, striking out three and walking one over five innings of one-run ball. The 20-year-old righthander has had difficulty repeating his delivery, and in turn has struggled to throw strikes consistently. He has 36 walks in 83 innings this year, adding to concern that he might be best suited for a high-leverage relief role.

Spencer Torkelson, 3B, Triple-A Toledo (Tigers)—The Tigers No. 1 prospect crushed two home runs, a two-run shot followed by a solo shot, in the first game of a doubleheader against the Storm Chasers. The 2020 first overall pick has struggled since earning a promotion to Triple-A on Aug. 16, with a .190/.290/.466 slash line and four homers in 58 at-bats.
