- Chris Owings wend 3-for-5 on Monday as the Diamondbacks shortstop prospect extended his hitting streak to 22-games, notes Jake Seiner of MiLB.com. Owings is now hitting .348/.365/.465 on the season, but his 49/6 K/BB ratio is still a major concern.
- Evan Gattis might have filled the need for him on the Braves roster, but Joey Terdoslavich has showed that he's ready to hit in the majors, and added to that case with his 10th home run of the season.
- Billy Hamilton isn't getting the attention he got last year when he set the minor league record for stolen bases in a season, but in case you forgot, he's still really fast, as evidenced by his 14.3 second inside-the-park-homerun, writes Ashley Marshall of MiLB.com.
- Mike Olt put together a much-needed three-hit night on Monday, as the Rangers prospect upped his batting average to .169 since joining the Round Rock Express.
- Archie Bradley battled control issues last season, and those issues reared their ugly head again on Monday. The Diamondbacks pitching prospect was still effective allowing just two runs over six innings to earn his fifth win despite walking five batters in the outing.
- Taijuan Walker took another hard luck loss to drop to 3-6 on the season despite his 2.67 ERA. Last night's outing saw the Mariners right-hander allow two runs over five innings, and while he's pitched well, he has yet to dominate the way many expected.
- The typical all-or-nothing production from White Sox outfielder Trayce Thompson wasn't evident on Monday, but he was productive anyway, reaching base four times without striking out. Thompson is hitting just .242 on the season, but his patient approach, which helps lead to those strike outs, has also allowed him to draw 36 walks on the season and post a .371 on-base percentage this year.
- Alen Hanson hit his second home run of the season, but was upstaged fellow Pirates prospect Gregory Polanco, who collected three hits, including a pair of doubles.
- Mets lefty Noah Syndergaard struck out five batters in as many innings, but took a loss despite allowing just two runs in the outing. Syndergaard has pitched well this season, but dropped to 2-3 despite a 2.81 ERA.
- Shawn Morimando threw seven shutout innings on Monday, making it three-straight scoreless outings for the Indians left-hander.
- In his first outing in full-season ball, Reds 2012 first round draft pick Nick Travieso allowed four runs in as many innings while striking out three.
- Dillon Maples turned in the best start of his young season, throwing five scoreless innings and striking out seven. The Cubs prospect lowered his ERA to 7.06 on the year after struggling in his transition to full-season ball.
