Cardinals OF Dylan Carlson, Double-A Springfield: 3-for-4, 2B, BB, 3 R -- St. Louis' second-ranked prospect continues to make noise at the top of Springfield's lineup. Carlson reached safely four times and scored three runs to put to bed a 1-for-13 skid over his previous three games. The 2019 Texas League All-Star has been a consistent force all year, batting .287 or higher in three of the season's first four months. Carlson's name is all over the circuit's leaderboard, where he finds himself in a four-way tie for first in homers (16) while leading the way in runs (75) and placing sixth in RBIs (52). Overall,'s No. 86 overall prospect is batting .289/.369/.518 with 43 extra-base hits in 91 games. Gameday box score

Giants RHP Sean Hjelle, Class A Advanced San Jose: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 4 Ks -- A rough outing two weeks ago notwithstanding, San Francisco's No. 5 prospect has dominated in his first full-season campaign. Hjelle has been among the California League's best starters since his promotion from Class A August on May 20. The 6-foot-11, 225-pounder has averaged more than a strikeout per inning in 2019 while sporting a 2.74 ERA across 20 starts. Hjelle has surrendered two earned runs or fewer in nine of his last 10 outings with San Jose. Giants top prospect Joey Bart went deep for the 11th time. Gameday box score
Red Sox OF Jarren Duran, Double-A Portland: 4-for-5, R -- The hits haven't been as easy to come by for Boston's ninth-ranked prospect since his promotion to the Double-A Eastern League. Even after his four-hit effort on Wednesday, Duran is batting .246/.305/.286 in 45 games with the Sea Dogs. That lies in stark contrast to his .387/.456/.543 line that included 18 stolen bases in 50 games for Class A Advanced Salem. But recent indications show the 22-year-old might be starting to get a grasp on the EL. Duran has gone 10-for-16 during a four-game hitting streak that includes multi-hit performances in each.

D-backs OF Kristian Robinson, Class A Short Season Hillsboro: 2-for-4, HR, 3 RBIs -- Arizona's No. 6 prospect is more than likely nearing a change of address. Robinson homered for the second straight night and for the fourth time in his last five games overall. The 18-year-old leads the Northwest League with 34 RBIs and is batting .341 with 20 extra-base hits and eight stolen bases in nine attempts for the Hops. His nine home runs are two more than his previous career high, set last season, despite playing in 21 fewer games. Gameday box score

Royals RHP Gerson Garabito, Double-A Northwest Arkansas: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K -- With a rough patch in his rearview mirror, Kansas City's No. 28 prospect is proving to be one of the organization's best young hurlers. Garabito twirled his second scoreless outing in his last three. Going back further, the 23-year-old has surrendered two runs over his last four starts spanning 25 innings to bring his ERA down to 3.66. Gameday box score 
Twins 2B Nick Gordon, Triple-A Rochester: 3-for-5, 2B, RBI, R -- Minnesota's No. 11 prospect did his part during Rochester's 19-hit attack on Wednesday. Gordon equaled his season high in hits and extended his modest hitting streak to five. After a forgettable year spent mostly in the International League in 2018, the younger brother of Major Leaguer Dee Gordon has rebounded to bat .292/.333/.442 with 30 extra-base hits and 14 stolen bases in 62 games for the Red Wings this season. Gameday box score
Dodgers OF DJ Peters, Triple-A Oklahoma City: 3-for-5, HR, 2 R, RBI -- As if Oklahoma City didn't have enough trouble for opposing pitchers to worry about.

Peters has gone deep six times in his last 10 games, which includes back-to-back multi-homer performances.

Campusano is 17-for-41 (.415) with 11 RBIs in his last 11 games and his .328 average on the season sits atop the California League leaderboard. Gameday box score
