AMERICAN LEAGUE EAST
Blue Jays: Nate Pearson, RHP (No. 3, MLB No. 71) — 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 8 K (Double-A New Hampshire)
Pearson made his Double-A debut and picked up where he left off for Class A Advanced Dunedin. The 2017 first-rounder allowed only a pair of singles and fanned at least eight for the third time in seven starts this year. Pearson posted a 0.86 ERA in six starts for Dunedin. After his New Hampshire debut, his overall season ERA is 0.69.

Orioles: Zac Lowther, LHP (No. 8) — 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R (2 ER), 1 BB, 4 K (Double-A Bowie)
Lowther may have taken the loss as the Baysox fell, 3-2, to Altoona, but it was the lefty’s first quality start of the season as he completed six innings for the first time. Although he wasn’t getting deep into games earlier this season, he has only allowed more than two earned runs once in six starts. Over his last two starts, he has allowed only two earned runs in 11 1/3 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.73.

Rays: Garrett Whitley, OF (No. 27) — 2-for-4, HR (3), 3 RBI, 3 R (Class A Adv Charlotte)
After a pair of 0-for-4 games, Whitley bounced back in a big way, collecting his fifth multihit game of the season, but his first since April 28. His third homer of the season was a fourth-inning solo shot in the Stone Crabs’ 9-7 loss to Fort Myers. Whitley set season highs in RBIs (three) and runs scored (three). He is batting .231/.333/.451 through 27 games in his first stint at the Class A Advanced level.

Red Sox: Bobby Dalbec, 3B (No. 3) — 1-for-3, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, SB (Double-A Portland)
Dalbec may have only had one hit in the Sea Dogs’ 4-2 win over New Hampshire, but it was a big one. Down by a run in the sixth inning, Dalbec hit a two-run triple to put Portland ahead, 3-2, as the bullpen finished off the victory with three hitless innings of relief. It was his first three-bagger of the season and extended his hitting streak to four games. He has also driven in a run in four straight.

Yankees: Chance Adams, RHP (No. 20) — 6 2/3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K (Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre)

He gave up a two-out double to Jacob Stallings, the final batter he faced, in the seventh, and Stallings scored after Adams’ departure. After posting a 10.32 ERA through his first three starts, Adams is 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA over his last three outings.

For the third time in four starts, Oviedo completed six innings for Lake County. The right-hander improved to 4-2 with a gem, as he didn’t allow a run, gave up four hits, walked one and struck out a season-high nine. It was Oviedo’s best road start of the season, as he didn’t complete the first inning in either of his two previous away outings. He has a 3.72 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in seven starts. It’s not a surprise that Bradley hit a pair of homers for Columbus, as the 22-year-old hit 23 or more home runs in each of his first four pro seasons, including 27 between Columbus and Double-A Akron last year. This was Bradley’s first multihomer performance in 60 career Triple-A games.

Royals: Daniel Tillo, LHP (No. 25) — 8 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K (Class A Adv Wilmington)
Tillo made his deepest start of the season, and he did it efficiently, tossing 86 pitches (54 strikes) and notching his third win of the season in Wilmington’s 3-2 victory over Salem. It was the longest outing of Tillo’s pro career, as he twice completed seven innings in 2018. The lefty posted a 4.94 ERA in 19 starts for Wilmington last year and has a 5.29 ERA in six starts this season.

The pair of hitting prospects had identical offensive nights in the Mud Hens’ 10-5 win over Rochester. Cameron and Lugo combined to drive in six runs, with each driving in three and collecting a single, double, walk and run scored. Cameron was batting .186 entering May 2, but he has raised his average to .217 with a five-game hitting streak. Lugo is batting .327 with seven doubles and is 5-for-8 over his past two games.

Twins: Trevor Larnach, OF (No. 5) — 3-for-5, 2 HR (2), 4 RBI (Class A Adv Fort Myers)
Larnach not only belted his first two home runs of the season, but it was also his second multihomer game in his brief pro career. He also hit two home runs for Rookie-league Elizabethton last July 31. The 2018 first-rounder may have been homerless in his first 29 games at Class A Advanced, but Tuesday marked his fourth three-hit game of the season. His four RBIs matched a career high and helped power a 9-7 win for the Miracle.

Rutherford hit his first triple of the year, marking his fifth extra-base hit of the season. The 2016 first-rounder is playing at the Double-A level for the first time in his pro career.

Deichmann broke out of a 1-for-20 skid in a big way, belting a pair of home runs, including a tiebreaking two-run blast in the ninth inning that gave the RockHounds a 7-5 win. It was the second multihomer game of the outfielder’s pro career, as he also hit two homers for Class A Advanced Stockton last Aug. 26. Deichmann is batting .223/.302/.384 in 29 games this season, his first stint in Double-A.

Angels: Jahmai Jones, 2B (No. 4) — 1-for-3, HR (1), 2 RBI, R, BB (Double-A Mobile)
Jones was in a 1-for-21 slump when he came up in the sixth inning Tuesday night. He ended that skid in a big way by belting a two-run home run to provide all of the BayBears’ offense in a 2-0 win over Jacksonville. It was the first homer of the season for Jones, who struggled to open the year and went hitless in his first 22 at-bats of the season. The 2015 second-rounder could be starting to come around, as he has collected four of his 10 RBIs in the last two games.

Astros: Seth Beer, OF/1B (No. 10) — 2-for-4, HR (7), 2B, RBI, R (Class A Adv Fayetteville)
Although Fayetteville’s offense didn’t do much in a 5-1 loss to Carolina, it was another big night for Beer. The 2018 first-rounder hit a solo home run, his third long ball in his last five games. During that stretch, Beer is 9-for-21 with seven RBIs and six extra-base hits. Beer is raking in his first full pro season, batting .327/.406/.591 with seven homers and 28 RBIs through 29 games for the Woodpeckers.

Rizzo is batting .351 with an .870 OPS through 30 games with the Nuts. He ranks second in the California League with 40 hits.

Phillips has a 0.90 WHIP and has allowed only one home run in 37 2/3 innings. He also has a 28/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Garrett delivered his deepest outing of the season as the Hammerheads won the first game of a doubleheader, 2-1, over St. Lucie. The lefty gave up a leadoff single in the second, his only hit allowed, but that was erased by a strikeout/caught stealing double play to end the inning. Garrett exited with two outs in the fifth after throwing 81 pitches (47 strikes). After missing all of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, the 2016 first-rounder has a 3.91 ERA in his first five Class A Advanced starts.
