Prospect Watch: Welcome back Jonathan Galvez. The Dominican prospect came off the DL and resumed playing 3B, a position he just started playing the past year after being a shortstop/secondbaseman since signing with the Padres. Despite being with the organization for seven years, Galvez just turned twenty-three in January. With the lack of middle infield depth in the system, Galvez might find himself in San Diego if he can show he is healthy.

Missions 0 – Corpus Christi Hooks 8
Prospect Watch: It wasn't pretty to watch this game. The Missions have been shutout a professional baseball leading six times this season. By comparison they were only shutout five times all last year. After starting the year hot, Jason Hagerty is hitting .174/.208/.348 in May and has struck out at least once in eight straight games.
Storm 2 – Lancaster Jethawks 7
Prospect Watch: Two of the Padres best power hitters are rehabbing in Lake Elsinore. Yet, it was Hunter Renfroe that put on the show. Renfroe didn't just hit his seventh home run of the year, he crushed his seventh home run. It was estimated at 483 feet, which would be roughly the same distance as the Giancarlo Stanton blast against the Padres in Miami. A man among boys.

TinCaps 1 – Lansing Lugnuts 0
Prospect Watch: If you are wondering who are these starters in Fort Wayne… you are not alone. With Kyle Loyd starting today, the TinCaps have now used 10 starters in 31 games. The TinCaps have seen injuries to Lockett, Verbitsky, De Horta, and Kelich plus ineffectiveness from Brasoban. After today's start hopefully Loyd gets more of a look. Thus far he has gone 16.2 IP, 11 H, 4 ER, 5 BB, 22 K.
