Here's what's on tap:

Thursday, 9:30 p.m. ET – Modesto (SEA) @ Rancho Cucamonga (LAD)
A couple of Top 100 prospects clash in a meeting between the Single-A Mariners and Dodgers affiliates. Lazaro Montes (No. 84) has been anchoring the Modesto lineup, hovering near the top of California League leaderboard in multiple hitting categories. For Rancho Cucamonga, keep an eye on Josue De Paula. MLB’s No. 82 prospect is fresh off a three-game stretch last week in which he slugged four long balls, including the first multihomer performance of his career.

Friday, 7:35 p.m. ET – Birmingham (CWS) @ Biloxi (MIL)
Consider this a Double-A marquee matchup on the mound. Brewers fireballer Jacob Misiorowski toes the rubber in his fourth start of the month. MLB’s No. 23 prospect was stellar in his three previous appearances, fanning 16 while allowing just one earned run over 12 2/3 innings. Drew Thorpe (MLB No. 56) gets the ball for the White Sox affiliate, and he's coming off a scoreless outing in which he struck out seven over 5 2/3 innings. Edgar Quero (MLB No. 96), who has already matched his home run output from last season (six), looks to provide some punch at the plate for Birmingham.

Friday, 8:05 p.m. ET – Arkansas (SEA) @ Corpus Christi (HOU)
This Double-A contest is filled with speedy up-the-middle talent. The Travelers boast middle infielder Cole Young (MLB No. 27) and catcher Harry Ford (MLB No. 28), who have spent time hitting leadoff for the squad. The Mariners’ first-round picks in 2021 and ‘22, Ford and Young both show an advanced feel at the plate that has enabled them to post career OBPs around .400. Top Astros prospect Jacob Melton (MLB No. 73), meanwhile, has been a power-speed threat for the Hooks, who will be playing as the Malmö Oat Milkers (a designation every team in the Minors will do at least once this season).

Saturday, 6:35 p.m. ET – Lansing (OAK) @ Fort Wayne (SD)
The High-A TinCaps are led by one of the most formidable batteries in the Minors: catcher Ethan Salas (MLB No. 6) and right-hander Dylan Lesko (MLB No. 71). In their first start of the season together, Lesko was unhittable over four frames as Padres pitching prospects combined on a one-hitter, and he's coming off five innings of one-run ball with seven K's in his most recent start. They’ll have to contend with one of the hottest hitters in the Minors, Henry Bolte (OAK No. 10), whose 1.586 OPS last week earned him a spot on the Prospect Team of the Week.

Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET – Akron (CLE) @ Harrisburg (WSH)
Harrisburg’s loaded lineup is led by three powerful right-handed hitters on the Top 100 Prospects list. Outfielder Dylan Crews (MLB No. 7), third baseman Brady House (MLB No. 37) and corner infielder Yohandy Morales (MLB No. 90) all sport 60-grade power tools and are threats to go deep. Akron will match their bats with speed as middle infielder Kahlil Watson (CLE No. 14) and center fielder Petey Halpin (CLE No. 15) are heady baserunners as well as excellent defenders at premium positions.
