Here's what's on tap:

Thursday, 10:05 p.m. ET – San Jose (SF) @ Modesto (SEA)
Bryce Eldridge and Lazaro Montes go head-to-head in a rematch of the 2023 California League semifinals series. Leading a Nuts squad that features six other hitters on the Mariners’ Top 30 list, Montes – MLB's No. 82 prospect -- has posted videogame-type numbers so far in 2024. The Cuba native has been sitting atop the circuit in every major offensive category including home runs, OPS and batting average. Eldridge – MLB's No. 74 prospect – has had a noteworthy season in his own right, ranking in the top five in many of the same categories.

Friday, 7:05 p.m. ET – Altoona (PIT) @ Bowie (BAL)
Bubba Chandler (MLB No. 64) has some of the best stuff in Double-A and will put that on display in his 12th start of the year. Although his ERA is on the high side (5.13), he has 47 strikeouts in 40 1/3 innings -- including a season-high seven last time out. His biggest challenge in this contest looks to be up-and-coming Orioles catching prospect Samuel Basallo (MLB No. 13), who sports 60 grades for both his hit and power tools and already stands at double-digit homers this season.

Saturday, 9:30 p.m. ET – Lake Elsinore (SD) @ Visalia (AZ)
Two talented prospects who could become NL West rivals before long headline this Single-A matchup. Druw Jones (MLB No. 78) is tapping into the skills that enabled him to earn the largest Draft bonus in D-backs history with two homers last week and the same stellar defense as ever. Top international prospect Leodalis De Vries (MLB No. 79) is the youngest player in full-season ball -- he doesn't turn 18 until October -- and has five-tool potential as a switch-hitting shortstop. He's been tapping into his extra-base power more lately, with a stretch of five straight hits that were doubles in June.

Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET – Rochester (WSH) @ Syracuse (NYM)
James Wood, MLB's No. 4 prospect, was sidelined in late May with right hamstring tightness but is expected back for this contest. When healthy he's done nothing but mash, with a .355/.465/.596 line and nine homers in 45 games before the injury. And he's been joined by Dylan Crews (MLB No. 6). The 2023 Golden Spikes Award winner burst onto the scene in pro ball last summer and this year's success has put him a level away from The Show. The Mets' Triple-A affiliate counters with speed in the form of Luisangel Acuña (MLB No. 77). After stealing 57 bases last season, the younger brother of All-Star Ronald entered the week second in the International League in swipes.
