Here's what's on tap:

Thursday, 6:35 p.m. ET -- St. Paul (MIN) @ Indianapolis (PIT)
For the fourth week in a row, you can watch the electrifying Paul Skenes for free! Last week, the No. 3 overall prospect racked up a season-high eight strikeouts in 3 1/3 scoreless innings, keeping his spotless 0.00 ERA intact. Skenes once again showed his effortless velocity, throwing 15 pitches 100 mph or faster. For the Saints, Yunior Severino will lead a lineup looking to disrupt Skenes' flow. The Twins' No. 23 prospect slugged a Minor League-leading 35 homers in 2023.

Friday, 7:05 p.m. ET -- Fort Wayne (SD) @ Dayton (CIN)
MLB's No. 8 prospect Ethan Salas matches up against Rhett Lowder (MLB No. 32) in this High-A battle. Salas, just 17 years old, has already shown he possesses a polished approach at the plate and advanced bat-to-ball skills. The start will be Lowder's third of the season. In his first two outings, the 22-year-old has combined for 10 strikeouts in nine innings with just one run allowed.

Saturday, 4:08 p.m. ET -- Louisville (CIN) @ Iowa (CHC)
A potential matchup between a pair of Top 100 prospects is on tap when the Triple-A Bats visit the Cubs. Connor Phillips is scheduled to toe the rubber for Louisville and MLB's No. 64 prospect will likely face off against Pete Crow-Armstrong (MLB No. 16) and Owen Caissie (MLB No. 44). The Cubs' duo hasn't really taken off this season, but the pair has combined for 10 extra-base hits in the first two weeks of the year.

Sunday, 1:05 p.m. ET -- Hartford (COL) @ Somerset (NYY)
What better way to end the week than with a pair of heavy-hitting clubs? Featuring four Top 100 prospects, including three on the Yard Goats, fans of young and exciting sluggers will want to tune in to this matinee. MLB's No. 100 prospect Sterlin Thompson has gotten off to a hot start for the Yard Goats, who will have to deal with Yankees up-and-comer Spencer Jones. MLB's No. 77 prospect made his season debut last Saturday after missing the first week with a stiff neck.
