Tyson Brummett (Spanish Fork H.S.), Chattanooga (Los Angeles Dodgers): Allowed six hits and one run in five innings, falling to Jackson 4-0 on Tuesday. Brummett toed the slab again against Jackson on Sunday, pitching seven scoreless innings in a 12-0 win.

The Spanish Fork alum is 1-1 with a 0.56 ERA in three starts with the Lookouts this season.

Parker Morin (Utah), Northwest Arkansas (Kansas City Royals): One hits in eight at-bats over the past week. He also drew a walk. Morin is hitting .240 in eight games this season.

Matt Neil (BYU), Montgomery (Tampa Bay Rays): Five hits, one run, two strikeouts in an extended relief appearance for the Biscuits on Friday. Neil picked up the win for Montgomery in his 2014 season debut.

The BYU alum signed with Montgomery this week after being released from the Miami Marlins organization at the tail end of spring training.

Braeden Schlehuber (Viewmont H.S.), Mississippi (Atlanta Braves): Zero hits in six at-bats in three games played over the week. The Bountiful native picked up his second RBI of the season on an RBI groundout during the Braves’ 3-0 victory over Huntsville on Wednesday.

Keenyn Walker (Judge Memorial H.S.), Birmingham (Chicago White Sox): Three hits in 18 at-bats over the week, scoring four runs and driving in two more for the Barons. He also stole his first base since the first week of the season on Sunday.

However, Walker has continued to struggle with his strikeout to walk numbers this season. He has drawn just one walk over his last 10 games, while striking out 16 times.


Chris Capper (BYU), South Bend (Arizona Diamondbacks): Remains on the 7-Day disabled list. Has yet to appear in a game with the Silver Hawks this season.

Taylor Cole (BYU), Dunedin (Toronto Blue Jays): Six hits over six innings, allowing two runs, walking two and striking out seven in a 10-3 win over Daytona.

Cole (2-0, 2.55 ERA) is slated to pitch again Monday night at Lakeland.

Jake Hannemann (BYU), Kane County (Chicago Cubs): Five hits, one walk and seven strikeouts in 23 at-bats over the week. The former BYU player also added four stolen bases.

After a solid start to the season, Hannamann is batting just .195 over his last 10 games and wields a .226 batting average on the young season. He’s also stolen eight bases in 13 games.

Adam Law (BYU), Rancho Cucamonga (Los Angeles Dodgers): Eight hits (two doubles) in 20 at-bats over the past week. The BYU alum is currently enjoying an eight-game hitting streak and drove in five RBIs over the past three games. He’s batting .279 on the season for the Quakes.

Marcus Littlewood (Pine View H.S.), Clinton (Seattle Mariners): Three hits (each extra base hits) in four games over the week, scoring four times and driving in two more.

Littlewood also cranked out his first home run of the season, blasting a solo shot in Clinton’s 7-1 victory over Bowling Green on Friday. He’s batting .385 after 10 games this season, with six RBIs and 11 runs scored.

Tyler Wagner (Utah), Brevard County (Milwaukee Brewers): Allowed eight hits, two walks and three runs (two earned), while striking out three in 6 2/3 innings, picking up win over Lakeland on Monday. Wagner also scattered just four hits in six shutout innings in a no-decision against Dunedin on Saturday, collecting six more strikeouts.

The ex-Ute is 3-0 with a 1.17 ERA in 23 innings for the Manatees.
