Minor League Monitor: Jesus Montero Is Hitting Like A Deity, Julio Teheran Makes AAA Debut, International League Review plus Bryce Harper's Slump Continues

Jesus Montero has been on fire, batting .480 with 3 doubles and a home run. If he keeps hitting like this the Yankees will have no excuse to keep him down.

Alex Presley has been impressive going 12-24 with a double, triple, home run and two stolen bases.

Looking to rebound from a down year, Jordan Parraz is red hot batting .455 with a double, triple and two home runs.

Rudy Owens surprise surprise didn't walk anybody over 7 innings. He gave up a single run on a home run and struck out 6.

Gookie Dawkins continues to hit, compiling a .429 AVG with 3 doubles and 2 home runs.

Jason Kipnis is having trouble getting out of the gate in his first AAA stint. He is batting .176.

Jenrry Mejia pitched 6 scoreless frames giving up 3 hits, 2 walks and striking out 6.

Lonnie Chisenhall has only 5 hits in 21 at bats but all 5 hits have been for extra bases. He has 4 doubles and a home run.

Scott Sizemore is showing why he's still a prospect worth watching by hitting .385 with a double, a home run and three walks.

Tom Milone lasted 7 innings without allowing a run. He walked none, gave up 5 hits and struck out 4.

Rays prospect Alex Cobb pitched 5 strong innings giving up a single run on 3 hits and 2 walks while fanning 7.

Zack Cozart has been dreadful going 1-16.

With Manny out of the picture Desmond Jennings could get called up soon. He is doing his part by hitting .348 with a double, a home run, 2 stolen bases and 5 walks.

Chase D'Arnaud is having a solid season batting .381 with 2 doubles, 2 triples and 3 walks to a single strikeout. I had a chance to watch him play the other day and he looked very good. A bit of pop in his bat and solid D.

Mike Minor was back with the Gwinnett Braves and pitched 6 innings in his first start back. He struck out 9, walked 1 and gave up 2 runs on 6 hits.

Stefan Gartrell has been on fire with a .368 AVG, 4 doubles and a home run in 6 games.

Andrew Oliver now has 2 strong outings under his belt. He has pitched 12 innings with a 2.25 ERA on 7 hits, 3 walks and 14 punchouts. He was in command during the game I watched him pitch. The Tigers could have another solid arm in their rotation real soon.

Dillon Gee had a much better second start of the season. He lasted 7 frames giving up a single run. His season ERA is now 4.63 in 11.2 innings.

Julio Teheran made his AAA debut lasting 5.2 innings giving up 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 run and struck out 3.

Andrew Lambo has struggled mightily having managed only a single hit in 20 at bats. He has struck out 11 times with 2 walks.

Jair Jurrjens won his rehab start. He lasted 6 innings allowing 2 earned runs and struck out 3.

Bryce Harper watch: Just as quickly as Harper's bat woke up it fell back asleep. He had 2 hits on Monday before going 0-4 Tuesday with 3 strikeouts. He is batting .211 with 4 singles and 2 walks. He has struck out 7 times in 5 games. Not exactly the 80 power threat we thought we would see but it's still early. Harper clearly has a target on his chest so every pitcher will be giving him 110%.
