Playing for the Single-A Rome Braves, Albies has been lashing the ball with a .331/.387/.426 slash line and has been fielding his position quite well. Younger players tend to attract a lot of attention, and Albies has the speed, defense and hitting ability to be merit the spotlight.Ozhaino Albies has 33 multi-hit games in 79 played this season. Currently hitting .332.

Brito has a .269/.300/.399 slash line, and he is an outstanding defensive player with a powerful arm. If he can gain a little more patience at the plate, he'll have an excellent chance to develop.Diamondbacks farm report: Socrates Brito on a roll http://t.co/x5Z6ATM2C0 pic.twitter.com/WwzlfWDbgZ Arizona Diamondbacks (@DiamondbacksRR) July 10, 2015U.S. TeamC Kyle Schwarber, Chicago Cubs:When the Cubs went on the road and played against American League opponents, that meant they had a chance to play with a designated hitter in their lineup. They used that opportunity to call Schwarber up from Iowa, and he went an impressive 8-for-22 in his brief trial before he was returned to the Triple-A level.Schwarber is a powerful left-handed hitter who has to improve his defense before he gets called up to play on a full-time basis.NOW PLAYING ON http://t.co/h5NSY7VuJN: No. 2 #Cubs prospect @kschwarb12 of @iowacubs homered in second straight game. http://t.co/MNUDdrfkNX MiLB.com (@MiLB) July 9, 2015OF Nick Williams, Texas Rangers:Williams was selected in the second round of the 2012 draft, and he is coming around this season with Double-A Frisco. Williams has a .295/.354/.455 slash line along with nine home runs and 35 RBI. He has excellent tools, but tends to be streaky.NICK WILLIAMS.
