I always include weekly stats for players in Baseball America’s top 30 for the organization. This week, the pitching was a little thin:

Luis Patino (No. 3 in organization): majors
Shane McClanahan (No. 5, no longer a prospect): majors
Shane Baz (No. 6): Olympics
Brendan McKay (No. 8): rehab assignment
Cole Wilcox (No. 10): injured list
Nick Bitsko (No. 11): injured list
JJ Goss (No. 12): injured list
Joe Ryan (No. 13): traded
