Minor League Ball Gameday: Tuesday, April 15

They call him "The Wis". - Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Butler, Wisler, Appel, Owens...Ten of the top arms in the minors were in action all over the country, check how they did here

Hey folks, it's Gameday time! The name of the game Monday was elite pitching. Ten of the top 60 overall prospects toed the rubber with varying degrees of success. Duel of the Day participant Matt Wisler was the only starter to not allow a run, throwing five scoreless with three walks and three hits allowed to go with five strike outs. He filled the zone with 50 strikes to 29 balls with eight ground outs and no outs made in the air. Carlos Martinez of the Cardinals also threw two perfect innings in the St. Louis pen, striking out one with two ground outs and three fly outs.

Check on your favorite players below along with the probable starters for today's slate of games and the running injury report. Enjoy!
