Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Tuesday, August 16th edition of the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread. Here are some items worthy of your attention today:

*****Milwaukee Brewers outfield prospect Lewis Brinson has been placed on the disabled list for Triple-A Colorado Springs with a strained hamstring. Acquired in the August 1st. Jonathan Lucroy trade with the Texas Rangers, Brinson was hitting .391/.375/.543 in 12 games for the Sky Sox. He was in line for a September call-up but we'll have to see if the injury is bad enough to scotch that possibility.

*****At Faketeams, Ray Guilfoyle gives a fantasy roundup on Mookie Betts, Byron Buxton, and David Phelps.

*****At Baseball America, Kyle Glaser looks at nine prospects who could help their contending teams down the stretch.

*****Chris "Fangraphs" Mitchell looks at Houston Astros prospect Teoscar Hernandez. We posted our own take on the rookie outfielder posted earlier today.

*****At The Hardball Times, Kyle Sammin looks at the role of luck in baseball.
