Hello everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday! It's Tuesday which is the worst day of the week in my opinion, so why don't we jump straight to the important stuff.

LHP Julio Urias was very impressive in his season debut with AAA Oklahoma City, tossing five shut out frames with nine punch outs and nary a walk to be seen. Fellow southpaw Rob Kaminsky chucked five one-hit innings for AA Akron as CF Bradley Zimmer gave him some support with a pair of homers. C Willson Contreras plated four while going 4 for 5 with a double, and SS Alex Bregman hit two bombs including a walk-off shot.
