    Twins: Lewis Thorpe, LHP (No. 9) -- 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K (Triple-A Rochester); Alex Kirilloff, OF (No. 2, MLB No. 13) -- 1-for-4, HR (Double-A Pensacola)
    After tossing five innings of two-run ball in his MLB debut this past Sunday, Thorpe was back pitching for Rochester on Friday, and he delivered another solid outing in a 4-2 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In a seven-inning game that was the first of a scheduled doubleheader, Thorpe tossed six frames and notched his first quality start since May 12. It was the sixth time in 15 starts for the Red Wings that the lefty struck out at least eight. Now that Thorpe has had his first taste of big league experience, it's possible he'll be back in the Majors later this season, especially if he continues to have quality outings. It has been a rough season for Kirilloff, starting late due to injury and then spending more time on the IL during the campaign thanks for another ailment. The 21-year-old former first-rounder hasn't really had a chance to settle in with the Blue Wahoos, a step up after splitting last season between Cedar Rapids and Fort Myers at the Class A and Class A Advanced levels. Friday's homer was yet another step in the right direction for Kirilloff, who has RBIs in three straight games and snapped a streak of six starts without an extra-base hit. He's not batting at the .348 clip he posted last season, but .272 in a stop-and-start campaign a level up is a decent start. The Twins will want to see him build upon that and stay healthy as the season marches on. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Royce Lewis, SS (No. 1, No. 7 in MLB) -- 2-for-5, HR, 2 RBI (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    The All-Star break appears to have rejuvenated Lewis, who has homered in back-to-back games and is 5-for-12 (.417) over three games since returning from the SiriusXM Futures Game. The 2017 No. 1 overall Draft pick is having a bit of a down year offensively, hitting .237 with seven homers after hitting .292 with 14 homers in 2018. However, June was Lewis' best month of the season, and he has at least one hit in five of the six games he's played in July. In fact, he has four multihit efforts this month and may be on his way to a strong second half. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Trevor Larnach, OF (No. 4, MLB No. 93) -- 2-for-4, HR, 3 RBI, BB; Jordan Balazovic, RHP (No. 5, MLB No. 99) -- 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K (Class A Adv Fort Myers)
    Larnach's sixth home run of the year was a game-tying two-run shot in the third inning, and he later padded Fort Myers' lead in the seventh with an RBI single en route to his second straight multihit performance. The 2018 first-rounder from Oregon State is putting together an impressive first full season in the Florida State League, with a .310/.377/.458 line, six homers and 26 doubles in 82 games for the Miracle. Balazovic, fresh off of tossing a scoreless frame in Sunday's Futures Game, entered out of the bullpen to allow just one baserunner over four scoreless frames to seal Fort Myers' 8-4 win against Bradenton. The 20-year-old righty recorded half of his outs via the strikeout while throwing 39 of 55 pitches for strikes. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Alex Kirilloff, OF (No. 2, MLB No. 13) -- 3-for-4, 2 R, 2B, RBI (Double-A Pensacola)
    Kirilloff has looked like his 2018 self since returning from the injured list, as Saturday's three-hit performance gives him a .323 average and 11 extra-base hits (3 HR) over his 25 games. A wrist injury suffered during Spring Training delayed the start of Kirilloff's first Double-A campaign until early May after a 2018 season in which he ranked among the Minor League leaders with a .348 average (third), 71 extra-base hits (first), 296 total bases (first) and 101 RBIs (seventh). With his impressive feel to hit seemingly back in place, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 21-year-old outfielder go on a power surge to close out the season. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Jose Miranda, 2B/3B (No. 15) -- 3-for-4, 2B, RBI (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    Miranda has hits in each of the past three games, lifting his average up to .238 through 81 games. The 21-year-old, a second-round pick from the 2016 Draft, hasn't produced a ton early in his career and is a .255 hitter through 321 games, but he does have a pure swing and outstanding bat-to-ball skills. Miranda is very difficult to strike out and is adept at using the whole field. Twins prospects stats

    RP: Jordan Balazovic, Fort Myers Miracle (Class A Advanced)
    (Twins No. 5 prospect/MLB No. 99)
    1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 G, 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 SO, 0.25 WHIP

    The Twins eased Balazovic back into the Florida State League with a relief appearance after he worked in the Futures Game, and he responded with six strikeouts in four nearly perfect innings. He owns a 2.58 ERA, 97/19 K/BB ratio and .195 opponent average in 69 2/3 innings between two Class A assignments.

    Twins: Wander Javier, SS (No. 6) -- 4-for-5, 2 HR, 6 RBI (Class A Cedar Rapids)
    By all measures the 2019 season has been a challenging one for Javier, who missed all of '18 due to labrum surgery (non-throwing shoulder). He entered Monday with a .134 overall average and was batting just .049 in 11 games this month before erupting to hit a grand slam as part of a two-homer, four-hit game for the Kernels. The 20-year-old shortstop doubled his home run total in the process, and his six RBIs marked a career high. He was a standout in the Appalachian League in 2017, when he batted .299/.383/.471 over 41 games in his second pro season after signing with the Twins for $4.5 million in July 2015.

    Twins: Jhoan Duran, RHP (No. 8) -- 6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    Duran's 2-8 record certainly stands out, but it's not indicative of how the right-hander has pitched. The 21-year-old has a 3.16 ERA through 68 innings (14 games, 13 starts) this season and has held opponents to two earned runs or fewer in seven of his past eight appearances. Duran, a Dominican Republic native, mostly relies on his two fastballs -- a mid-90's four-seamer and a low-90's two-seamer that is a hybrid sinker and splitter -- although he does flash a plus curve from time to time.

    Outfielder Trevor Larnach, Minnesota's No. 4 prospect per MLB Pipeline and No. 93 in the Top 100, continued his quick rise through the Twins' system with a promotion to Double-A Pensacola on Tuesday. Larnach, 22, was Minnesota's first-round selection (No. 20 overall) in the 2018 MLB Draft. He was 1-for-4 with a run scored and a strikeout in his Pensacola debut.

    After splitting time between Rookie-level Elizabethton and Class A Cedar Rapids last season, Larnach began 2019 with Class A Advanced Fort Myers and hit .316/.382/.459 with six homers, a triple and 26 doubles in 84 games. He was named to the midseason Florida State League All-Star team and was MiLB.com's FSL Player of the Month in May.

    At the time of his promotion, Larnach's .316 average and .842 OPS led all qualified FSL hitters. In the Pensacola outfield, he will play alongside 2016 first-rounder Alex Kirilloff, the No. 13 prospect in MLB Pipeline's Top 100 and the No. 2 prospect in the Twins' organization.

    Twins: Royce Lewis, SS (No. 1, No. 7 in MLB) -- 3-for-5, 2B (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    Lewis, hitting .240 through 88 games, turned in his third three-hit performance of the season for the Miracle. The former No. 1 overall pick (2017) got off to a slow start this season and hit .209 in April, but his monthly averages have each been better than the last. In fact, through 13 games in July, Lewis is hitting .302. Twins prospects stats

    Twins: Royce Lewis, SS (No. 1, MLB No. 7) -- 2-for-4, R, BB (Class A Adv Fort Myers)
    After notching two more hits Saturday in his second straight multihit game, Lewis is now batting .316 in 14 games this month after posting a combined .229 average during the first three months of the season. His .242 average and .297 OBP aside, the former No. 1 overall pick (2017) has quietly put together a solid campaign in the Florida State League, tallying 27 extra-base hits and 16 steals in 89 games for the Miracle.

    Twins: Trevor Larnach, OF (No. 4, MLB No. 92) -- 1-for-2, HR, RBI, BB (Double-A Pensacola)
    Larnach's solo shot for Pensacola was his first at the Double-A level, and he's now hit safely in four straight games since his promotion on July 16. The 2018 first-rounder actually owns an 11-game hitting streak dating back to his time in the Florida State League -- a stretch during which he's batting .386 with a pair of home runs and eight RBIs. Altogether, Larnach has produced a .314/.382/.461 line with 34 extra-base hits and 46 RBIs over 88 games in his first full season. Twins prospects stats
