Here’s the upcoming slate:

Wednesday, 6:35 p.m. ET — Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (MIA) @ Norfolk Tides (BAL)
It’s an upper-tier collision of two of the game’s brightest farm systems. Grayson Rodriguez (Orioles’ No. 2, MLB’s No. 3) will take the mound for a midweek start on the heels of a dominant 10-strikeout performance. Miami’s Triple-A affiliate also boasts MLB’s No. 65 prospect in the person of outfielder JJ Bleday, and Norfolk can count on pop from eighth-ranked Baltimore prospect Kyle Stowers.

Thursday, 6:35 p.m. ET — Richmond Flying Squirrels (SF) @ Akron RubberDucks (CLE)
Kyle Harrison, who’s been consistently among the Minors’ leaders in strikeouts ever since fanning 16 over his first two starts, brings a composite 1.82 ERA into his second Double-A start. The Giants’ No. 2 prospect (MLB’s No. 45) will face perhaps his biggest test of the year, though, as he goes up against an Akron lineup anchored by two of Cleveland’s — and MLB’s — best hitting prospects. George Valera (No. 43) tallied 15 extra-base hits through his first 40 games this year, and Brayan Rocchio (No. 78), long praised for his defense, has made his speed-and-power combination a factor for the RubberDucks all season.

Saturday, 6:35 p.m. ET — Somerset Patriots (NYY) @ Binghamton Rumble Ponies (NYM)
New York, New York. It’s Yankees vs. Mets at the Double-A level. The Yanks’ Anthony Volpe (MLB’s No 5 prospect) leads the Patriots against a Rumble Ponies team headlined by the Amazins’ top three prospects — catcher Francisco Álvarez (MLB No. 7), third baseman/outfielder Brett Baty (MLB No. 23) and shortstop Ronny Mauricio (MLB No. 73). Grab a slice and settle in.

Sunday, 6:00 p.m. ET — Bowie Baysox (BAL) @ Altoona Curve (PIT)
Tune in for the Pipeline Game of the Month, as Jonathan Mayo is on hand for an up-close look at a matchup featuring three Top 100 Prospects. Baltimore’s Gunnar Henderson (No. 48) looks to power the Baysox against a team that boasts Nick Gonzales (No. 18) and Liover Peguero (No. 62).
