Hunter Harvey is ready for two of the biggest events of his life. First the 18-year-old will graduate from high school on Friday.. Less than two weeks later, he'll take the first step toward his future career -- the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, set for June 6-8 in New York.

The Blue Jays still haven't made their decision on who their starting pitcher will be on Friday, but it may be a fresh face.
The Orioles are hoping to find the same magic they found last season. Here's your chance, Kevin Gausman. After just 13 Minor League starts, he'll get the ball Thursday in Toronto. With the organization's other prized prospect, Dylan Bundy, injured, he's the club's best prospect.
The Orioles on Thursday will officially promote Kevin Gausman and add him to the active roster for his Major League debut that night in Toronto, a bold move for an organization that shocked the baseball world when it called up 20-year-old infielder Manny Machado in the middle of a pennant race last August.
Prospect Jonathan Schoop has a stress fracture in his lower back, general manager Dan Duquette said on Wednesday.

D-backs outfielder Adam Eaton has returned to Phoenix to have his left elbow examined by team physician Michael Lee. According to Eaton, the issue is most likely muscular, but he's going to have an MRI to make sure.
After two straight starts by Jurickson Profar at second base, Leury Garcia was in the lineup on Wednesday afternoon as the Rangers try to get by while Ian Kinsler is on the disabled list with a strained muscle in his right ribcage. Profar is the big prospect, but manager Ron Washington wants to keep Garcia engaged because he is expected to remain the Rangers' utility player once Kinsler returns.
Left-handed prospect Martin Perez missed two months with a broken left arm and the Rangers would like to give him more time before considering him as an option at the Major League level. But he is one of several under consideration to pitch the second game of a doubleheader against the Diamondbacks on Monday in Arizona.
Manager Don Mattingly said the Dodgers have had internal conversations about calling up outfield prospects Yasiel Puig or Joc Pederson -- the club's Nos. 1 and 3 prospects, according to MLB.com.
Brewers Minor League pitching prospect Damien Magnifico has a big right arm and, it turns out, a big heart. Magnifico took to Twitter on Tuesday, hoping to raise awareness of the disaster relief efforts under way in Oklahoma, and pledged to make a donation for every re-Tweet he received.

Luis Valbuena has been the Cubs' primary third baseman this season, but the club also has Ian Stewart and Josh Vitters in its farm system. According to manager Dale Sveum, developing prospect Vitters is the team's top priority.
