The Prospect Pulse: May 30th, 2012

The Prospect Pulse is a recap of some of the top prospect performances from the day before. Prospects are sorted by the league in which they play with their parent club is listed in parentheses. I will typically select 5-6 performances for each league but will vary that based on the number of games played. In addition, a hitter and pitcher of the day will be selected at the end of each article.
