The Prospect Pulse: July 2nd, 2012

The Prospect Pulse is a recap of some of the top performances in the minors from the previous day. 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.
