Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Double-A Birmingham

Eloy Jimenez had three hits and came a triple shy of the cycle in Birmingham's 5-4 win. That obviously included a home run, Jimenez's fifth of the season, and the White Sox top-ranked prospect also drove in three runs. Since starting his season 0-for-10, Jimenez has been red hot, slashing .346/.345/.712 with five homers, four doubles and 16 RBIs over his last 12 games. Friday, Zack Collins also had a hit and walked three times. Jordan Stephens allowed just two earned runs and struck out eight batters in 6.2 innings.

Triple-A Charlotte

Thyago Vieira continues to give up runs in his relief appearances. He allowed two runs during his two innings of work in Friday's 7-5 loss and has now allowed at least one run to score in five of his 11 outings this season, owning an ERA of 6.92.

Class A Kannapolis

Evan Skoug homered for the second straight game in an 11-0 win, and though his batting average is still below .200, he's been good in four May games, 4-for-13 with two homers, two doubles, six RBIs and four walks.

Class A Winston-Salem

Blake Rutherford had two hits, and Gavin Sheets had a bases-clearing, three-run double in a 10-6 loss. Micker Adolfo scored twice, and Luis Alexander Basabe doubled.
