Prospect Notes: Travis d'Arnaud, Anthony Rendon, Kevin Gausman

BALTIMORE, MD - JULY 13: Kevin Gausman, the Baltimore Orioles first round draft pick of the 2012 draft, holds up his jersey during a news conference where it was announced the right hand pitcher from Louisiana State University had reached an agreement and signed with the club before the start of the Orioles game against the Detroit Tigers at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on July 13, 2012 in Baltimore, Maryland.

If you're like me, you really enjoy watching and following prospects as they make their path to the big leagues. I find it interesting to track each prospect's path to the big leagues or when their ETA (estimated time of arrival) is, so how are a few of the games top prospects right now doing? Let's check out the latest on a few of them...

  • The Toronto Blue Jays sound intent on having No. 1 prospect Travis d`Arnaud make the team's roster for 2013 and could even use him as their designated hitter, writes Shi Davidi of Sportsnet. The team could trade J.P. Arencibia this off-season to make room for d'Arnaud and, what Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos calls, "a unique bat."
  • The Baltimore Orioles are promoting one of their top prospects, right-handed starting pitcher Kevin Gausman, to Class-A Fredrick, according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com. Gausman was selected No. 4 overall in this past year's draft and threw just six innings before being promoted.
  • Anthony Rendon may have just been promoted to Class Double-A Harrisburg, but Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson isn't ruling out a possible September call up for the polished hitter to the big leagues. However, according to Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post, the Nationals front office is "highly unlikely" to do so in 2012.
