Here’s what’s on tap for the week:

Thursday, 6:35 p.m. ET — Harrisburg (WSH) vs. Binghamton (NYM)
Dylan Crews meets the Mets. In the MLB Pipeline Game of the Month, the Nationals’ loaded Double-A club — the Harrisburg Senators — takes on a Rumble Ponies squad headlined by two top-shelf prospects New York added at the Trade Deadline. Luisangel Acuña — MLB’s No. 40 prospect and younger brother of the National League MVP candidate — came from the Rangers in the Max Scherzer deal. Drew Gilbert — MLB’s No. 56 and a 2022 first-round pick of the Astros — came over in the Justin Verlander trade. Binghamton added another big name this week, as the Mets promoted Kevin Parada, MLB’s No. 93 prospect, on Tuesday. Crews, the No. 2 overall pick from this year’s Draft, joined the Senators last week, adding MLB’s No. 4 prospect to a club that already features No. 7 James Wood and No. 43 Brady House. More »

Friday, 6:05 p.m. ET — Altoona (PIT) vs. Erie (DET)
Paul Skenes will be eager to show how well his stuff can play in the upper levels of the Minors when he takes the mound as MLB’s top-ranked pitching prospect for the Curve in this one. After posting nearly perfect outings in his first three pro appearances, the No. 1 overall pick from this year’s Draft allowed four runs and went only two-thirds of an inning (the Pirates were hoping to see him go two full frames) in his Double-A debut last week. Looking to spoil his evening will be power-hitting Jace Jung, the Tigers’ No. 4 prospect (and MLB’s No. 71).

Saturday, 6:30 p.m. ET — Hickory (TEX) vs. Greensboro (PIT)
Wyatt Langford was considered by many the best overall hitter in this year’s Draft class. Termarr Johnson was considered perhaps the best prep hitter in decades before last year’s Draft. They each went fourth overall in their respective Drafts, with the Pirates grabbing Johnson last year and the Rangers scooping up Langford in July. They meet in a Saturday night showdown as the University of Florida product (now MLB’s No. 13 prospect) leads the High-A Crawdads against the 19-year-old second baseman (MLB No. 23) and the Grasshoppers.

Sunday, 6:05 p.m. ET — Brooklyn (NYM) vs. Greenville (BOS)
Red Sox prospects Roman Anthony (MLB No. 37) and Kyle Teel (MLB No. 87) as headliners make the Drive one of the most interesting clubs at the High-A level. Anthony, an outfielder with 60-grade power, was Boston’s third pick (79th overall) in last year’s Draft, and slugging catcher Teel was its first selection (14th overall) this year. The Mets-affiliated Cyclones boast MLB No. 82 prospect Jett Williams, a speedy outfielder who entered August with six homers on the year but added five more in Brooklyn’s first four series of the month.
