3-for-3 with the first two bombs of his career, both off Kluber, who dominated against every other hitter.

Matt Chapman, 3b, Athletics. Chapman, the No. 95 prospect on the Top 100 Prospects, will be called up in time to face the Yankees on Thursday. Chapman, who possesses above-average power, clubbed 16 homers at Triple-A and is expected to supplant Trevor Plouffe at third base. Chapman has the tools to be a plus defender at the hot corner, showcasing a plus-plus arm.

I think Nashville's lineup is better than Oakland's.  FWIW, Franklin Barreto went 2-5 plus a walk in the game yesterday, making him 360/416/584 on the season with 2 2b, 3 3b, and 4 HR.

Joey Wendle, Mark Canha, Matt Olson, and Renato Nunez are also on that roster.  Jaff Decker and Chad Pinder were both hitting and have moved up to the big squad.

Matt Chapman, 3b, Athletics.
Chapman, who missed about two weeks because of a left wrist injury,
appears to be getting healthy. Chapman, who hit 36 homers a year ago,
hit his first two of 2017 in Triple-A Nashville’s 11-0 rout of Round
Rock (Rangers). Chapman has above average raw power but is prone to
swings and misses and has struck out 15 times in 34 at-bats.

THE LINEUP

Newsmakers from Sunday's action:

Matt Chapman, 3b, Athletics.
Chapman, Oakland’s No. 3 prospect, was placed on the seven-day disabled
list by Triple-A Nashville because of a left wrist injury. Chapman
began the season 0-for-7 with six strikeouts.

There is no doubt about the 2014 first rounder's power, but he has struggled to make contact when not crushing baseballs, and his batting averages have suffered. He's proven to be very willing and able to take a walk, which could prop up his offensive value, but will have to demonstrate he can keep it up as he reaches higher levels. After a brief and unsuccessful stint in Triple-A last year he should return there to start this year, and will sure hit some home runs. He's a capable third baseman, but will need to show he has more than power to warrant a big league promotion this year. ATHLETICS

No. 100 on MLB.com's top 100 list.

Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 70 | Field: 60 | Overall: 55

Chapman
starred at Cal State Fullerton for three years before going to the A's
with No. 25 overall pick in the 2014 Draft and signing for $1.75
million. A knee injury delayed the start of his first full season until
May, and he missed most of the final two months while on the disabled
list with an ailing wrist. That didn't keep Chapman from a breakout
campaign, though, as he paced the A's system with 23 home runs despite
playing only 80 games at Class A Advanced Stockton. Chapman has
continued to showcase his huge power this season in the Texas League,
and it would be a surprise if he didn't blow past his 2015 total in that
department.

Chapman's loud physical tools highlight his high-end
combination of strength and athleticism. The right-handed hitter has
some swing-and-miss to his game and will need to do a better job
controlling the strike zone as he moves up the ladder, but he makes a
lot of hard contact with a line-drive oriented swing, and he impressed
with his feel for using the whole field last year during his time in the
California League. The power plays to all fields, too, thanks to his
quick bat and his significant extension through point of contact, the
combination of which could make him a 20-homer threat annually once
fully developed.

Chapman is a plus defender at third base with
excellent hands and smooth actions as well as plus-plus arm strength
that ranks among the best in the Minors at the position. Though his
ultimate impact will depend on the development of his hit tool,
Chapman's defense, along with his power potential, could still help him
achieve an everyday role in the big leagues.
