David Cash and Paco Figueroa lead the way in this installment of The Hotsheet, while Brandon Erbe's struggles land him on The Not So Hotsheet.

The Hotsheet (5/25 – 5/31)

#1 David Cash – Delmarva Shorebirds – 11 for 25 (4 doubles, 4 RBI)

The Shorebirds’ left-fielder produced four doubles, a three-hit game, and a four-hit performance en route to a .440 batting average.

#2 Paco Figueroa – Bowie Baysox – 12 for 31 (5 doubles, 4 runs scored, 7 game hitting streak)

The second baseman put together a seven game hit streak that included four multi-hit games and an impressive .380 average at the plate. It’s no wonder Baysox manager Bien Figueroa said “He reminds me of Brian Roberts when he was younger”.

#3 Jason Dubois – Norfolk Tides – 9 for 27 (2 HR, 8 RBI)

The Tides outfielder gave his team a much needed offensive boost this week with two long balls, 8 RBI and a .333 batting average.

#4 Oscar Salazar – Bowie Baysox – 10 for 30 (HR, 7 RBI)

The Baysox slugger raised his average to .320 for the season this week with three multi-hit performances and 7 RBI and collected his 14th double of the season.

#5 J.R. HouseNorfolk Tides – 8 for 24 (6 runs scored, 3 RBI, 7-game hitting streak)

The Tides’ catcher continued to be the team’s most consistent bat this season, recording a seven game hitting streak and .333 average this week. Does anyone think Freddie Bynum could do this?

#6 Jeff FiorentinoBowie Baysox 9 for 28 (6 RBI, 2 HR, 4 runs scored)

The Baysox’ outfielder made The Hotsheet for the second consecutive week with three multi-hit games and a .320 batting average in seven games.

#7 Mike Cervenak Norfolk Tides – 9 for 28 (4 RBI, 2 three-hit games)

The Tides’ infielder continued to put the ball in play this week with a couple of three-hit games, four RBI and a .320 average. He’s on pace for a congratulatory cup-of-coffee in September.

#8 Brandon FaheyNorfolk Tides – 8 for 24 (4 runs scored, triple, HR)

Last season’s shortstop turned corner outfielder made The Hotsheet for the second week in a row with four runs scored, three multi-hit games and .333 batting average. Even Brandon Fahey is a better hitter than he showed in April.

#9 Mark FleisherFrederick Keys – 9 for 28 (5 doubles, HR, 4 runs scored)

The Keys’ first baseman makes his debut on The Hotsheet this week with five doubles and three multi-hit games.

#10 Val MajewskiBowie Baysox – 9 for 28 (4 doubles, triple, 4 runs scored)

The Rutgers University product produced five extra-base hits and three multi-hit games this week to go along with his .320 average. Is he finally waking up?

The Not So Hotsheet

Ryan FinanFrederick Keys – 2 for 22

The Keys first baseman really struggled to make contact with five strikeouts and a lowly .090 average for the week.

Chris VinyardDelmarva Shorebirds – 4 for 25

The Shorebirds RBI leader (44) tallied more strikeouts than hits for the week. His power is real, but the lack of plate discipline is a concern.

Brandon ErbeFrederick Keys – 2 GS (5.1 ip, 10 H, 8 ER, 5 K, 4 BB)

The Orioles’ best bet for an elite pitching prospect has looked ugly for a few weeks now and his ERA now sits over 6.00. At just 19 years old, he has plenty of time to turn it around, but his prospect status may take a hit.
