The Hotsheet (06/08 – 06/14)
#1 J.R. House – Norfolk Tides – 10 for 22 (2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 2B)
The Tides’ DH/first baseman put together a 7-game hitting streak that produced two home runs, seven RBI and a .460 batting average. Paging Mike Flanagan…
#2 Luis Jimenez – Bowie Baysox – 8 for 21 (2 HR, 6 RBI, 6 runs scored)
The first baseman for Baysox had a breakthrough week, with two home runs and six RBI during his seven game hitting streak.
#3 Chris Vinyard – Delmarva Shorebirds – 10 for 28 (2 doubles, 4 RBI)
Vinyard returns to The Hotsheet this week, after tallying four multi-hit games and driving in four runs en-route to a .360 batting average.
#4 David Cash – Delmarva Shorebirds – 10 for 30 (6 RBI, 7 runs scored)
The speedy outfielder stole three bases this week to go along with his four multi-hit games and .333 batting average. Delmarva’s outfield won’t stop producing.
#5 Billy Rowell – Delmarva Shorebirds – 8 for 26 (6 RBI, 4 2B, 1 3B, 7 runs scored)
The young infielder showed both discipline and power at the plate this week with five extra-base hits, three multi-hit games and six RBI. It’s safe to say that his slow start is over.
#6 Carlos Perez – Frederick Keys - 11.2IP, 9 H, 12 K, 3 ER, 2 wins
Perez elevated his record to .500 for the season with two victories this week, all while striking out more than a batter an inning.
#7 Jeff Fiorentino – Bowie Baysox – 9 for 23 (6 runs scored, 2 2B)
The Baysox outfielder has shown consistency at the plate of late, with hits in five of six games and three multi-hit games. Another notorious slow starter, Fio should be up to Baltimore to stay by September.
#8 Brandon Snyder – Delmarva Shorebirds – 8 for 25 (5 RBI, 4 runs scored)
The Shorebirds’ first baseman reached base safely in all seven games last week, while driving in five runs and hitting .320. Joe Jordan’s post-Wieters comment that Snyder’s bat will play at any position is beginning to ring true.
#9 Miguel Abreu – Delmarva Shorebirds – 9 for 29 (6 RBI, 2 2B, 1 HR)
The Shorebirds’ second baseman had three multi-hit games, one long ball and hit .310 for the week. Although he was hardly a premium draft choice, Abreu has his share of believers within the organization.
#10 Garrett Olson – Norfolk Tides – 13 IP, 9 H, 17 K, 1 ER, 1 W
Olson, who has fallen victim to a lack of run support this season, was able to pick up his fourth victory of the season and lower his ERA to 3.75 this week. As Steve Trachsel’s ERA catches up to his peripherals and injuries take their toll, Olson will get his chance against major league hitters this season.
The Not So Hotsheet
Oscar Salazar – Bowie Baysox – 2 for 21
The power hitting third baseman struggled to reach base this week with less than a .100 batting average.
Brandon Tripp – Delmarva Shorebirds – 3 for 23
The Shorebirds’ outfielder struck out nine times in six games and hit only .130 for the week. His blazing April is still propping up his season batting line, but Tripp has yet to put together an extended streak since his DL stint.
Brandon Fahey – Norfolk Tides – 3 for 22
The defensive stalwart saw his recent struggles at the plate continue this week with only three hits and one RBI.
