The Hotsheet (6/15 – 6/21)
#1 Oscar Salazar – Bowie Baysox – 7 for 24 (2 2B, 9 RBI, 3 HR, 6 runs scored)
The Baysox leading RBI man was on fire this week, collecting hits in five of six games, belting three home runs and driving in nine runs.
#2 JR House – Norfolk Tides – 9 for 22 (HR, 7 RBI, 3 2B)
The Tides first baseman/DH raised his batting average to .316 following a week that saw him drive in seven runs and belt three doubles.
#3 Jon Knott – Norfolk Tides – 9 for 22 (2 HR, 4 RBI, 2 2B, 5 runs scored)
The outfielder showed his ability to hit the long ball this week, in addition to his two doubles and .410 batting average. He was promptly rewarded with a spot on the 25-man roster.
#4 Chris Vinyard – Delmarva Shorebirds – 6 for 17 (2 runs scored, 2B)
Vinyard continues to scorch South Atlantic League pitching and is now batting .360 over his last 11 games.
#5 Jim Johnson – Norfolk Tides – 8 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 6 K
The Tides’ right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.45 and brought his record to 3-6 on the season following his stellar performance against the Charlotte Knights. With the added pitching depth in the system, Johnson sometimes gets lost in the shuffle, but he is a legitimate prospect in his own right.
#6 Val Majewski – Bowie Baysox – 7 for 21 (3 RBI, 2B)
The Baysox outfielder tallied hits in five of six games this week, saw his season average climb to .281 and added to his team leading RBI total.
#7 Mike Cervenak – Norfolk Tides – 8 for 27 (4 runs scored, 2B, 2 RBI)
The Tides’ first baseman began the week with a sluggish bat, but heated up later in the week and tallied seven hits in his last three games.
#8 Todd Davison – Delmarva Shorebirds – 6 for 14 (3 runs scored, 2B, 3B)
Since being demoted from the Frederick Keys on June 5th, Davison is batting .333 with three RBI and four stolen bases.
#9 Garrett Olson – Norfolk Tides – 7 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 4 K
The southpaw continues to show why the Orioles have hurried him through the system with yet another solid performance.
#10 Eider Torres – Norfolk Tides – 6 for 19 (4 stolen bases, 2 2B, 4 runs scored)
The speedy second baseman tallied hits in five straight games and proved to be a menace to opposing pitchers and catchers while on the basepaths.
The Not So Hotsheet
Zachary Dillon – Frederick Keys – 1 for 17
The Keys’ catcher saw his inconsistencies at the plate continue this week, managing only one hit since June 11th.
David Cash – Delmarva Shorebirds – 2 for 17
The outfielder had a rough go of it at the plate this week, with only two hits and out six strikeouts in his last four games.
Ryan Hubele – Bowie Baysox – 2 for 17
It should be noted that Hubele did belt two home runs this week, but he finds himself on the Not So Hotsheet because they were his only two hits of the week.
