Hoosier Tracker: Indiana Baseball

Dustin DeMuth, Sam Travis and Joey DeNato are also having good summers of minor league baseball. Two of them have been promoted in the last two weeks. Read more about it here.

Two months ago, Kyle Schwarber, Sam Travis, Dustin DeMuth and Joey DeNato were wrapping up their college baseball careers at Indiana University.

Now, they’re all playing minor league baseball.

I did a separate story earlier on Schwarber but here’s how the other three are doing.

DeMuth, a fifth round pick of the Brewers, started out playing rookie league ball in Helena (Mt.) in the Pioneer League. He played in 15 games, hit .403 (25-of-62) with three doubles, one triple, one home run and six RBI. On July 6, he was called up to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers of the Class A Midwest League. He played in eight games there through Saturday. DeMuth is hitting .259 with one double and five RBI. Overall in 23 games in the minors, he is hitting .360.

Travis, a second round pick of the Boston Red Sox, has bounced back from a tough start with the Lowell (Mass.) Spinners in the New York-Penn League in Class A Short Season play. He started 1-for-13 at the plate. Now, he’s hitting .296 in 28 games. He has three doubles, no triples, and three home runs and 20 RBI. In the last five games, he has nine RBI.

DeNato, a 19th round pick by the Phillies, started out playing for Williamsport (Pa.) in the same league as Travis. He pitched eight games with a 3.18 ERA and had a 2-0 record. On July 13, he was moved to the Lakewood Blue Claws in the Class A South Atlantic League. There he has appeared in two games, has a 1-0 record, and hasn’t allowed an earned run in 5 1/3 innings pitched.
