Not sharp in his one start this week, giving up eight earned in five innings, but he won, he's still tied for 3rd in ERA in the Midwest League, and nobody else stepped up so he stays #1 for the third straight week.
Three appearances, three innings pitched, two saves, just one hit and no earned runs. Currently second in the MWL in saves and tied for 3rd overall in all the minors. Gave up six earned in his first appearances of the year, has given up three since (21 appearances).
Just 4-26 this week with four runs scored (all on Tuesday) and had his nine game hit streak snapped. Not a great week, but still fifth in the California League in batting average.
Two appearances, three innings pitched, one earned run, zero walks, two strikeouts. Durable, his 30 appearances is tied for the most in the minors.
Just one start this week and it was underwhelming. Five innings pitched, seven hits, five earned, two walks, zero Ks and two homers. Got the win and holds onto the Southern League ERA top spot, drops two notches here.
Big week, going 7-15 with five runs scored, two doubles, a homer and three RBI. His nine game hit streak has him hitting .385 in June.
Holds at #7 because he went only one inning in his only start this week due to weather. Still managed to improve his ERA to 1.86 (0.47 as a reliever, 2.76 as a starter).
He's had a hit in all but one game in June, but hitting only .256 for the month, seven straight games currently. Was 6-17 with four runs scored, two doubles, a triple and two homers. Six RBI is nice. Has 23 extra base hits all year, had five this week.
Limited action, but was 4-10 with two homers and three RBI.
Tough week. Four appearances, 4.2 innings pitched, seven hits, three runs (two earned), took a loss. Lost both his 19 appearances scoreless streak and an equally long homerless streak.
Just keeps getting better. One start this week, seven innings pitched, two earned runs, two walks, five Ks. Bounce back performance after last week's three inning, seven earned run outing. Holds a 3.03 ERA and is 8-3 on the season.
Didn't get a decision, but that's becoming common (he's just 1-1 on the season despite eight starts), and doesn't change the fact that he went seven innings giving up only three hits (all three to Conor Jackson, who's hitting close to .380) and one earned with a season high eight strikeouts. His 2.89 ERA (2.77 as a starter) is third in the Pacific Coast League. Hasn't allowed more than four earned all year.
Two appearances, zero hits, zero earned runs. Only batter to reach got on with a HBP.
Just 3-25 this week with a double, but scored every time he reached base (four runs). Zero RBI and grounded into two double plays.
Just 4-21 but holds his spot by drawing six walks against only one strikeout and scoring five runs. Has walked 41 times this season with 35 Ks.
Five doubles and a homer among his nine hits (24 at bats). Showing more patience as well, drawing four walks. His .306 average ranks 12th among all minor league catchers.
Just 3-12 with a homer and two RBI, but is second in the PCL in doubles and extra base hits.
Like Tom Petty he's free fallin'. Two doubles and two runs scored, just three RBI, and more strikeouts (four) than hits (three) this week.
Coming on strong, 22.1 innings his last three starts with just five earned runs, three walks against 18 Ks. This week 1-0 with a seven inning, four hit, two earned outing.
As hot as they come right now, 9-20 this week with two doubles, four runs scored and a homer that proved to be the game winner. Hitting .432 in June, has had more than one hit in six of 11 games this month.
Ankle injury limited him to just one game, he was 0-3 with a walk, two Ks and a run scored.
Highest debut of the week after a seven inning, one earned that featured six Ks and only one walk. He's 3-0 in his last four starts, giving up a combined four earned in his last 26 innings.
Solid if unspectacular this week, going 7-23 with two RBI and four runs scored. Five BB against four strikeouts encouraging.
Tough week, just 1-11 grounding into as many double plays (1) as RBI.
A 15 game hit streak will get you a mid 20s debut. Three runs, and four RBI during 4-11 week, two doubles and three walks help.
Reached in seven straight games, 6-14 with seven runs scored on the week. Three doubles and a triple with four RBI.
Four walks is good, five K's isn't, and 1-13 is very not good. Only hit was a double, managed two RBI, hanging on for dear life.
Four for 19 with one run scored and three RBI, but having trouble with pitch recognition, one walk and six strikeouts.
A double, a triple, two RBI, just okay right? Five multi-hit games and a .381 average in June much better than okay. Started slow (.241 with zero homers and one RBI in April), not anymore (.300 with nine HR and 26 RBI since).
Lost his only start, (sarcastic) shock of the week, only went six innings, giving up seven hits and four earned. One walk and five Ks, needs to show he can go deeper into games and pitch on the road (2.33 ERA at home, 7.33 ERA on the road). Opponents hitting .304 against him this month
