2 Aaron Judge TRE Three more extra-base hits this past week, including his seventh home run, and walked five more times 2
       
3 Jordan Montgomery CHA Leads the farm system in ERA [2.27] and strikeouts [50]; he deserves a promotion 5

5 Tyler Wade TAM Only played in three games this past week but he's still among leaders in all non-power categories 3

7 Ben Gamel SWB Still leads the farm system in hitting [.338] and Scranton in OPS [.882] 6

13 Ramon Flores SWB Eight hits and four more walks this past week; he's as steady as they come 12

15 Jake Cave TRE Raised his batting average ten points this past week with a 7-game hit streak, including five multi-hit games 18
       
16 Nick Goody TRE Still trying to find his pre-surgery control but he's been outstanding all season long 15
       
17 Rob Refsnyder SWB Had just one hit this past week but still ranks second in the farm system in doubles [12] 11
       
18 Gabe Encinas TAM Walking too many but he's not getting hurt by it because nobody is hitting him NR
