OFFENSE

MI Luis Guillorme 1-8, R, GIDP

Guillorme had a rare off week at the plate, but he is still hitting an impressive .283/.343/.382 while playing his usual outstanding defense.  In the All Star Game on Saturday, Guillorme started at SS going 1-3 with a run, double, and an RBI.

LF Kevin Kaczmarski 5-16, R, RBI, BB, 4 K, CS, RBI

Kaczmarski responded to his All Star snub by continuing his hitting streak extending it to six games.  He’s now hitting .375/.426/.482.  His .375 batting average is good for fourth in the league, and his .426 OBP ranks sixth.

3B David Thompson 2-12, R, 2B, K, GIDP

After getting snubbed from the All Star Game, Thompson has cooled off considerably at the plate.  Even with this recent dry spell, the third baseman is still hitting .311/.340/.533.

C Tomas Nido 0-5, R, SF, BB, RBI

While we have seen an increase in Nido’s walk rate, he has mostly struggled at the plate hitting .167/.250/.333.  He was also hitless in the All Star Game on Saturday going 0-2 and grounding into a double play.  Although, he did throw out a base runner.

PITCHING

RHP Mickey Jannis W, GS, 5.0 IP, H, BB, 5 K

Jannis continues his outstanding run in the Arizona Fall League picking up his first win after pitching five shutout one hit innings.  With that start, Jannis now has a 0.53 ERA and a 0.647 WHIP.  His ERA and WHIP are both the best among starting pitchers.

LHP Kyle Regnault SV, 2.0 IP, 4 K

With Regnault shutting down the competition, he got his first save opportunity on Friday.  His two scoreless appearances this week improves his already stats by lowering his ERA to 0.93 and his WHIP to 0.931.  At the same time, he’s raised his strike outs per nine to 12.1.

RHP Matt Pobereyko 2.0 IP, 2 K

Pobereyko continues to impress with two more scoreless appearances leaving him with a total of six scoreless appearances.  He’s not just keeping players from scoring, he’s keeping them from even reaching base with a 0.962 WHIP and an 11.4 K/9

RHP Tim Peterson 2.0 IP, BB, K

During his one appearance, Peterson pitched two scoreless innings lowering his already low ERA to 1.23 and his WHIP to 0.955.
