·         Matt Dominguez is still looking for his stroke as his is sitting at .213 for the season.

·         Wilmer Flores had a down week but has had a really nice year so far in A-ball for the Mets.  He is slugging .505 with 5 HR and 32 RBI in 43 games.

·         Wil Myers had a good week at the dish and is contributing in all areas from the Catcher slot.  5 for 7 in steal attempts as well as 6 HR for the year. 

·         Greg Halman returned from the DL and is back to doing the two things he loves most on the baseball field – hitting homers and striking out (although I suspect he likes the homers better).  Great power but he is limited with his 37K’s in 22 games. 

·         Chris Marrero might be starting to heat up.  He was one of the, if not the, best HS hitters to be drafted in 2006 and he was a Baseball Prospectus top 100 prospect in 2008.  He was injured that year and never really got it going in 2009.  2010 started much like the 09 version with a low average and average power numbers.  When drafted, some had his power ranked 80 on the 20-80 scale.  He raised his average over the last couple of weeks from the .220 area to nearly.260.  He doesn’t have much defensive value which is why his bat will have to carry him.  In Washington, he will get his chance and he can push the timetable with a solid year at AA.

·         Austin Romine continues his strong play and is batting .324 on the year.  He is the best bet to be the long term replacement of Jorge Posada in New YorkJesus Montero will get his shot but the Yankees will find a way to ensure his bat gets some play either at DH or some other position.

·         Derek Norris just came back from the DL (wrist).  He played a couple of games with good numbers (above) but was hit in the head with a fastball and was knocked unconscious for 45 seconds.  He was kept in the hospital overnight after laying motionless for 10 minutes on the field.  He will be taking it slow to come back as it was a Grade 2 concussion.  He has a good bat and may ultimately have to switch to 1st base if concussions become a problem for him at the catcher position.

·         Ben Revere continues his very good season.  He is now 17 for 21 in stolen base attempts and is hitting .323 with 16K’s vs. 16BB on the year.

·         Hector Rondon is on the 7-day DL with discomfort in his elbow and forearm.  He hasn’t been very good this season so its possible this was bothering him for a while now.  Hope nothing is seriously wrong as the Indians need all the help they can get and Rondon is 21 years old pitching in AAA – he is good, just not healthy at the moment.

·         Tanner Scheppers continues to pitch well in AAA – he has 15K’s in 10.1 IP with 6 walks and only 2 ER since his promotion.  Texas will be calling soon.

·         Drew Storen got the call from Washington and has held his own at the MLB level.  In 4 games he has pitched 4 innings with 1 ER and 3 K’s vs. 2 BB. 

·         Ethan Martin has only allowed 1 HR this year.  He owns a good strike out ratio with 43K in 36 IP.  The 24 BB have hurt him a bit but he is a good one.

·         Kyle Gibson was moved to AA a couple weeks ago and has been excellent.  2 ER in 14 IP with 16K’s and only 2 BB.

·         Dan Hudson is 5-3 on the year and has 59 strike outs in only 46 IP. 

·         Brad Lincoln for the year is 5-2 with a 3.77 ERA.  42K’s to 12BB shows good control and may get a look late in the year at the bigs.
