In this past week, Becerra continued his thermonuclear hit pace, and T J? Stayed hot as well. But he always stays hot.
SIX STARS OF THE WEEK:
Siena has a ridiculous .366/.496/.495 line in 29 games. On base 7 times in his last 2 games. Amazing.
After last night, I add a 7th STAR to the list: Ty Kelly went 4 for 4 Monday night for Vegas and is hitting .427. FOUR HUNDRED TWENTY SEVEN, FOLKS!
AAA LAS VEGAS 51'S:
Brandon Nimmo has hit .357 over his last 10 games to climb to .262. Just 6 doubles and a homer so far in the Pop Dept, though.
Rafael Montero? Sorry, lousy. 6.50 ERA. 10 runs in 9 innings in last two. (PHEW...5.2 innings of shutout ball last night. Awesome.)
Paul Sewald – always doing well. Nothing ever changes. In another season, he'd be pitching in Queens.
Dario Alvarez - Dario has K'd 23 in 11.1 IP, with a 7.15 ERA. Cool. I guess.
AA BINGHAMTON METS:
Matt Oberste has been keeping pace with Smith average-wise, as he did last season. Matt is hitting .287 with 12 ribbies.
Some young offensive stars leading the way:
Remaining really impressive out of the St Lucie pen are Tim Peterson, Kevin McGowan, Al Baldonado, and Ben Griset.
