Nick Weglarz, LF-AKR: 2-4, 2 HR (3), 4 RBI, 2 R, K
Big day for Weglarz, who has been having a mostly dissapointing season so far for AA Akron. Repeating a level that he first played at back in 2009, Wegz is hitting just .213/.308/.350 overall for Akron, with the 3 HR and 10 RBI in 23 games. Most alarmingly, the normaly patient and selective Weglarz has just 10 walks and 31 strikeouts this season. Weglarz insists that he's finally healthy after a myriad of ailments over the past few seasons, so I was really expecting big things out of the slugging Canadian this year at AA Akron, but it's just not happening right now. He's a notorious slow starter, so there's still a chance that he'll pick things up as the weather warms up, but as of right now he's dangerously close to becoming a non-prospect. Wegz is one of the few OF drafted by the organization who really looked like he could be a slugging, middle of the order presence, so to see him struggle with injuries and ineffectiveness is really depressing. He'd look awfully good in left at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario, but with each passing month his .889 OPS in 50 games for AAA Columbus in 2010 looks more and more like a tantalizing taste of what might have been rather than a sign of things still to come.
Eric Berger, SP-COL: L (0-1), 6 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 6 K, 3 BB. Berger was good, but opposing starter Dellin Betances was better in a 2-1 Clipper loss. Yesterday was the first AAA start this year for the best mustache in all of minor league baseball.
Cord Phelps, 2B-COL: 2-4, HR (2), RBI, R. The Clippers managed just two hits as a team yesterday, and Phelps came through with both of them including his 2nd HR of the season.
Gio Soto, SP-AKR: L (3-1), 5 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, K, 2 BB. Soto wasn't horrible yesterday, but he wasn't good either in taking his first loss of the season for the Aeros. The single strikeout was by far his lowest of any start this season, but he's still struck out 31 hitters in 32 innings of work overall.
Loek Vam Mil, RP-AKR: IP, 2 K. His full name is Ludovicus Jacobus Maria Van Mil, he's 7'1", 260lbs, born in The Netherlands and yesterday was his Aeros debut. Not a bad little outing for the massive righty.
Thomas Neal, RF-AKR: 2-3, 2 1B. Neal is 6 for his last 13, and is hitting .282/.364/.346 overall. He's yet to hit a HR for Akron, but does have 5 2B in 22 games for the Aeros.
Tim Fedroff, CF-AKR: 2-5, 2 1B. Fedroff now has 4 multi-hit games in a row, and is 9-18 in that timeframe. In 28 games for the Aeros this year, he's hitting an outstanding .333/.437/.444 with 7 2B, 2 3B and 4 SB.
Adam Abraham, 1B-AKR: 1-3, HR (2), RBI, 2 BB, 2 R. Abraham is having his best season as a professional, hitting an impressive .294/.430/.515 with 2 HR and 8 RBI. The .515 SLG is 2nd on the team, and Abraham is earning plenty of playing time at 1B, DH and 3B.
Roberto Perez, C-AKR: 0-3, K. Not a great day at the plate, but Perez did gun down two of the three runners who foolishly tested his cannon arm.
Joseph Colon, SP-LCC: W (3-3), 8 IP, ER, 4 H, 3 K, 3 BB. In his last two starts, Colon has gone a combined 15 innings while allowing just one run on 7 hits while walking 3 and striking out 8.
Luigi Rodriguez, CF-LCC: 3-5, R, SB, CS. That's stolen base #9 for Luigi, as the race for the team lead continues. Lindor leads with 10, but Rodriguez and Myles are hot on his tail. Too bad #WASHTIME is on the DL, or he'd no doubt be involved as well.
Francisco Lindor, SS-LCC: 2-5, K. He's 18 years old and hitting .307/.354/.453 in the Midwest League. He has multipile hits in 6 of his last 10 games. He's leading the team in batting, and is 2nd in OPS, SLG and OBP. He's not just holding his own, he's excelling.
Jordan Smith, DH-LCC: 2-4, 2B, RBI, R. Smith was selected in the 9th round last year, and the 21-year old 3B/OF has been a solid presence in the middle of the order for the Captains all year. He's hiting a steady .278/.326/.506 with 2 HR, 4 2B, 4 3B and 13 RBI
Robel Garcia, 2B, LCC: 1-3, RBI, BB, K. Garcia is just 19, and after a slow start is now up to .235/.307/.322 overall with 2 HR and 11 RBI. His 10/31 BB/K ratio isn't great, but he's a free swinger with some pop so it's not totally unexpected either.
