Jared Goedert, LF-AKR: 3-4, 3B, R.
Goedert has been the best hitter in the Eastern League this year, by far. He's leading the league in AVG, SLG, OBP and OPS. His 5 HR are good for 10th in the league, and his 20 BB are 5th. His overall line is now up to an eye-popping .395/.476/.613, and he's made it pretty clear that he's above AA at this point in his career. In his last two games, Goedert is 7-8 with 2 HR, a 3B, a 2B, 3 RBI and has scored 4 runs. Ironically, he's blocked at AAA by none other than Matt LaPorta, another player who is old for his level and putting up big numbers. Goedert has earned another shot at AAA with his performance, but something has to break in front of him in order for him to get a shot as he's pretty much limited to 1B/LF/DH defensively. He's played some 3B this year for the Aeros, but scouts have all but written off his ability to play the hot corner at the major league level. Goedert turns 27 later this month, and he's always been one of the hardest working players in the org both on and off the field. I'd like to see him get a major league shot someday, either with the Indians or another organization, but with each passing month it's looking less and less likely.
Cody Allen, RP-COL: 1 2/3 IP, 2 K. Allen is back on track after giving up runs in back-to-back outings. Since being promoted to AAA Columbus at the end of April, he's thrown 10 innings, allowed 4 ER while striking out 11 and walking 2.
Frank Herrmann, RP-COL: IP, H, 3 K. Herrmann actually has 20 K in 18 innings of work for the Clippers this season. Raise your hand if you saw that coming...now put your hand down, because you're lying.
Jason Donald, SS-COL: 2-3, 2 BB, SB. Donald isn't pouting after his demotion to AAA Columubs, going 3-6 with 3 BB, a run scored and a SB in his two games for the Clip Show.
Matt LaPorta, 1-4, HR (11), RBI, BB, R, K. Whatever. For those pining to see LaPorta come up to replace the offensively-challenged Casey Kotchman, understand that he's played more games in LF (14) than at 1B (12) this year. IF he gets another shot (which I still think is pointless), it's more likely to come in the OF than at 1B.
Russ Canzler, 1B-COL: 3-4, HR (3), RBI, R, K. Canzler is getting a late start on his IL MVP campaign, but he and LaPorta will likely share votes anyway making it difficult on either of them to win.
Preston Guilmet, RP-AKR: L (1-1), IP, ER, H, 2 K. Guilmet gave up a solo HR which provided the difference in a 2-1 Aeros loss. On the season, he's 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA, 11 K and 4 BB in 13 IP.
Rob Bryson, RP-AKR: IP, H, 2 BB. Bryson just can't stay consistent this season. He's been an extreme flyball pitcher this year, with a 0.30 GO/AO ratio, and he's walked 13 in 20 innings of work. He does have 23 strikeouts which have helped him to a solid 2.70 ERA, but the walks have to stop if he's going to be a reliable relief option down the road.
Tim Fedroff, PH-AKR: 0-1. Fedroff's hitting streak came to an end when he grounded out in a pinch hit appearance.
Trey Haley, RP-CAR: 2 IP, ER, 2 H, 3 K, BB. A 2nd-round pick back in 2008, Haley touches triple digits with his fastball. He started the season on the DL, but has now thrown 11 1/3 innings for the Mudcats. He's allowed just 1 ER while striking out 10 and walking 4. Walks have been an issue in the past with Haley, so if he can keep that number down it will go a long ways towards his development and possibly even see him return to a starting role.
Tyler Holt, CF-CAR: 2-4, RBI, K. Holt is hitting .270/.386/.297 in his last 10, with just one XBH (a double). His season line is still an impressive .305/.413/.382.
Tony Wolters, 2B-CAR: 1-4, 2B, BB, 2 K. After a miserable April, Wolters is picking things up a bit in May. In 13 games this month, he's hitting .265/.321/.367 overall, much improved over his .130/.231/.159 April.
Jesus Aguilar, 1B-CAR: 3-5, RBI. Big, Bad Jesus Aguilar just keeps on hitting for the Mudcats. His hit tool was a concern last year, but he's putting those fears to bed in 2012, hitting .312/.378/.512 with 5 HR and 19 RBI in 36 Carolina League games.
Shawn Morimando, SP-LCC: W (1-0), 5 IP, ER, 4 H, 6 K, BB. A really nice outing for Morimando, and the southpaw was able to pick up his first professional victory. In 3 starts for the Captains this year, he's 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA, 10 K and 6 BB in 14 IP.
Francisco Lindor, SS-LCC: 2-5, 2B, RBI, K. Just another day at the office for Lindor. In his last 10 games, he's gone for a .310/.341/.548 line with 2 HR, 2 2B, a 3B and 11 RBI.
Luigi Rodriguez, CF-LCC: 2-4, 2B, RBI, BB, 2 R, SB. Full stat sheet for Rodriguez, who's hit in 3 straight after going two games without a hit.
Alex Lavisky, C-LCC: 2-3, 2B, BB, R, K. Snapping a 0-11 streak, Lavisky collected a pair of knocks to raise his season line to .237/.387/.373.
Zach MacPhee, 2B-LCC: 2-4, 3B, 2 RBI, R. A 13th round pick last year, MacPhee hit his first career triple last night in a Captains victory. In 12 games this year, he's hitting .194/.356/.250.
