Jesus Montero was named the Triple-A International League Player of the Month, a completely deserved honor. Montero has simply killed the ball for weeks now. Melky Mesa, meanwhile, is your High-A Florida State League Player of the Week. That’s not as cool as being Player of the Month, but it ain’t too shabby.
Triple-A Scranton was washed out. They’re make to this one up as part of a doubleheader on August 28th.
Double-A Trenton (5-3 loss to Altoona)
Justin Christian, CF & Dan Brewer, RF: both 2 for 4, 1 R – Christian doubled & stole a base … Brewer drove in a run & stole two bases
Corban Joseph, 2B: 0 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 E (fielding)
Austin Romine, DH & Rene Rivera, C: both 0 for 4 – Romine K’ed thrice, Rivera once
Marcos Vechionacci, 1B, Damon Sublett, LF, Justin Snyder, 3B & Luis Nunez, SS: all 1 for 4 – Vech drove in a run, scored another & K’ed three times … Sublett drove in a run & committed a fielding error in his first game in the field since coming back from the DL … Nunez doubled
Adam Warren: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HB, 6-2 GB/FB – hasn’t been great in AA, but he’ll get there
Wilkin DeLaRosa: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 1-1 GB/FB – one of the walks was intentional … hopefully he goes for a full body scan soon, because his days on the 40-man roster with MLB caliber medical benefits are going to be coming to an end very soon
Josh Schmidt: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 2-1 GB/FB
