Paul Hoover, 34, 130 AB’s; .215/.297/.315; 2 HR 11 RBI; .174 vs. RH, .224 vs. LH; .216 with RISP; 9% bb rate, 24% k rate; .178 in June. 38 games, 5 errors, 5 passed balls. thrown out 16/50 runners (32%).

John Suomi, 29, 91 AB’s between CW, REA, and LV. .275/.316/.462; 4 HR 15 RBI. 21 games at C, 5 errors, 1 passed ball. Has thrown out 2/30 (7%). Suomi’s defense is bad at best.  He has little to no arm behind the plate, although can hit a bit.
