Matt Rizzotti–Continued swinging a hot bat, going 2-5 on Thursday and 1-2 with 2 walks on Friday. Rizzotti is now at .379/.526/.369 in 29 Fall League at bats, with 7 walks and 3 strikeouts. The only complaint is that all 11 of Rizzotti’s hits, most out of the cleanup spot have been singles. That being said, .379 is .379.
Tim Kennelly–Started in LF on Saturday and had a big day, going 2-4 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored. .389/.421/.556 in 18 Fall League AB’s with 2 RBI’s.
Brian Rosenberg–The struggles continue for Rosenberg who was pounded and took the loss in an inning of work on Thursday. he gave up 4 runs on 3 hits, while walking one and striking out one. All three hits were home runs. Rosenberg threw 30 pitches, just 13 for strikes. Rosenberg is now 0-1 with a 9.45 ERA in his 5 AFL appearances. He has allowed 11 hits in 6.2 innings of work, and his health that he struggled with during almost all of the 2010 campaign remains a question mark based on his performance.
Tyson Brummett– threw a scoreless inning on Thursday, although he allowed both a hit and a walk, throwing 22 pitches, 13 for strikes. In 6 games, Brummett is 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA in the Fall League, having thrown 10 innings. He has allowed 11 hits, walked one and struck out 9.

Justin DeFratus–Last but certainly not least is DeFratus who continues to be lights out in the Fall League, striking out the side again on Saturday in his scoreless inning of work. He did allow a hit, throwing 15 pitches, 12 for strikes. DeFratus has thrown 4 innings and allowed 2 hits and a walk (no runs), while striking out 8..
