Stats are from the time period of 8/3 thru 8/9. Minimum of 11 AB’s.
Quick Points before we look at the bottom line: Is there any legitimate reason that Darin Ruf is not in Lehigh Valley at this point? I can’t think of one.
–D’Arby Myers performance of late in Reading is notable. He is sitting at around .290 after close to 100 AB’s. Doesnt make up for several poor years, but just sayin.
–Troubling names on the “Not Hot” hitters list include Sebastian Valle, who has struggled early in his AAA transtion…Mitch Walding who has not hit at all as of late…..and Dylan Couzens who has been struggling as well.
–Ethan Martin has shown in his first two starts why the Phils wanted him, while Hoby Milner has looked very good in Lakewood over his last several starts.
–A rough outing for Jesse Biddle as his IP start to reach last years proportions.
–Julio Rodriguez seems to finally have plummetted to the land of medicority that many expected of him long ago.
–Perci Garner and Brody Colvin did what has been expected plus after battling most of the year.
