A look back at the time period of 4/11/13 through 4/17/13). A few quick points: First, Who the heck is Jose Mojica. Second, Anthony Hewitt appears on the hot list again to keep his hot start going.

Greene’s 2012 was slightly disappointing because his raw power did not show up in games but he did more than hold his own in Williamsport showing good patience at the plate albeit with a high strikeout rate as well. If he is going to succeed he is going to have to prove that he does not have a slow bat, and that he can identify his pitches to drive.
