Who’s hot :

Cam Perkins has been one of the hottest bats over the past ten games posting a .350 average with 4 home runs and 11 runs batted in. Perkins had 14 hits in 40 at bats during that stretch including two three hit games.

Brock Stassi continues his excellent season as he posted a .366 average over the last ten games going 15 for 41 with 1 home run and 8 runs batted in. His overall average of .335 and 43 runs batted are both league leaders in the Eastern League. ( tied with Gavin Cecchini of Binghamton for Average)

Of big Sir Arthur’s 37 hits this season 16 have been against Erie.

Aaron Nola’s 7 wins ties for tops in the league and his 1.76 ERA is third best

  1. Cam Perkins now hitting with power 7 hr if he can get his over 300 and still hit with power . LVH then Mlb.

  2. I hope “Quinny” can learn to be a better judge of the strike zone. As a proposed lead-off guy, his main purpose is to get on base. That requires a hitter to not swing at balls out of the K zone–he seems to K too often. So far, given his 1 1/2 seasons delay to his play, he’s done well in every other aspect of his game: some gap power, some HR power, improving center fielding plus a good arm, and, of course, speed on the bases. Coaching must emphasize this lacking area.

    He has the remainder of this season to improve. If he does improve in those areas needing attention, he could become a great asset to the big club in CF and leading off to turn walks and singles into 2 BHs. There’s also a chance he could rise to AAA LV by late August or Sept.

  3. I heard Wathan say they worked with Cam on using more of a leg kick when he hits. I guess it seems to be working.

  4. Jp craw not even hitting that great yet his ops is almost .800, talk about I guy that knows what he is doing at the plate.
