Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Monday, 4-15: Carlos Contreras, Bakersfield. Contreras gets the nod for the second straight start; and the two of them were strikingly similar. Last night, in the Blaze's 5-1 victory, their second of the season: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 K. Last Wednesday: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. The difference was that this time he got good relief.
Daniel Renken, Pensacola, was also worthy of a second selection: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 K. His ERA sits at 0.71.
And Yorman Rodriguez had a nice, ballpark-aided night for Bakersfield, with a HR and 2B.
