Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Sunday, 4-21: Donald Lutz, Pensacola. Credentials are compromised a bit when the affiliates go winless on the day. Lutz, 2-4 with a HR, gets the nod because the homer was his fifth of the season, tying him for the Southern League lead (with 13 fewer at-bats than the other guy).
Also lightly notable . . .
Chris Berset, Bakersfield: 2-5, HR, 2B
Jesse Winker, Dayton: 1-2, HR, 2 BB
Michael Gilmartin, Bakersfield: 2-4, two 2B
Yohan Pino, Louisville: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3K
Mark Prior, Louisville: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K
