Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Thursday, June 6: Juan Perez, Bakersfield . . . 2-3, HR, 2B, BB, 2 R. The left-handed-hitting shortstop, leading off, paced the Blaze to a 5-2 victory.
Also notable . . .
Emmanuel Burriss: 4-4, 2B, SB, R, RBI.
Theo Bowe: 2-3, HR, SB, 2 R, 2 RBI.
Carlos Contreras: 5 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 1 K.
Josh Smith: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 4 K. Smith sports a 2.15 ERA in his last 10 games for Pensacola.
Ray Chang: 2-3, BB, 2 RBI.
Lee Hyde: scoreless 2-inning save in the second game of the Wahoos' sweep.
Jesse Winker: 2-3, 3B, BB. His .950 OPS ranks second in the Midwest League.
Luis Gonzalez: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K. I actually liked this guy three years ago as a 17-year-old lefty in the Venezuelan League. But he didn't play last year. Now he seems to be back on track with the DSL Reds.
Jose Salas: In his first professional appearance, the 18-year-old righty put up 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 4 K for the DSL Rojos.
Urgent edit: How could I have missed this? Corky Miller . . . 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K. They're obviously trying to stretch him out . . .
