Eddie's Farm Employees of the Month

Round Rock

Position Players: Jason Bourgeois! Bourgeois hit .328 for Round Rock in 18 games, striking out just 11 times and walking ten times, and stealing eleven bases (caught twice). Slash line of .328/.416/.448.

Pitchers: Andy Van Hekken! Van Hekken started four games, and went 1-1 with a 1.66 ERA/1.01 WHIP, with a 23K:4BB ratio, .225 against, and no homers allowed.

Corpus

PP: I thought really hard about giving it to Marcos Cabral, who posted a .378/.440/.511 line, with 3K:5BB in 45 ABs. However, he played in eight less games than Koby Clemens, who tentatively gets this award. In 80ABs, Clemens hit .263/.333/.575 with 7HR, 4 2B, and 18RBI. The reason this is tentative is because of the 28Ks in 84ABs. Get that crap under control. But w/RISP, Clemens is 8x20 with 5XBH.

Pitchers: Henry Villar was deserving, what with his 0.66 ERA/0.73 WHIP in eight relief appearances, but it has to go to Jordan Lyles. In four starts, Lyles threw 22IP, allowing 18H/6ER, 25K:4BB for a 2.45 ERA/1.00 WHIP.

Lancaster

PP: This wasn't even hard. Albert Cartwright. Hit .333/.377/.542 in 20 games in April with 10XBH and 5SBs. His .918 OPS was the only one above .800.

Pitchers: This almost went to Kyle Greenwalt, who had performed the best amongst the JetHawk starters, but I had to give it to reliever David Berner. His seven appearances resulted in three saves, but he also posted a 1.20 ERA / 0.80 WHIP, allowing 11 hits and one walk, with 16 strikeouts. That's right, 16K:1BB.

Lexington

PP: This was a tough one, but due to having more ABs to perform, J.D. Martinez edges out Kody Hinze. Martinez hit .365/.419/.521 with 10XBH and 19RBI, striking out 14 times in 96ABs.

Pitchers: Tanner Bushue! In five starts, Bushue threw 25.2IP, allowed 23H/8ER for a 2.81 ERA/1.32 WHIP. He struck out 26, and walked 11 - eight of them with runners already on (so that's going to have to get worked out), but overall, an excellent showing.
