Highlights:

The Pigs went 3-4 this week. Kingery is on a tear as of late, boosting his average back above .300 with five home runs. Hoskins is steady as ever, and check out how similar his discipline numbers are to Crawford. Alfaro, slightly worse. It’ll take time to develop that part of his game.

READING

Highlights:

Two wins for Reading on the week as their second-half slide continues (they’re now 14.5 in back of Trenton for first place in the Eastern Division). Tromp has quietly had a nice year, slugging 13 home runs and 22 doubles at age 23. Taveras pitched well his last time out against Altoona, striking out nine. Things are a little different for Alberto Tirado, who in 10 relief innings with Reading has already walked 13.

CLEARWATER

Highlights:

Four straight losses for Clearwater, then four straight wins. Ranger Suarez struggled in his last outing, while JoJo Romero gave up 12 hits and five runs to Bradenton before rebounding against Fort Myers. Kilome was relatively sharp against Daytona. Randolph’s discipline stats are pretty solid.

LAKEWOOD

Highlights:

A tough week for the BlueClaws (who played as the BruceClaws on Saturday to honor Bruce Springsteen) with just two wins, both by 2-0. Sanchez pitched a scoreless five last Sunday, and this Sunday (not indicated in these numbers) went a scoreless six, striking out five.

WILLIAMSPORT

Highlights:

Also a tough week for Williamsport, who also won just two games. Young is having a great start to his 2017, while Ortiz is straight mashing. He now has seven home runs on the young season.
