Warwick Saupold (Detroit Tigers, MLB)

As much as Wazza (3-1) loved May, we reckon he is absolutely hating June. After pitching to a 1.84 ERA in 14.2 innings last month, Saupold has already given up four earned runs in 3.1 frames to the tune of a 10.80 ERA this month.

His season ERA has risen from 2.16 on May 21 to 3.51, but the 28-year-old will be hoping this is a minor bump in the road.

Peter Moylan (Atlanta Braves, MLB)

Moylan (0-0) has given up a solo home run in 2.1 innings to start June. An encouraging note for the 39-year-old is that batters only hit .233 against him last month, and .125 to start June, compared with the .385 batting average he gave up in the first month of the season.

Mychal Givens (Baltimore Orioles, MLB)

After a solid May where he pitched to a 2.57 ERA, Givens (0-1) gave up two earned runs in an inning of work against the New York Yankees to start June. In fairness, the former Heat infielder then responded with 1.1 scoreless frames just three days later against the New York Mets and will look to lower his uncharacteristically high season ERA of 3.90.

Liam Hendriks (Oakland Athletics, MLB/Nashville Sound, AAA)

In two rehab assessment games with Triple-A Nashville, Hendriks gave up a run in two innings of work across two games. The relief pitcher will now return to Oakland's bullpen and is expected to add to his six MLB season appearances this week.

Mike Ohlman (Pawtucket Red Sox, AAA)

Ohlman responded from an off-week to go 8-21 with a homer, four RBIs and three runs scored this time around to boost his season average to .253. 

Alex Burg (Oklahoma City Dodgers, AAA)

Unfortunately, we have no updates on Burg's injury as he remains sidelined.

Mike Brosseau (Montgomery Biscuits, AA)

After a few days off, Brosseau went 3-18 this past week with a double and two RBIs. The 24-year-old has struggled over his last ten games, hitting just .184 to drop his season average to .225.

Joey Wong (Binghamton Rumble Ponies, AA)

Since snapping a 0-11 streak, the New York Mets prospect went 5-15 this week, hitting his second home run in the process. The 30-year-old shortstop has cemented his place as an everyday player and has found his spot in the leadoff position.

Correlle Prime (Frisco RoughRaiders, AA)

Despite Correlle being in Prime form, going 8-20 this week with three runs scored, he has been released by the RoughRaiders. We will endeavour to find out where the 24-year-old will be plying his trade next.

Zac Law (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

Now in his second week in High A, Law continues to show he belongs - hitting .292 through his first seven games. Despite going 3-15 this past week, the 21-year-old catcher is no doubt gaining valuable experience.

Ulrich Bojarski (West Michigan Whitecaps, A)

With Extended Spring Training coming to an end, Bojarksi has been assigned to Detroit's Class A; side West Michigan Whitecaps. The 19-year-old is expected to make his debut this week after being moved onto the active roster on Tuesday.

 

INDEPENDENT BALL:

Alex Boshers (Winnipeg Goldeyes)

Boshers (0-2) recorded a no-decision, pitching six strong innings - striking out three and giving up just three earned runs. The Heat ace now owns a 4.50 ERA through four games for the Goldeyes.

Dylan Thompson (Sioux Falls Canaries)

After a horror outing last week where he gave up 13 earned runs in just 4.2 innings, Thompson (2-1) was lights-out this time around - conceding just one run in 13 innings over his last two games, including an eight-inning shutout on Monday.

Mike Hart (Sioux Falls Canaries/Lincoln Saltdogs)

Hart picked up his first RBI on the season this week as his strong form at the plate continued. The Rockingham Rams import went 4-10 whilst playing the outfield.

Joe Van Meter (York Revolution)

Van Meter (1-0) made only his second career start, throwing 4.1 innings, giving up two runs in a 3-2 win over Sugar Land. He now owns a 2.63 ERA in nine games.

Kyle Simon (New Britain Bees)

Simon (3-2) picked up his third win of the season on Monday after giving up four earned runs in six innings against Long Island. The 198cm starter was given plenty of run support in a 15-6 win and now owns a 3.75 ERA this season. 

Nick Kennedy (Rockland Boulders)

Kennedy (0-1) earned his first start of the season and picked up a no-decision despite a solid outing. The Wanneroo Giants import is pitching to a 3.71 ERA through nine games and has given up just three runs in his last nine frames.

EUROPE:

Sam Kennelly (Twins Honkbal, Netherlands)

In three games this week, Kennelly went 2-11 with a double as his season average dropped to .247 through 18 games. His Twins side will be looking to improve on their current 8-10 record in the coming weeks.
