Warwick Saupold (Detroit Tigers, MLB)

In three games this week, Wazza gave up a run in 2.2 innings whilst striking out two batters. Although his ERA in June is still a high 8.18, Saupold pitched his first scoreless outing in two weeks on Sunday before backing it up with another 0.2 scoreless frames on Tuesday. 

Peter Moylan (Atlanta Braves, MLB)

Moylan's week got off to the worst possible start, giving up three runs in the 15th inning against the Baltimore Orioles to be tagged with the loss. For all those stats lovers out there, the loss was Moylan's first in 208 MLB games - stretching back almost seven years.

Mychal Givens (Baltimore Orioles, MLB)

After surrendering two runs in two innings during his first appearance of the week, Givens bounced back with 2.2 scoreless frames to lower his season ERA to 3.92.

Liam Hendriks (Oakland Athletics, MLB)

Hendriks' stint in Oakland looks to be all but over after the 29-year-old was designated for assignment on Monday. The A's now have 10 days to either trade or release the former Wanneroo Giant who has been with the side since 2015. He had a 7.36 ERA in 13 games this season and spent almost two months on the disabled list with a hip injury.

Mike Ohlman (Pawtucket Red Sox, AAA)

Another week, another home run for Ohlman, as he connected on his eighth long ball of the season during a 4-1 win over Buffalo on Thursday. The catcher hasn't had too much more to smile about this week, however, with a 2-12 week dipping his average to .234.

Joey Wong (Binghamton Rumble Ponies, AA)

In his first full week back in AA, Wong went 2-14. The 30-year-old shortstop is now hitting .226 in 24 games for the Rumble Ponies.

Mike Brosseau (Montgomery Biscuits, AA)

Currently riding a seven-game hitting streak, Brosseau is playing his most consistent baseball of the season. The 24-year-old is in the midst of a 7-22 stretch and hit his first home run since May 7 on Tuesday.

Zac Law (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

Law has raised his batting average nine points to .231 in the past week, going 3-11 with an RBI. 

Jake Fraley (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

After a rough 1-15 week, Fraley responded perfectly, going 6-14 with three doubles and four walks to increase his batting average to .300 and OBP to .379.

Ulrich Bojarski (West Michigan Whitecaps/Connecticut Tigers, A)

Bojarski has had a tough time of it lately. After being assigned to Class-A short season, Connecticut Tigers from the West Michigan Whitecaps, the 19-year-old is 1-18 to the tune of a .056 batting average. Before being assigned to Connecticut, Bojarski was hitting .222 with a home run and five RBIs in 10 games.

Robbie Glendinning (West Virginia Black Bears, A)

After a strong first week for the Black Bears, Glendinning went 2-16 with two walks over his last five games. The 22-year-old is hitting .206 and has seen time at shortstop and second base.

Jess Williams & Alex Hall (AZL Brewers, Rookie)

Our Brewers duo have had quite the first week in Rookie Ball. Through six games, Williams is hitting .429 with three doubles, a triple and seven RBIs. Hall is hitting .357 with a home run and three RBIs in three games. 

Jake Turnbull (Billings Mustang, Pioneer League)

Through the first nine games of the Rookie Ball season, Turnbull has mustered a .226 batting average with four doubles.

Jake Baker (Gulf Coast Tigers, Gulf Coast League)

After striking out three batters in 1.1 scoreless frames to start the season, Baker gave up three runs in an inning in his second outing. The 20-year-old has walked five batters in 2.1 innings. 

INDEPENDENT BALL:

Alex Boshers (Winnipeg Goldeyes)

In his return to Wichita, Boshers gave up nine earned runs on 12 hits in 2.2 innings. The 27-year-old now owns a 5.59 ERA through nine games. 

Dylan Thompson (Sioux Falls Canaries)

Despite being tagged with his third loss of the season, Thompson pitched a Quality Start, going six innings, surrendering two earned runs with three strikeouts to drop his season ERA to 4.33.

Mike Hart (Sioux Falls Canaries)

Hart failed to record a hit this week, going 0-11 to lower his season average to .254.

Joe Van Meter (York Revolution)

In his fifth start of the season, Van Meter gave up five runs in 3.2 innings to be tagged with his second loss of the campaign. His ERA now sits at 3.64.

Kyle Simon (New Britain Bees)

In two starts this week, Simon threw 11.1 innings, striking out six batters whilst giving up just two runs. The 27-year-old now owns a 3.79 ERA through 10 starts.
