 (West Virginia Black Bears)

Warwick Saupold (Detroit Tigers, MLB)

Appearing in just one game this past week, Wazza gave up a solo home run in an inning of work against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday. After pitching to an 8.18 ERA in June, Saupold will hope this most recent performance isn't a sign of things to come. 

Peter Moylan (Atlanta Braves, MLB)

A forearm strain has landed Moylan on the 10-day Disabled List with a return date yet to be confirmed. The 39-year-old did appear in two games this week before the injury, however, giving up a solo home run in 0.2 innings across two outings.

Mychal Givens (Baltimore Orioles, MLB)

Givens must be relieved June is over. The 28-year-old was tagged with five losses in 14 games over the last month, including his last two as his ERA has risen from 3.77 to 4.81. Hopefully, July will bring happier days for the infielder-turned-reliever.

Liam Hendriks (Nashville Sounds, AAA)

After clearing waivers, Hendriks will play for AAA Nashville Sounds. The 29-year-old owned a 7.36 ERA in the big leagues this season before being waived by the Oakland Athletics.

Mike Ohlman (Pawtucket Red Sox, AAA)

A two-home run night on Saturday stands out as the highlight of Ohlman's week - the former Heat catcher going 3-13 at the plate whilst driving in five.

Joey Wong (Binghamton Rumble Ponies, AA)

Since returning to AA, Wong has found life difficult, going 1-14 this past week to drop his average down to .197. That one hit was a home run - his third of the campaign.

Mike Brosseau (Montgomery Biscuits, AA)

Speaking of home runs, Brosseau definitely knows how to clear the fence, mashing two long balls this past week to bring his season tally up to seven. One of the home runs was even a grand slam.

Zac Law (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

It's not every day you hit two triples in the same game. But that's exactly what Law did this past week as he went 4-15 with three RBIs to lift his season average to .244.

Jake Fraley (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

Fraley is swinging a hot bat currently, with the 23-year-old in the midst of a 7-21 stretch with two doubles and a triple. Although he is hitting .306, we haven't seen the best of the Rays prospect's running game, with the Helms Award winner swiping just two of nine bags.

Ulrich Bojarski (Connecticut Tigers, A)

Strikeouts continue to be a problem for Bojarski in 2018, with the 19-year-old being fanned 20 times in his past 10 games. The outfielder is starting to see the ball better though, riding a four-game hitting streak during a 5-16 run.

Robbie Glendinning (West Virginia Black Bears, A)

Over the past week, Glendinning is 5-21 with a double and two RBIs to lift his batting average to .218 through sixteen games.

Jess Williams & Alex Hall (AZL Brewers, Rookie)

Both Williams and Hall are making the most of a strong start to their minor league careers. In the last week, Williams is 6-23 with a double and a triple in six games, while Hall is 2-12 in three games. Williams is now hitting .341 while Hall is hitting .269.

Jake Turnbull (Billings Mustang, Pioneer League)

Turnbull notched his first RBI of the season this past week during a 4-21 stretch. The 20-year-old infielder is hitting .212 on the season through sixteen games.

Jake Baker (Gulf Coast Tigers, Gulf Coast League)

After a tough outing last time out, Baker battled back this week, striking out three batters in 2.2 scoreless innings where he only gave up one hit. The 20-year-old has now struck out eight batters in three games.

 

INDEPENDENT BALL:

Alex Boshers (Winnipeg Goldeyes)

In a strong bounce-back start, Boshers threw six innings, giving up two runs whilst striking out five batters against St Paul this week. His ERA has dipped to 5.30.

Dylan Thompson (Sioux Falls Canaries)

Another week, another strong outing for Thompson who now has pitched six quality starts in a row for the Canaries and owns a 3.81 ERA through nine games.

Mike Hart (Sioux Falls Canaries)

Hart broke out of a 0-13 streak, going 2-4 with an RBI in a 14-1 win over Kansas City on Tuesday.

Joe Van Meter (York Revolution)

It was a tough week for Van Meter who gave up 10 earned runs in seven innings across three outings. The 29-year-old has moved back to the bullpen over his last two games but has seen his ERA rise to 5.18.

Kyle Simon (New Britain Bees)

Simon recorded his fourth win of the season this past week, pitching six innings, giving up just two unearned runs on four hits. The 198cm pitcher now owns a 3.44 ERA to go along with his 4-4 record.

EUROPE:

Sam Kennelly (Twins Honkbal, Netherlands)

The Twins took two out of three games against the Hoofddorp Pioneers, while Kennelly went 2-9 at the plate with an RBI. The 22-year-old is now hitting .250 through 30 games.
