It wasn't the best of weeks, we went 2-5, so you can expect a bunch of down arrows. Our bullpen, that was so good last week, let us down this week.
Just the one start this week but he went 7 inings and only allowed the one run. Unfortunately it was lost by the bullpen.
Had the one start. It wasn't terrible, 6 innings and 3 runs, 3 walks and he took the loss. He gave up 8 hits but not many of them were of the 'hit hard' variety. I think it was a small step forward for him.
On to the DL, he was sent to see the doctor but not Dr. Doom, so I'm hoping the news won't be too bad.
2 starts, one that was very good (7 shutout innings), but the bullpen lost if for him and one that was just terrible, 3 innings, 5 runs and he was lucky that it was only 5 runs. Added together he had a 4.50 ERA for the week. He can set a major league record his next start.
2 starts. The one against the Astros didn't go well, 6 innings, 9 hits and 4 earned, but the team won. Then, Thursday, he goes 7, allows just 4 hits and 1 earned but the team lost. All in he had a 3.46 ERA for the week, which is an improvement over how things have been going for the guy this season. So a half hearted up arrow.
Carlos Villanueva Juan Rivera
Pitched 3 times this week, didn't allow a run, giving up 2 hits, and 1 walk in his 2.2 innings. A good week.
Farrell only used him once this week and he got the 2 batters out he faced. The way he has pitched, he's going to have to get used to facing 2 batters a week.
3 games, he gave up his first run in a month, but it wasn't really his fault, Yunel booted the double play ball. Had they turned the DP, the run wouldn't have scored, but it goes as an earned run because you can't assume a DP. He faced 12 batters and gave up 2 hits and a walk. Can't get all that much better.
In 3 games he faced 8 batters and got 7 of them out. You can't ask for much more. When we were signing all the RH relievers we could find, this off-season, I felt that Janssen was at least as good as any of them. He is showing it.
Got into 4 games and allowed runs in three of them and he blew a save. Opponents hit .357 against him.
It was a bad week for Scrabble, he took the loss Thursday, not that it was his fault. 2 runs scored against him, neither earned, he struck out 3 batters in his inning of work, but there were 2 errors behind him. His other 2 appearances of the week weren't great.
He made his first start for us and we couldn't have asked for more. 5 innings of 2 hit ball, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. He got us one of our two wins on the week. He bought himself at least 1 more start and likely more beyond that.
Got into 3 games and took 2 losses. The down arrow isn't big enough for him. Batters pounded him for a .500/.538/.833 rate in the 3 games. It would be hard to imagine a pitcher having a worse week. Of course, the 2 losses were in both in the second of back-to-back games. The other game he struck out 2 batters in his inning. You think maybe he shouldn't pitch in back to back games?
Got called up to the majors so that's worth an up arrow all by itself. Add in that he got two big outs in our win against the Yankees and he ate 4 innings in Jo-Jo's terrible start against the Yankees, I think we can say it was a good week for him.
He started 5 of the 7 games and pinch hit in another one. He had at least 1 hit in 4 of the 5 starts, had a home run and 2 doubles and drove in 6 runs. He was .300/.333/..550 for the week. You can't complain about that.
Might be back early next week. Hurry Adam
Not a bad week with the bat for Aaron, he hit .296/.345/.407. He only drove in 1 run but I ame happy with small steps forward.
.He had a great week, .308/..333/..692. 2 homers, a triple, 2 doubles. He did make the one error but when you are hitting like that, I'll allow an error.
Terrible week, .167/.167/.167 in the four games he got into. He had an error too.
.250/.300/.357. He was caught stealing once, now he is 7 out of 12 on stolen base attempts. He has to stop trying to steal in front of Jose. I don't suppose, when Lind comes back, that we could let Thames play left some?
Not a terrible week with the bat, .286/.310/.357, but not what we'd like to see. Stole 1, was caught once. Scored just 1 run. He's not really causing the havoc on the base paths that we were hoping he would. I do like watching him in CF. Can't really give him a down arrow when he hits for the week pretty much what he has done all year.
You know, it wasn't a great week for Jose, at least by his standards. But he did hit 3 home runs and drove in 5. The line was .250/.367/.625, I know for anyone else that would be a big up arrow but for Jose it was just another week.
He played in every game this week and looked ok at first base. I am not impressed by his range there, but is making plays on most of the balls he can get too. Had his first error Thursday. He had a good week with the bat, .346/.393/.500, with a home run. Only 2 RBI's but can't complain too much about the bat.
John, I love you, but you didn't have a good week. He played less this week than the week before, which is good, he shouldn't be an everyday player. That was one huge error Thursday. As Wilner said he forgot that Rios doesn't run out ground balls. He had time but he rushed the throw anyway. With all the EE jokes, Mac is the first to throw a ball into the seats from third base. With the bat he was 0 for the week.
Another that was 0 for the week. 10 at bats, 0 hits, 4 strikeouts, 0 walks. 1 RBI though, lets cheer the small victories. Add in that he isn't very good with the glove and you have a player that I really don't want on the team.
Played in 2 games this week. One that was good: 2 for 3, 2 runs, 1 RBI. One that wasn't: 0 for 3, walk, 2 strikeouts and a throwing error. Now that JP has shown he can catch pitches thrown by Brandon Morrow I'm not sure how much we'll see of Jose behind the plate. Likely 1 game a week.
.263/..300/..368. 6 strikeouts and 1 walk in 19 at bats. So not a great week but wasn't it fun to see how happy he was to get to play in Yankees stadium. In his first 7 MLB games he is hitting .292, not a bad start to a career. I like watching him bat, I'd like to see him get a chance in LF, just to see what he can do.
