Player of the Day
Saturday, August 24th POD goes to the Orelvis Martinez
Man, this 17-yr-old out of Santo Domingo, D.R. is having a week. Martinez played both ends of the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays doubleheader. He played SS in GM1 and DH in GM2 batting 3rd in both games.
Martinez hit a 6th inning 2-run home run over the LF wall. The homer broke a 2-2 tie and proved to be the winning blow. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk.
Orelvis was at it again in the 6th inning with a solo HR to LF. This long fly pulled the GCL Blue Jays to within one, 4-3. The young man finished 1-for-3 with two walks.
After posting a .196BA with three triples, 4RBI, and 3/14 BB/K in 17 July games, Martinez owns a .288BA with 6 doubles, a triple, 5HR, 18RBI, and 7/12 BB/K in 17 August games. His strong month has pushed his BA up to .270.
The Kevin Smith and Griffin Conine Show
Kevin Smith went 1-for-4. He scored a run and struck out twice. The 23-yr-old is batting .261 with 10 doubles, 12HR, 35RBI in 50 second-half games. Much better than the .175 with 11 doubles, 2 triples, 7HR, 25RBI in 59 first-half games.
Griffin Conine went 1-for-3 with a run scored, a walk, and two strikeouts. The 22-yr-old is riding a mini 6-game on-base streak with hits in his last 4 games. He is batting .279 with a .359OBP and a league-leading 20HR. Over his last 10 games, Conine is batting just .235 with one HR, 7 BB, and 14K.
