Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to LJ Talley of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

 

A former 2019 Draftee, LJ was selected by the Blue Jays in the 7th round. He started the year with the Vancouver Canadians. Talley joined the Fisher Cats on May 15th, seeing a lot of time at 1st base which is where he played on Wednesday and batted 4th.

 

LJ struck out in the 2nd. He doubled to lead off the 4th inning and scored off a Tanner Kirwer ground out. The Folkston, GA native doubled in the 6th, setting up Vinny Capra who pulled New Hampshire to win one run of Binghamton with an RBI single. Tanner Kirwer and Rodrigo Vigil struck out, stranding LJ at 3rd. LJ Talley walked in his final at-bat but Capra grounded into a double play, erasing LJ at 2nd base.

 

Since joining the Fisher Cats, the 24-yr-old owns a .246BA and .664OPS while collecting 11 doubles, 4HR, and a pair of doubles. In 39 games, Talley has 19 walks with 28 strikeouts.

 

The Groshans and Martin Show

 

Jordan Groshans was at SS and batted 4th. Jordan went 0-for-1 with a walk and strikeout but was replaced in the field after the top half of the 4th. Groshan owns a .254BA with a .745OPS, 8 doubles, 5HR, and 23RBI.

 

Austin Martin started at SS and led off for the Fisher Cats. Martin struck out, grounded into a double play which scored the Fisher Cats first run of the game, grounded out, singled and stole 2nd base in the 7th.  Austin Martin is batting .268 with a .771OPS, and 5SB.
