Top Performers

 

Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Francisco Fajardo.

 

Francisco is a 21-yr-old IFA out of San Pedro de Marcoris, DR. He spent 2021 playing with the DSL Blue Jays. He dominated in 51 games, putting up 7 doubles, 4 triples, and a home run. He scored 42 runs while driving in 15. Fajardo walked 19 times and struck out 12. He is speedy, swiping 30 bases in 37 attempts. Overall, Francisco Fajardo finished slashing .365/.445/.473.

 

His 2022 season didn’t start until May 3rd but he is showing that 2022 wasn’t a one-off and there might be something here worth paying attention to. Playing 2nd base for the 5th time this year, Fajardo batted 9th for the Dunedin Blue Jays. He singled to center in the 2nd inning, driving in Adriel Sotolongo, 1-2. Leading off the 7th inning, FF legged out an infield single. He finished 2-for-4 with an RBI.

 

In 8 games, the intriguing infielder owns a .308/.357/.577 slash with a double and two home runs. He hasn’t shown the plate discipline he showed off in 2021 yet, walking twice and striking out 8 times. The speed hasn’t shown up yet either, no stolen bases. None the less, definitely something to watch as the season unfolds.

 

The Moreno and Martinez Show

 

Gabriel Moreno

The 22-yr-old prospect and the Buffalo Bisons were rained out. He finished 4-for-5 with a run scored, two runs batted in, two doubles, and a stolen base. Over the past two weeks (10GP), Moreno has gone 16-for-42 for a .381BA with 4BB and 7K for a .435OBP. He’s also collected three doubles and driven in 9RBI. In 23 games, Moreno is batting .323 with 7 doubles, no home runs, 19RBI, and a .774OPS.

 

Orelvis Martinez

The 20-yr-old and the Fisher Cats were rained out. Orelvis went 1-for-4 with a run scored, 3RBI, two walks, three strikeouts, and an Eastern League leading 11th home run. Over the past two weeks (11GP), Martinez has a .282 batting average, 7 runs scored, a double, 5HR, and 12RBI. In 27 games, O is batting .231 with 11HR, 24RBI, 2SB, and a .877OPS.
