Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Amell Brazoban of the Dunedin Blue Jays.

 

The 20-yr-old out of Santo Domingo, DR., played in his 21st game with Dunedin. He failed to hit much in April (.179BA) and May (.176BA) but he’s showing signs of life in the past few games. Brazoban played RF and batted 7th. He went 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI, and two strikeouts.

 

Amell struck out in the 2nd and 9th innings. In the 5th, Brazoban hit a lead-off single to CF. Leading off the 7th, Amell Brazoban homered to left CF.

 

The 6-foot-2 outfielder has hit safely in 3 of his last 4 games and he has a 4-game on-base streak. As a member of the FCL Blue Jays in 2021, Brazoban finished with a .317BA with 11 doubles, 3 triples, 2 home runs, 20RBI, and 8 stolen bases. Unfortunately, his bat hasn’t made the transition to the next level, batting .203 with 3 doubles, a home run, and 6RBI.

 

The Moreno and Martinez Show

 

Gabriel Moreno

The 22-yr-old catching prospect was behind the plate and batted 3rd for the Bisons. He picked up a single in four at-bats. Over the past two weeks (8GP), Moreno has gone 13-for-31 for a .345BA with 2BB and 3K for a .406OBP including a double, a home run, and 3RBI. In 32 games, Moreno is batting .328 with 8 doubles, a home run, 22RBI, and a .801OPS.

 

Orelvis Martinez

The 20-yr-old played SS and batted 3rd for the Fisher Cats. Martinez had his first multi-hit game since May 13th, going  2-for-5 with a run scored, two doubles, two RBI, and two strikeouts. Over the past two weeks (12GP), Martinez batted .213 with 6 runs scored, 3 doubles, 3HR, and 12RBI. In 41 games, O is batting .226 with 14HR, 35RBI, 2SB, and a .836OPS.
