Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Otto Lopez of the Buffalo Bisons.

 

Lopez played LF, batting leadoff for the Herd on Wednesday. He reached on a double in the 1st inning, scoring on a Jordan Groshans one-out double, 1-0. Otto double again in the 3rd but Cullen Large struck out with the bases loaded to end the threat. In the 5th, Otto drew a 4-pitch walk to lead off the frame and stole 2nd but was left stranded. Following a leadoff home run by Eric Stamets in the 7th inning, Lopez singled to right but was caught attempting to steal 2nd. He grounded out in 9th to end his day.

 

Lopez finished 3-for-4 with a run scored, two doubles, a stolen base, a caught stealing, and a walk. After starting the season on the IL, Otto has struggled to really get it going at the plate. He did get some time with Toronto recently which may have re-ignited the 5-foot-10 utility player. In two games since being returned to Buffalo, Otto Lopez has 4 hits in 8 at-bats with three doubles, an RBI, two walks, two strikeouts, and a stolen base.

 

For the season, Otto Lopez owns a .244BA, 7 doubles, 3 triples, a home run, 15RBI, and 5 stolen bases in 8 attempts.

 

The Groshans and Martinez Show

Jordan Groshans

The 22-yr-old infielder played SS, batting 3rd for the Buffalo Bisons. Jordan went 1-for-3 with a double, two runs batted in, and two walks. Over the past two weeks (12GP), Groshans has gone 11-for-46 for a .239 BA with 2 doubles, 6BB, 12K, and 4RBI. In 46 games, Jordan is batting .277 with 6 doubles, a home run, 19RBI, and a .714OPS.

 

Orelvis Martinez

The 20-yr-old infield prospect played SS, batting 3rd for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Orelvis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and three strikeouts. Over the past two weeks (12GP), Martinez batted .205 with 4 runs scored, 1 double, 2HR, 7RBI, and a SB. In 62 games, O is batting .219 with 17HR, 45RBI, 5SB, and a .779OPS.
