Justin Kelly picked up win number 7, allowing one run over 1.1IP. Connor Cooke earned his 2nd save with Vancouver, throwing 1.2 scoreless innings and striking out 3.

Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to some recent Transations.

 

Rafael Lantigua

The 24-yr-old was promoted to Triple-A. He batted a healthy .271 with 4 doubles and 5HR in 21 games in July. He went hitless on August 5th, snapping a 9-game hit streak. In 86 games at AA, Raffy batted .268 with a .345OBP and .402SLG, collecting 27 doubles, a triple, and 5HR. In his first game with Buffalo (1st since playing 2 games to begin the season), Lantigua went 1-for-2 with a double.

 

Trent Palmer

Out since July 4th, Trent Palmer is done for the season. His status changed from 7-day IL to Injured-Full Season. No news on the seriousness of the injury. Hopefully, Trent is okay and will have a speedy recovery.

 

Gabriel Martinez

On the major bright spots for the Blue Jays player development department, the 20-yr-old outfielder was promoted to Advanced-A. Martinez was placed on the IL on June 1st and returned July 6th. In July, Martinez continued to hit the ball well, batting .290 with 5 doubles and a HR in 18 games. In his first game with Vancouver, Martinez hit a home run and struck out in 3 at-bats.

 

Rainer Nunez

The 21-yr-old 1st baseman joined Martinez in moving up a level on July 6th. July was actually one of Rainer’s least productive months in 2022. Rainer batted just .278 with 6 doubles, a home run, and 9RBI but his full body of work warranted a promotion a few weeks prior. In 93 games, Nunez has hit 19 doubles and 15 home runs with a .299BA. Rainer went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a strikeout in his first game with the C’s

 

Debuts: Dylan Rock, T.J. Brock, and Peyton Williams.

 

The 23-yr-old Dylan Rock made his debut with Dunedin on the 6th. In two games, the 8th round pick is 3-for-7 with two runs scored, a triple, one RBI, a walk, and 3K.

 

RHP T.J. Brock was selected in the 6th round. The threw a clean inning in his debut, striking out a pair.

 

The 21-yr-old 7th rounder debuted on the 6th. In two games, Williams went 1-for-4 with a single and 3 walks.

 

The Moreno and Martinez Show

Gabriel Moreno 

Moreno and Bisons were rained out. In his last 10 games,  Moreno is batting .200 with 5 runs scored, a HR, 4RBI, and 2SB. In 49 games played, Gabriel owns a .299 batting average with 11 doubles, 2 home runs, 29RBI, 6SB, and a .772OPS.

 

Orelvis Martinez

No Martinez today. In his last 12 games, Martinez is batting .311 with 8 runs scored, 12RBI, 2 doubles, and 5HR. In 88 games, O is batting .214 with 24HR, 14 doubles, 60RBI, 6SB, and a .761OPS.
