Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Irv Carter of the FCL Blue Jays.

 

Irv was selected by the Blue Jays in the 5th round of the 2021 Draft. The righty struggled in June and July, posting a 0-3 record and sporting an ugly 8.37ERA and 1.86WHIP. The 6-foot-4 Freehold, NJ native has looked much better in August.

 

Labeled as a bulldog on the mound, Irv is a max effort guy on the mound, both with his delivery and his level of compete. In his last start, Carter pitched 5 scoreless innings, walking one batter, striking out 5, and holding the opposition to one hit.

 

He one-upped that outing on Tuesday, pitching 5 scoreless with 6 strikeouts, no walks, one hit, and finally picked up his first professional W. Irv entered the game in the 2nd inning and struck out the first batter. The next batter singled but was erased on a strike ’em throw ’em out double play. He retired the next 12 batters, finishing with one groundball out and 5 flyball outs.

In his last two outs, Irv Carter owns a 0.00ERA with one walk and 11K. In 9 games, Irv Carter owns a 1-3 record with a 5.88ERA and 42K. Over 33.2IP, Carter has allowed 36 hits and 11 walks for a 1.40WHIP.

 

The Moreno and Martinez Show

Gabriel Moreno 

Moreno was not in the lineup again on Tuesday. 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

The Blue Jays’ top infield prospect, played SS and batted 4th for the Fisher Cats. He went 2-for-4 with a run scored, a 3-run double (thrown out trying for a triple), a solo home run, 4RBI, and 2K.  In his last 11 games, Martinez is batting .244 with 4 runs scored, 11RBI, 3 doubles, and 3HR. In 89 games, O is batting .218 with 25HR, 15 doubles, 64RBI, 6SB, and a .775OPS.
