Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Jimmy Robbins of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

 

The 24-yr-old lefty turned in another dominant start. Jimmy threw 53 of his 73 pitches for strikes. Robbins induced 4 ground ball outs and 3 flyball outs. He cruised through the 1st inning, getting outs via a flyout, groundout, and a forceout after allowing a two-out single. Robbins allowed another single in the 2nd inning after getting Omar Meregildo to pop out. He struck out the next two batters to get out of the 2nd inning. Another single in the 3rd after getting Gilbert Lara to ground out. Jimmy got a pop-out and flyout to close out the 3rd.

 

In the 4th inning, Jimmy Robbins retired the first two batters but once again allowed a single before retiring Yasel Antuna to ground out. The 5th inning was Robbins’ first 1-2-3 inning as he struck out the side on a foul tip, called 3rd strike, and swinging strike. In his final inning, Jimmy Robbins allowed a single and a two-out walk but got Meregildo to fly out for the final out.

 

Jimmy Robbins is having an outstanding month in September. In 3 starts, the native of Orlando, FL., owns a 1.69ERA with 14 hits allowed and 3 walks over 16IP for a 1.06WHIP. He has 19 strikeouts and is holding opponents to .233BA.

 

Lopez and Martinez Show

Otto Lopez

The 23-yr-old prospect DH’d and batted leadoff for Buffalo. Otto went hitless in 4 at-bats but still made an impact with a walk and a run scored. In 89 games, Otto Lopez is batting .294 with a .783OPS, 19 doubles, 6 triples, 3HR, 34RBI, 53 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases.
