Warwick Saupold (Detroit Tigers, MLB) 5 G, 0.00 ERA, 5.2 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1/1 Saves

Saupold sure justified his call-up to the Detroit Tigers as he recorded his first MLB save on Saturday after collecting the final seven outs of a 12-4 win against the Kansas City Royals.

Wazza needed just 18 pitches in his 2.1 innings of hitless ball and should take a lot of momentum from this outing.

Peter Moylan (Atlanta Braves, MLB) 9 G, 0.00 ERA, 5.1 IP, 9 H, 0 ER, 6 BB, 7 K

It's been a fairly quiet week for Moylan so far, as he has only appeared in one extra game since our last recap.

In that outing against the New York Mets, the 39-year-old threw a scoreless inning whilst surrendering two hits.

Mychal Givens (Baltimore Orioles, MLB) 9 G, 5.91 ERA, 10.2 IP, 9 H, 7 ER, 8 BB, 14 K, 0/1 Saves

Like Moylan, Givens has also appeared in just one game this week - pitching a scoreless inning against the Cleveland Indians.

It wasn't all plain-sailing for Givens, however, as he walked two batters before striking out two to get out of a jam.

Mike Ohlman (Pawtucket Red Sox, AAA) 5 G, 5-19 (.263 BA), 4 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB

As a backup catcher, you have to make every at-bat count as you fight for game-time. This was clearly what was going through Ohlman's head on Sunday as he went 2-5 with three RBIs, a double and a home run in his best outing of the season to date. The former Heater will be hoping this performance leads to more time behind the dish.

Alex Burg (Oklahoma City Dodgers, AAA) 4 G, 2-10 (.200 BA), 3 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI

Through four games of the AAA season, Burg has yet to get going offensively. The 2011/12 Heater is hitting .200 with a home run to start the year and will hope for more production in the coming months.

Mike Brosseau (Montgomery Biscuits, AA) 14 G, 12-49 (.245 BA), 2 R, 7 2B, 5 RBI, 2 BB, 1 SB

Brosseau leads the Biscuits with seven doubles this season, including three in his last three games to show signs of the form he displayed Down Under.

The 24-year-old is in the midst of a three-game hitting streak so will look to keep that going for as long as possible for a struggling Montgomery team.

Correlle Prime (Frisco RoughRaiders, AA) 7 G, 3-23 (.130 BA), 2 R, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 1 BB

No hitter wants to be hitting .130, but given we are only seven games in, there is time for Prime to build his form.

The 2015/16 Heater recently broke out of a 0-10 slump to pick up two RBIs on Sunday.

Zac Law (Bowling Green Hot Rods, A) 8 G, 9-31 (.290 BA), 1 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 1 BB, 2 SB

Since returning to action last week, Law has been an offensive-machine. Through four games, the 21-year catcher is hitting .400 with a home run and three RBIs.
