 (MILB)

Warwick Saupold (Detroit Tigers, MLB)

Wazza's tough June continued this past week, surrendering three runs in 1.2 innings of work on Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds. Saupold's June ERA sits at an ugly 10.13 with his season ERA at 4.45. The 28-year-old will be hoping to return to the form that saw him pitch to a 1.84 ERA in May.

Peter Moylan (Atlanta Braves, MLB)

In his first outing of the week, Moylan game up two runs whilst recording just one out against the San Diego Padres, before bouncing back with a scoreless inning against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday. 

Mychal Givens (Baltimore Orioles, MLB)

Four scoreless outings in the last week and Givens seems right back on track. The former Heat infielder has thrown 3.2 frames in that time and has lowered his season ERA to 3.93.

Liam Hendriks (Oakland Athletics, MLB)

In his best week of the season, Hendriks threw three scoreless frames, striking out four batters. The former Wanneroo Giants junior now owns a 5.19 ERA over the season, with a 3.18 ERA in June.

Mike Ohlman (Pawtucket Red Sox, AAA)

Ohlman blasted his seventh home run of the season this week in the midst of a 3-15 streak. The catcher is now hitting .240 with 17 RBIs.

Joey Wong (Binghamton Rumble Ponies, AA/Las Vegas 51s, AAA)

After a week in AAA with the Las Vegas 51s where he failed to record a hit in eight at-bats, Wong returned to AA Rumble Ponies, going 1-6 at the plate.

Mike Brosseau (Montgomery Biscuits, AA)

Appearing in just three games this past week, Brosseau went 2-10 this week with an RBI as his average dropped a point to .221 after 53 games.

Zac Law (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

Despite hitting his first home run for the Stone Crabs this past week, Law endured a tough time at the plate, going 2-16 in four games to drop his average to .222.

Jake Fraley (Charlotte Stone Crabs, A+)

Like Law, Fraley also had a tough time of it at the plate this week, going 1-15 with an RBI. The 23-year-old Helms Award winner has now appeared in 10 games on the season as he tries to put his injury problems behind him.

Ulrich Bojarski (West Michigan Whitecaps, A)

In his second week with Class A West Michigan, Bojarski went 4-17 at the plate with two doubles and a triple. The 19-year-old has five RBIs in just 10 games.

Robbie Glendinning (West Virginia Black Bears, A)

For a second successive year, Glendinning will call the Black Bears home. In his first week since Extended Spring Training, Glendinning went 5-18 with two doubles and two RBIs in a solid start at the plate for the 22-year-old.

Jake Turnbull (Billings Mustang, Pioneer League)

Like Glendinning, Turnbull will be staying put with the Billings Mustangs in 2018. After hitting a flat .200 last season, the 20-year-old is 1-6 with a double over his first two outings.

Jess Williams & Alex Hall (AZL Brewers, Rookie)

Our Brewers duo will report to the Arizona League for their first taste of pro-ball. In their first game of the season on Tuesday, Williams reached base three times, going 2-3 with a walk, triple, two runs scored and two RBIs while Hall went 0-4.

Jake Baker (Gulf Coast Tigers, Gulf Coast League)

Making his 2018 Gulf Coast League debut, Baker struck out three batters in 1.1 scoreless innings on Tuesday.

Alex Boshers (Winnipeg Goldeyes)

Boshers recorded a no-decision after throwing five innings, giving up two earned runs on seven hits whilst striking out eight. His season ERA is gradually dropping each week and now sits at 3.68 through seven games.

Dylan Thompson (Sioux Falls Canaries)

Thompson maintained his strong form, collecting his third win of the season after pitching seven innings, giving up just one run whilst striking out nine of the 26 batters he faced.

Mike Hart (Sioux Falls Canaries)

In five games this week, Hart is an impressive 5-16. The versatile catcher/outfielder is now hitting .300 in 18 games with the Canaries.

Joe Van Meter (York Revolution)

Van Meter earned his second win of the season, pitching six shutout innings against Southern Maryland, striking out four batters in his fourth start of the season. 

Kyle Simon (New Britain Bees)

Simon recorded a no-decision, surrendering four runs in five innings against Lancaster last Wednesday. The 198cm starter now owns a 4.31 ERA across eight starts.

EUROPE:

Sam Kennelly (Twins Honkbal, Netherlands)

Kennelly had a strong week as the Twins won three games in a row for the first time all season. The 22-year-old went 4-12 at the plate with two doubles and three RBIs to increase his season average to .270.
