Lorenzo Cedrola just keeps on picking up hits and had 3 more in a Chattanooga comeback win, Matt McLain homered and drove in 3 runs in Dayton’s win, and Jose Torres continued to hit well since being drafted as he homered and drove in 4 for Daytona as they moved back to the .500 mark on the season.

    If someone had told me the first week of the season that Jonathon Willems would hit 50 points higher than Eric Yang in he last week of the season I would not have believed them, let alone 30+ higher than the most disappointing 2021 Dragon Michael Siani.

      Siani has been a disappointment with the batting average, for sure. He is one of the youngest Dayton guys, so there is a chance for optimism, hopefully.

      But I’m not sure anybody expects Yang to ever contribute with his bat? Although I would have expected him to take advantage of being an older guy in Dayton, and hit in the 0.220~0.240 range this year, and not 0.200

        Yang hit .368 his last year in college and .290 his 2019 season at Billings.I expected at least .250 to .270 rather than the .200 he sits at today.

      • A

        Yang hit 0.368 his last year in college, but that was aided by a nearly 0.400 babip. He only hit 0.250 the two previous seasons in college.

        It’s also difficult to assume the stats of an older player in rookie ball will carry over.

      • MK

        He is a legit 5’11” same as Barnhart so he is the perfect size. He won’ t be confused with Fred Patek, like some others.

      • Andrew

        Whew. Interesting Yang is the same size as McClain almost exactly. Yang has an extra 5 lbs on him I guess, per baseball reference

  2. Matt O

    Looks like Winker made it 5 innings in the field. Hopefully he can make it 8 or 9 tonight and rejoin the Reds in Cincinnati for the Dodgers.

  3. MBS

    Barrero, McLain, De La Cruz, Torres, Rodriguez, Johnson

    A team with no starting SS, now seems to have an abundance. The top 2 are sure fire bets to do some real contributing on the MLB level, but 1 or 2 more might as well. I am wondering if one of those guys is our future CF.

      I’m still thinking Miguel Hernandez is in the mix, as another who can stick at short, though how much he hit’s is in question. And Minier down in AZ
