Players of the Month: July

louisville

Hitter: Scott Schebler – Forget just the Reds organization, there are few hitters in all of baseball that had a better two month stretch than Schebler did in June and July. For July, Schebler hit .359 with an outrageous 1.125 OPS. Six of his 18 extra base hits went for home runs.

Pitcher: Amir Garrett – While Garrett did post a 3.97 ERA in four starts for the month, the league hit just .198 against him. Garrett posted 16 strikeouts in 22.1 innings of work. The main issue for Garrett was the nine walks, but six of those came in one outing. He also allowed five runs in that start, inflating his monthly ERA.

Hitter: Zach Vincej – Vincej hit .370 for the month with a 1.013 OPS. He hit two of his three home runs on the season in the month and saw a significant spike in power. He also added a season high eight doubles in the month. Vincej is also a smooth fielder at short, which can get lost in statistics at times.

Pitcher: Sal Romano – After a tough start to the season, Romano really hit his groove in July. He posted a 2.25 ERA in six starts for Pensacola. Romano posted in even nine in K/9 and walked just six batters in 36 innings of work for the month. He worked into the seventh in three of the six starts and went no less than five innings and any of them.

Hitter: Aristides Aquino – Angelo Gumbs gave Aquino a run for his money when it came to the honors, but Aquino barely squeaked it out. For the month, Aquino hit .314 with a 1.053 OPS. He hit six home runs and seven doubles. With the power, Aquino drove in an astounding 25 runs for the month.

Pitcher: Tejay Antone – For the month, Antone started five games and posted a 2.32 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP. After average numbers for the first two month, and struggling his way though June with an ERA near six, the honor is a tad unexpected for Antone. He struck out 19 to just nine walks for the month.

Hitter: Nick Senzel – Since being promoted to Dayton to start the month, Senzel has tore up the Midwest league to the tone of .322 and a .982 OPS. Senzel hit his first three professional home runs in the month and 12 extra base hits. He also walked 18 times to his 19 strikeouts.

Pitcher: Sarkis Ohanian – For the month, the Dayton pitching staff really struggled as a collective unit, but Ohanian was the exception to the group. In 11 outings, he posted an 0.84 ERA with the league hitting just .105 against him. He added six saves and struck out 21 in just 10.2 innings.
