Hitter: Jesse Winker – For the week, Winker had two multi-hit games after Scott Schebler was promoted. He held down the outfield production with the Bats by going 9-for-25 for the week. He also raised his season average ten points during the week. The only issue is that only one of the hits were for extra bases.

Pitcher: Tim Adleman – Though Adleman was taken off rehab and optioned to Louisville during the week due to a numbers game, it doesn’t change the success that he had. In two starts for the week, Adleman worked 7.2 and seven innings respectively in each. In those 14.2 innings, he allowed just 11 hits and one earned run. He also struck out 14 during the week.

Hitter: Alex Blandino – Over the week, Blandino hit in four of the six games, with three multi-hit efforts. Blandino has been hot for more than a week, but takes this honor by going 9-for-28 over the span. He also added a home run on August 1, and drove in four runs for the week.

Pitcher: Jackson Stephens – While Stephens only got one start for the week, it was that impressive. On August 2, Stephens worked seven strong innings, allowing just three hits and one run. He walked just one and struck out seven. This continues the consistency that Stephens has seen all season, but not many starts have been as good as this one.

Hitter: Reydel Medina – It is hard to find anyone over the last week who had two better games in the span than Medina. On July 31, he went 4-for-5 with two triples and three RBI. Then, on August 3, he went 3-for-4 with two double and a triple, with four more driven in. For the week, Medina went 8-for-21, but just 1-for-12 outside of those two games. However, the overall numbers still put him at the top.

Pitcher: Ismael Guillon – Guillon has been strikeout machine lately. While he only also got one start over the week, it was one of the best in a while. Guillon worked the first five innings of a seven-inning double header contest. In those innings, he posted his second straight 10-strikeout start. He also allowed just one hit and no runs. In his previous start on July 28, he matched the same totals, except one more hit.

Hitter: Nick Senzel – Senzel has done nothing but rake since being promoted to Dayton at the beginning of July, and this continued over the past week. Senzel homered in his final two games of the week, and also added two doubles. Overall, he went 9-for-27 for the week.

Pitcher: Alex Webb – After his first Low-A start on Sunday did not go exactly how he wanted, Webb bounced back nicely in his second. On July 31, Webb had a rough first inning, but still rebounded to work three innings and allow just one earned run. In his second start, Webb tossed five quality innings, allowing just three hits and one unearned run.
