A Few quick thoughts-

That’s the ticket! There’s still some blue up there, but this was a much better week for the Young Bucs.

What goes up…

Hudson Head and Matt Fraizer have both had a rough go this year, as neither has had a lot of nice weeks and neither has been able to capitalize and gain momentum. So, it’s nice to see both guys have a good week. While Hudson had a modest go, Fraizer put together a heck of a week. Here’s to hoping they can both put together a little run here!

…must come down

As the two guys that have struggled the most this year enjoyed a nice week, two of the most consistent guys, Ji-hwan Bae and Mike Burrows, had a down week. Burrows is still adjusting to AAA, as he mentioned in an interview he is learning and he has to limit his mistakes. But, I’m betting this doesn’t take long. And Bae just had a down week, and that’s okay. We all have one.

Same as it ever was!

Endy Rodriguez and Travis Swaggerty have both been really consistent this year and this week was no different. Endy has been there all year and has seemed to ramp it up lately. Travis had kind of turned it on right before his call up and hasn’t turned it off since. Is another call up coming soon? Or, perhaps he becomes trade bait for the upcoming August Trade Deadline? (Yes, I still capitalize it due to the fact it should be a national holiday.)

Nice rebound Mr. Jones. Nice rebound Mr. Yajure.

And lastly, something special this way comes.

A quick congrats to Bubba Chandler as he prepares for his first start in Bradenton, in low A. And honestly, I wouldn’t have been surprised if they had skipped low A and called him straight up to Greensboro, High A. Bubba has been on a different planet than the competition. Not that there’s nothing to work on, because there is. He needs to limit his K rate at the plate and make better contact. On the mound, his control obviously needs to work. Well deserved call up and we could be looking at a pretty solid FV jump here if he performs well in A ball.

Dariel Lopez. At the end of May Lopez sat at .228/.285/.409 .694 OPS, .181 ISO, 86 wRC+ with a walk rate of 7.2% and a K rate of 29%. Since June 1st? Well that’s different. .318/.341/.512 .852 OPS, .194 ISO, 128 wRC+, BB% 2.2%, K% 26.7%. I haven’t been able to watch him a lot this year, but whatever adjustment he made has all eyes back on him. Keep raking, Mr. Lopez.
