Around the NYPL: June 20

June 20, 2012 Leave a comment

I’ll try to do this segment at least once a week. In the future, they’ll be a little bigger, but tough to get a real read on players or teams after just two days in the books. Common themes will be Players/Pitchers of the Week along with updated standings.

The long ball is back. Four guys have already hit more than one homerun this year, led by a guy Jamestown fans are happy to see leaving town in Juan Romero, who clubbed three in these first two games. Torsten Boss (Aberdeen) Brandon Miller (Auburn) and Jesus Montero (Batavia) have two.

Not much out of staring pitchers yet (as is to be expected) but Luis Mateo threw a nice game for Brooklyn on Tuesday. He went 5.2 and struck out nine while allowing just two hits and a run. Only four pitchers (out of 28) have finished the sixth inning so far.

It’s brutally early, but Jesus Montero is the MVP of the league, and he’s doing it for a winless team. Montero is 7-for-8 with the aforementioned two homeruns. He has 14 total bases in eight at bats. Yowza.
