After ripping  Kevin Ahrens last week, the former first-rounder got his act together with an 11-hit week, including a five-game multi-hit streak, though he still couldn’t slug his way out of a paper bag.  At Las Vegas, Travis d’Arnaud has cooled off but Anthony Gose has been on fire at the plate and on the base paths.

Kevin Ahrens – 11-for-25, 2B, 3B; has been a much better hitter on the road (.322/.388/.373) than at home (.220/.360/.293) this year and has collected two hits in each of his last five games.

Jonathon Berti – 4-for-23, 3B; went 2-for-4 with his first triple of the year on May 4, but is batting .174 in May.

Markus Brisker – 4-for-21, 2 2B; had a modest four-game hitting streak from May 3-6, but has gone 0-for-7 since. Brisker still leads the organization with 13 stolen bases.

Andrew Burns – 8-for-22, 4 2B, HR; walking at a reasonable clip (7.9%) but striking out in 21.8% of his trips to the plate.

David Cooper – 8-for-21, 2B, 3 HR; had hits in all five of his games last week and each of his last six. All four of his home runs have come since April 28 and Cooper leads Jays farmhands in doubles (12) and RBI (28).

Michael Crouse – 5-for-20, 2 2B, HR; hit his first home run of the season in Dunedin’s 16-4 win over Fort Myers last night, but has 19/2 SO/BB since April 25.

Travis d’Arnaud – 7-for-26, 2 2B; his 14-game hitting streak was snapped on May 5, but he’s still hit in 16 of his last 17 games, raising his batting average 94 points during that stretch.

Brad Glenn – 2-for-13; has struck out in 31.9% of his plate appearances.

Ryan Goins – 11-for-26, 2B; had three hits in back-to-back-to-back games, but only one of his 11 hits last week went for extra bases.

Anthony Gose – 10-for-30, 3B, 2 HR; appears to have put his sluggish start behind him, carrying a nine-game hitting streak into today’s game at Oklahoma City. Gose is tied for the organization lead in triples (3) and has been a perfect 12-for-12 in stolen base attempts since being caught in his first three tries.

Christopher Hawkins – 7-for-22, 2B; matched his season-best with three hits, including a double, on May 3, but hasn’t drawn a walk in his last 10 games.

Adeiny Hechavarria – 9-for-30, 2 2B, HR; currently leads Toronto minor leaguers in hits (42), and runs (30), and is tied for first with 155 PA.

Justin Jackson – 2-for-17, 3B; after batting .288 in April, Jackson’s average has dropped to .247 with a 2-for-19 May.

A.J. Jimenez – 3-for-17, 2B; drew his fourth walk of the year last week and has been making a lot of contact, but the hits haven’t been dropping in (.275 batting average on balls in play).

Marcus Knecht – 8-for-23, 3 2B, 2 HR; salvaged an otherwise-disappointing week by going 4-for-5 with a pair of home runs last night.

Jake Marisnick – 5-for-30; went 0-for-4 with a walk in Dunedin’s 16-run outburst last night; tied for organization lead in triples (3).

Mike McDade – 9-for-23, 2B, 2 HR; went 0-for-3  on Monday, snapping a nine-game hitting streak, but has nearly as many multi-walk games (4) as multi-strikeout games (5).

Sean Ochinko – 8-for-25, 3 2B; currently has a six-game hit streak.

Carlos Perez – 3-for-19, 2 2B; only hit .158 last week, but two of his three hits were doubles… so there’s that.

Moises Sierra – 10-for-28,  2 2B, 2 HR; tied for the organization lead with six home runs, and hasn’t shown a significant home/road split thus far. If #FreeMoisesSierra isn’t a thing, it should be.

Jon Talley – 2-for-2, 2B; Talley returned to the lineup and reached base in four of his five trips to the plate.

  1. Carlos Perez – 3-for-19, 2 2B; only hit .158 last week, but two of his three hits were doubles… so there’s that.

    Stoeten? Is that you??

  2. Cooper smells blood. Adam Lind’s blood.

    • I wish there was a way to see what he could do with some ML at bats and Murphy preaching power…. I just don’t actually want to give him any ML at bats….

    • 13 home runs in 678 PCL plate appearances…

  3. What could be dangerous is Both Gose and Marisnick are tied for the lead in triples. Both will figure into the long term plans for the jays going CF and RF.

  4. There’s gotta be one of those guys who can a) hit and hit for power and b) play a decent 1B.

    • Hawkins…. but not for a few more years….?

      • Hawkins can handle himself in left field, doesn’t *have* to move further down the defensive spectrum. Bautista is likely to shift to first base before Hawkins is ready, anyway.

  5. It’s time someone promoted Mottola to the show. Baseball is a weird game and I dont want to shit all over Murphy, but I think Mottola’s better.

    • put me as the hitting coach in vegas and I’d seemer better . there’s no way to rank that kind of stuff

  6. And wtf is up with Ahrens? I thought he was dead and buried 2 years ago? Is it possible to revive this guy and get some value out of him?

  7. Can you talk to some scouts about the Jays prospects?
