Red Sox Triple-A (Worcester)

David Hamilton is back after missing two weeks due to injury. The left-handed hitting middle infielder went 3-for-16 with four walks in four games. He scored four runs and stole one base. Hamilton is slashing .256/.340/.488 with nine doubles, three triples, and 11 home runs. He's driven in 25 runs, scored 39 more, and stolen 27 bases.

Enmanuel Valdez is 9-for-21 (.429) with one double and four home runs since being sent back down to Triple-A. The left-handed hitting second baseman has a .257/.358/.557 slash line with four doubles, one triple, and five home runs for Worcester. He's driven in 15 runs, scored 11 more, and stolen one base.

Stephen Scott's making a quick strong impression in Triple-A. The left-handed hitting catcher is 3-for-12 with four walks. He's hit one home run, has four RBI, and has scored two runs in five games.

Christian Koss is slashing .250/.279/.375 with three doubles and one triple in Triple-A. The right-handed hitting shortstop has driven in six runs, scored seven more, and stolen one base in 12 games.

Ronaldo Hernandez continues to crush baseballs. The right-handed hitting catcher is slashing .240/.322/.496 with five doubles and nine home runs. He's driven in 35 runs and scored 17 more. Since the beginning of June, Hernandez is 14-for-45 (.311) with five home runs and 19 RBI.

Ryan Fitzgerald had a multi-homer game this week. The left-handed hitting utility is slashing .301/.361/.561 with 17 doubles, two triples, and 10 home runs. He's driven in 45 runs, scored 33 more, and stolen five bases.

Bobby Dalbec is slashing .301/.418/.645 with nine doubles, two triples, and 17 home runs in Triple-A. The right-handed hitting first baseman has driven in 41 runs, scored 46 more, and stolen nine bases. Talk about raising your stock.

Shane Drohan had another solid start this week. The left-handed pitcher continues to put up strong performances in Double-A, but they are still getting drowned out by that one rough outing. Drohan has a 3.22 ERA, .197 BAA, and 1.17 WHIP between Double-A and Triple-A. He's struck out 63 batters and walked 29 in 64 1/3 innings.

Ryan Fernandez was promoted to Triple-A, and in his debut at the level on Sunday, he tossed a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout. The right-handed reliever has a 1.46 ERA, .174 BAA, and 0.93 WHIP between Single-A, Double-A, and Triple-A. He's struck out 33 batters compared to eight walks in 24 2/3 innings.

Rio Gomez has now made three starts in Triple-A. The left-handed pitcher has a 3.55 ERA, .283 BAA, and 1.58 WHIP. Gomez has struck out 15 batters and walked five over 12 2/3 innings. Being his first time really getting actual starts, Gomez is impressing heavily.

Brendan Nail made two scoreless appearances out of the bullpen this week for Worcester. The lefty has allowed two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings for Worcester. He's struck out nine batters and walked two in that time.

Brandon Walter made another solid start this week and is starting to turn his season around. The left-handed starter has a 6.28 ERA, .300 BAA, and 1.65 WHIP in 61 2/3 innings. He's struck out 64 batters and walked 26. The numbers still don't look great, but they are improving. And his start on Saturday was the first time this year that he didn't allow a walk.

Andrew Politi has allowed one run on six hits over eight innings in the month of June. The righty reliever has struck out eight batters and walked one in that time, picking up two saves. Politi has a 2.97 ERA, .230 BAA, and 1.25 WHIP this season. He's struck out 32 batters and walked 12 in 30 1/3 innings.
