Through Saturday, Salt River is tied for the league’s best record at 9-5. If it wins the division, it will play in the championship game at the end of the season.

Hitters

2B Vidal Brujan, Arizona Fall League

This week: 20 AB, 3 R, 6 H, 2 3B, 5 RBI, 3 BB, 3 K, 2/2 SB
Offseason: 49 AB, .306 BA/.364 OBP/.592 SLG

Brujan continues to swing a good bat in Arizona, and his hitting streak is up to nine games.

C Ronaldo Hernandez, AFL

This week: 7 AB, 1 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 K
Offseason: 17 AB, .294 BA/.368 OBP/.353 SLG

Hernandez certainly seems to be one of Salt River’s taxi squad players, so I wouldn’t expect him to play more than twice a week.

OF Josh Lowe, AFL

This week: 10 AB, 4 R, 4 H, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 4 K, 1/1 SB
Offseason: 35 AB, .343 BA/.395 OBP/.571 SLG

Pitchers

RHP Shane Baz, AFL

This week: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
Offseason: 6 13 IP, 9.95 ERA, 1.74 WHIP

RHP Simon Rosenblum-Larson, AFL

RHP Drew Strotman, AFL

This week: 1 13 IP, 5 H, 6 R (3 ER), 3 BB, 0 K
Offseason: 8 IP, 7.88 ERA, 1.63 WHIP

Coming back from Tommy John surgery, not every outing is going to be good for Strotman.

This week: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
Offseason: 5 IP, 0.00 ERA, 0.40 WHIP
