With the second week of the long baseball season coming to an end, there are some former Florida State Seminole Baseball players making an impact at the MLB level. Whether its rookie Devon Travis, 10-year veteran Stephen Drew, or three time World Series champion Buster Posey, they will always be known for being a part of the prestigious Florida State Baseball program.

Rookie Devon Travis, who made his MLB debut in grand fashion with a home run in his first game last week, added to an impressive start after being moved up in the batting order due to the injury to Jose Reyes. Travis hit .370 with two home runs and nine RBIs in the last seven days, with five of his 10 hits going for extra bases.

Stephen Drew has had an interesting week to say the least. Although Drew only had three hits in 13 at bats, all three hits were home runs. It is an improvement over his first week, when he went three for 20. Sticking with the topic of interesting weeks, Randy Choate had four appearances in the last seven days, but was only able to get credit for completing two thirds of an inning. Choate surrendered one run, one hit, and one walk in those two-thirds innings pitched.

After a solid six for 17 week, Buster Posey's bat has cooled down as the catcher went three for 23 with a home run, lowering his season average to .250. It wasn't all bad though, as Posey received his 2014 World Series ring on Saturday.

Just as fellow reliever Randy Choate, Sean Gilmartin was only able to complete two thirds of an inning, allowing two runs, two hits with one of them being a home run, and one walk. This was a step back from the beginning of the season when he pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings. Shane Robinson has taken advantage of his limited appearances, going three for 10 with a double and a stolen base. Playing in Minnesota, he should be receiving more at bats in the near future.
