Florida State University Baseball MLB Update: Week 3

We take a weekly look around the MLB, looking back on how former FSU baseball players have done this past week.

Week three of the MLB season is coming to a close, which means its time to take a look back at all six former Florida State baseball players on MLB rosters. Its always a great sight to see the former Noles compete in the MLB, with many more on their way.

Devon Travis has continued to swing a hot bat, hitting two more home runs last week. In total, the rookie went seven for 15, bolstering his season batting average to .383, securing his place on the Toronto lineup card.

Randy Choate did not do too much this week, throwing 1/3 of an inning, giving up a home run in his bullpen duties. Fellow reliever, Sean Gilmartin, pitched two 2/3 innings, allowing two hits and two walks, while striking out one.

Stephen Drew continued to struggle, going three for 18, lowering his season batting average to .167. He had a home run this past week, making four of his eight hits on the season a home run. Drew is also having trouble making contact, striking out at least once in four of his last five games.

Shane Robinson continues to make an argument for getting a spot in the starting lineup. Off the bench, he went five for seven with 3 RBI's. Its just down to a matter of time when the Twins will give Robinson an extended opportunity.

Buster Posey had an average week, going six for 25 with 2 RBIs. His season average is .234, a long way from his career .306 mark. Posey should heat up in the coming weeks, or this could be a very long season for him and the Giants, who are currently in last place.
