Week 12 is in the books, and a very short week is upcoming with the MLB All Star Game going on. Buster Posey will be the only Florida State representation at the game, while Devon Travis may have had a good chance had it not been for the injury he suffered. Here's the full rundown from this past week.
Devon Travis 2B Toronto Blue Jays:
The rookie infielder continues to swing a hot back after coming back from injury, going 9-24 including four multi-hit games. Travis had three doubles and three RBI's as well, adding to his great month of July in which he is hitting .394. Travis continues to make his case for Rookie of the Year, and is widening the gap between him and the competition.
Season to date: 51 G .301 AVG 7 HR 31 RBI .351 OBP .495 SLG
Sean Gilmartin RP New York Mets:
The lefty specialist did not appear in a single game last week.
Season to date: 30 G 26 1/3 IP 1.71 ERA 21 K 1.14 WHIP
Randy Choate RP St. Louis Cardinals:
Choate wishes he had the same week that Gilmartin had. He made four appearances, giving up 3 ER and a home run, pitching a combined 1 1/3 of an inning. He struck out one and walked one this past week. So far in July, Choate has given up four runs in six appearances after not allowing a single run the whole month prior.
Season to date: 43 G 18 IP 4.00 ERA 12 K .94 WHIP
Stephen Drew 2B New York Yakees:
Drew did what Drew does best, hitting one solo home run while hitting a solid .230 last week (3-13). Drew may have finally lost his starting job as the Yankees called up prospect Rob Refsnyder, however the Yanks have never second guessed starting Drew all season, despite an average that has never been over .193 at any point this season.
Season to date: 78 GP .182 AVG 12 HR 25 RBI .257 OBP .372 SLG
Shane Robinson OF Minnesota Twins:
Robinson played in three games this past week, only getting credit for at bats in one of them. He went 0-3 with a run and two strike outs after coming back from the family emergency list.
Season to date: 53 GP .243 AVG 0 HR 12 RBI .296 OBP .304 SLG
Buster Posey C San Fransisco Giants:
You can watch Posey at the All Star Game on Tuesday (7:30 PM EST on FOX) as he will start the game for the National League. He was forced to miss two games due to an injury, and went 4-14 (as of the sixth inning on 7/11). He also added a run in a surprisingly quiet week for the catcher.
