With the MLB All-Star Week coming to an end, the second half of the MLB season has officially begun. The only Florida State alumni to play in the midsummer classic was Buster Posey who went 0-2 while starting at catcher for the National League. All six former FSU Baseball players are all playing on teams that still have a realistic shot at making the Postseason.
Sean Gilmartin RP New York Mets:
Gilmartin made his first appearance in 14 days on Friday, and his only of the week. He was noticably rusty, giving up one earned run in 1/3 innings pitched. That was the first run he has given up since May 24th.
Season to date: 1-0 31 G 26 2/3 IP 2.03 ERA 21 K 1.16 WHIP
Devon Travis 2B Toronto Blue Jays:
Travis played in all three games the Blue Jays participated in, going 4-11 with a double and two RBIs. His hit streak is now up to seven games, and his average remains over .300 after hitting .400 in 13 July games.
Season to date: 54 G .305 AVG 7 HR 33 RBI .352 OBP .492 SLG
Randy Choate RP St. Louis Cardinals:
The oldest active Florida State alumni faced two batters in two appearances this week. He gave up a hit in his first appearance, and struck out the only batter he faced on Saturday.
Season to date: 0-0 44 G 18 IP 3.93 ERA 13 K .98 WHIP
Stephen Drew 2B New York Yankees:
Drew did not have an at bat this week, meaning his batting average did not drop any more. It was a very productive week to say the least.
Season to date: 79 G .182 AVG 12 HR 25 RBI .257 OBP .630 SLG
Buster Posey C San Fransisco Giants:
Posey continues to be on fire, going 7-12 this week with five RBIs, with all seven hits being singles. He also added two runs and boosted his July average to .389. He recorded four RBIs on Saturday for the third time this season.
Season to date: 85 G .318 AVG 14 HR 63 RBI .386 OBP .498 SLG
Shane Robinson OF Minnesota Twins:
Robinson did not have an at bat, but did score a run after coming on as a pinch runner.
Season to date: 54 G .243 AVG 0 HR 12 RBI .296 OBP .304 SLG
