It was a tough week, as a couple of the system's hottest hitters--Josh Harrison and Ramon Cabrera--missed time with injuries and few of the team's top pitching prospects had good outings. Still, Bradenton always seems to be good for some hot hitting performances. I think I'll give Matt Curry a rest, as hot hitting seems like it'll be the norm for him until he moves up.
Jeremy Farrell, 3B (AA): After a 12-for-27 (.444) week, with five doubles and a HR, Farrell now stands at 329/396/524. And he's still healthy!
Brock Holt, 2B (AA): Holt started the week with a four-hit game and finished it with a three-hit game. For the week he went 12-for-31 (.387) with two doubles and a triple. He's also stolen six bases in seven tries.
