Trevor Oaks hurls seven-plus shutout innings for Oklahoma Dodgers
As the Dodgers play musical chairs with their rotation, Trevor Oaks wants to make sure they don’t forget about him by throwing seven-plus shutout innings. Oaks coming off one of his worse starts got twenty-two outs, gave up six hits and zero runs. The 2014, 7th round pick is now 13 – 3 on the season over three levels.
Highly ranked prospect Alex Verdugo is in a huge funk hitting just .143 over his last ten games. Those 10 games just happen to coincide with the end of the trading deadline. Willie Calhoun is hitting only .214 in August with one home run. Only one of the Tulsa Trio is having a good August and that would be Bellinger who has hit three home runs and possesses a 1.004 OPS in August.
Cuban bonus man Yasiel Sierra had another solid outing in relief going two innings once again. That was Sierra’s ninth straight two-inning outing since being moved from the rotation to the bullpen. Whatever they have done with Sierra is working as he is getting the job done in relief, after being extremely hittable as a starter.
Johan Mieses slammed his seventh home run in his last eleven games giving him 23 for the season. The hotter it gets in Rancho the hotter Mieses seems to get.
