Farm Factory Award May 8th
Edwin Rios and Scott Barlow win the FFA for hitting and pitching. Rios slowed down over the weekend but he got out to such a great start for the week that he still wins the FFA due to lack of competition.
Ibandel Isabel had an interesting week. He hit .308 along with two home runs giving him nine for the season. But he also struck out 13 times in 26 at bats. 29 Plate Appearances, eight hits, three walks, thirteen strikeouts. Five times he hit the ball and didn’t get a hit out of 29 PA.
Scott Barlow probably pitched his greatest professional game on May 6th when he threw a one-hitter for six innings. He gave up zero runs, walked three and struck out nine. The 24-year-old was once a sleeper prospect back in 2011 before surgery derailed his career. Maybe he can follow the Ross Stripling road and become a relevant prospect once again. He has been the best starting pitcher on the AA Tulsa team.
Yaisel Sierra gets an honorable mention. Sierra pitched in two games in relief, went five innings, two hits, zero earned runs, zero walks, and five punchouts. Sierra continues to work his way back into the Dodger plans.
