May 22nd – Font Farm Factory Award winner
There were a lot of great performances by LAD prospects in the past week but the award has to belong to Wilmer Font. He’s not even really a prospect but when you put up a game like he put up on Monday he has to be on someone’s radar. I don’t care what kind of league you are in but when you strike out fifteen of your twenty one outs you are dealing. However Font wasn’t done dealing. On Sunday Night, The Font continued his dominant ways with another stellar effort, striking out another ten of his fifteen outs. For the week, Font struck out twenty-five hitters out of thirty-six outs. In his last five games Font has done the following:
Another notable efforts this week:
The man who some say will never play 2nd base base in the major leagues, Willie Calhoun hit four home runs, including three games in a row with a home run. Currently sitting with a plus .900 OPS for the season and a plus 1.000 OPS in May.\
19-year-old Dustin May hurled his best professional game for the Loons on Saturday Night. May struck out nine of his fifteen outs, giving up only two hits, one run, one walk.
2017 first round pick Gavin Lux came to life this week collecting ten hits and moved his up around 100 points to .643.
Kyle Farmer collected eight hits in just twenty at-bats to move his average upto .342, and is hitting .513 over his last ten games. Now sporting a robust .891 OPS overall, and .990 in May
Jose Fernandez had three multi hit games and moved his average upto .400 over his last ten games.
