Yan Gomes, C – NH Fisher Cats (Toronto Class Double A): .250 BA, 34 R, 18 2B, 13 HR, 51 RBI, .781 OPS – I added Gomes to the list because, even though he was born in Brazil, he attended HS and college in the US. I did not realize until recently , however, that he began playing baseball in Brazil. Gomes has also played in 4 games for Triple A Las Vegas this season.
Paulo Orlando, OF- NW Arkansas Naturals (KC Class Double A): .305 BA, 30 R, 5 2B, 10 3B, 4 HR, 24 RBI, 8 SB, .889 OPS – Was re-assigned back to Double A after a slow start in Omaha. Has played very well since then.
Andre Rienzo, P – Winston-Salem Dash (CHW Class A+): 6-5, 3.41 ERA/1.36 WHIP in 25 G/22 GS, 118K/66 BB in 116 IP. – Was on disabled list in the middle of the season. Has only allowed 6 earned runs in last 23 innings pitched.
Murillo Gouvea, P - Lexington Legends (HOU Class A): 1-3, 1 Save, 3.98 ERA in 30 games, 83 K/29 BB in 74.2 IP. – Gouvea has been a decent relief pitcher and it appears the Astros organization would like to convert him into a starter, as they’ve started him a couple times this season.
Felipe Burin, 3B – VSL/AZL Mariners (SEA Rookie): .350 BA, 42 R, 30 2B, 1 HR, 50 RBI, 4 SB, .891 OPS. – Burin’s numbers speak for themselves, he has played very well this season, splitting time between the Arizona and Venezuela rookie leagues.
Pedro Okuda, SS – VSL Mariners (SEA Rookie): .275 BA, 28 R, 17 RBI in 149 ABs. - Looks like Okuda is finally starting to settle in to professional baseball, as his production has gotten more consistent over the course of the season.
Leonardo Reginatto, SS – Hudson Valley Renegades (TB Class A Short Season): .198 BA, 20 R, 2 HR, 17 RBI, 11 SB in 63 games. – Reginatto has struggled in his first season at Single A.
