First, checkout the feature I wrote over at Ballpark Digest.
Colby Rasmus was Number 15 on this week’s Baseball America Prospect Hot Sheet. From BA: After hitting .421 with two home runs in 19 at-bats last week, Rasmus has lifted his season line to .257/.368/.495 in 378 at-bats. He is hitting .438/.609/.938 with two homers and two doubles in 16 August at-bats, after slumping through June and July.
Also from BA: New Red and outfielder Shaun Cumberland just missed making the Sheet for his 9-for-22 (.409) with four doubles week for Chattanooga. I mention Cumberland because I saw him play over the weekend as was really impressed. He has a smooth lefty stick, nice range in the outfield, and a strong arm. Chattanooga had another really nice young outfielder, Danny Dorn, who hit an opposite field bomb during the game.
I love Lucena? Apparently they do in Springfield.
No Cardinal minor leaguers received Player of the Week honors.
