Vancouver Canadians – High A

Record:  27 – 26

Playing Well:

Luis De Los Santos – INF

Nobody is swinging a hotter bat right now than infielder Luis De Los Santos, who has seen his OPS skyrocket through the month of June. Since June 22, the Dominican product has gone 18 for 42 (.429) and is currently riding a nine-game hit streak that includes six multi-hit games.

Parker Caracci – RHP

It is no secret that the Canadians best relief pitcher all season has been Parker Caracci. The club’s bona fide closer, Caracci leads the team in appearances (19) and sports a clean 1.00 ERA through 27.0 innings of work. He has five saves through six opportunities and has only allowed three earned runs all season compared to the 16 walks and 25 strikeouts.

He does need to fine-tune his control a bit to bring the walks down, but it is a bit surprising the Blue Jays haven’t moved him up to AA with how well he is performing.

Rough Times:

Philip Clarke – C

Starting catcher Philip Clarke is having a rough year at the plate and the end of June did not help the stats sheet. Since June 22, Clarke has gone 5 for 28 (.179) without a home run or RBI, and only one of those hits being for extra bases.

Cameron Eden – OF

After a terrific start to the year, outfielder Cameron Eden fell into a bit of a slump in late June. Since June 20, Eden has gone 6 for 32 (.188) with only four RBI and one extra-base hit (a home run). He was also just placed on the 7-day injured list as of yesterday, so one wonders if he was playing through the injury that led to the decline at the plate.
