Dunedin Blue Jays – Low A
Record: 21 – 31
Harrison Ray – OF
In his first professional season with the Blue Jays, outfielder Harrison Ray is performing quite well. He leads the Jays roster with his .905 OPS and is finding ways to get on base with consistency. Since June 20, Ray has gone 8 for 34 (.235) but has got on base via walk nine times with three home runs and seven RBI in the same span.
Alejandro Melean – RHP
While right-hander Alejandro Melean was used as a relief pitcher to begin the year, the Venezuelan product has made the recent switch to starting games and is producing solid results. Through 9.0 combined innings over two starts, Melean has allowed only one earned run with five walks and 11 strikeouts since the role change.
Trent Palmer – RHP
In his first professional season since being drafted in the fifth round last year, right-hander Trent Palmer is struggling to find consistency on the mound. Through his five starts, Palmer has two outings where he did not give up an earned run while the other three all produced 2+ or more. While this normally wouldn’t be a big issue, Palmer has yet to go more than 3.0 innings, which is why his ERA is at 7.15.
The walks have been an issue for Palmer as well, as he has 12 walks on the year compared to 15 strikeouts. At 22 years old, he is still going to be developing in the system and hopefully puts June behind him for better times in July.
RHP Nick Frasso has been transferred to the 60-day IL retroactive back to June 4.
RHP Grant Townsend was transferred from the 7-day IL to the 60-day IL.
C Anthony Morales activated from 7-day IL.
RHP Thomas Ruwe and LHP Wilgenis Alvarado were promoted to the Dunedin Blue Jays.
OF Jhon Solarte was sent down to the FCL Blue Jays.
RHP Andrew Bash was activated and assigned to Low-A.
C Ryan Sloniger has retired.
