–Jesus Montero, NYY, C, Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees (#3): Montero didnt have a great week average wise, but did hit two HRs, bringing the season total to 13. No news on the call up front. I don’t think Posada’s big day on Saturday will make it tougher for Montero to find playing time down the stretch, unless Jorgie channels 2009.
-Dayan Viciedo, CWS, OF, Charlotte Knights (unranked): Viciedo had better start improving if he wants to make an impact with the Chisox come September. He is now at .206/.386/.265 over his last ten. Sure the walks are nice (9 in last ten), but his avg/power struggles go back awhile now.
–Devin Mesoraco, CIN, C, Louisville Bats (#64): Mesoraco had only three hits last week, but two were HRs. He has had a better season than Montero, but is well off the 26 HR pace from last year.
–Adrian Cardenas, OAK, DH, Sacramento River Cats (unranked):Cardenas was back to hitting for average last week, as he went 8 for 23, raising it to .299 on the season. No HRs, and only two RBIs and 1 walk though.
–Brandon Guyer, TB, OF, Durham Bulls (unranked): Guyer returned from the DL on 8/13, and went 3 for 4 with 2 doubles.
–Lorenzo Cain, KC, OF, Omaha (unranked): Cain slumped last week, which now makes two weeks of mediocre play at the plate. He was 5 for 23, but had a HR.
-Julio Teheran, ATL, SP, Gwinnett Braves (#5): Teheran bounced back on 8/12 after his disastrous 8/7 start: 7 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 Ks.
