Matt Young has been a pest for opposing pitchers all season.
- Matt Young - 8-19, 2B, 2 3B, 6 RBI, BB - Young has been a frequent member of the hot sheet, and this week he did his damage hitting lower in the Gwinnett order, with a .421 average and 1.134 OPS.
- Mike Minor - 1-0, 7 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 2 BB, 8 K - Minor just keeps stepping up his game, putting up his best start at AAA this week. He's experienced very little failure this year, with a 6-7 record, 3.49 ERA, and 1.15 WHIP between Mississippi and Gwinnett. With Gwinnett he has a 1.99 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP.
- Erik Cordier - 1-0, 7 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 4 BB, 10 K - Cordier has had his ups and downs this season, but his last start may have been his best, as he fanned 10 in 7 innings while only allowing 1 earned run. July was his best month, as he put up a 1.71 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP in 31.2 innings.
Cory Harrilchak - 8-23, 4 2B, 3B, RBI, 3 BB - Harrilchak has been on fire since his re-promotion to Myrtle Beach, and he kept that up by hitting .348 with a 1.032 OPS this week. Since rejoining the team in late June, he's hit .313 with a .836 OPS in 144 at bats.
Honorable Mention: Nate McLouth, Brandon Hicks, Freddie Freeman, Barbaro Canizares, Scott Diamond, Craig Kimbrel, Steve Marek, Cristian Martinez, Gwinnett; Donell Linares, Benino Pruneda, Richard Sullivan, Jacob Thompson, Mississippi; Ty'Relle Harris, Yeliar Castro, Paul Clemens, Brett Oberholtzer, Gerry Rodriguez, Jordan Kreke, JJ Hoover, Zeke Spruill, Myrtle Beach; Phil Gosselin, Jace Whitmer, Tom Berryhill, Brett DeVall, David Hale, Robinson Lopez, Todd Cunningham, Rome; Ryan Weber, Danville
Matt Lipka - 2-20, RBI, 2 BB, 4 K, SB - He'd been hot most of July, but Lipka fell off in the last week, hitting just .100 with a horrendously low .281 OPS. If you take out this last week, he hit .405 with a .971 OPS for the month.
Tyler Pastornicky - 2-19, 3 BB, 3 K, SB - After getting off to a hot start with his new team, Pastornicky hit a cold stretch this week, hitting just .105 with a lowly .332 OPS. He's still only 20 years old, so even if he falters at AA this year, he'll still be young for the level next year.
- Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado - 0-2, 8.2 IP, 9 ER, 12 H, 8 BB, 9 K - The Braves' top pitching prospects threw up duds this week, Teheran in his first AA start, Delgado in his second. neither made it through 5 innings, with Teheran walking 6 in his 4 innings.
Edward Salcedo - 4-20, 2B, 2 BB, 3 K, SB - It's been a tough transition to playing in the states for Salcedo, as he's hit just .218 with a .634 OPS in 25 games for Rome, striking out in 28% of his at bats. He hit a low this week, with a .200 average and a .522 OPS.
