Matt Young has been a pest for opposing pitchers all season.

Who's Hot?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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

Who's Not?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
