1.) Shawn Wooten - 59 games / .239 BA / 5 HR / 25 RBI
2.) Chris Heintz - 39 games / .297 BA / 1 HR / 17 RBI
Wooten started five of the six games played by the Red Wings as the catcher. His batting average increased by 1 point and he picked up an RBI.
Heintz played in all six games, five of which he started at 3B and one of which he started behind the place. I'm close to just listing him with the infielders and listing Wooten as the clubs only catcher. His batting average went up by 6 points and he picked up a couple of RBI's this week.
1B - Garrett Jones - 73 games / .229 BA / 11 HR / 53 RBI
2B - Luis Maza - 59 games / .221 BA / 2 HR / 26 RBI
SS - Gil Velazquez - 38 games / .287 BA / 0 HR / 13 RBI
3B - Glenn Williams - 56 games / .241 BA / 2 HR / 12 RBI
IF - Tommy Watkins - 3 games / .200 BA / 1 HR / 3 RBI
Jones played in all six games for the Red Wings this week, four at 1B and two in RF. His batting average went up by 2 points and he picked up 4 RBI's.
Maza also played in all six games, all at 2B. He increased his batting average by 6 points, hit a HR and picked up 4 RBI's.
Gil Velazquez started every game for the Red Wings at SS, but saw his batting average drop 20 points over the course of the week.
Glenn Williams got into four games, two at 1B, one at 3B, and one as a pinch hitter. His batting average dropped by 7 points over the course of the week.
Tommy Watkins also got into a couple of games, but is definitely not a regular. He now has a batting average, at least, and he hit a homerun.
1.) Kevin West - 24 games / .204 BA / 2 HR / 11 RBI
2.) Josh Rabe - 68 games / .306 BA / 3 HR / 35 RBI
3.) Jason Tyner - 67 games / .323 BA / 0 HR / 19 RBI
4.) Andres Torres - 57 games / .250 BA / 2 HR / 18 RBI
5.) Alex Romero - 14 games / .160 BA / 0 HR / 1 RBI
6.) Shannon Stewart - 2 games / .167 BA / 0 HR / 1 RBI (rehab stint)
Shannon Stewart should be back with the Twins by the end of the week, and is just in Rochester getting some at-bats and running around making sure his foot is ready for the strain of playing again. As for the real minor-leaguers in this bunch:
Tyner started all 6 games in CF this week, bumping up his team-leading batting average by 5 points and picking up an RBI.
Kevin West got into five games this week, four as the DH and 1 as the RF. His batting average suffered, falling by 12 points, although he did pick up an RBI.
Josh Rabe, meanwhile, got into four games, three in LF and one as the DH. His batting average fell by 5 points, but he did pick up a couple of RBI's.
Alex Romero got into four games also, 3 in RF and 1 in LF. His batting average went up by 13 points, but when he started the week hitting .147 that's not saying much.
Andres Torres got into just 2 games, but started just one, in LF. His batting average went up by a point.
