5.) Alexander Smit - 5 starts [2 starts]

Who's Hot: Nobody had 2 clearly good starts, but both Ryan Mullins and Oswaldo Sosa had so-so first efforts and very good second efforts to make this list this "week." Mullins went 10 innings and allowed 6 runs (2 earned) on 10 hits and 4 walks while striking out a very solid 16 batters.

On the season, Smit has a 5.40 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP with a 20-11 K-BB ratio in 23.1 innings. Kyle Waldrop went 10 innings and allowed 8 runs (7 earned) on 13 hits and 3 walks while striking out 9. He has a 3.45 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP in 31.1 innings, along with a 30-6 K-BB ratio.

2.) Angel Garcia - 9 RA [4 RA]
3.) Frank Mata - 9 RA [4 RA]
4.) Kyle Aselton - 8 RA [3 RA]

6.) Yohan Pino - 7 RA, 1 start [2 RA, 1 start]
7.) Zach Ward - 7 RA [2 RA]
8.) David Shinskie - 7 RA [2 RA]

Who's Hot: Frank Mata easily had the best week amongst the relief crew, putting together a solid performance in each of his 4 appearances. For the week, he pitched 6 innings and gave up just 3 hits and a walk while striking out 5 batters. For the season, Mata now has an ERA of 0.69 and a WHIP of 1.08 in 13 innings, along with a more pedestrian 8-6 K-BB ratio. Josh Hill had 3 very solid performances and 1 short so-so performance, but on the week went 6 innings and allowed just 1 run on 7 hits with 2 walks and 4 K's to earn a spot on the "hot" list for the week. His season numbers are not so good, however: 6.39 ERA, 1.89 WHIP, 10-4 K-BB in 12.2 innings.

Who's Not: Everyone had at least one good performance, but individual game performances are going to land a couple of guys on this list. Angel Garcia had 2 good outings and a so-so outing before making an appearance yesterday and giving up 5 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks in just 1.2 innings of work. For the season, he has a 5.02 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP in 14.1 innings. Eduardo Morlan, meanwhile, had 3 solid outings out of 4 appearances, but in a game on May 1st he gave up 4 runs on 4 hits and a walk in just 1.1 innings. That gives him a 3.00 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP, along with a 17-3 K-BB ratio in 15 innings.

1.) Caleb Moore - C(12), DH(4) [C(5), DH(2)]
2.) Jeff Christy - C(10), DH(3) [C(4), DH(2)]
3.) Javier Sanchez - C(7), DH(5) [DH(3), C(2)]

Who's Hot: Hot is a relative term, and among this bunch the only guy who comes close to qualifying is Caleb Moore, who went 5-for-21 this week and is now hitting .231 on the season with a .594 OPS.

Who's Not: Javi Sanchez had a very poor week, going 0-for-12 to reduce his season batting average to .088 with a .397 OPS. Jeff Christy also struggled this week, going 2-for-21 to settle in at .182 on the season with a .493 OPS. Both have also made a couple of errors.

1.) Juan Portes - 2B(24), RF(2), 3B(1) [2B(9), 3B(1)]
2.) Steven Tolleson - SS(20), 2B(3), DH(2) [2B(7), 2B(1)]
3.) Whit Robbins - 1B(15), DH(7), 3B(4) [1B(7), DH(2), 3B(2)]
4.) Toby Gardenhire - 3B(16), SS(4), 2B(1) [3B(5), SS(2), 2B(1)]
5.) Matthew Betsill - 3B(7), 1B(5), SS(4) [3B(3), SS(2), 1B(1)]

Who's Hot: Steven Tolleson went 9-for-29 this week, and is hitting .284 with a .709 OPS on the season, so things are going well with the bat. Unfortunately, he is really struggling in the field, making 5 errors this week alone to put him at 8 on the season. He's also been caught stealing 5 times this season, with 5 successful steals. So -- he has some areas to improve. Juan Portes also had a good week with the bat, going 12-for-39 on the week to put him at .252 with a .591 OPS for the season.

Who's Not: Matt Betsill went 3-for-22 this week to drop his batting average to .140 with a .359 OPS. Toby Gardenhire also struggled, going 4-for-20 to settle in at .182/.414. Yikes to both!

1.) Erik Lis - LF(16), 1B(8), DH(3) [LF(6), 1B(3), DH(1)]
2.) Dwayne White - RF(17), LF(3), DH(3) [RF(6), LF(1), DH(1)]
3.) Eli Tintor - CF(19), RF(6) [CF(8), RF(3)]
4.) Edward Ovalle - LF(10), CF(10), RF(3), DH(1) [LF(4), CF(3), RF(2)]

Who's Hot: Erik Lis went 12-for-39 on the week and is leading the team with a .299 batting average and .857 OPS on the season along with a couple of HR's.

Who's Not: Eli Tintor (9-for-37) and Dwayne White (7-for-30) both had mediocre weeks, but Edward Ovalle had a truly bad week, going 4-for-33 on the week to bring his season batting average to .198 with a .586 OPS.
