Pitcher:
Caleb Smith, 22, LHP, A
7 IP, 7 K, 0 BB, 2 H, 0 ER
Notable: Back-to-back MLPW wins

After striking out 13 in his previous week’s appearance, Charleston’s Caleb Smith gave an encore with seven scoreless (6 inning start and a 1 inning cameo).

Since we wrote about him last week, Smith has lowered his ERA to 0.84 in 21.1 IP — the best mark in the South Atlantic League.

Hitter:
Kyle Roller, 26, LHB 1B, AA
.471/.526/.706 in 19 PA
Notable: Back-to-back MLPW wins

After a week highlighted by smashing four home runs, Roller followed that up by hitting .471/.526/.706 (1 HR). Yes, he’s old for Double-A, as we wrote last week. However, he is killing the baseball, and leads the Eastern League in nearly every offensive statistic. His line for the season is .419/.493/.887 in 71 PA.

And since he’s old for the level, the Yankees have to be thinking of promoting him soon. At this point, you just have to see what he could contribute.
