Astros Minor League Recap: POTW

It's Sunday so you know what that means!  Players of the Week!

Hitter of the Week: David Flores

I prefer giving this award to the real prospects but he had a very nice week.  JD Martinez would have been my other choice with his ridiculous walk total for the past week.  But, Flores was the most exciting player at the plate for Lancaster this week with his four home runs (three in one game).  He collected twelve hits, four of those falling for doubles as well, and two walks while striking out just twice. 

Pitcher of the Week: Jonas Dufek

I also thought about giving it to Folty given his struggles for the season and then breaking out a nine strikeout performance, but it doesn't top twelve shutout innings from Dufek.  Dufek allowed just six hits and walked two while sitting down seven on strikes.  He has allowed nine runs on the season and those were in two starts while his other four have been shutouts.  He's been a nice surprise in Tri-City this season but he's going to have to strikeout a few more guys if he's going to make it as a starter.
