I have to send a big thanks out to conroestro for pinch-hitting for me the past week as I dealt with finals. He did a great job filling in and provided some great highlights. I've already messed with him on twitter, but I'm gonna have to call him out at TCB because that's what we do. He highlighted Jiovanni Mier's great start to the season, and boom! Jio pulls a hammy stretching a double into a triple. Blames on you buddy!

Let's see if I can safely highlight a player once again and produce another big game like I did with Jonathan Singleton! (See what I did there? Point out his failed highlight while boasting about mine? #Giggity)

Delino DeShields Jr. hit a monster shot over a rather tall left field wall last night to display a little bit of that power potential that was talked about when he was drafted. While an OPS of .712 is not anything to get excited about to start out for the season, it is a solid improvement over the .627 he posted last year. He's hitting for a better average and drawing more walks. He's even striking out a little less. The sample size is still small but it's good to see about a fifty point improvement in his OBP. His SLG% is also up, but it's mostly due to his improved batting average as his ISO his about the same after his HR last night. The biggest improvement this season is effectiveness on the basepaths. He has stolen 18 bases but has yet to be caught. That's a huge improvement over last year as he was caught stealing 11 times and stole 30 bases. He's on pace to easily beat that this season.
