Astros Minor League Recap: Players of the Week

Alright, let's do this again, it's prospect day.  Start digging in the back of your mind for your memory of who's been consistently in the recaps this week and start looking up stats to solidify your decsion!  Who is your Players of the week?


Hitter of the Week:

There are actually quite a few candidates for this week, and I'm not one to go with consencus.  My pick for the week is...Brandon Wikoff!  Were you expecting that?  I wasn't!  The 23 year old short-stop has had a phenomenal week.  He went 15-26 with a double and homerun while walking and strikeout out just one time each.  The power isn't there but when you hit for that kind of average, you have take recogntion.  That power may be why you don't choose him, but that is a great stat line.


Pitcher of the Week:

This is a simple pick, Jordan Lyles.  No surprise here really since he dominated in his one start this week.  He allowed five hits and one walk over six innings while sitting eight hitters down by strikeouts.  That is a dominant outing and his second shutout performance in a row.  Lyles is starting to turn the corner in AAA and people are taking notice.  My only fear is that Houston will try to get him to ride a streak into Houston before he needs to.

Lancaster won 4-3

  • Robert Donovan-6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO, 10/1 GO/AO-The groundball rate is ridiculous.  I saw on twitter that he possibly has started throwing a splitter in the last few weeks.
