Astros Minor League Recap:POTW

New, 91 comments

It's another Sunday, and you know what that means!  It's the day you scurry through player pages and previous recaps to pick out who you think were the top performers of this week!

Pitcher Of the Week: Jose Cisnero

There are a few guys you can hand this out to, Dallas Keuchel is one of them.  But, I'm not going to deny Cisnero with his eleven strikeouts over six innings with just two (earned) runs allowed.  Oh, and he walked just one batter.  It was a great start for him and I really hope he continues.  He has a lot of potential with his fastball being one of the best out there.  In fact, I've seen now that it gets up to 94 with amazing movement.

Jose Altuve Award: Kody Hinze

Yes, the Hitter of the Week has been officially renamed the Jose Altuve Award!  One of these days we'll have an Altuve-esque pitcher and they will take over the pitching name.  It didn't take much to convince me that Hinze deserved this award when I saw he had two hits in every game this week other than last night.  One "word" came to my mind when I saw it too, "Altuve-esque!"  He went 13-25 with a double and three home runs.  He struck out just two time while walking four times.  The only bad news is a caught stealing.  Sample sizes aside, he is actually hitting a higher OPS than at Lancaster!
