2012 Farmstros Five- Week 2

Here is the Farmstros Five for the week of April 12-18, 2012:

The Top Performer:

Luis Cruz, 21, LHP, Lexington. The Legends called on Cruz two times this week to pitch in long relief of a struggling starter, and Cruz came through twice. In the two outings, he allowed four hits and one run, striking out nine in eight innings pitched.

The Next Three:

Erik Castro, 24, IF, Lancaster. Castro went 9 for 20 for the week. He had two doubles, three home runs and eight RBI.

Jose Cisnero, 23, RHP, Corpus Christi. Cisnero pitched six scoreless innings for the Hooks. He allowed three hits and struck out seven.

Bobby Doran, 23, RHP, Lancaster. Doran was all about the sevens in the California League this week. The JetHawk threw seven scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and striking out seven.

The Farmstros Five #5:

Usually, the top five performers in the system are pretty clear. However, this week three players made the decision difficult, so I turn the final selection over to the real experts- The Farmstros Village. Please vote for the Farmstros Five #5 below.

Jacob Goebbert, 24, OF, Corpus Christi. Goebbert was 9 for 25 with three doubles, one triple, one home run and seven RBI.

Dallas Keuchel, 24, LHP, Oklahoma City. Keuchel continued a solid start to his first full AAA season. He made two starts, pitched 14 innings and allowed nine hits and two runs, while striking out eight.

Nick Tropeano, 21, RHP, Lexington. Tropeano pitched six scoreless innnigs, allowing four hits and striking out eight for the Legends.
