2012 Farmstros Five- Week #6

Here is the Farmstros Five for the week of May 10-16, 2012:

The Top Performer:

Paul Clemens, 24, RHP, Oklahoma City.  Clemens allowed only three hits and no runs in his only start of the week.  He struck out six in seven innings.

The Next Three:

Luis Cruz, 21, LHP, Lexington. Cruz makes this list for a third straight week and the fourth time over-all this season.  In his only start of the week, he went 6 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing 5 hits and striking out nine.  In his last four starts, Cruz has pitched 25 1/3 innings, allowed 18 hits, struck out 25 and posted an ERA of 0.71.

Jimmy Paredes, 23, 2B, Oklahoma City.  Paredes was 10 for 17 on the week with one double, one home run, six runs scored, five RBI and four stolen bases.

Ross Seaton, 22, RHP, Corpus Christi. Seaton pitched six scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and striking out two.

Farmstros Five #5:

This week there are four  candidates for the final slot in the Farmstros Five.

Erik Castro, 24, IF, Lancaster. Castro was 9 for 21 with two doubles, one home run and five RBI.

Domingo Santana, 19, OF, Lancaster. Santana was 8 for 23 with two doubles, one triple, two home runs and seven RBI.  One of his home runs was a walk-off Grand Slam on Saturday night.

George Springer, 22, OF, Lancaster. Normally, Springer's four home runs in one night on Friday would have put him at the top of this list.  However, he was injured in Saturday's game and hasn't played since.  He ended the week 7 for 12 with one triple, four home runs and seven RBI.  Due to Springer's lack of playing time over the whole week, I leave his Farmstros Five fate in the hands of the Village.

Jose Valdez, 29, RHP, Oklahoma City. Valdez saved three of the RedHawks' five wins this week.  He retired eight batters without allowing a hit or a run.  He struck out three.

Who is the Farmstros Five #5 for Week 6?
