7/3 MiLB Recap: Alen Hanson hits 14th HR

Chris Leroux pitched two scoreless innings in what will probably be his final rehab appearance. A decision must now be made by Thursday on if he will join the club, or be designated for assignment. In 14 1/3 innings over the past month, he has a 3.77 ERA with a 10:6 K:BB ratio.

Jordy Mercer was 2 for 3 with a double and a home run, his 4th of the season. He’s just 7 for 34 (.206) since his short stint in the Majors.

Starling Marte was 1 for 4 with a walk. Marte doubled his season walk total thanks to 10 free passes in the month of June. He now has two through his first three games in July. That was perhaps the single-most thing he truly needed to work on while in Triple-A. He seems to be working on it.

Brandon Cumpton pitched five innings, giving up just one run. He didn’t strike out a batter and gave up four walks, though. His ERA has dropped down to 3.13 on the season.

Robbie Grossman went 3 for 4 and is hitting .432/.571/.676 in his last ten games. He posted a .956 OPS in June and is well on his way to a good start to July.
