Kevin Plawecki

Matthew Bowman – Las Vegas. Bowman has allowed just two earned runs over his last 4 starts dating back to July 31st. Over his last 27.1 innings, he’s pitched to an ERA of 0.66 while allowing 19 hits, walking 5 and striking out 28 batters.

Kevin Plawecki – Las Vegas. Entering Sunday’s action, Plawecki was riding an 8 game hitting streak during which he was hitting .467 (14 for 30). In 95 games between Binghamton and Las Vegas, he is hitting .311 with 9 HR and 60 RBI.

Daniel Muno – Las Vegas. Muno was also hot with the bat entering Sunday’s action, on a 5 game hitting streak which included 3 separate 3 hit games. During this streak, he was batting .478 (11 for 23), scoring 4 runs with 2 HR and 9 RBI.

Matt Reynolds – Las Vegas. Reynolds had a 6 game hitting streak snapped on Saturday. During his streak, he was only hitting .500 (13 for 26) while scoring 6 runs. In 118 games between Binghamton and Las Vegas, he is hitting .349 with 156 hits.

Steven Matz – Binghamton. Matz continues to bring it. While he only has a 2-2 record over his last 4 starts, he’s pitched to a 0.36 ERA, allowing just 1 earned run in 25 innings. Over his last 4 starts, he’s allowed just 19 hits while walking 5 and striking out 22 to the tune of a 0.96 WHIP.

Juan Centeno – Binghamton. The Binghamton catcher is on an 8 game hitting streak, batting .467 (14 for 30) with 7 RBI over that stretch. He was demoted to AA when Taylor Teagarden came off the DL and ended up on the Las Vegas roster but he may very well be a September call up.
