In the Pros

Carlos Torres, New York Mets (MLB)
The right-hander, who has been with the Mets all season, appeared in four games last week, allowing three earned runs in 5.0 innings (5.40 ERA). All three earned runs, however, came in his final two outings of the week, two in a loss at San Francisco on June 6 and then one in 1 2/3 innings against the Giants in the series finale on June 8.

Torres enters the upcoming week leading New York with 33 appearances this season, while posting a 2.84 ERA (12er, 38.0ip), striking out 42, and walking 15. The 33 appearances already match his career-high, a mark he set last season after earning a promotion to New York in mid-June. Since making his Mets debut on June 16, 2013, Torres has a 3.26 ERA (45er, 124.1ip) in 66 games.


Evan Marshall, Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB)
The first-year Major Leaguer made three appearances last week, allowing one earned run in 2 1/3 innings. In his first appearance of the week, he struck out two while allowing one hit in a scoreless inning at Colorado on June 3, which he followed up by holding Atlanta scoreless in his next appearance on June 6. In his final appearance of the week, Marshall allowed a walk, back-to-back base hits – the last of which scored a run – and another walk before striking out Gerald Laird with the bases loaded in his 1/3 of an inning pitched.

Since getting the call-up to the Majors on May 6, Marshall is 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA (3er, 15.0ip), 16 strikeouts, and seven walks. It was not until his eighth career Major League appearance that he allowed an earned run.


Jared Goedert, Buffalo Bisons (Triple-A, International League, Toronto Blue Jays)
The third baseman capped a week in which he hit .375 (9-for-24) by going 3-for-3 on June 8 vs. Syracuse, bringing his season average to .285 (51-for-179) in 49 games. All nine of his hits last week were singles while he also drew two walks and stole a base – his second steal of the season. Goedert has six home runs and 27 RBI this season, which are both the second-most on Buffalo.


A.J. Morris, Indianapolis Indians (Triple-A, International League, Pittsburgh)
After going 5-1 with a 1.64 ERA (10er, 55.0ip) in 13 appearances (eight starts) with Double-A Altoona, Morris earned his first career promotion to Triple-A last week. Morris, who is in his first season with the Pirates organization, made his Triple-A debut on June 7 at Lehigh Valley, allowing three runs (two earned) in six innings while striking out five and walking three in a losing decision.

Prior to his promotion, Morris had made six straight starts for Altoona – after starting the season primarily as a reliever – and went 4-1 with a 1.60 ERA over the six-game stretch. In his last two starts at Double-A, he struck out a season-high six in each appearance.


Nate Tenbrink, Tacoma Rainiers (Triple-A, Pacific Coast League, Seattle)
Did not play last week; been on the disabled list since April 5.


Justin Bloxom, Harrisburg Senators (Double-A, Eastern League, Washington)

Kyle Hunter, Jackson Generals (Double-A, Southern League, Seattle)
Hunter allowed a combined three runs, all coming in his final outing of the week, in 4.0 innings last week. The left-hander held Huntsville to one unearned run in 2 2/3 innings on June 3 as he picked up his first win of the season, but on June 7 at Birmingham, Hunter allowed three runs on five hits in 1 1/3 innings.


Nick Martini, Springfield Cardinals (Double-A, Texas League, St. Louis)
After batting .245 (46-for-188) with 16 extra-base hits and 22 RBI in 47 games with Class A Advanced Palm Beach, Martini was promoted to Double-A for the first time in his career in late May. In two games last week with Double-A Springfield, the center fielder went 1-for-5 with a walk. His one hit came in his first game of the week on June 3 at Arkansas.


James Allen, Bakersfield Blaze (Class A Advanced, California League, Cincinnati)
The right-hander appeared in two games out of the bullpen last week, surrendering two runs in 3 1/3 innings while striking out five and walking one. In his first game of the week on June 3 vs. Stockton, Allen allowed three hits and fanned three in 2.0 shutout innings in Bakersfield’s 6-2 loss. On June 6 at Rancho Cucamonga, Allen stranded a pair of inherited runners in the seventh inning, but in the eighth, he allowed a two-out, two-run home run to Kyle Seager in a 7-3 loss.


Wade Hinkle, Inland Empire 66ers (Class A Advanced, California League, Los Angeles Angels)
After starting the week hitless in his first two games, Hinkle racked up four hits in his last four games, going 4-for-11 with two doubles, a home run, and three RBI over the stretch. His home run, the sixth of his campaign, occurred on June 7 at Lake Elsinore, a two-run shot that helped the 66ers build a 4-1 lead. The next day, on June 8, Hinkle drove in a run with a double in a three-run first inning that helped Inland Empire secure a 3-1 win over Lake Elsinore. While five of his six games played last week were on the road, Hinkle is batting .407 in 18 home games this season (.261 in 26 road games).


Jared King, Savannah Sand Gnats (Class A, South Atlantic League, New York Mets)
Did not play; has been on the disabled list since May 12.
