MLB Rebels (week 10)

[ED: BeardedGinger, whose beard rivals that of Socrates himself, again deserves our thanks and praises for putting together this look at Ole Miss Rebel baseballers and their MLB seasons thus far.]

I never know how to begin one of these weekly reports, so here it is.

Week 10 was a good week for 4 of the 5 current Rebels in the Pros.

Lance Lynn (Cardinals)- Feel like I am getting repetitive with Lance as he wins again this week. Pitched 6 innings against Houston allowing only 2 ERs on 6 hits. He now has a 2.66 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP. Opponents are only hitting .218 against him. All of these numbers are still at the top of the Majors. I don't think anyone (even Lynn) thought he would be 9-2 during his first year in the rotation.

Zack Cozart (Reds)- Zack continues to swing the bat pretty well as he went 8 of 26 (.308) over the past week with 1 HR (on Sunday Night Baseball), 1 RBI, and 5 runs scored. He is producing very well at the top of the lineup with a .300 OBP for the year. He now has 7 HRs on the year and is projected to finish with 19. He also has 15 RBIs. Not too shabby for a SS in his first full year in the Majors.

Chris Coghlan (Marlins)- For the most part, we are around 70 games into the season, you are, at this point, who you are going to be. For Coghlan, that isn't a good thing. His bat still continues to struggle as he went 2 of 11 (.182) over the past week. His current batting average is .151 with 1 HR and 10 RBIs. Not good for a former Rookie of the Year.

Seth Smith (A's)- Seth has seen his BA raise 42 points over the past week. He went 11 of 20 (.550) with 1 HR, 1 3B, 2 2Bs and 5 RBIs. On Monday, Seth went 4-5 missing the cycle by a HR. The A's are paying him over 2 million dollars and it looks like he might be turning his season around, let's hope he can continue to swing a hot bat. He is currently hitting .259 with 5 HRs and 17 RBIs. Seth also appeared on the "Weekend Top Plays" on sportscenter coming in at #6. He was playing LF (he is usually the DH) and robbed a player of a HR.

Alex Presley (Pirates)- In his first week back from the minors (called up June 5th), Alex went 8 of 27 with 1 HR, 1 2B, 1 3B, and 2 RBIs. Not sure if he got his confidence back in the minors or if being sent down motivated him. One way or the other, this is a good way to get back on the right track. He is currently hitting .234 with 3 HRs, 9 RBIs, and 6 SB.
