Another week of baseball is in the books. Let’s look at some news and notes. I will start with a few players who have been hot in the Astros system and then look at some season numbers.

Who’s hot?

Justin Dirden – Another week, another list with Dirden on it. Might as well keep it on repeat. The lefty played his first week of Triple-A ball and hit well batting .364 with 3 2B, HR, 8 RBI. He leads the Astros system in doubles (35) and RBI (81) this season.

Joey Loperfido – Loperfido has been swinging it well for a while now and this week he was great. The 23-year-old hit .471 with 3 2B, 2 HR, 4 RBI in 5 games. He is now slashing .342/.447/.573 over his last 46 games and has a .908 OPS this season.

David Hensley – Like Loperfido, Hensley has been swinging it well and had a really good week hitting .440 with 4 2B, HR, 7 RBI. He has 18 walks over his last 15 games and 74 walks in 100 games this season. He has a .893 OPS overall this year.

Shay Whitcomb – Whitcomb put together a strong week for the Hooks hitting .450 with 2 2B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 3 SB in 6 games. He has struggled at times this year but has seem some hot stretches throughout the season too.

Zach Dezenzo – Dezenzo was a 12th round round pick this year and had a great first week in pro ball hitting .368 with a double and 2 HR. Solid start to his professional baseball career.
