Clearwater Threshers (3-4)
The name to continue watching at Clearwater is still Cornelius Randolph. He actually put together a semi-decent week that opened my eyes a bit more. He had two multi-hit games this week and brought his average above .200 for the first time this season.
Zach Coppola and Deivi Grullon continued to perform pretty well early on in the 2017 campaign. I am still not high on Coppola because of how many outfielders there are in front of him. However, Grullon is an unusual name at the catcher position. He is incredibly strong defensively and his .273 average and recent fourth homer provide the Phils with, at the very least, a trade chip moving forward.
There were really no exciting pitching performances to speak of last week. The closest Clearwater came to one was the promising start from Alberto Tirado. The only remaining half of the return on the Ben Revere trade had a strong start, tossing 5.2 innings, allowing only one run on eight hits and two walks. He struck out five and improved his ERA to a still unimpressive 5.38 for the season.
