Players to watch

RoughRiders

Every starting pitcher. There really isn’t a team that can match-up with Frisco from start to start. Cole Winn and AJ Alexy are just a couple that have been dominant. Cole Uvila and Nick Snyder are excellent coming out of the bullpen. Cole Uvila has 8 Saves in eight opportunities. Nick Snyder just got promoted to Double-A recently but I’ve seen him reach up to 99 mph. Think of another

Josh Stowers: Stowers was part of the Rougned Odor trade. He’s got some power that he hid in the month of May but has really showed it in June. He’s hit 7 of his 8 home runs, and has a 1.045 OPS in June.

Josh Jung: Jung has impressed early into his season. He’s played in 10 games and is hitting .293/.341/.537/.877 with 3 home runs, 12 RBI, 3 walks and 9 strikeouts.

RockHounds

Nick Allen: the number 3 ranked prospect in the A’s system. He is hitting .333/.383/.483/.866 in 147 at bats.

Logan Davidson: ranked as the Athletics number 5 prospect. Over his last 5 games he is hitting .444/.500/.444/.944 with 1 RBI and two walks.
