Rain limited the G-Nats to five completed games last week, with a 2-3 record. The elimination number is now 21 with less than a month to go and a six-game deficit to overcome. In terms of usage (arguably the only reliable indicator in the short-season leagues), 18-y.o. Blake Perkins (2nd Rd. HS pick) has appeared in 30 of 34 games thus far while 20-y.o. Maximo Valerio has logged the most innings at 29.
A 4-2 week has improved the D-Nats to 26-28 and third place in the Boca Chica North division. Usage update: Nineteen-year-old Venezuelan Aldrem Corredor has appeared in 50 of 54 games while 18-y.o. Yonathan Ramirez has made 11 starts and logged the most innings pitched (54⅔).
