BOXSCORE

Players of the Day – Jerry Sands, OF and Andrew Edge, C

Sands has been the victim of bad luck since his return to Albuquerque. In spite of a ridiculously low .270 BABIP, he’s maintained an overall OPS of over .900, tho the mark dipped as low as .704 in July. This month, he’s not getting on base much but he’s hitting for power as evidenced by his .615 SLG in August. If he does get another shot in September, hopefully Jerry can make the most of it.

Edge isn’t much of a prospect, given the fact that he’s still in rookie ball at age 23. The 24th rounder from a year ago has employed an all or nothing approach in Ogden which has resulted in high home run totals but even higher strikeout totals. His 8 longballs, along with 2 triples and 10 doubles, have led to a .573 SLG. However, he’s struck out 67 times in 34 games and has drawn just 7 walks, leading to a .302 OBP. Sacrificing some power for some on base ability would be a move in the right direction.
