Roberto Gomez was named the Rays Minor League Pitcher of the Month in June. The
Hot Rods were 6-0 when the young right-handed Gomez took the mound during the month. The 22-
year-old Dominican was 5-0 in June with a 1.34 ERA. Gomez’s success in June was
no different from the rest of his season. He is 8-2 with a 2.90 ERA. Opponents are hitting
just .253 off Gomez and he has fanned 57 while only walking 33. The Hot Rods and manager Brady Williams have been able to rely on Gomez this season when they
need a well-pitched game.
Cameron Seitzer has been on a roll in the past ten games. Since July 3 he is
14-for-38 giving him a .368 batting average and three RBIs. The Hot Rods first baseman
who bats from the left side, has vastly improved his average since the month of May
when it was just .256 and he is now hitting .304. The son of former major
leaguer and current Kansas City Royals hitting coach, Kevin Seitzer, Cameron shows off
a solid line drive hitting swing. He is hitting .297/.379/.417 on the season with 26
doubles and 30 RBIs. Cameron’s 30 RBIs are no surprise given his .364 AVG with
runners in scoring position.
Ryan Brett has seem to hit a slight bump in the road, going just 9-for-40 in the past ten
games giving him a .225 AVG. Despite the low average over the past few games
Brett still has managed to add seven RBIs to his season total along with six stolen bases
while only getting caught stealing once. Brett’s July batting average of .283 may be
the lowest he’s had so far this season, but it is still very impressive. On the season the
Hot Rods second baseman is hitting .310/.363/.418 with five homeruns, 27 RBIs and
32 stolen bases. Brett continues to be dominating on the base paths this season, stealing
bases at will.
