Week in Review- Vancouver Canadians (A)

Week of August 15th-21st

2nd Half Record: 10-17 4th and last place in the West division of the Northwest league, 8.0 games back

Overall Record: 34-31

Statistical Summary: The same player just keeps on producing for the Canadians, and he doesn’t look like he is going to let up in the near future. Jonathan Berti, the 559th overall pick in the 2011 rule 4 draft, or first-year player draft is ripping up the Northwest league, and he is doing it in every facet of the game. Berti is batting .310, while driving in 20 and stealing 20 bases in 206 plate appearances this season. To go along with his remarkable offence is his marvellous defence. Berti has 5.02 RF/G (putouts+ assists /GP) this season, to compare that to a Gold Glover’s numbers, Robinson Cano had a RF/G of 4.89 last season when he won a gold glove. With Aaron Hill being traded today, and Kelly Johnson struggling, Berti might be with the Jays in the near future, not next year, but maybe in 2013 or mid 2014.

Games Summary: The Vancouver Canadians’ elimination number is down to 4 games after they went 4-3 this past week, and fell 1 more game out of the division race to eight games back. The Canadians took two out of three from the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, outscoring them by only 1 run, 13-12. The Canadians’ playoff hopes are over, but it’s a good time to be a fan of the Canadians as they always play exciting ball.

Player of the Week: Jonathan Jones,OF: 10-31, .322 AVG, 3 RBI’s, 2 BB’s, 2 SB’s

Pitcher of the Week: Phillip Brua, #6, P: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 0 BB, 1.00 WHIP, 0.00 ERA, 3 GP
