Shortstop Wladimir Sutil has had a good month on the basepaths, picking up five of his 14 total steals in July. The 24-year old has also scored 19 runs in 97 plate appearances with a line of .287/.375/.345. Surprisingly, Sutil has also grounded into three double plays though he's also struck out only five times.
First baseman Mark Ori had a good weekend, going 8 for 13 in three games. Ori is batting .310/.355/.414 in 63 plate appearances with six doubles and 15 strikeouts. Ori is older at 25 and hasn't shown much power, so I'm not sure how much value he has in the larger scheme. Still, he can hit at the higher levels of the minors, so Ori has proven useful.
Outfielder Collin DeLome also had a huge weekend, going 7 for 9 on Saturday and Sunday with two doubles. The 22-year old now has a monthly line of .321/.303/.513 with seven doubles, one triple and two home runs. DeLome is also third on the team in hits with 25 in July.
Righthander Sergio Perez bounced back from his disastrous one inning outing on Monday. Perez threw seven innings, giving up four hits and three runs (two earned) while striking out three and walking two. Perez also gave up a home run for the fourth straight game wbut posted his highest game score in that stretch with a 60. Perez got his highest Defense Efficiency Ratio at .850, which helped him give up only four hits.
