The Pacific Coast League announced Monday that El Paso Chihuahuas' first baseman Jamie Romak and Reno Aces' right-hander Zack Godley have been named the League's Player and Pitcher of the Week for April 17-23. Romak slugged five home runs, while Godley took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his lone start.
Giants No. 2 prospect Christian Arroyo is thriving in Triple-A with a .442 average in 13 games. His potent bat could prompt a big league callup, if the Giants can find a position for him.
Harrison Musgrave didn't enter Spring Training as a candidate for the fifth spot in the Rockies' rotation, but the Isotopes left-hander is putting himself in position for his first big league callup.
The Fresno Grizzlies 5-3 win over Reno on April 9 gave skipper Tony DeFrancesco his 1000th career PCL win - the most in the League's modern era (since 1958). DeFrancesco, who has also managed Sacramento and Oklahoma City, has enjoyed a legendary 14-year PCL career that has featured eight division titles and four PCL Championships.
Pacific Coast League Historical Society founder and President Emeritus Dick Beverage and former Seattle Rainiers and Oakland Oaks first baseman Les Scarsella have been inducted into the PCL's Hall of Fame as the two members of the Class of 2017.
Slugging Colorado Springs outfielder Lewis Brinson (Brewers) is one of a number of exciting young players scheduled to start the 2017 season in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League.
