Four Dodgers Earn Player of The Week Awards
?Etherton, who spent almost the entirety of May in extended Spring Training, demonstrated his desire to spend the rest of the season in a rotation. He gave up just one hit and struck out five through his first four innings against the Reno Aces on Sunday. But he only got better as the middle innings ticked by, striking out two in the fifth, three in the sixth and another in the seventh. The Dodgers farmhand earned his first win of the 2010 season and lowered his ERA to 4.24.
?John Lindsey, Albuquerque
Lindsey, who leads the Minors in batting average and is second in hits and slugging, notches his second PCL Player of the Week award in 2010. The MiLB veteran added big-time power to his impressive output this week, doubling his season home run total. The display started on Monday, when he went yard at home against Reno. Closing out that series on Wednesday and Thursday, Lindsey added two more homers. On Saturday, he punished Memphis with six RBIs, knocking another roundtripper. He homered again on the final day of the week, making it the second time in five days he crushed a longball in consecutive games.
?Trayvon Robinson, Chattanooga
Robinson taught a lesson in economy this week. It took just six hits spread over six games for the Dodgers prospect to earn himself a spot among the Southern League's leaders for the week in homers, RBIs, runs scored and stolen bases. One key to his success? He was also among league leaders in bases-on-balls, reaching four times via the free pass. He homered twice, walked and scored three times on Monday, and although he had only two hits over his next four games, he got aboard in each of them, stealing bases in three consecutive matchups. He homered and singled on Sunday to put an exclamation point on the week.
? Ethan Martin, Inland Empire
?Ethan Martin, the Dodgers' first pick in the 2008 Draft, threw his first professional complete game on Thursday, shutting out Bakersfield over nine masterful innings. Martin gave up a single to the first batter of the game, a double in the third inning and another single in the fourth inning but otherwise held the Blaze hitless. Even late in the tilt, Martin showed no signs of tiring. He fanned three of the last five batters he faced.
