This week in Dutchies around the world: Jonathan Schoop, Jurickson Profar, Juremi Profar, Darren Seferina, Eugene Helder and Hendrick Clementina.
Even though the Baltimore Orioles are just hovering around .500 recently, Jonathan Schoop is having a good season. The 25-year old shortstop from Willemstad Curaçao is hitting a respectable .292, well above hit career average of .257.
In the month of June, Jonathan had two multi-homer games. On June 6, he hit two home runs in four at-bats and drove in three runs vs the 6-5 win over the Red Sox.
In another offensive outburst on June 17, Jonathan went 4 for 5 with for RBI and a total of ten bases.
At second base, Jonathan committed nine errors in 69 games (.975 fielding percentage).
After a short stint with the Texas Rangers earlier this month, due to several injuries of infielders, Jurickson is back with the Round Rock Express.
In five games and fourteen at-bats with the Rangers, Jurickson collected just two hits. But since his return at AAA, he is hitting very well again. In his last four games, he went 5 for 17 (.294).
The 24-year old utility player from Willemstad has played multiple positions. One at first base and two at second base in which he did not commit an error. Strange enough, he committed the most errors (five) at his natural position of shortstop (.964 fielding percentage).
At bat, the younger brother of Jurickson is slumping lately. In his last ten games with the Frisco RoughRiders, he hit just .200, making his average drop from .271 to .260. Like his brother, Juremi is used as a utility player. So far he has played six games at first base with one error committed, eight games at second with also one error and forty-five games at third base with three errors committed.
The 23-year old infielder of the Palm Beach Cardinals is having a decent season at bat. His batting average is steadily hovering around .260 (currently .264). with a total of 15 extra-base hits (one home run, seven triples and doubles).
In forty-one games (26 at second base, 14 at third base and 1 at first), Darren committed five errors.
Last week, Darren had his best offensive outing of the season as he went 3 for 3 with a run scored, a walk and a stolen base.
After a short stint at AAA with the Tacoma Rainiers, Eugene was sent to A-Short Season Everett to play for the local AquaSox. In seven games and thirty at-bats, Eugene is struggling a bit as he collected only six hits.
Even though his player page tells us he is a second baseman, the 21-year old Aruban has played six of the seven games at third base. At both positions, Eugene is still perfect.
After spending the previous three seasons at the Dodgers Summer League level and Rookie League level, the catcher from Curaçao has been promoted to high Rookie level (Pioneer League). With the Ogden Raptors, the 20-year old, has played two games so far. In his debut with the Raptors, Hendrick went 4 for 5 with four runs batted in. Last night, he went 2 for 4 with one RBI. After two games his BA stands at .667.
Behind the dish, Hendrick allowed one stolen base so far.
