Jacob Ramos Player of the Week 6

Turks pitcher Jacob Ramos fired four shutout innings and earned a victory last week to garner Turks Player of the Week honors. Ramos used a debilitating fastball and slider combination to strike out eight of his 15 batters faced, while allowing just two hits and two walks over that span. He’s been lights out in his last five appearances as the electric right-hander has thrown 8.2 shutout innings and struck out 15 after a couple of rough early season outings.

Bryan Arias Player of Week 5

Congratulations to Bryan Arias for being named Turks Player of the Week 5.  Arias led the Valley League in home runs (2) and RBIs (7) last week and he did so in about a 30-minute span. The UTSA product mashed two long balls and seven RBIs in a 10-5 win over Winchester. Arias ripped a two-run blast in the first inning and a grand slam in the second inning as he crowned himself our Turks Player of the Week with a dominant performance against the Royals. 

Tony Beam Player of the Week 4

Congratulations to Tony Beam for being named Turks Player of the Week 4. After a slow start to the season, Tony Beam has been tearing the cover off the ball the past three weeks. The right-handed swinger is hitting .455 with a team-leading five RBIs in the past seven days. Beam is an infielder’s nightmare as opposing third basemen and shortstops are becoming accustomed to watching helplessly as the powerful catcher scorches base hits in between them. 

John Gregory Player of the Week 3

Congratulations to John Gregory for being named Turks Player of Week 3. The rising Longwood sophomore John Gregory proved to be a serviceable weapon in the closer role for the Turks last week. The left-handed pitcher fired six innings of relief without allowing an earned run, while striking out 10 and picking up two saves. When coupled with Davis Kirkpatrick, a dominant right-handed pitcher, Gregory provides the Turks with a frighteningly effective back end of the bullpen. 

On the season Gregory has pitched 19.2 innings with a 1-0 record and 2 saves posting a 2.74 era.

Ty Andrus Player of the Week 2

Congratulations to outfielder Ty Andrus being named Turks Player of the Week 2.  Andrus (Wingate) tied for the team lead in hits, runs scored, and RBIs in the Turks’ past seven contests. Andrus smacked six hits, scored four runs and drove in three, while covering endless amounts of ground in centerfield. Despite not having quite the record they want, the Turks can’t ask for much more out of their leadoff man.
