Buffalo Bulls Playing Professional Baseball

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Steve Geltz - Tampa Bay

Geltz's role this season has been one of very short relief in key situations. As such there have not been a lot of opportunities for the former UB hurler to earn wins but he got it done this weekend against Boston.

Geltz put down the only batter he faced and the Ray's put two on the board in the top of the 8th.

Tom Murphy - Albuquerque (AAA)

Murphy is quickly becoming a fixture in AAA.

Trevor Story wins Pacific Coast League player of the week - The Denver Post
At Albuquerque, Murphy teams with Dustin Garneau and Ryan Casteel in handling the catcher role. Garneau, a 19th-round pick by the Rockies in the 2009 draft, is having his best year. He has 53 RBIs in addition to 14 home runs.

Casteel is on a rehabilitation assignment. He was hitting .354 this year in 26 games.

The Murphy-Garneau-Casteel combination allows director of development Zach Wilson to claim they represent the best minor-league depth at catcher the Rockies have ever had.

Murphy is making himself right at home with the Isotopes. So far he is batting .303 with a home run and five RBIs.

Jason Kanzler - Fort Myers (A+)

Kanzler had a great start to the week but his bat cooled during a double header over the weekend.

Even without hits he managed to do some damage.

Mike Burke - Delmarva (A)

Burke put up two good performances this week. In total he pitched 5 innings, struck out six batters while walking one and giving up a single hit.

Nick Sinay - Bluefield (ROK)

After he cleaned up last week the Blue Jays kept Sinay on the bench this week. He eventually got a few at bats but it was not one of his better weeks.
