After a horrid start in 2037 during April and May, 18-27 overall the Stars have finally have a winning streak in June. So far in June Valencia is 10-4 and hopefully its a start of more winning months. The Stars have been rebuilding for the last 6-7 years and finally have a good solid team but all very young. The average age on this team is 24.92 so hopefully they all start to develop and become a strong team in the next few seasons.
Starting Pitcher Zhi-xin Chien has been hot the last 4 games.
Chien over that time is 3-1 with a 1.86 ERA. Chien is one of the vets on the team, as he has been on Valencia's roster for 6 seasons now. This is the first season that Chien has exclusively been a starter. In recent years he started out as a RP but has been doing both for the last few seasons. Overall in 2037 Chien is 5-5 4.32 ERA..In June he hopefully has turned the corner into a more productive starter. Chien numbers in June are 3-0 1.56 ERA...
SS Ángel Zalapa was out all of May but since he's been back is one reason the Stars are doing so well. Over the last 7 games Zalapa is hitting .440 and for the month of June Zalapa is hitting .327 3 homers and 10 RBI'S. Zalapa is only 21 was drafted 5th overall in 2033 draft and will be the future SS for many years with the Stars.
23 Year old LF Wilton Rivera has been on fire this whole year.
Rivera through May 28 had a 21 game hitting streak going. In the first week of JUNE Rivera won the FL Player of the Week. Rivera during that week was hit .409 while collecting 9 hits in 22 at-bats, 4 home runs and 11 RBIs. So far in 2037 Rivera is hitting .287 18 homers and has 40 RBI'S...Last season
Rivera hit 32 homers but a disappointing .232 batting average. Rivera is on the pace to hit 40 plus homers and drive in close to 100 RBI'S in 2037.
