  1. 1. Justin Bloxom 49…with his high walk total, Bloxom’s on-base percentage is over 100 points higher than his batting average
    2. Jose Lozada 10
    3. Jerad Head 8
    4. Sandy Leon 2
    5. Steven Souza 81.25% (13/16)…despite Brian Goodwin leading the team with 17 SBs, he has also been caught ten times
    6. Paul Demny 9
    7. Nate Karns 85
    8. Caleb Clay 7…the Senators have hit the most batters in the entire Eastern League
    9. Blake Treinen 8

    11. Matt Grace .208
    12. Tyler Herron 68.5%
    13. Aaron Barrett 24.5%…there’s some disagreement what to call it, but Barrett’s hard breaking ball (as pitching coach Paul Menhart insists), is plain filthy
    14. 8 (Marcos Frias, Sandy Leon, Jose Lozada, Randolph Oduber, Wilson Ramos, Carlos Rivero, Francisco Soriano, and Jimmy VanOstrand)
    15. Bryce Harper (20 years old)…Harper bested pitchers Brian Rauh and Robbie Ray by one year
