Not much to see here, but it's certainly better than the Lowell numbers. The player who has the best numbers out of the Wilmington hitters would be 2B Scott Youngbauer who had a decent .259 batting average. Better than some, for example, Mark Bellhorn.

Brant Ust has an intersting line. His batting average is .217 with a team-leading 143 strikeouts and only 19 walks. Bryan Pritz is the only player on the team with an on-base percentage over .300.

Be surprised! There are actually some decent numbers for the Wilmington pitchers. Edgar Martinez has an MLE ERA of 3.41, a number the Red Sox would have loved to have in their bullpen last season. Martinez also backs his ERA with a strong 1.19 WHIP and .189 BAA.

Randy Beam is another pitcher with strong MLE's. His ERA clocked in at a respectable 3.86 with a 1.36 WHIP and .208 BAA. Anibal Sanchez, who was part of a trade to Florida for Josh Beckett, had a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and a .208 BAA.
