Two of these three games that were played — both of the game ones listed here — were completions of games that had previously been suspended, which explains why some of the at bat totals are low, and explains why Hernandez played three different positions. And speaking of Hernandez, he had the best day of anyone here at the plate. He got a six-figure bonus out of Venezuela, and is a converted pitcher per Sox Prospects, but has had a solid year at the plate. His .245 batting average is certainly ugly, but he’s drawing a bunch of walks with a .352 OBP, and his power has been solid with a .161 Isolated Power.

As for the pitchers, it was Valera leading the way. He wasn’t actually perfect as the line may suggest, as he threw a wild pitch to complete a strikeout, and then threw another wild pitch after that. But otherwise, he was indeed perfect. It’s been a tough year for Valera, who has mostly pitched out of the bullpen and has an ERA of 6.75. That said, he’s been better of late, and in September he has a 2.13 ERA with 19 strikeouts in 12 23 innings.
