July 5, 2013

Each week here at we'll take a look at former Rebels in the Major Leagues and update Rebel fans on how the individual players (and their respective teams) are performing in a race for a pennant and ultimately a World Championship. 

8 | Chris Coghlan | OF | Miami Marlins

Coghlan has been sidelined with a lower back strain, having been placed on the 15-day disabled list on June 9. He was batting .343 with four runs scored and nine RBI since moving into the everyday lineup on May 18. Through 51 games, he is hitting .277 (36-for-130) with nine doubles, three triples, a home run and 10 RBI. The Marlins are last place in the NL East with a 32-52 record, 16.5 games back of the division-leading Atlanta Braves, but have won 8 of their last 10 games.

2 | Zack Cozart | SS | Cincinnati Reds 

A seven-game hitting streak highlighted Cozart's month of June, when he hit .244. Through 77 games, he is hitting .243 (75-for-309) with 19 doubles, a triple, seven home runs and 33 RBI. He ranks court among ML shortstop in doubles, fifth in home runs and seventh in RBI. The Reds are third place in the NL Central with a 49-36 record, tied for the third-best mark in the National League and 3.5 games back of the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals.

31 | Lance Lynn | RHP | St. Louis Cardinals

Since the start of the 2012, Lynn is tied with R.A. Dickey for the second-most wins in the majors (28), behind only Max Scherzer (29). This season, he is tied for sixth in the majors with 10 wins and became just the second Cardinals pitcher to have at least 10 wins by the All-Star break in two of his first three seasons. For the season, he holds a 10-3 record and 3.75 ERA with 106 strikeouts against 39 walks over 17 starts. Lynn, who gets the start Sunday against the Miami Marlins, has helped carry St. Louis to a 50-34 record, the third-best mark in baseball, but  also 2.0 games back of the Pittsburgh Pirates, which has the best record in baseball.

13 | Drew Pomeranz | LHP | Colorado Rockies

Pomeranz made his season debut for Colorado this past Sunday. He allowed four runs on seven hits, including two home runs, with four walks and five strikeouts in a 5-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants. He had a 4.20 ERA and 8-1 record, with a league-leading 96 strikeouts, in 15 starts with Colorado Springs Sky Sox of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. He makes his second start of the season on Saturday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rockies are second in the NL West with a 42-44 record, 2.5 games back of division-leading San Francisco.

15 | Seth Smith | OF/DH | Oakland Athletics

Smith hit at a .321 clip in the month of April before cooling off at the plate in the months of June and July. His best performance came against the Seattle Mariners, when he went 3-for-5, his fourth three-hit game this season. Through 71 games, he is hitting .278 (71-for-255) with 19 doubles, six home runs and 32 RBI. The .278 average is his best mark since 2011 when he hit .284 for the season as a member of the Colorado Rockies. The Athletics remain atop the AL West with a 50-36 record, the fourth-best mark in the majors, a half-game ahead of the Texas Rangers.
