AFL Day 3: Mous on the loose

Before we get to the Star of the Day, some more on the player interactivity front.

We’re starting to get players up and running on Twitter. So far, two have taken the plunge, so he gets a special shout out:

Dodgers OF Trayvon Robinson can be followed @TRobinsonAFL.
Mariners OF Joe Dunivan can be followed @JDuniganAFL

Go and give them a follow, would you?

Now, on to our Stars of the Day

Hitter

Mike Moustakas, 3B, Surprise (Royals): The Rafters are now 3-0 thanks to their 18 hits onmoustakas.jpg
Thursday. Moustakas, the Royals top pick from 2007, went 3-for-5 with a
homer, two doubles and 7 RBIs. That’s a week for some people. Honorable
mention goes to Yankees prospect Brandon Laird (Gerald’s brother). He
went 5-for-5 in this game and is now 9-for-11 in two AFL contests.

Pitcher

gutierrez.jpgDanny Gutierrez, RHP, Surprise (Rangers): While that win over Mesa may have been more about offense (12-5), Gutierrez’s start should not be overlooked.While the Rafters were getting out to a 3-0 lead, Gutierrez was putting up zeroes over three innings. And that’s not just in runs. The right-hander didn’t allow a hit during his outing, walking two and striking out two.

Evidently, there’s some kid named Strasburg pitching tonight. Haven’t heard much about him, though.
