Bailey, Zink International League MVPs


1B/OF/DH Jeff Bailey, currently with the major league club, has been International League Most Valuable Player and his Pawtucket teammate RHP Charlie Zink has been named Most Valuable Pitcher. In 109 games with the Paw Sox, Bailey (29) is hitting .301/.405/.562 (.967 OPS) over 418 ABs (126 hits) with 25 home runs, 28 doubles and three triples, scoring 88 runs and batting in 75. Zink (29) is tied for the league lead with 14 wins (five losses) and owns a 2.92 ERA, allowing 54 earned runs on 137 hits over 166.1 innings pitched in 27 starts, striking out 103 and walking 46 and holding opposing batters to a .222 BAA. They are the first teammates to win both awards since 1995. They were both also named International League season-ending All Stars along with teammates OF Chris Carter and 2B Joe Thurston. Carter is currently the #16 ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com and Thurston and Zink are SoxProspects.com's first and fourth rated post-prospects, respectively.
