Players of the Week, 8/18-24: Brian Johnson & Mike Miller


Brian Johnson, SP,  Portland Sea Dogs - 1 G, 7.0 IP, 1-0, 1.29 ERA, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB/10 K, 0.43 WHIP, 12.86 K/9, 3.00 G/F, .043 BAA, .294 OPSA

Brain Johnson's season-long resurgence continued last Saturday night at New Hampshire (TOR) in which he allowed three base runners and a single earned run, coasting easily to his fourth SoxProspects.com Pitcher of the Week award. His ten strikeouts were two short of his season-high of 12. Johnson currently leads the Eastern League in ERA (1.83) and WHIP (0.96). He is currently the eighth-ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.

Season Line: 24 G, 13-3, 138.2 IP, 2.21 ERA, 99 H, 34 ER, 39 BB/131 K, .200 BAA

Mike Miller, IF, Portland Sea Dogs- 5 G, 20 AB, 22 PA, 10 H, 2 HR, 1 2B, 6 R, 3 RBI, 1 BB/5 K, .500/.545/.850

Mike Miller claimed the SoxProspects.com Player of the Week honors that he was justly due after the discovery of statistical errors that had skewed the results of the polls placed earlier in the Week. His week was highlighted by a 3-for-5 performance with a home run against New Hampshire August 23 in support of Brian Johnson's winning effort. Miller was the Red Sox ninth-round selection in the 2012 draft.

Season Line: 68 G, .305/.364/.368 (82 for 269), 2 HR, 11 2B, 20 BB/38 K, 9 SB (5 CS)
