Minor League Player of the Day – Jesmuel Valentin (Ogden) 2 for 3, 1 3B, 2 walks. Valentin finished the season with 5 consecutive multi-hit games, the last one winning him the player of the day honor. The season ending hot streak boosted Jesmuel's average to .284 with the Raptors, and even more impressive is that he walked almost as much as he struck out during his time in Ogden.
