Congrats to Rod Perez of Las Vegas and Anthony Moore of Mexico City as our Pitcher/Hitter players of the week.

But who are these guys and how did they get to be so good?
Let's take a look at their resume.
Rod Perez
Las Vegas

Age: 26B/T: S/R
Born: Cedar Rapids, IA
Position(s): P (ClA)

Rod Perez is a 26 yr who has dominated as the closer for a couple of years.
He earns his 6.75 Million paycheck with lock down performances every time.
His current ratings speak for themselves:
Stamina -36
Control -95
Left -74
Right -94
Velocity -89
GB/FB -73
Pitch 1 -80
Rod's talent was obvious as noted by his Round 1 44th pick in the draft out of Community College. Since those days of English 101 classes he has gone on to be a
3 Time ML All-star. Rod Perez is a name and a face we will see again.

Anthony Moore
Mexico City
Age: 23B/T: S/R
Born: Brookline, MA
Position(s): LF/1B

Anthony Moore is a 23yr old left fielder who just recently burst on the scene in only his second full year. His 360,000 salary now certainly won't last long with a future like his. His current ratings show his current star status even now:
Contact -95
Power -71
Left -90
Right -75
Eye -74
Speed -99
Anthony was taken right away as a Round 1 31st pick in the draft as a high schooler at 18. Since then he has been a perienial minor league all-star. The question is will he get his first ML all-star nomination this year?
