Former Cal Poly Pomona standout Travis Taijeron has been named Florida State League Player of the Week. Taijeron, of the Ports St. Lucie Mets went 9-for-19 in six games with , six doubles, and a home run.
After tearing up the South Atlantic League for 64 games last season, Taijeron was promoted to St. Lucie in mid June. Though he struggled in the FSL in 2012, hitting .203 in 48 games, he seems to have taken the measure of the league in 2013. The 24-year-old outfielder has at least one extra-base hit in each of his last seven games and is reaching base at a .393 clip, which leads the Mets and ranks 11th in the league.
Taijeron was selected by the New York Mets in the 18th round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of Cal Poly Pomona where we was named California Collegiate Athletic Association Male Athlete of the Year..
