The team’s fairly well stocked outfield has consisted of Headley, Will Venable, Brett Dowdy, Peter Ciofrone, Chip Ambres and Vincent Sinisi.Somewhat surprisingly, the 24 year old Ciofrone has been good all season, since his promotion from Class AA San Antonio. He was riding an eight game hitting streak and hitting .330 with six homers entering the June 5 game at Sacramento.Ambres, the graybeard of the group at age 28, has been terrific. He hit his team leading 11th home run June 2 and entered the Sacramento series batting .292 with a team high 41 RBIs.Ambres has been tabbed by the organization as a ‘priority guy,’ along with Venable and Headley players who are to get maximum at bats and games in Triple A.An offseason free agent signee, Ambres has responded with several clutch hits. All Triple A teams have veteran players who feel they should be in the bigs. But Ambres has showed that he really, really wants to be there.’Chip has an extremely strong work ethic,’ Bevo manager Randy Ready says. ‘He’s on a mission. His hard work is really paying off in the statistics. He’s a true professional.’Ambres played in 53 games with the Kansas City Royals jerseys in 2005 and three with the New York Mets jerseys last season. Shoulder surgery set him back in 2006, but he returned with 21 homers and 71 RBIs for Triple A New Orleans last season.’I’m here to contribute to my team, and it means going out to play well and to produce when the situation calls for it,’ says Ambres, a Texan who once signed to play quarterback at Texas A and M baseball jerseys form china before going the baseball route.Strong and athletic, the 6 1, 230 pound Ambres has played mostly right field. He also has been a leader with the young Portland players, many of whom are playing Triple A for the first extended time cheap Nick Hundley jersey, Matt Antonelli, Headley, Venable and Ciofrone (although he played 36 games here last season) and a bunch of pitchers.’Triple A is about more older guys, waiting here to get to the majors,’ Ambres says. ‘It’s like a competition. (The young guys) have to realize it’s not something you take lightly. You have to have a routine and produce.’I tell them to relax, go out and have a good at bat, be mindful of what’s going on with you. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.’Ciofrone, from upstate New York, has been playing in the outfield (left, right) and infield (third, first, and he also can play second). It figures that the 5 9, 205 left handed hitter played shortstop in high school, and the Boston Red Sox jerseys drafted him to play short your typical shortstop can play any position.’He’s our hottest hitter right now,’ Ready says. ‘We’ve got to find a way to get him in the lineup. He’s valuable to the ball club with his flexibility.’Ciofrone, who has a nice, short swing, says his ‘window of opportunity’ is wide open, being young and playing at Triple A. Whereas prospects like cheap Jay Bruce jersey and cheap Justin Upton jersey make the big leagues in their early 20s ‘superfreaks,’ Ciofrone calls them most players have to work their way up.And that’s where veterans Ambres, Brian Myrow and Shawn Wooten have helped. Ciofrone likes to pick their brains.’Randy says you can never be satisfied, whether you’re hitting .350 or .550. In this game, things can change in a couple days,’ Ciofrone says.Headley could go to San Diego any day. Dowdy was called up from Class AA recently. Venable has been nursing a sore back. Sinisi recently returned from the disabled list (right wrist).
