Whatever Vaughn is doing in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, he might want to bottle it up and release it for when the real games start. In Milwaukee's first three summer games, Vaughn averaged 21.3 points per game while playing just an average of 28.0 minutes. And he's doing it while shooting 64.1 percent from the field. Sixty. Four. Point. One. Percent. Vaughn has made 5 of 12 3-point attempts, finding ways to score other than just jacking up shots from downtown as he looks to expand his game. So far, so good.

Domingo Santana, Brewers outfielder (↑ UP)
A healthy Santana is enjoying a career-best season -- he's already set personal highs in games, doubles, home runs, runs, RBI, walks and steals and his hitting .291, which is 35 points higher than his previous best batting average. This past week was more of the same as Santana was 8 for 16 with three doubles, a home run, five runs, five RBI and four walks in Milwaukee's four games.

Junior Guerra, Brewers starting pitcher (↓ DOWN)
To add injury to insult, Guerra's recent rough patch now finds him on the disabled list again. On July 7 at New York, he allowed three runs (one earned) on two hits and three walks before taking a liner off his shin. Guerra couldn't return to the game, which after that play went into a rain delay, and he was eventually placed on the DL.
Jesus Aguilar, Brewers first baseman (↑ UP)
Playing an interleague series on the road enabled Aguilar to play in all four games last week -- thank you, designated hitter -- and he took advantage. Playing in all four of Milwaukee's games, Aguilar was 7 for 15 with a pair of home runs and eight RBI. Most of the damage came on July 7 against the Yankees, when he hit both of his homers (including his first career grand slam) and drove in seven.
Bronson Koenig, Bucks guard (↓ DOWN)
The former Wisconsin Badgers guard not only is getting a chance with an NBA team (and the homestate Bucks, to boot), he got a two-way contract, meaning Milwaukee likely sees him as a player they'd like to have on its new G League team. Koenig's first impression, though, hasn't been good. In the Bucks' first three games in the Las Vegas Summer League, Koenig has made just 5 of 16 shots (31.3 percent) and has yet to record an assist or steal.

D.J. Wilson, Bucks forward (--> EVEN)
Milwaukee's first-round pick averaged 14.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 43.6 percent from the field in the Bucks' first three summer games. He's not dominating (and you'd certainly like to see a higher field-goal percentage), but not being overwhelmed either.
