Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – July 16, 2018

National League – Top Hitter of the Day

  • Jasrado Chisholm, SS – LoA Kane County Cougars (ARI) – Midwest League5-6, 2 HR (14,15), 3B, 4R, 5RBi 
    • The 20-year-old from Nassau, Bahamas continues his breakout season with LoA Kane County. Chisholm clubbed his 14th and 15th homers last night versus Dayton and now sits one home run shy of the league lead (by Clinton’s Ryan Costello-16). It really makes you think how much further along in his career Chisholm would/could be had he not gone down to injury last season, playing only 29 games (with Kane County). It wouldn’t be shocking to see the 5’11”- 165lb. lefty promoted to HiA Visalia to end the season. He’s a year behind in development, but as one of the Midwest League leaders in extra-base percentage (.480), it’s exciting to ponder how potent Chisholm could be in the high octane atmosphere of the California League.

American League – Top Hitter of the Day

  • Kyle Isbel, CF – Rookie Idaho Falls Chukars (KC) – Pioneer League4-5, 2 HR (3,4), 2B, 3R, 4RBi
    • The 2018 – 3rd rounder out of UNLV is one of the Pioneer League leaders in total bases (64), is tied for the league lead in doubles (10) and sits in third with 27 runs scored and OPS (1.063).

July 12, 2018 – Under the Radar Pitcher Performances

 
TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
RHP Jaison Vilera (NY-Penn League Brooklyn – New York Mets) 21 years old
7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER,  1 BB, 9 K, 1.37 ERA, Win 2-1
  • Vilera had his best outing of his pro career last night against Aberdeen (Orioles). The 6’0″ 188 lb righthander matched his career-high with seven innings and set a new high with 9 strikeouts. The Venezuelan should be a fast mover through the Mets system. After spending one season in the DSL, Vilera came state-side and led the GCL in most pitching categories. My system took note, as he was my Mets’ choice for the 2018 “One to Watch”. I would predict that Vilera would crack the Baseball America’s Top 25 next Spring and should find an assignment at LoA Columbia in 2019.
 
 
TOP AL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE
RHP Bailey Ober (LoA Cedar Rapids – Minnesota) 22 years old
6.2 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, 4.36 ERA, Win 6-1
  • Ober touches double-digit strikeouts in back-to-back outings. His last time out (July 5th), the 12th round pick in 2017 struck out a career-high 12 batters. Over the last four starts, the towering 6’8″ 215 lb righty has racked up 36 K’s in 23.2 innings with only 3 walks. In his first full season, Ober has posted a misleading 4.36 ERA despite a 9.25 K/BB ratio in 64 innings.
