July 17, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Gareth Morgan, RF – Inland Empire 66ers – Los Angeles Angels –– 2-4, HR (17), R, RBi –– Right on cue for Inland Empire outfielder Morgan.
      • – If you go back to the July 14 installment of my UTR HOD Morgan was selected as my “Top Hitter of the Day.” Anytime someone crushes two or more home runs in a game, they should be highlighted. However, what the 6’4″- 220 lb. Toronto, ON, Canada native is doing this season is pretty special. Morgan hit another home run last night. His seventeenth on the season, which ties him for third in the Cal League, but the bigger story (in a crooked number kind of way)  was “when” he hit the home run. I pointed out Tuesday the monumental pace in which Morgan is clearing outfield walls with baseballs and he was right on cue in the 66er’s 3-2 victory over Visalia last night. Morgan clubbed his last home run in the fifth inning of Inland Empire’s July 14 game versus Modesto. He followed with a double, then struck out in his next two at-bats (2). In his next game, Morgan logged an incredibly infamous 0-7 with 6 strikeouts, despite Inland Empire’s 14 inning 10-6 victory over his former team. (2+7). Then we have last night. After a clean 1-2-3 top of the first inning for 66er starter Travis Herrin, centerfielder Orlando Martinez opened IE’s half of the first with a solo homer. Shortstop Michael Stefanic flew out to center, then Morgan stepped to the plate, and proceeded to send a Shumpei Toshikawa 2-2 pitch over centerfielder Eduardo Diaz‘ head. In other words, in his tenth at-bat (2+7=9+1 = 10) since his last home run.  –  I love this job.

July 16, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Matt Whatley, C – Hickory Crawdads – Texas Rangers – – 3-5, 2B, R, 2RBi, SB (21) – – Looking at the stat line of the Texas Rangers round three pick out of Oral Roberts University (OK) in 2017, you wouldn’t think he’s a full time catcher. Once a finalist for the Johnny Bench Award for the nation’s top college catcher, the Rangers are seeing this season what he’s fully capable of. The 5’11”- 200 lb. righty has stolen a career high 21 bases (leading all minor league catchers including Triple and Double A), has posted a .359 on-base percentage, helped by a near Sally League leading 54 walks, which is 22 more walks than he registered in his previous 96 games over his first two years as a pro.

July 15, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Simon Whiteman, 2B – Salem-Keizer Volcanoes – San Francisco Giants – – 2-4, 3B, R, K, 2 SB (14,15) – – He may have fallen short of the winning the Rhodes Scholarship, but the Ivy League product (Yale) came to the Giants via the ninth round this past June and all he’s done is produce like a potential NWL MVP. He’s batting .283 with a .411 on-base percentage, but more impressive is his Northwest League-leading 15 stolen bases and a pristine 21:20 BB:K ratio in 27 games thus far.
