May 24, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Will Benson, DH – Lake County Captains – Cleveland Indians – – 2-5, 2 HR (11,12), 2R, 4RBi, 2K – – Benson’s two home runs last night helped pull him into a tie for the Midwest League home run lead with Great Lakes left fielder Niko Hulsizer, who’s gotten his fair share of pub here at the site lately. Benson’s first homer, a two-out, three-run shot to right field, scoring left fielder Hosea Nelson and shortstop Tyler Freeman, was the heart of a five-run fifth inning for the Captains. Benson struck out to end the sixth, but capped off his night with a leadoff homer in the ninth, giving Lake County a 7-1 lead. Captains reliever Kyle Marman entered the game in seventh, struck out five and gave up an earned run in the bottom of the ninth on a shortstop Otto Lopez homer, but Lake County walked away with a 7-2 victory, and now sit only two games back in the loss column (29-18), and within one game of the MWL lead held by Great Lakes (29-16). This was Benson’s second multi-homer game of the season. The first was his monumental four-homer, eight RBi game against South Bend on April 18.

May 23, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Jarren Duran, CF – Salem Red Sox – Boston Red Sox – – 3-4, 2B, 3R, BB, SB (16) – – With the methodical ground-and-pound Duran has been placing upon Carolina League pitching for the last 42 games, I don’t think it’s long before the 2018 – 7th rounder out of Long Beach State packs his bags for Double-A Portland. The Sea Dogs current corp of centerfielders are batting a combined .200 with 12 extra base hits, nine stolen bases and, as a team, Portland ranks tenth out of 12 teams in the Eastern League in on-base percentage (.303). Duran would give them an immediate boost, as he leads the entire minors in hits (69), third in all the minors with a .468 on base percentage and leads the Carolina League with 16 steals. He’s yet to commit an error this season and carries a .992 career fielding percentage in 87 games as a pro. Promote him Boston, and for those fantasy players in dynasty leagues, if you can pick up and house minor leaguers and Duran is available, add him immediately.

May 22, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

 *Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Josh Stowers, RF – Charleston RiverDogs – New York Yankees – – 3-5, 2 HR (3,4), 3B, 3R, 3RBi – – Stowers, who comes in at the 25th spot on MLB Pipeline’s New York Yankees top 30 list, clubbed his third and fourth home runs last night despite the River Dogs falling to Asheville. After center fielder Brandon Lockridge led off the game with a strikeout looking, Stowers laced the first triple of his pro career to left field, but was left stranded, as left fielder Canaan Smith and first baseman Mickey Gasper followed with two strikeouts to end the inning. The 6’1″- 200 lb. righty flied out to right in the third, but rebounded in the fourth blasting a two-run shot for his first on the night. The River Dogs came up empty in the fifth and sixth and innings, but Stowers cut the Tourist’s 8-4 lead by one with his second homer on the night to right field. Charleston chipped away at the lead scoring four runs over the next three innings, but fell short, going down by a score of 10-8.
