May 29, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (Welcome back DSL)

Today marks Opening Day for the Dominican Summer League and the eve of Jim and I reporting its best daily performers. Over the years, the Dominican Summer League has been extremely kind to us and after 51 days of reporting on the best of HiA and LoA, the beginning of the DSL is like a child opening a slew of birthday gifts two months after Christmas.  The DSL is a testing ground for what could be the next wave of possible top prospects in the minors, proving a basis of production that hundreds of kids could build upon. On the hitters end, a total of 19 prospects made the 2014 Organizational All-Star list and I’m looking forward to see if that number can be eclipsed in 2015. Until tomorrow’s post, here’s what yesterday offered……
