June 8, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (New Stuff)

*The South Atlantic League had a scheduled off day Monday, while all but one Carolina League game was postponed due to weather. The Potomac Nationals (WAS) vs. the Carolina MudCats (ATL) produced no UTR HOD qualifiers.*

After seeing the success of Jim’s new format (of choosing the top pitcher in each league we cover), starting today, I’m going to follow Jim’s lead by choosing a Hitter of the Day which will kick-off my list each day. Jim has shortened his lists giving you THE best pitchers from each league; which falls into the “quality over quantity” approach.  So, I’ll be leading off with the top hitter of the day regardless of whatever league they derive from.

My inaugural “top” Hitter of the Day is 19 year old DSL Twins first baseman Jorge Parra.  In the young Venezuelan’s game yesterday, the 6’0″ – 170 pounder rounded out the cycle quickly with an RBi double in an 11-run 6th inning for the DSL Twins. The game ended with the Twins locking down a football-like 21-14 victory over the DSL Yankees1.
