June 26, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

National League – Top Hitter of the Day

National League: 

  • Randy Ventura, CF – DSL Braves (DSL) – Dominican Summer League – 17 yo;
    • 2-3, 3R, RBi, 2BB, 2 SB (23) 
    • The 5’9″ – 165 lb. switch-hitter is on pace to steal 107 bases this season. Ventura is a three-time UTR HOD and averages 1.53 swipes a game. His current pace would far exceed the 72 stolen bases posted by Cleveland’s Gabriel Mejia in the Dominican Summer League last season. In fact, Mejia’s 72 swipes in 2014 are the most in the DSL in the last 10 years. Ventura has gone hitless in only one of his 15 games this season (6/3 vs. DSL Tigers) and has collected 10 hits in his last four games. He currently leads the Dominican Summer League in stolen bases (obviously) while ranking with the leagues top five in runs scored (21), batting (.436) and on-base percentage (.500). Ventura will be an extremely fun prospect to watch as the DSL season progresses.
