June 1, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

National League – Top Hitter of the Day 

  • Tito Polo, CF – LoA West Virginia Power (PIT) – Sally League/Northern – 21 yo; 
    • 4-5, 2 HR (8), 2 2B, 4R, 4RBi, BB
    • No Pirate prospect from AAA all the way down through LoA is having near the season Polo is in 2016. After running a post 58 day analysis, Polo’s current PAG/APPA numbers sit at 4.43/.979. These are elite prospect numbers folks.  Boston’s #1 prospect Yoan Moncada currently holds a PAG/APPA of 4.51/.964 for HiA Salem. Cleveland’s #5 prospect Bobby Bradley sits with a 3.96/.896 PAG/APPA as a 20 year old in HiA. Am I comparing prospects? No. But baseball is all about production and the point we try to make here at UTRMinors is that a kid like Polo simply cannot be ignored. He’s not doing too bad for someone who didn’t make any nationally publicized prospect lists heading into the 2016 season huh?  The 5’9″ – 185 lb. Columbian is displaying all the tools the organization hoped to see after signing the righty in 2012. Polo is hitting for average (.318), is tied for fourth in the Sally League in runs scored (36) with Nationals top prospect Victor Robles, tied for second in home runs (8) with notable names like Rockies stud prospect Brendan Rodgers (4.41/.970), ranks second in total bases (94), third in stolen bases (17) and second in SLG% (.553). If you are in an extremely deep fantasy league, Polo is an absolute must-add at this point of the season.
