June 5, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (Better Late than Never)

As Jim mentioned in yesterday’s Pitcher Performance post, we had a bit of a hiccup regarding Opening Day boxscores from the Dominican Summer League. For an unknown reason, we dealt with incomplete boxscores, and despite this being a simple hurdle we can easily jump over by sticking to our posting deadlines, it does however pose quite the nuisance when we at UTRMinors take extreme pride in not only posting the best stat lines for each day, but in a timely manner. To put it bluntly, we want “every” best line score every day for our readers. 

We certainly hope this situation was an isolated incident. However, we here find solutions. In today’s HOD installment, I’ll include the DSL’s top hitters that were missed on the first day. Instead of grouping them with Sunday’s top lines, I’ll segregate them with a “Saturday-June 4th-DSL’s best (0f the rest)” designation. Jim and I understand the importance of keeping pace, and we will continue to do that for you here. 

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
