July 3, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

I want to start by wishing everyone a happy and safe July 4th, as America celebrates it’s independence, turning 240 today. Still looks pretty darn good too! Fire up those grills, watch a parade, play some ball in the yard, but most importantly, be with family. The Fourth of July is an annual reminder of how much my family means to me. So, as I prepare for another day relaxing with family, I again, wish everyone a Happy 4th of July.

National League – Top Hitter of the Day

  • Bobby Stahel, LF – SS Boise Hawks (COL) – Northwest League/South – 23 yo;
    • 2015 – 20th round – Southern California  
    • 2-3, HR (2), 3R, 2RBi, BB, 2 SB (5) 

National League: 

  • Jose Miguel Medina, RF – Rookie Kingsport (NYM) – Appy League/West – 19 yo; 
    • 2-5, HR (1), 3B, R, 3RBi, 2K 
  • Nick Banks, RF – SS Auburn Doubledays (WAS) – New York-Penn League/Pinckney – 21 yo; 
    • 3-5, 2B, 3R, 3RBi, K 
  • David Kerian, 1B – SS Auburn Doubledays (WAS) – New York-Penn League/Pinckney – 23 yo; 
    • 4-6, 2B, 4RBi
  • Domingo Leyba, SS – HiA Visalia Rawhide (ARI) – Cal League/North – 20 yo; 
    • 4-4, 2 2B, 2R, RBi
  • Brendan Rodgers, SS – LoA Asheville Tourists (COL) – Sally League/Southern – 19 yo; 
    • 2-5, HR (11), R, 4RBi, 2K 
  • Willie Abreu, RF – SS Boise Hawks (COL) – Northwest League/South – 21 yo; 
    • 3-5, HR (1), 2R, 2RBi, K 
  • Cody Thomas, DH – AZL Dodgers (LAD) – Arizona League/Central – 21 yo; 
    • 3-4, HR (3), R, 3RBi, BB 
    • The 2016 – 13th rounder out of Oklahoma has posted five consecutive multi-hit performances dating back to June 28th. In only 22 at-bats, the 6’4″ – 210 lb. lefty is tied for the Arizona League lead in home runs and ranks fifth in total bases with 23. In 2013, Thomas was drafted in the 30th round by the New York Yankees, but chose to enroll in school with hopes of landing Oklahoma’s starting QB job. The Dodgers are reaping the benefits so far, as the once-hopeful quarterback (and former two-way star at both Oklahoma and Colleyville Heritage High School in Texas) chose baseball as his best possible career option after falling behind Baker Mayfield on the Sooner’s depth chart in 2015.
