    • The 2015 – 39th rounder out of the University of Georgia has been on a tear lately. Six of his 11 home runs have come in his last seven games and he’s also on a five-game two-hit streak. However, let’s temper our enthusiasm. The 6’1″ – 210 lb. lefty turns 25 in late July and will no longer fall under UTR qualification.
