Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – May 15, 2018

National League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Bret Boswell, 3B – LoA Asheville Tourists (COL) – Sally League
    • 3-5, HR (7), 2B, 3R, 3RBi 
    • The 2017 – 8th rounder out of the University of Texas has 13 hits in his last seven games and despite Asheville’s 14-22 record, several Tourist hitters are swarming the Sally League offensive leaderboard. Aside from Kansas City prospect Seuly Matias atop the home run race (12), the next three hitters are Tourist teammates: Casey Golden (10), Chad Spanberger (8), followed by Boswell. In fact, if the South Atlantic  League season ended today, Casey Golden might very well take home MVP honors. 

American League – Top Hitter of the Day:

  • Jo Adell, CF – LoA Burlington Bees (LAA) – Midwest League
    • 4-5, 2 HR (2,3), 2B, 2R, 5RBi
    • If you scan the overall Midwest League leaderboard, you won’t find the Angels top  prospect (BA #2; MLB Pipeline #1) at or even near the top, but it makes you wonder “what if” after Adell lost two weeks to a late April thumb injury. However, when you capsulate Adell’s actual production, he’s one of, if not the, top producing hitter(s) in the entire league. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Angels promote the 6’3″ – 208 lb. Louisville native to HiA Inland Empire by the end of the season.
