Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – May 25, 2018

National League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Drew Waters, CF – LoA Rome Braves (ATL) – Sally League 2-3, HR (5), 2B, R, 4RBi
    • The 2017 – 2nd rounder out of Etowah HS (GA) has collected a hit in 13 out of his last 15 games and is currently riding a seven-game hit streak where he’s batting .400 (12-30). Waters may not be named Acuna, Riley or Pache, but do not sleep on him. The 6’2″- 185 lb. switch-hitter was tabbed the purest bat and the speediest prospect of the Braves 2017 draft class by Baseball America. In 29 games so far this season, Water’s has already surpassed his home run and triples total from 2017 (with the GCL and Rookie Danville) and should meet or exceed career highs in every other statistical category as well.
