Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – June 6, 2018

National League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Sandy Martinez, C – DSL D-backs2 (ARI) – Dominican Summer League
    • 3-4, 2 HR (1,2), 3R, 4RBi 

American League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Will Benson, RF – LoA Lake County Captains (CLE) – Midwest League
    • 2-4, 2 HR (10,11), 2R, 5RBi, 2K 
    • Benson, the Indians #8 (Pipeline) and #10 (BA) prospect has failed to live up to the positive marks of his scouting report. Despite his 11 home runs this, he’s batting .200 and carries a 1.25 K-per-game rate in 2018, which is actually a decrease from his 1.35 career K/G mark. The organization drools over Benson’s raw bat speed, his defense and strong arm in right. He’s drawn Jason Heyward comparisons, but to reach the majors, he’s going to have to produce better-than-Heyward numbers in the low minors.
