Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – June 17, 2018

*The Dominican Summer League has every Sunday off* 

National League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Jamori Blash, 1B – SS Auburn Doubledays (WAS) – New York-Penn League
    • 3-5, HR (1), 2B, 2R, 3RBi, K 
    • The 22-year-old, 2017 – 23rd rounder out of Cochise Junior College (AZ) is the younger brother of former Mariner, Padre and current Angel Jabari Blash.  

American League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Jarren Duran, 2B – SS Lowell Spinners (BOS) – New York-Penn League
    • 3-5, 2 3B, 2B, 3R, 2RBi, 2K 
    • When the Red Sox drafted the Long Beach State second baseman in the 7th round of the recent 2018 MLB Draft, the organization announced Duran as a center fielder instead. Although he was a three-year starter for the Dirtbags at second, posting a career .973 fielding percentage in 169 collegiate games, Duran’s standout tool is his 70-grade speed. So, the organization wants to take advantage of it and his bat won’t suffer as a centerfielder, as he batted a career .295 with two home runs and 49 stolen bases. In Lowell’s first game, Duran started at second, but expect a shift to the outfield.
