Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – June 27, 2018

*The New York-Penn League (NYPL) and Appalachian League (APPY) each had a scheduled day off Wednesday* 

National League – Top Hitter of the Day

  • Mark Karaviotis, LF – HiA Visalia Rawhide (ARI) – Cal League2-2, HR (3), 3R, 4RBi, 3BB

American League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Trevor Craport, 1B – LoA Delmarva Shorebirds (BAL) – Sally League2-6, 2 HR (9,10), 3R, 5RBi
    • After playing the vast majority of his time at third base for Georgia Tech, the 2017 – 11th round draft pick came to the Orioles with “multi-tasker” tagged to his name due to his (athletic enough) ability to play all over the field. In his time with Yellow Jackets, the 5’11” – 200 lb. righty also pitched out of the bullpen posting a 4.76 ERA with a 1.41 WHIP along with a 3:3 BB:K ratio. In his pro debut, the 21-year-old batted .302 with 21 extra base hits, including three home runs, in 52 games for Short Season Aberdeen (NYPL). Although he’s seen a dip in his overall slash line from 2017, it appears that Craport’s power has arrived this season, as he’s hit 10 homers (two last night) so far this season with just over half a season to go.
