Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – July 2, 2018

National League – Top Hitter of the Day: 

  • Casey Golden, LF – LoA Asheville Tourists (COL) – Sally League3-4, 2 HR (17,18), 2B, 2R, 4RBi, BB, KToday, Golden makes his fifteenth appearance on the HOD list, and his second Top Hitter of the Day distinction in the last three days, as he hit two homers on June 30 (his 15th and 16th) and again last night, blasted two homers vs. Lexington. That makes four homers, nine RBis and five runs scored in his last three games. However, the 23-year-old UNC Wilmington draftee’s 18 home runs (still) sit below teammate Chad Spanberger (who you’ll see below) and Seuly Matias (24) for the Sally League lead. However, for a power hitter, it isn’t surprising to see Golden’s 100 strikeouts (in 69 games) lead the league.
