Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – August 5, 2018

National League – Top Hitter of the Day 

  • Jhon Torres, RF – GCL Cardinals (STL) – Gulf Coast League
    • 4-6, HR (1/5), 2 2B, 4R, 5RBi 
    • The 18-year-old Torres was part of the return St. Louis got when they dealt outfield prospect Oscar Mercado at the MLB Trade Deadline last Tuesday. The Cardinals also received 21-year-old Conner Capel, a 2016-5th round draft choice out of Seven Lakes HS (TX). I’m a little perplexed over the deal, why they would deal Mercado,  but Torres comes with immense size (6’4″- 185 lbs.) and solid improvement from last year where he batted .255 with 5 home runs and 35 runs batted in with the DSL Indians. If Torres continues to trend upward like he has this season, losing Mercado may not sting as much as initial reports state.
