Under the Radar Hitters of the Day – August 11, 2017

National League – Top Hitter of the Day 

  • Esteury Ruiz, 2B – AZL Padres (SD) – AZL/West 
    • 2-4, HR (1/4), 3B, R, 4RBi, BB 
    • My 2017 “One to Watch”  selection (with Kansas City) leads the Arizona League with 53 hits, nine triples and 98 total bases. The 6’0″- 150 lb. Dominican native also ranks fourth in OPS (1.110) and his 15 doubles and 16 stolen bases rank him second in the league. If you’re in a very deep dynasty league with minor league slots, Ruiz is an absolute must-add.

American League – Top Hitter of the Day 

  • Andrew Calica, DH – HIA Lynchburg Hillcats (CLE) – Carolina League/Northern 
    • 3-3, HR (5), 3R, 3RBi, 3BB, SB (9)
