*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Michael Gigliotti, CF – Lexington Legends – Kansas City Royals –
    • – 3-5, 3B, R, 4RBi, K, SB (29) – 
      • – With 2018 health issues behind him, Gigliotti is displaying the top-of-the-order catalyst skills the organization drafted in the fourth round in 2018 out of Libscomb University (TN). He currently ranks second in all the minors with 29 steals, behind only fellow Royal Nick Heath, who’s swiped 38 bags in 52 games for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Gigliotti is not only flashing his on-base skills, but stellar defense, as he’s gone errorless, posting a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage so far this season.

June 15, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*We here at UTRMinors would like to wish all the dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day!

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Gareth Morgan, CF – Inland Empire 66ers – Los Angeles Angels – – 2-5, HR (6), R, RBi, 2K – – Morgan hit his third home run in two days and all five of his homers on the season have come with his new home, Inland Empire. Morgan was released from his contract with the Seattle organization on April 19, only to be picked up by the Los Angeles Angels ten days later. He batted a putrid .074 in Modesto’s first eight games of the season, but the time off and a new setting must have flipped a switch. Morgan is batting a combined .231 on the season, but for the 66ers, has ten hits in 25 at-bats (including all of his home runs), ten of his 12 runs scored and 12 of his 15 RBi’s on the season, all coming within his last six games.

June 14, 2019 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

*Top Hitter of the Day*

  • Gareth Morgan, DH – Inland Empire 66ers – Los Angeles Angels – – 3-6, 2 HR (1,2), 3R, 6RBi, 3K – – Morgan may be batting a meager .213 on the season with only 10 hits in 47 at-bats across 13 games with both Modesto and Inland Empire, but five of those ten hits have been home runs. The Angels free-agent signee back in April posted the third two-homer game of his career last night (here’s #1 and #2), leading the 66er’s to an 19-6  drubbing of the Lancaster Jethawks. Morgan clubbed his first of the game, a two-run line drive over the left field wall, off Rockies top prospect Ryan Rolinson, who took the loss, giving up nine earned runs on nine hits, with four walks in 3.2 innings, dropping him to to 2-3 with a 4.23 ERA on the season.  Morgan’s second home run of the evening started Inland Empire’s four-run ninth, as he connected on a 1-2 pitch off reliever Tommy Doyle, scoring right fielder Ryan Vega who singled after infielder Franklin Torres led off the inning with a walk. Morgan’s blast also helped him set a career high with six runs batted in. His previous high was four, which he did twice last season while with Modesto (April 7 versus Lancaster; and August 1 against Stockton). A rehabbing Juston Upton also got into the 19-run mix going 4-5 with two home runs of his own, scoring five runs and driving in four.
