Michael Hernandez is slowly getting onto peoples radar with a great start down in Lakeland. He went one for four today but he drove in two runs. He’s now hitting .393 and while he’s older then you’d expect at High A (23), you have to be happy with the results. The problem is, he really doesn’t have a position and while he’s listed as a right fielder, he’s been getting a lot of time at DH.
Cameron Maybin failed to get a hit but he did walk three times as the pitchers are starting to avoid him. He’s now walked seven times in eight games and that’s very encouraging.
