Tuesday, June 19th POD goes to Luis De Los Santos.

 

In Bluefield’s first game of 2018, shortstop De Los Santos went 3-for-5 with 2-R, 1-HRA, and 3-RBI in the Blue Jays win.

 

The 20-yr-old infielder enters his 3rd season in the Blue Jays organization and hits everywhere he plays. He grounded out in the first inning.

 

The 6-foot-1 native of Bajos De Haina, DR, came to the plate in the 3rd inning with D.J. Neal on 2nd base. De Los Santos sent a 0-1 pitch over the left field wall for his 4th career home run.

 

LDLS hit a run-scoring single in the 5th inning, struck out swinging in the 6th inning, and singled and scored in the 9th to tie the score at 7 to 7.

 

Bo and Vlad Show

 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr remains of the 7-day DL and will be shut down for 4-ish weeks.

 

Bo Bichette played both ends of a doubleheader, starting both games at shortstop. Bichette went 1-for-6 with 2-BB, 1-K, 2-SB, and 1-RBI. He is now batting .279 with 51 runs, 17 doubles, 5 triples, 5 home runs, 34 BI, and 23 SB.
