Sunday, August 5th POD goes to Alberto Mineo

The Dunedin Blue Jays’ back up catcher had a game to remember on Sunday, as he collected two singles and two doubles while scoring a pair of runs and cashing in four runs batted in. The 24-yr-old Italian born catcher singled in his first at-bat, scoring Kevin Smith and moving Brock Lundquist up to 2nd base.

Mineo flew out in his next at-bat in the 3rd inning but stroked an RBI double (13) to left field in the 5th inning and scored on a Kacy Clemens ball to right field. Mineo walked in his second at-bat of the 5th inning as the D-Jays pushed 9 runs across home plate.

 

The 24-yr-old seven-year MiLB veteran was at it again in the 7th inning doubling home Kevin Smith again for his 14th two-bagger of the year. Mineo scored two batters later on a Rodrigo Orozco’s 18th double. In his final at-bat, Mineo put the icing on the cake with an RBI single to score Joshua Palacios to extend Dunedin’s lead 14 to 9.

 

In 48 games, Mineo owns a .305 batting average, .391 OBP, and .427 slugging %. He’s scored 29 runs while collecting 14 doubles, a pair of long balls, 23 walks, and 32 strikeouts. Over the last 10 games, Alberto has pushed his batting average from .266 to .305 by batting .436.

Lover of all things Toronto Blue Jays. Blue Jays MiLB fanatic. I strive for average while stumbling onto above average. Rogers isn’t cheap. Baseball is a business. Your right, but I’m more right.
