Player of the Day

 

Top Performers:

 

Monday, August 13th POD goes to Addison Barger

 

Selected in the 6th round of this year’s Draft, Barger played 2nd base and batted 9th for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. Entering play Barger had hits in 4 of his last 5 games after seeing his batting average dip below .200. Barger hit a home run, a pair of doubles, scored a pair of runs and drove in a pair of RBI in 4 AB.

 

With one on and one out in the 3rd inning, Barger hit a double (8) to RF for an RBI and the game’s first run. In the 5th inning, the 6-foot-0 struck out on three strikes, all swinging strikes. He led off the 7th inning with a double (9) to RF on a 0-0 pitch and scored on a single off the bat of Steward Berroa pull within 4 runs, 6 to 2, of the Yankees.

 

In his final at-bat of the day, Addison Barger connected on a 2-2 pitch, sending the ball over the RF wall for a 9th inning led off HR (3).

 

In 40 games with the GCL Blue Jays, Barger is batting just .221 with 9 doubles, a pair of triple, three HR, and 17 RBI.

 

Bo and Vlad Show

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. went hitless with a strikeout in Buffalo’s win. He should be ashamed, only batting .395 as a 19-yr-old in Triple-A.

 

Bo Bichette batted leadoff and played 2B, WTF, with Santiago Espinal getting a turn at 2B for the Fisher Cats. Bo was hitless in 4 ABs with an RBI and a walk.

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.
