Player of the Day

Sunday, April 14th POD goes to Chavez Young

 

The 21-yr-old out of Freeport, Bahamas, went 2-for-4 with a double and home run. The home run came in the 5th inning with Cal Stevenson and Kevin Vicuna on base. It was Young’s first home run as a member of the Dunedin Blue Jays.

 

Chavez hit a 2-out double, ground-rule, in the 3rd inning but was stranded on a Logan Warmoth groundout.

 

The former 39th round pick is off to a nice start with the Dunedin Blue Jays. In 10 games, Young has three multi-hit games and he has reached base in all but two games. The talented outfielder is hitting at the top of the D-Jays lineup and has scored 7 runs while driving in 5. He is yet to steal a base and needs to would on controlling the strike zone better (13K) but he should be proud to be batting .268 with a pair of doubles, a triple, and a HR.

 

The Bo and Vlad Show

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. played 3rd and batted 3rd for the Buffalo Bisons. He went 3-for-5 with a run scored and a run batted in. Vladdy picked up singles in the 1st, leading off the 3rd, and drove in the Bisons’ 5th run with a single in the 7th inning. Guerrero grounded into a double play in the 5th inning and grounded out to third base for the final out of the game.

 

Bo Bichette leadoff for Buffalo and played SS. Bo went 1-for-5 with a run scored and a pair of strikeouts. Bo waited until the 7th inning to collect his only hit, an up-the-middle single to help set up the Bisons’ 3-run 7th inning. Bo came around to score on Richard Urena’s 2-run triple.
