Player Spotlight

Today we turn our attention to Damiano Palmegiani of the Dunedin Blue Jays.

 

DH’ing and batting 3rd, Damiano Palmegiani hit his 3rd home run of June and has back-to-back games with a home run. After grounding out in the 1st inning, Damiano hit a 1-1 pitch to left field for his 11th home run of the season. He also singled in the 8th inning but he was a little too aggressive trying to stretch it into a double and was thrown out.

 

Over his last 12 games, Damiano owns a .375/.400/.750 slash with 6 doubles, 4 home runs, and 12 RBI pushing his batting average from .229 to .261. In 53 games, Damiano has 14 doubles, a triple, 11HR, 36RBI, 30 runs scored, and a stolen base. He’s walked 22 times with 44K.
