Today we turn our attention to Addison Barger of the Vancouver Canadians.
Not sure how much longer the Blue Jays will hold the 22-yr-old down in High-A? He’s doing it all for the C’s. The SS batted 2nd for Vancouver on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored, a walk, and a strikeout.
In the 1st inning, Barger doubled and advanced to 3rd on a passed ball. With one on and one out in the 3rd inning, Addison put Steward Berroa into scoring position with a double and Leo Jimenez hit an RBI sac fly. With two outs and a runner at first in the 5th inning, Addison doubled for the 3rd time and scored when Leo Jimenez hit a deep fly ball that cleared the fence in center. Addison Barger struck out in the 7th, and walked and scored in the 8th to finish his productive game.
Over the past 15 days, Barger has 5 doubles, 2HR, 5RBI, and 10 runs scored while slashing .357/.486/.750 for a 1.236OPS. He is well on his way to his third month batting over .300 with 8 hits in 23 at-bats in 6 games this month. In 69 games, Addison Barger has 21 doubles, 2 triples, 14 home runs, and 46 runs scored. He’s walked 25 times with 76 strikeouts, and 7 stolen bases in 9 attempts. Addison owns a .300BA with a .924OPS.
Addison Barger leads the Northwest League with 78 hits and 53RBI. He’s also 3rd in doubles and home runs. You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone, including me, who would have put Addison on any Top 30 prospect list leading into the season. But now I’d be very surprised not to see him crack Top 20 on all those stupid prospect lists.
The Groshans and Martinez Show
The 22-yr-old infielder manned SS, batting 3rd. He went 1-for-3 with an RBI, a walk, and a strikeout. Over the past two weeks (11GP), Groshans has gone 10-for-40 for a .250BA with 3 doubles, 6BB, 7K, and 4RBI. In 54 games, Jordan is batting .271 with 8 doubles, a home run, 21RBI, and a .704OPS.
The 20-yr-old infield prospect was given Sunday off. Over the past two weeks (11GP), Martinez batted .224 with 7 runs scored, 4HR, and 8RBI with one walk and 14 strikeouts. In 70 games, O is batting .212 with 19HR, 11 doubles, 48RBI, 6SB, and a .753OPS.
