Taking a short break from our draft coverage (and plenty more is coming) for the latest Hot and Cold. This week we have an outfielder on yet another hitting streak and a catcher struggling to handle a promotion.
Hot Hitter: Brandon Short, OF, AA
Short was here two weeks ago for a hitting streak and he's here again for a hitting streak. The entire
Barons lineup had a hot week (as you can see from Seth Loman and Tyler Kuhn making honorable mention). Short had a hit in every game to start a new seven-game hit streak after having a 19-game streak that ended May 28. For the week the 22-year-old hit .452/.441/.742 in 31 at-bats. He hit just .241 in April, but the May hit streak put him at .301 for May and Short is hitting .424 to start June. .296/.343/.477 on the season. Honorable mentions: Kuhn
(.438/.486/.531), Loman (.406/.424/.563) and Brady Shoemaker (.385/.448/.808). (Photo credit: al.com)
