Rattler Alumni Report – Through Winter League Games of October 20, 2013
The Dominican Winter League started over the weekend so we add them to the roll this week. Sean Halton (’10) is playing for Licey in the DWL and is off to a good start over the first three games.
Also, David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox are moving on to the World Series that starts on Wednesday.
ALDS v. TB: 4 games; 5-for-13, 2HR, 3RBI, 5 BBs
ALCS v. DET: 6 games; 2-for-22, HR, 4 RBI
While Mitch Haniger, the Brewers’ No. 12 prospect, may be just 10 games into the Arizona Fall League season, he’s already made his presence felt in the middle of Surprise’s lineup.
That was never more obvious than in Saturday’s 7-0 win over Glendale. Haniger, who was recently honored as Co-Player of the Week, belted a three-run shot in the top of the first inning, allowing Surprise to cruise to an easy victory.
What made the center fielder’s at-bat against starter Trevor May even more impressive was his ability to battle back from an 0-2 hole.
“I was really able to see all of the pitches he had in that at-bat and really work the count before hitting the home run,” said Haniger.
In just 33 at-bats so far this season, he is hitting .394 with two home runs and 12 RBIs, a staggering pace for this early in the season.
“I’m feeling really good about how I’m swinging the bat right now. Any time you are in this zone, you see the ball better,” Haniger said. “I know for me, everything seems slower.”
