One of the things we look for watching minor league baseball is “Who Is Finishing Strong”. With only two weeks or so left in the 2015 season, it’s always better to finish “strong” than to get off to a “good start” and fade at the end of the season.
The buzz around the the Carpenter Complex is about who will be going to Fall instructs, the Arizona Fall League and off- season ball in the Caribbean or Australia. These coveted assignment are important in player development and next year’s assignments.
No two players on the Clearwater Threshers are finishing stronger than first baseman Rhys Hoskins and outfielder Aaron Brown. Over the last ten games both are hitting .359. going 14 for 39.
The difference is that Hoskins in his last ten games is on fire. He has 12 RBI’s, 12 runs scored to go with three home runs. Brown has only three RBI’s including two homers over his last ten games.
In Hoskins last 12 at bats, he was just a single shy of the cycle. He has a homer, a triple and three doubles to score and drive in six runs each. Can’t be any hotter than that only a dozen at bats!
Last night Hoskins tripled to right center and doubled off the wall in left in the Threshers 11-1 lacing of the Brewers farm team, the Brevard County Manatees. Watch HERE and HERE. Aaron Brown added two doubles in last night’s game also. Watch HERE and HERE.
Hoskins and Brown are finishing strong which looks good for next season’s likely advancement to AA Reading for both of them.
