Mickey Moniak Is Developing Rapidly: Watch His Last Eight Extra-base Hits at Spectrum Field

The rapid development of Clearwater Threshers centerfielder Mickey Moniak has been dramatic this season at only baseball age 20.  He has come into his own and continues to improve with 15 games remaining in the season.

Mickey Moniak

Moniak started off hitting .213 for April and is now hitting .318 for August. But more importantly his OPS has risen almost 400 points from .487 in April to .881 in August.

Currently, Mickey is on an eleven game hitting streak batting .350 in his last ten games.  What stands out in those last ten game is he has struck out only three times in 40 at bats.

Last night in Ft Myers, he homered to tie his home run high from last season of five in 75 fewer at bats this season. Thursday night, he just miss going deep to right at Spectrum Field and had to settle for a double.

Mickey is currently second in the Florida State League in doubles with 26. Only Zach Green with 32 with Reading/Lehigh Valley and Lakewood’s Jake Scheiner with 28 have hit  more doubles this season in the Phillies minor league system. Both of them are older than Moniak.  Doubles are considered a good indicator of future power.

Last night, Moniak was charged with his first error of the season in 101 games in the outfield. He has five assists this season.

    Micky Moniak is looking more and more like Christian Yelich with his swing.
    He is driving the ball and he is no longer in that lower crouch as in the past, and now standing more upright at the plate.
