Prospect Of The Day
Peoria Saguaros DH Leonard Davis (Nationals) has logged a lot of miles this year.
The Nationals’ eighth-round pick in 2004 out of Fresno Community College, Davis split his season between three different teams—Potomac, Harrisburg and Columbus. Although he struggled in Triple A, his final line was a solid .308/.364/.566 over 438 at-bats with 28 doubles and 25 home runs.
Now Davis is in the AFL and yesterday he went 2-for-5 with a double and a home run to help the Saguaros beat the Phoenix Desert Dogs, 14-8.
The performance isn’t an anomaly for Davis, who has been stinging the ball this fall. Over 73 AFL at-bats, he’s hitting .342/.430/.630 with five doubles, two triples, four home runs and two stolen bases.
Other Notable Performances
Davis wasn’t the only Saguaros hitter swinging a hot stick yesterday. Peoria Saguaros catcher Cole Armstrong (White Sox) went 3-for-6 with his seventh home run of the fall. Armstrong, the White Sox’ ninth-best prospect, is now hitting .341/.400/.626 over 91 at-bats this fall. . . Peoria Saguaros right fielder Mike Baxter (Padres) went 3-for-6 with a double and four RBIs. . . A pair of Phillies’ prospects provided most of the offense for Mesa as the Solar Sox topped the Peoria Javelinas, 10-4. Mesa second baseman Jason Donald (Phillies) went 1-for-4 with a home run, his fifth of the fall, and Mesa DH Lou Marson (Phillies) went 2-for-4 with four RBIs. Donald is now hitting .414/.480/.759 this fall. . . Scottsdale shortstop Kevin Frandsen (Giants) went 1-for-3 with a double, knocking the Scorpions’ only extra-base hit in a rare, 1-0 victory. The 1-0 game was the first of the AFL this season. . . With the AFL championship game scheduled for Nov. 22, the Peoria Saguaros and Mesa Solar Sox are in good shape with records of 25-11.
