Early Statistical Leaders

A look at the early minor league leaderboards, through games of April 25. This time we highlight four important categories.

SLUGGING PERCENTAGE
BATTER CLUB CLASS SLG
* Cust, Jack Portland AAA .823
* Tripp, Brandon Delmarva LoA .789
Mather, Joe Springfield AA .772
Braun, Ryan Nashville AAA .765
* Perry, Jason Midland AA .756
# Saltalamacchia, Jarrod Mississippi AA .754
Brinkley, Dante Carolina AA .742
* Raglani, Anthony Jacksonville AA .742
* Bell, Bubba Lancaster HiA .738
Pearce, Steven Lynchburg HiA .737

Braun’s power exploits have been well-documented in Prospect Hot Sheet, and his 15 extra-base hits lead the minors.

ON-BASE PERCENTAGE
BATTER CLUB CLASS OBP
* Appert, Luke Stockton HiA .552
D’Antona, Jamie Tucson AAA .532

* Haynes, Nathan Salt Lake AAA .486
* Ellsbury, Jacoby Portland AA .483
* Paulk, Michael Asheville LoA .481

D’Antona’s 12 walks (against just seven strikeouts) and one hit by pitch are the foundation of his on-base percentage–but hitting .444 doesn’t hurt, either.
