There is one Richmond hitter in a league of his own this week. His name is Sandro Fabian. Even though he is not playing every day (he is pinch-hitting half of the time), there is no stopping his scorching hot bat ever since the calendar flipped to June where he is batting .478 with an OPS of 1.261. It has the telltale signs of unsustainability and he is definitely bound to regress soon, but it’s definitely a very pleasant sight to watch the 23-year old make consistent hard contact.
Heliot Ramos had a mixed week, but really heated up over the last couple of days, blasting home runs in back-to-back days on Thursday and Friday. In a pitching-friendly environment, the Puerto Rican is holding his own and has already hit five home runs this season. A mid-season call-up to Triple-A could definitely be on the horizon.
Even though Vince Fernandez is not hitting for a high average, as he is hitting only .197, the 2016 10th rounder originally by the Rockies is now tied for the team lead in home runs alongside Ramos and David Villar with five. He is not really considered a top prospect but he can hit for power on the left side.
