Heliot Ramos clearly forgot what happened in June and had a scorching hot week before heading to Colorado to play in the Futures Game. He’s clearly a hitter that’s too good to not bounce back after an abysmal month. I look forward to see Ramos to pick up right where he left off after the Futures Game and have a strong second half of the season for the Flying Squirrels.
One of the solid surprises this year for the Flying Squirrels has been third baseman David Villar. It seemed like Villar has gotten better as he gets more experience against Double-A pitching as his batting average has consistently improved over the season. His 11 home runs this season also lead the team and his defense at the hot corner has consistently been 50-grade quality. With the way he’s playing this season, there’s a possibility of a Triple-A call-up near the end of the season.
This week also has seen the addition of Will Wilson and Diego Rincones to the squad after their strong play as Emeralds. Their additions greatly improve the talent level of the Double-A roster and while they are off to a rocky start, expect the duo to quickly find their footing and make an impact on both sides of the ball in the second half of the season.
