With just over a week done in the 2012 season, some prospects are standing out above the rest and we would like to give them their moment in the huge spotlight of Ted's Army. This week's spotlight is on Portland's (AA) outfielder, Juan Carlos Linares.
Through 36 at-bats over 9 games, Linares is batting .417, with 3 homers, 3 doubles, 8 RBI, and 3 walks. That translates into a .475 OBP, .750 SLG % ,to give you a total OPS of 1.225. Those are some pretty damn good numbers for a player on a 2-7 club.
Congratulations Juan Carlos Linares, you made the Ted's Army Spotlight. I think that is cause for celebration.
