The Twins selected Dallas Baptist outfielder Evan Bigley
in the tenth round of last year's draft. Bigley went on to be one of the top hitters for the Elizabethton Twins Appalachian League champions, hitting .300/.360/.587 with 13 doubles, 3 triples, 14 home runs and 47 RBI in 213 at bats.
The Twins moved Bigley up to Beloit this year, where he was hitting .307/.340/.446 with 22 RBI in 101 at bats before his promotion to Fort Myers. Bigley closed out his stay at Beloit with a 3 for 5 game, with two runs scored and two RBI in Beloit's win last Saturday.
In his first three games for the Miracle, Bigley was 7 for 13 (.538 Average) with four runs scored and three RBI. For the week, Bigley was 10 for 18 (.556 Average) at Beloit and Ft. Myers with six runs scored and five RBI. With 25 RBI, Bigley is tied with Luke Hughes for the organization lead.
This week was a great week for Evan Bigley. First he was promoted to Fort Myers, after hitting over .300 for the Beloit Snappers. Next, he was named by TCD Senior Writer Roger Dehring as this week's TCD Prospect of the Week. Congratulations Evan.
Bigley was promoted this past week.
