Wildwood product Luke Voit keeps hitting. I've said it a bunch this year, his age and position mean he will have to produce at the plate to keep moving up the ladder, but so far his line has improved at every stop. His homer last night was his 14th, which is already a single-season high for him...Allen Staton played at 3 different levels last year, but struggled when he got to full-season ball. He had trouble with Florida State League pitching again this year, but he was promoted to Springfield and moved to 2B, and he is knocking the cover off the ball in his first 58 at-bats, which is what second basemen do in Springfield.
