Matt Szczur Rides The Bus: Fifth Home Run Edition

Former Villanova football and baseball star Matt Szczur is making his case to be promoted to the Daytona Cubs after the upcoming Midwest League all star game as he has clearly been outperforming the level that he currently is playing in. On Saturday, Szczur went 1-4 with a home run for the Class A Peoria Chiefs.

Through 50 Games (231 Plate Appearances):
  • .324 BA
  • .381 OBP
  • .462 SLG
  • 68 Hits
  • 12 2B
  • 1 3B
  • 5 HR
  • 19 BB
  • 19 SO
  • 15 SB (4 CS)
While his batting average has gone down, that is likely just a function of his luck on balls in play regressing back to the mean. His slugging percentage has risen, and his walk/strikeout rates have stayed fairly stagnant.  There's really little more for him to show at this level, and if he isn't promoted soon, it's a bit of a head scratcher.
