Matt Szczur Is Getting Hot In Daytona

Last time we checked in on former Villanova two sport star Matt Szczur, he was struggling mightily after a week or so of games. That continued to a degree in April, but late in the month he picked up, and over the past ten games, he is hitting .318/.362/.500 line. In 31 games this season, he's hitting .254/.354/.357. One very encouraging trend during this season is that he is walking often and not striking out a ton, which is very important for a player without a ton of home run power. Another positive is the fact that he has been successful on 16 of his 20 stolen base attempts, which is well above average, but that's not a huge surprise because everyone has known that he's fast. If Szczur continues his hot streak, he could be off to AA at around the All-Star break or a little thereafter.
