26-year old righty swinging outfielder Matt McBride is ripping the ball in AAA so far this year. He has played in 33 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 46 for 128 (.359 avg, .920 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 4 homers and 22 RBIs. McBride has only walked 4 times this season, so he’s swinging at everything, yet he’s hitting the ball well. McBride has now played in 595 games in his first seven years in the minors and he is 639 for 2,236 (.286 avg, .815 OPS) with 334 runs scored, 73 homers, 373 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. McBride could get his first shot at the show in 2012 if he keeps raking in AAA.
