Nissan #ProJackets Baseball Report

June 28, 2017

THE FLATS -- With the Major League Baseball All-Star break quickly approaching, make sure to go HERE for your All-Star Game Ballot to vote for your #ProJackets! Tomorrow (June 29) is the last day to vote!

A #ProJacket that definitely deserves to be an all-star this year is Charlie Blackmon, as the center fielder leads the majors in hits (102), total bases (187), triples (10), and plate appearances (356). He also ranks in the top 10 in the MLB in games played (78), at bats (320), runs scored (62), slugging percentage (.584), RBIs (56) and extra base hits (43).

Here he is on High Heat.


In the minor leagues, a week after having three players named to their league's respective all-star teams, Daniel Spingola was promoted to the Tennessee Smokies (Double-A). Zac Ryan and Trevor Craport both made their professional debuts, while Ryan Peurifoy was assigned to the Bristol Pirates. 

Below is a complete list of the Baseball #ProJackets playing professionally this season.
