Ronaldo Hernandez (Princeton 2017), Michael Siani (Greeneville 2018), and Mark Vientos (Kingsport 2017, 18) are Top Prospect Performers from Wednesday.
Rays: Ronaldo Hernandez, C (No. 7) -- 3-for-5, 2 RBI (Class A Advanced Charlotte)
Hernandez continued his hot streak and is 8-for-14 over the past four games after his latest three-hit performance. The 21-year-old has been red-hot lately and is hitting .349 through 11 games this month. Hernandez has the ability to be an impact performer on both sides of the ball as he projects to hit for both power and average and also possesses plus arm strength and catch-and-throw skills.
Reds: Michael Siani, OF (No.6) -- 2-for-4, SB (Class A Dayton)
Make that three straight multihit games for Siani, who is working on a five-game hitting streak and batting .341 in July. The 2018 fourth-rounder doesn't have a ton of power, but he does possesses a balanced approach. Once he gets on base Siani has above-average speed and has made the most of it, having already swiped 27 bases this season.
Mets: Mark Vientos, 3B (No. 4) -- 3-for-4, 2B, HR, RBI (Class A Columbia)
Vientos has 10 homers through 82 games this season -- one shy of his career high -- and it looks like it's only a matter of time until he surpasses that mark as homers have been coming in bunches recently for the 19-year-old. Vientos, a 2017 second-round pick, has homered four times in the past 10 games and in three of the past five. But it's more than just homers for Vientos, who also has hits in seven of those 10 games and is hitting .380 through 14 games this month. The Florida prep product was hitting .248 at the end of June and now sees his average sitting at .270 as he been raking in July. Vientos was one of the youngest players in his Draft class, which makes his current production all the more exciting.
