Jamie D’Antona ripping up AAA

No, not this AAA, no one can ever rip that dude up, whoever he is.

Jamie D’Antona, a 26-year old player that plays third base, first base, and emergency catcher for Tuscon in the Diamondbacks organization is hitting .420/.448/.650 so far this year, and his hot start could very well earn him a callup to the Majors, his first callup. He was drafted in 2003. He hit .308 last year, and although the Pacific Coast League is a definite slugger’s league, leading that league in batting average will help your cause quite a bit. What hasn’t helped him is his defense, which is suspect, and with Augie Ojeda, Chris Burke, Robby Hammock/Miguel Montero and others with superior defense, D’Antona isn’t needed at this point of the season. But if the D’Backs need a pinch hitter if someone like Jeff Salazar goes down, they know who to go to.
