Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Saturday, 5-4: Devin Lohman, Pensacola. This was an easy one. Lohman, whose career to date has been noticeably quiet, has uncharacteristically made quite a bit of noise lately. He was MiLPOD a couple weeks ago, and last night repeated by going 3-3 with two home runs and two walks, scoring all of the Wahoos' runs in an 8-3 defeat. Known mostly for his speed and glove, the former third-rounder (2010) led off and played shortstop.
