Ricky Bennett has has some nice words to say about Lancaster outfielder Jay Austin:
“He does have some power. We have to remind him from time to time, ‘Hey, you've got to keep working on your bunting.' I think eventually he'll be a No. 1 or No. 2 hitter...We've really been focused on his plate discipline and his bunting. That has to be a part of his game, (and it's) something we talked about (a lot) in spring training.”
It also should be noted that the Hooks placed Fernando Abad on the DL with shoulder fatigue and soreness.
