After a slow start this season, the Stockton Ports have picked up the pace in late May and into June…
Recker On Homer Barrage
Recker has been particularly impressive against left-handed pitchers this season. In 31 at-bats versus soutpaws, Recker is batting .419 with four homers and a 1343 OPS. He hasn't been shabby against right-handers either, as he has posted a 904 OPS in 142 at-bats.
Recker is tied for fourth in the California League in homeruns and is tied for eighth in RBI. He is also tied for first in sacrifice hits.
The A's selected Recker out of Alvernia College in the 18th round in the 2005 draft. He has been a mid-season all-star in each of his two full minor league seasons and has quickly established himself as a legitimate catching prospect in the A's system.
The Ports' back-up catcher, Raul Padron, has been on a power kick of his own. On Friday, he hit his third homer in as many games and he has four on the season.
