I’m a tad late with this one, but Kody Hinze is the South Atlantic League Offensive Player of the Week for May 16. I photographed him just last month in Greenville.
MiLB.com says: “Astros prospect Kody Hinze, who played in 27 games with the Legends last year, is looking much sharper than the .175 average he managed during that stretch. His eighth-inning, two-run homer gave Lexington a 2-1 win against visiting Greensboro on Monday, and the team didn’t lose again until Hinze came up empty, going 0-for-3, on Saturday. From Wednesday to Friday, though, he was 8-for-12 with a homer, a pair of doubles, seven RBIs and four runs scored. He singled and struck out three times in Sunday’s loss to Greenville.”

Cesar Cabral of the Greenville Drive chalked up another 3.1 scoreless innings last night to pick up another save. He continued his scoreless inning streak to 16 over the past eight games.
