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.”
