Hood named Carolina League Batter of the Week

Another weekly honor for a Nats minor-leaguer

For the third straight week, a Nationals farmhand has taken home a weekly award, with Destin Hood nabbing the Carolina League Batter of the Week award for the period of May 16-22.

Hood batted .448 (13-for-29) during the week, which includes two hitless games on May 16 and 17, and hit seven doubles, a triple, and a home run while collecting 10 RBI. His 16 doubles for the season is now tied for the Carolina League lead and is the best in the system, three ahead of some kid named Harper, and is now hitting .287/.387/.490 overall.

  1. Hood, Perez and Harper might just make a pretty decent outfield in a year or two. In two years Werth will be old enough to be moved to become the athletic first baseman plus act as one “bench” player for the outfield.
