Adam Loewen Update

The last time we checked in on Adam Loewen, he was floundering in the Arizona Fall League after a long first full season in the minors.  Despite having sub-par numbers at High-A Dunedin in 2009, Loewen was promoted to AA New Hampshire this season. (For the full Adam Loewen story, click here)

Loewen struggled in April, hitting a mostly empty .228, yet still stole 6 bases which is surprising for a man as big as he is – 6’6″ 235lbs.  With May comes warmer weather and Loewen heated up in turn with a .303 average and .881 OPS.

The beginning of June has seen Loewen on fire.    In 11 games so far this month Loewen has hit at a .405 clip with an OPS of 1.241.

Adam’s coming-out party happened last night in a Fisher Cats 11-5 win over the Erie Seawolves.  Loewen went 5/5 with 3 doubles, his 8th home run of the season and 4 RBI.  He also chipped in an OF assist, nabbing Garth Iorg’s son Cale at third base.  This night boosted his average from .285 to .303. 

He still strikes out 25% of the time which is concerning, but if Loewen can keep this up he should find himself in Vegas before long, or at the very least up his trade value.
