2015 Role: First Baseman for Triple-A Memphis
A legitimate right handed power threat, Xavier Scruggs has hit 20+ home runs in the minor leagues in each of the last five seasons. This year he made the jump to Triple-A Memphis and continued crushing the ball posting career highs in batting average, slugging, doubles, triples, hits and even brought the strikeouts down to boot. He had a terrific year for the Redbirds and played a core role in their lineup all season until his September promotion in the middle of their postseason run to provide support for Matt Adams.
