On of the top prospects in baseball, former two-sport ICC standout Desmond Jennings, was named the International League hitter of the week on Monday.
Jennings, a 23-year-old outfielder for the Triple-A Durham Bulls, hit .538 (14 for 26) over the past seven days, with 11 RBIs and nine runs scored.
The Birmingham native, the Southern League MVP last season, was in a mild slump as he began his first Triple-A season but is hitting .370 in June. That’s boosted his batting average to .286.
Jennings was a 10th-round draft pick out of ICC by Tampa Bay in 2006.
