Trending Up: Jan Hernandez, OF, Reading

Hernandez is flying under the radar right now as a result of the Phillies depth in the outfield, but he is quietly having a nice season in AA.

The 23-year-old from Puerto Rico was hitting .321 as of June 2 with nine doubles, four home runs, and 26 RBIs.

He has a 5-RBI game this year and has shown some speed with a triple and four stolen bases.

There may not be room at the top of the organization for Hernandez, but he has been very good this year. This is the first time he has been able to find consistent success. He still has to develop further, but this is a good start for him.
