San Diego Padres C Austin Hedges, considered by MLB.com to be the No. 3 catching prospect in baseball and the organization's No. 2 overall prospect, has been promoted from Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore to Double-A Altoona. The move is based at least in part on the fact that San Antonio Missions C Robert Kral (undisclosed) is injured. Hedges was hitting .267 with three home runs and 26 RBIs for Lake Elsinore.
Fantasy Tip: Hedges is known more for his work behind the plate than beside it. Still, the soon-to-be 21-year-old continues to rise steadily and may be an NL-only asset in a few years.
