Austin Wells, the Yankees top prospect, has been named “Hitter of the Week” in the Arizona Fall League for the week of Oct. 18-23.

In three games for the Surprise Saguaros, the 28th overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft combined for 5 RBI with three doubles, a triple and a home run – good for a slash line of .538/.600/1.154 and an OPS of 1.754.

After a pedestrian week one, the young slugging catcher exploded onto the scene in week two, nabbing all five of his extra-base hits of the year and improving his albeit early season slash line to .409/.480/.773.
