Farm Fresh: Rob Segedin raking in Oklahoma City
By Cary Osborne
In case you forgot about him, Rob Segedin is sending a reminder from Oklahoma City.
The big-league Dodgers’ co-leader in home runs in Major League Spring Training last month (with four) extended his hitting streak for Triple-A Oklahoma City to 12 games on Tuesday with two hits — a triple and a double.
In that span, he is 20 for 49 with five doubles, three triples and two home runs. He hasn’t walked during the run.
Here’s where it gets interesting. Segedin is tied for the Pacific Coast League-lead with three triples. In 1,907 previous minor league plate appearances, he had eight triples or one every 238.4 plate appearances.
His average this year is one every 25.3 times at the plate.
Segedin ranks seventh in the PCL in slugging (.644), 10th in OPS (.999) and second in strikeouts (29). The 27-year-old was acquired by the Dodgers in January.
