The 6-foot-2, 220-pound, 24-year-old, left-handed hitter was 11-for-22 (.500) with three doubles, two homers, seven runs scored and four RBIs last week for a .577 on-base percentage and a .909 slugging percentage for a 1.486 OPS. The Padres' fourth-round pick in the 2015 draft ranks sixth in the Texas League in hitting (.373) and is second with six homers while leading the league in both slugging percentage (.780) and OPS (1.202).
Insider's Notes: Austin had a tremendous offseason focused on getting his body in shape. He's always been known for his stick at the plate. There was a heavy focus on his flexibility during the winter months; he got to a point where he could do the splits.
