Top Toronto Blue Jays prospect and recent call up Addison Barger has finally collected his first career MLB hit.

Addison Barger's Night:
- First MLB Hit ✅
- First MLB Run ✅
- Game-Winning Run ✅


Last night (April 29th) against the Kansas City Royals, Barger went 1-4 while also scoring the game winning run.


He was back starting at third base, his natural position, and was 9th in the batting order. Barger secured his first big-league hit with a single to kick off the sixth inning. Despite his promotion, the 24-year-old has struggled, going 1-for-15 with four strikeouts.

While fielding in third base and both outfield corners, he's committed two errors, outnumbering his hits.


Is he ready for MLB baseball or should he be sent down to further his development?
