All the talk so far has been about the Brewers’ number one prospect Jackson Chourio who is in Double-A- Biloxi, but this player has been one of the hottest hitters since Mid-April and is a current teammate of Chourio
Meet Freddy Zamora who was drafted in the second round of the 2020 MLB Draft out of Miami In his last 10 games, Zamora is slashing .232 AVG, .333 OBP, and a.482 slugging percentage.
It’s been hard to assess Zamora so far in his career, as he’s dealt with injuries each of the past three seasons. First, a Torn left ACL before the 2020 season while entering his junior year with the Hurricanes wiped out his season, and contributed to his slow start while playing for the Carolina Mudcats (Milwaukee’s Low-A team.)
Zamora last season, hit.209 in 24 games before missing the rest of the season with a season-ending subluxed left shoulder injury.
Zamora excels at driving the ball the other way as evidenced by his second home run on Sunday.
This season, Zamora is batting .237, with four home runs, 18 RBIs, and a .827 OPS in 59 ABs.
Zamora is listed as a shortstop; it might be a couple of years before he gets called up to the big leagues, but this is a welcoming sign for Zamora’s development.
