Ethan Salas gave his first HR as a professional

Young catcher is hitting .300 in his first six Class-A games

Ethan Salas; who turned 17 six days ago, is taking his first steps in professional baseball in the United States with the San Diego Padres organization. And on Tuesday, he hit the first home run of his minor league career, in what was the Lake Elsinore Storm (Class-A Padres) loss 6-5 to Fresno Grizzlies (Rockies).

The hit came in the sixth inning against Tyler Hoffman's deliveries, giving his team a 4-1 lead at that time, which later between the seventh and eighth stretch, would see how the Rockies branch would turn the game around.

It should be noted that this was Ethan Salas' only unstoppable in five turns in the game, where he also scored a run and drove in a couple of teammates; his first two of his fledgling stay in Class-A.

In this way, Ethan Salas continues to make an impact in the early stages of his baseball career. Well, he has a .300 average; product of six hits in 20 shifts during his first six games in the category. He added a double, six runs scored, seven walks, one stolen base, 10 bases and a .981 OPS in 27 visits to the batter's box.
