Dodgers prospect hit three straight HR games in Double-A

The sought-after Venezuelan prospect of the Dodgers, Diego Cartaya, has started to look different over the past seven days in Double-A Tulsa.

After starting the year with a .190 average, .288 OBP and .337 slugging percentage in 26 games, the slugger entered Wednesday's game having combined for a .893 OPS in his last six games. He had scored eight runs in that span, two of them home runs.

“I'm just trying to keep it simple at the plate, just put the ball in play,” Cartaya said. “I feel like when I do that, good things happen.”

Heading into Wednesday's game, Diego Cartaya had homered in back-to-back games, and he wasted no time in extending that streak.

After three pitches into his first at-bat, he hit a solo shot to left field. Baseball's top catching prospect posted an exit velocity of 101 mph on the drive.

Cartaya hit another extra-base hit in his next turn, with a double to left field.
