I get to see him play on Tuesday for the first time when they come to Richmond.

Excited to see him.

Have fun.  His average is up to .248.

I really like this AA team.  Pitching isn't full of prospects (I like Rosenbaum and Mandel), but the bats have come alive recently (and as we all know I'm a fan of Kobernus/Hood).

Hate to go all hammonds here, but holy crap is Hood jacked. :az:

He's making the other guys on the team look liked underdeveloped teenagers.

Wasn't he a tight end at Alabama?

Recruited as a WR/S.

He's gotten quite a bit bigger since entering pro baseball. He was around 190-200 in high school.

Kind of an uncomfortable stance... but he's certainly got the size to be a power hitter in the future.

While the last photo didn't show it... this one should. Dude is built. Looks more like a safety than a WR.

yeah the one thing you notice is when you go to one of his games, he stands out among other players.  one of the beat writers was like, "he looks like a big league player".  but of course rizzo loves beef!

the power is the last thing to come.  once he gets it, he could be a good one.

uh oh wrist problems for Hood.  been hurting him since spring (which could attribute to some of the struggles at the plate).  nats being very, very cautious with him.

I think Hood is getting ready to be activated and head back to AA/Harrisburg. 

Went 1-for-4 with a walk and played 9 innings. 

Was his 4th game with Auburn.

Hood's first game back for Harrisburg after a month of sitting out with wrist injury.  1st AB drilled Gerrit Cole (last year's top pick - Pirates) off the head for an RBI single.  Cole gave up 3 runs in the first, then left the game.

Whoa, that's scary. Hope Cole is OK.

it did not look good at first.  he was laying on the ground for minutes when the training staff came out to look at him.  but he got back up to a big applause (game is in harrisburg).  almost got decapitated again on the next hitter.

i'm sure they ended his day after that inning as a precaution.

I'm amazed they even let him pitch at all after that.

2-for-4, RBI (20), walk in his return last night :clap:

Kris Watts (senators catcher): "You're always thinking worst-case scenario when it happens, especially how hard 'Hoody' hits the ball. It just happened so quick. You take a minute and pray that he's okay.''

Fantastic game for Hood last night ...

2-for-3, HR (2), 4 RBI (27)

it's amazing how many RBIs he's had this year despite missing over a month.

he needs to have more games like last night in order to even garner a conversation.  i think he's in the right place right now, let him work out his struggles, get hot and then we'll see.

I doubt it... he's still young, so he'll likely start next year in AA again before getting a bump to AAA with good performance and then maybe a September call-up in 2013.
