Royals prospect 3B Hunter Dozier was 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI Thursday for High-A Wilmington.
Dozier, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2013 draft, got off to a rough start at Wilmington, batting just .157 through his first 12 games. Since then, however, the 22-year-old has been on a tear at the plate, with a 1.029 OPS, two extra-base hits, seven RBI and 6/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in his past 10 contests. Overall, Dozier batted .259/.360/.341 with four doubles, one home run, 13 RBI and a 20/11 strikeout-to-walk ratio in the first month of the season. If Dozier finishes the season in Double-A (as he should), it would put him on pace for a major league debut some time in 2015.
