Diamondbacks prospect OF Mitch Haniger went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Monday for High-A Visalia, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.
Haniger opened the season at Double-A Mobile where he batted a respectable .281/.351/.379 but hit just one home run with 19 RBI in 55 games before a demotion to High-A Visalia in late June. However, the 24-year-old outfielder has been red hot since moving down to the hitter-friendly California League, where he’s posted a .364/.412/.818 batting line with seven home runs, 19 extra-base hits and 22 RBI in only 18 games. He’s done most of that damage during his current 10-game hitting streak, during which he’s batting .395 with five home runs, six doubles and 11 RBI. Jul 14 - 3:43 PM

Diamondbacks acquired OF Mitch Haniger and LHP Anthony Banda from the Brewers for OF Gerardo Parra.

Haniger is the prize of the return package. The No. 38 overall pick in the 2012 draft slashed an uninspiring .255/.316/.416 across 271 plate appearances for Double-A Huntsville. If he can pick up his developmental pace, a mid-season debut in 2015 isn't out of the question.

Brewers outfield prospect Mitch Haniger went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs.

Haniger was hitting .258/.321/.376 through his first 61 games, but has hit four home runs in his last two games, raising his season line to .266/.329/.432. He has the potential to hit .280 with 15-20 home runs at the major league level, though he has struggled to put up better-than-average numbers in the minor leagues. He is in line for a mid-2015 major league debut.

Brewers prospect OF Mitch Haniger homered in his third consecutive game on Sunday for Double-A Huntsville.

The No. 38 overall pick in the 2012 draft, Haniger batted .264/.348/.431 with 36 doubles, 11 home runs and a 92/57 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 129 games last season between Low-A Wisconsin and High-A Brevard County. The 23-year-old parlayed a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League and spring training into an Opening Day assignment to Double-A, where he's batted .206/.270/.529 with two doubles, three home runs and six RBI through nine games. Haniger is unlikely to contribute in the major leagues this season, but another solid campaign should set him up for a potential mid-season debut in 2015.

Brewers prospect Mitch Haniger went 1-for-3 with a homer, three RBI, two walks and a pair of runs scored as Surprise defeated Glendale 7-0 in Arizona Fall League action on Saturday.

Haniger has been hammering the ball early in the AFL season, slashing .394/.475/.667 with two homers and 12 RBI in his first nine games. The 22-year-old outfielder hit .264/.348/.431 with 11 homers, 68 RBI, nine stolen bases and a 92/57 K/BB ratio over 129 games between Low-A Wisconsin and High-A Brevard County. He's unlikely to make an impact with the Brewers in 2014.
