Georgia Regents has an outfielder with the talent for one of the more anticipated junior seasons in program history.

 

Center fielder Clint Hardy already produced a memorable sophomore season in 2015 by hitting .445 with eight home runs and 11 stolen bases while playing solid defense up the middle. He was named a third-team All-American in Division II by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, as well as Peach Belt All-Conference and All-Region.

 

His final batting average ranked eighth in the country.

After putting together a memorable hot streak over more than a week, Augusta GreenJackets catcher Aramis Garcia received the first of what should be several accolades for his performances.

 

Garcia was named the South Atlantic League Player of the Week for July 13-19.

 

The 22-year-old went 10 for 21 with a double, three home runs and 10 RBI over a five-game span that covers the award. The hot streak dates back to July 8 and so far spans 10 games, during which he's 20 for 42 (.476) with three doubles, five home runs and 19 RBI.

Two 2012 draft picks who spun their wheels over a few pro seasons are no longer in the San Francisco Giants organization after a flurry of recent minor league moves.

 

Augusta GreenJackets infielders Jeremy Sy and Ryan Jones are no longer in the system after Jones was released Wednesday and Sy retired Thursday. The two were drafted one round apart by the Giants in 2012, with Sy going in the 12th out of Louisiana-Monroe and Jones going in the 13th out of Michigan State.
