The 22-year-old Californian has hit .300 three straight years and was named to the Florida State League All-Star squad in 2005. Haerther earned a promotion from Palm Beach to Springfield (Double-A) in early June.
Overall, in 381 at-bats between Palm Beach and Springfield, Haerther hit .307 with 18 home runs and 67 RBI. In 53 at-bats in Arizona, the left-handed hitter is batting just .189 with five RBI.
I caught up with Cody Haerther this week.
