Simple approach has Bisons star Matt Hague hitting .350

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Matt Hague isn’t worried about a potential call-up or his gaudy stat line. He’s just focused on the next at-bat.

“I know in the past, when I thought about getting called up in September when I was with the Pirates, I think I went on to hit about .200 the last month. So I kind of learned the hard way not to think about that,” said Hague.

The 29 year old leads the league with a .350 batting average right now, a full 22 points ahead of the next-closest man on the leaderboard.

He’s really stressed the importance of not wasting at-bats this season, learning from each of his outs.

Hague’s also kept in touch with Chris Colabello, who’s hitting .321 with the Blue Jays after an early-season call-up from Buffalo. Colabello’s similar to Hague, he’s 31 and only had two years in the majors before this season.

If he keeps hitting like this, it might be tough to keep him in the minors much longer.
