Rockies first base prospect Brian Mundell set the South Atlantic League record for doubles in a season with his 56th two-bagger on the year. The previous record-holder, Scott Seabol, set the record at 55 in 1999 with the Greensboro Grasshoppers. He has a chance to hit 60 doubles in a minor league season, a feat that hasn’t happened since 1956. With 10 games left in the season, there’s a good chance he’ll get there.

Mundell has gotten some attention for his offensive output this year on this site. The seventh-rounder out of Cal Poly has produced a .322/.388/.522 batting line over 500 at-bats in his first full professional season. The system is sorely lacking in first base prospects, but Mundell is at the top of that list. Only, this is still a relatively new position for him. At Cal Poly, Mundell served primarily as a designated hitter and as a catcher early on. That will likely slow his advancement through the system a bit, but once he’s got the defensive side down, we might be seeing his name in a Colorado uniform sooner than you think.
