Jose Azocar is on a batting hot streak as the San Antonio Missions return to town for tonight’s home opener at Wolff Stadium.
Azocar had hits in the last four games of the Missions’ recent road series in Midland. He was 7-of-18 (.389) over that stretch with a three-hit game and a two-hit game.
The 25-year-old outfielder from Venezuela is batting .283 for the season with three walks and three RBIs. He has played in all 12 Missions games this season.
Two years ago, Azocar batted .286 with 10 home runs in 129 games in Double-A in the Detroit Tigers organization. Azocar was originally signed by the Tigers in 2012. He was signed by the San Diego Padres as a free agent to a minor lealgue contract in November 2020.
