Brooks Lee has shown an impressive bat so far in the 2022 Double-A season and sits at No. 18 overall on MLB's prospect list.

The shortstop is 15-for-27 in his last seven games for the Double-A Wichita Wind Surge with 9 runs scored, five doubles, four home runs, and 12 RBI's.

This past Wednesday, Lee recorded three hits including a home run that counted for his third in the past four games.

Lee reached base in all five of his plate appearances Wednesday night, drawing a walk in the seventh inning and reaching base on a throwing error in the ninth inning.

The switch-hitter is currently leading the Texas League in doubles with 30. He sits sixth in RBIs and seventh in hits.

Lee was selected eighth overall in the first round of the 2022 Draft for the Minnesota Twins after electing to play under his father at Cal Poly.

He is projected to get the call-up in 2024, but with the way his bat has been swinging, it could be sooner rather than later.
