PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It has been quite the start to the season for Reading outfielder Cameron Perkins.
A sixth-round pick of the Phillies in the 2012 draft out of Purdue, Perkins has hit the ground running at the Double-A level. He is hitting .338 with 19 runs scored, 18 runs batted in, 12 doubles and four steals through 33 games.
“I’m seeing (the ball) well, putting some good swings on good pitches,” Perkins told KYW Newsradio after one of Reading’s recent games in Trenton.
