The eight Gamecocks in the Major Leagues are 10 days in to the 2020 season.

The Major League Baseball season is in full swing with eight Gamecock alumni on rosters, one making his debut in the show and one continuing his All-Star performance of last season. Here’s a recap of the first 10 days for the Gamecocks in the Show.

  • Jackie Bradley Jr. (Boston Red Sox) – Bradley Jr. is hitting .276 with four runs scored and three RBI in nine games for the Red Sox. He had two highlight-reel catches in center in the first weekend against the Baltimore Orioles.
  • Grayson Greiner (Detroit Tigers) – Greiner has split time at catcher for the Tigers with Austin Romine. He has played in five games with seven at-bats and a run scored.
  • Whit Merrifield (Kansas City Royals) – Merrifield has a league-best 25 total bases to go along with eight runs scored, three doubles and three home runs for the Royals in 10 games. He had back-to-back three RBI performances at Detroit on July 27-28.
  • Jordan Montgomery (New York Yankees) – Montgomery had a stellar first outing of 2020 on July 31 against Boston in Yankee Stadium. The southpaw allowed just one run with four strikeouts in 5.2 innings pitched to earn the win.
  • Justin Smoak (Milwaukee Brewers) – Smoak has four hits, three runs scored and a home run in six contests for the Brewers. He hit his first home run in a Brewer uniform in Wrigley Field on July 25 in a win over the Cubs.
  • Christian Walker (Arizona Diamondbacks) – Walker is hitting .314 with five doubles, six runs scored and six RBI in nine games for the Diamondbacks. Walker was 2-for-4 with three RBI in a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 31.
