2005 Bowman, Nick Hundley

#BDP90 Nick Hundley

Here is the fourth of the five 2005 Bowman Padrographs. This one features Nick Hundley.

Nick was drafted in the second round of the 2005 draft out of Arizona. Like the previous two 2005 Padre draft picks I posted, Nick progressed steadily through the Padres farm system and he made his Major League debut in 2008. He got into 60 games that season and he hit .237 with 5 home runs and 24 driven in.

In 2009, Nick played five AAA games and spent the rest of the time on the big league roster. That season, he got into 78 games and he hit .238 with 8 home runs and 30 RBI. Last season, he played in 85 games and his average rose to .249 while hit hit 8 dingers and knocked in 43.

So far this season, Nick is off to a hot start. In just two games, Nick is 4-8 with a double, a triple, and four RBI. If he keeps progressing at the Major League level like he has been, Nick could be in for a pretty good season.

For the Opening Day contest, Night Owl won by correctly guessing Nick.
