Los Angeles Angels prospect David Fletcher arrived at Smith's Ballpark a little less than two hours before stepping into the starting lineup for his Triple-A debut for the Salt Lake Bees on Saturday night. Fletcher, a shortstop who doubled in his first at-bat, wasn't enough to get the Bees over the hump as they dropped their second consecutive game to the Sacramento River Cats, 4-3, in front of an announced 11,442.
Fletcher, who the Angels drafted in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, came into this season rated by Baseball America as the 12th-best prospect in the Angels' farm system entering the season. He went 1 for 4 and doubled down the right-field line in the second inning. Jefry Marte collected three hits in the loss.
