Aguila was recently the focus of a guest blog on this very site. Here's an excerpt:
Foreshadowing much? Good call, Ryan!
In 2008, Aguila is hitting .297 with 15 home runs and 31 RBI. However, in the past 10 games, Aguila is batting a hefty, .457 with 6 home runs and 12 RBI. He has 16 hits in 35 at-bats. These 10 games also included a hitting streak of 8 games which ended last night. His performance even gave him PCL Hitter of the Week.
This is Aguila's 12th professional year of playing, the majority while in the Minors. But he's shown poise and maturity. Aguila can play any outfield position, and is ready for a spot. If any of the current Met gets hurt, Aguila can easily take the spot on the bench. With a struggling Endy Chavez and a not so healthy Ryan Church, Aguila may make an appearance if Abraham Nunez and Fernando Tatis can't get the job done.
Aguila should get the call in the field tonight, so I'm pretty excited to see if he can keep up his hot streak/season and carry it to the majors. It's time to turn this team around, faulty piece by faulty piece.
