  1. Good to see my man Hudson off to a good start. That Williamsport team is really going to be run to follow. Question, is Perci Garner starting this season or are they already using him as a relief pitcher?

  2. From the recap: Cutters center fielder Kyrell Hudson reached on a single, stole second, and scored on a two-out RBI single by right fielder Kelly Dugan

    Hope to see alot of this from those first two picks from 09.

  4. For all of you that want to be the president of the Kyrell Hudson fan club… too late. I called dibs the day he was drafted.

    1. Boy was he terrible for the first two years though. I certainly hope he becomes another stud speedster in the Phillies OF, just expect him to move pretty slowly.

  5. Funny story, so I live in Columbia Missouri, and I was talking to a buddy at work and find out that our 4th round selection Cody Asche grew up here and my buddy played baseball with him in highschool. He said he didn’t like him too much, (his exact words were “kinda a douche”), but said the coaches always loved him. Also mentioned Cody’s dad was one of those crazy baseball dads who make their kids cry when they don’t do well. Who knows what the kid is like now, but just alittle interesting backstory, and a small world moment.

    1. First of all – Cody Asche played high school baseball for Fort Zumwalt West in OFallon MO not sure who your source is??? Also, Mego – why would you post bogus information related to Cody and his fathers character when you do not know them????

  6. Surpised Bastidas and Arias were the first two out for WPT. Both have been in foreign leagues for years and I think both would be exposed to the Rule 5 this year. To still be at WPT makes me think they are not prospects though both are college age appropriate for NYP league. Never hurts to have decent pitching.

  7. Williamsport Lineup. PLAY BALL!

  8. Cosart with a scoreless, 11 pitch, inning. He recorded two ground outs and threw 8 strikes. Pettibone started and Recorded a scoreless inning with a strike out. 13 pitches, 10 strikes.

  9. That non-top 30 prospect list is pretty impressive.

    Santana is more than holding his own in the FSL as an 18 year old. If he keeps making contact, the power will come.

    Would you consider re-signing Kendrick for another year,( assuming Oswalt leaves) to keep a spot warm for whichever proa

  10. *oops got cut off- …for whichever prospect might be ready in 2013? Who is next in line for a spot in the rotation after Worley? Rodriguez has been too inconsistent so I’d think maybe Pettibone or Cosart.

    1. Considering his performance so far this season I find it unlikely that the Phillies wouldn’t at least offer Kendrick arbitration.

      1. I’d be shocked if the Phillies offered Kendrick arbitration. He already makes 2.5 million. He might get close to 4 million for a 2nd year arbitration pitcher, with an ERA under 4.

        1. $4 mil is unlikely. That is about the amount that Liriano settled for this offseason and would be more than RPs such as Hong Chi-Kuo, Jason Frasor, and Darren O’Day got this offseason as well as SPs such as Johnny Cueto, Shawn Marcum, RA Dickey and Kevin Slowey. If Kendrick goes into arbitration asking for $4 mil he will lose.

          1. The arbitrators are not baseball people, they’re lawyers. They’ll look at very basic numbers (Wins, ERA, IP–maybe) and make a judgment based on that. Kendrick has pitched well thus far, so something like 3.5-4 seems likely to me as well. If Worley continues to pitch well this season, I’d be shocked to see KK offered arbitration.

          2. A lot of the names on that list are better pitchers than Kendrick. There’s no doubt about that. The problem is a lot of them have spent a significant amount of time on the DL. That counts in arbitration. Career ERA+, no DL time, previous year’s salary, this seasons’ ERA… yeah he will get a significant raise.

      2. I think they’ll non tender him and offer him a contract close to what he’s making now. He’s not as bad as everyone makes him out to be.

  11. well if kendrick is at the 2 million range for a year yes. because he is a spot starter and reliever. and we have the kids at not a lot of money in stutes,and bastardo. if swimmer or de fraus can replace stutes as seventh inning guy we get really cheap bullpen.and use bastardo and stutes as sometimes closer with contreas, figuring madson is gone, and believe rollins is too. but thats just imo.like anyonmous says offer arb, i dont know they could get burnt in arb, just try to sign him, no arb.

  12. The CLW pitchers sure made a splash is yesterday’s FSL All Star game. Pettibone started and didn’t allow a hit in his inning of work. That set the stage for CLW pitchers. Cosart, May and Rodriguez each did the same in their inning of work. May got the win. None of our pitchers allowed a baserunner. It was a weird for a moment when I saw Julio Rodriquez also played 1B and had a hi. I’m thinking… did they run out of position players? I clicked on him and found it was a different Julio R.

  14. Buchanan, 22, earned a spot in Tuesday’s South Atlantic League All-Star Game…

    Lakewood pitchers Garrett Claypool and Lisalberto Bonilla also made the all-star team,
    as did outfielder Anthony Hewitt and first baseman Jim Murphy.

    Hewitt in the All-Star Game? Does this mean anything at all? How did it happen?

  15. If you have the minor league video package from minorleaguebaseball.com, you should turn it on and watch the LhV/Pawtucket game. Why? Scott Mathieson is dealing. His fastball is sitting between 94-96 MPH, he is locating the pitch very well and is showing some good breaking stuff. 6 Ks through 3 innings. It’s very, very encouraging.

    Also, for good measure, I turned it on to watch Overbeck and see if the stuff they are saying about his power is accurate. Well, soon after I turned on the game, Overbeck launched a ball over the left field bullpen and into the parking. The kid has big time power, that much is clear.

    1. Why did Mathieson exit after 3.1? Was it because of pitch count? I see he had 62 pitches — and record 7 of the 10 outs by strikeout.

  16. Interesting minor league news in the paper today. David Buchanan was compared to Kyle Kendrick. This is not a bad thing. I think Kendrick is still learning how to pitch, and I have seen a new pitcher this year.

    The Phils can’t figure out J.C. Ramirez. They think he is very talented and throws very hard, but the wheels have come off. His last start was not bad. I think the Phils will find a way for this kid.

  17. if buchanan ceiling is a kendrick, thats nothing to get excited about. kenrick is a fifth starter or spot starter at best. not anything more. I am so interested in the payroll topic. its june and we are talking about next years number. who knows who might go in trade, take out oswalt numbers does it change any, take out ibanez, lidge, madson, put in raises, we dont know what they will do, i really think rollins is gone. which along with oswalt will open up money, some will used for a cheaper stop gap shortstop,so a lot can happen between now and then,

    1. I am hoping that the Phils let Rollins go and go after Jose Reyes. We hate him in a Met’s uniform, but he sure would look nice in Phillie’s pinstripes and powder blues! May be wishful thinking, but you never know?? He would be a major upgrade to the 2011 version of Jimmy Rollins.

  18. Jose reyes is going to be crap again as soon as he signs a big deal. He is a thug, a bad teammate, and would not fit in with this team at all. He is going to be paid based on this season and this season he will never replicate. Reyes’s 2011 is like Rollins 2007, and Reyes’s 2012-2014 will mirror Rollins’s 2008-2010, albeit for different reasons.

  19. I’d rather have 2011 Reyes than 2011 Rollins, but I’m not sure about 2012 Reyes vs 2012 Rollins…especially considering the contracts both are likely to get.

  20. Cody Asche palying 2nd base with Crosscutters—I assume the Phillies are hoping he may replace Utley in a few years.
