Another week, another edition of Hot or Not.
–Excellent week for hitters throughout the organization with Dom Brown having perhaps one of the best offensive weeks in the system this year. Another three weeks of solid production and the Phils will have a decision to make, as he continues to improve his OF route running.
–The whispers are beginning about when/if to move Jesse Biddle up to Reading based on his recent dominance. I would give it at least another 6 or 7 starts at High A with similar results to what we have seen lately.
–There has been some debate about whether concern about Trevor May’s recent performance is “too early”. Its not based upon him having to be sent back to Low A less than a year and a half ago to get himself straight.
–Interesting week for Ethan Stewart who may have set a Phuture Phillies record by appearing on the Not Hot list for both starters and relievers. Stewart got back on track last night with a nice outing for Lakewood.
–Brody Colvin appears to be gaining some confidence in the bullpen. How log do the Phils keep him there?
–Watching Steve Susdorf, he is a player that simply knows how to hit. He came out of a major college program and has translated his success there to the upper minor league level nicely.
