Certainly some conversation starters between Aumont/Bonilla/Duke/Knigge. Have at it.
Phillipe Aumont, 23, Acquired from Seattle in 2009; 24 games; 2-1 with a 4.15 ERA; 10 saves; 26IP 18H 23BB 37K; 2 HR allowed; 1.56 GO/AO; .189 opp. avg., 1.57 WHIP; 8.0BB/12.8K per nine; .222 vs. LH, .169 vs. RH, .211 with RISP. Since June 1: 1-0 with a 3.21 ERA in 12 games; 6 saves. Aumont struggled mightily in May with injuries and his command. He has been better as of late but stills needs more work. When he is on, he is filthy.
Tyson Brummett, 27, Phils 7t round pick in 2007; 4-1 with a 2.26 ERA in 26 games (2 starts) between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 2 saves; 51.2IP 38H 11BB 54K; 3 HR allowed; 0.95 WHIP; 1.9BB/9.3K per nine; 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in 19 games with Lehigh Valley. Brummett has pitched very well and is a completely different pitcher than in years passed. Not sure he has “big league” stuff but he has opened an eye or two this year.
Mike Cisco, 25, Phils 36th round pick in 2008; 24 games; 4-3 with a 1.11 ERA between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 2 saves; 48.2IP 42H 15BB 42K; 1.61 GO/AO; .240 opp. avg., 3 HR allowed; 1.17 WHIP; 2.7BB/7.7K per nine; Only 2 appearances for the ‘Pigs so far, 1-0 with a 1.29 ERA. Cisco has been excellent without being overpowering this year. Should be interesting to see how it translates to AAA.
Justin Friend, 26, Acquired in 2001 in the Minor League Rule 5 draft; 28 games; 3-0 with an 0.87 ERA; 15 saves; 31IP 24H 11BB 27K; 1.12 WHIP; 3.1BB/7.8K per nine; Has pitched in 3 games since his AAA call up and is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA and 1 save. Friend was outstanding in Reading. Should get a real chance at meaningful AAA innings down the stretch.
David Purcey, 30, Signed as a free agent in 2012; 29 games; 1-0 with a 3.93 ERA; 34.1IP 35H 21BB 41K; 0.74 GO/AO; .265 opp. avg., 1.63 WHIP; 5.5BB/10.7K per nine; .228 vs. LH, .293 vs. RH, .209 with RISP; 1-0 with a 2.57 ERA in 12 games since June 1. His control kills him. When he has control, he can be very effective.
JC Ramirez, 23, Acquired from Seattle in 2009; 26 games; 2-2 with a 3.52 ERA between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 4 saves; 38.1IP 29H 17BB 31K; 4 HR allowed; 0.76 GO/AO; .209 opp. avg., 1.20 WHIP; 4.0BB/7.3K per nine; .167 witrh RISP. Ramirez has pitched pretty well for Lehigh Valley. Not getting key innings consistently yet, but getting there.
BJ Rosenberg, 26, Phils 13th round pick in 2008; 20 games (1 start) between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 3-1 with a 1.62 ERA; 3 saves; 39IP 33H 9BB 47K; 1.03 GO/AO; .224 opp. avg., 1.07 WHIP; 2.0BB/10.8K per nine; .185 vs. LH, .286 vs. RH, .133 with RISP. Rosenberg has been outstanding although his brief trip to the majors was less than successful.
Joe Savery, 26, Phils 1st round pick in 2007; 6 games, 0-0 with a 5.00 ERA; 2 saves; 9IP 9H 2BB 10K; 1.71 GO/AO; .243 opp. avg., Savery has spent most of the season with the Phillies and was pretty bad during his stint there. With the ‘Pigs, Savery has been largely successful absent one outing where he got crushed.
Ryan Duke, 23, Phils 25th round pick in 2011; 28 games; 1-3 with a 3.03 ERA between Lakewood, CLearwater and Reading. 3 saves; 38.2IP 36H 15BB 53k; 2 HR allowed; 0.81 GO/AO; .252 opp. avg., 1.32 WHIP; 3.4BB/12.2K per nine; Duke was just recently called up to Reading and it will be interesting to see how he reacts to his quick assension through the organization this year. He has very good stuff.
Frank Gailey, 26, Acquired from Toronto in 2011; 25 games; 2-3 with a 6.39 ERA between Clearwater and Reading; 25.1IP 35H 13BB 24K 2HR allowed; 1.67 GO/AO; .333 opp. avg., 1.89 WHIP; 4.6BB/8.6K per nine. Local kid who I would like to be more positive about, but he has been simply bad.
Chris Kissock, 27, Phils 9th round pick in 2007; 11 games; 3-1 with a 7.63 ERA between CLearwater and Reading; 15.1IP 28H 5BB 12K; 3 HR allowed; 2.00 GO/AO; .384 opp. avg., 2.15 WHIP; 2.7BB/7.2K per nine.Kissock has spent a significant amount of time on the DL, perhaps explaining why his numbers have been so poor. Just recently called back up to Reading.
Lisalverto Bonilla, 22, Signed as a free agent in 2006; 30 games between CLearwater and Reading; 3-2 with a 1.59 ERA; 4 saves; 45.1IP 30H 21BB 62K; 1 HR allowed; 1.03 GO/AO; .189 opp. avg., 0.90 WHIP; 4.1BB/12.3K per nine. .256 vs. LH, .147 vs. RH, .125 with RISP. Bonilla has climbed the prospect charts as much as anyone this year putting up outstanding numbers. He has dominated more often than not.
Jay Johnson, 22, Signed as a free agent in 2011; 13 games between GCL, Clearwater and Reading; 0-0 with a 2.70 ERA; 13.1IP 13H 4BB 18K; For Reading, 8 games; 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA; 8IP 11H 2BB 8K; .324 opp. avg. Not enough work to pass judgment yet.
Juan Morillo, 28, Signed in 2012 as a free agent; 23 games; 0-2 with a 7.06 ERA; 29.1IP 25H 39BB 30K; 0.81 GO/AO; .234 opp. avg., 2.18 WHIP; 12.1BB/9.1K per nine; .209 vs. LH, .250 vs. RH, .289 with RISP; Morillo has lasted with the organization much longer than anyone with his WHIP and BB rate should. The fact that he throws 100 adds intrigue but he has little idea where the ball is going to go.
Colby Shreve, 24, Phils 6th round pick in 2008; 29 games; 4-3 with a 3.35 ERA between Lakewood, CW and Reading; 4 saves; 51IP 45H 22BB 43K; 1.86 GO/AO; .241 opp. avg; 1.31 WHIP; 3.8bb/7.6K per nine. WIth Reading: 10 games, 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA; 16IP 16H 9BB 8K; .262 opp. avg. Shreve got caught in the numbers game at the beginning of the year and is now pitching at the level he belongs. Should see consistent work with both Cisco and Friend in Lehigh Valley
DL: Ellis, Chapman,
Tyler Knigge, 23, Phils 12th round pick in 2010; 33 games; 4-1 with an 0.63 ERA; 9 saves; 42.2IP 25H 11BB 43K; 1.08 GO/AO; .169 opp. avg; 0 HR allowed; 0.84 WHIP; 2.3BB/9.0K per nine; .190 vs. LH, .159 vs. RH,156 with RISP. Simply doesnt get much better than this. Should be in Reading.
Colton Murray, 22, Phils 13th round pick in 2011; 25 games; 1-3 with a 4.30 ERA for Lakewood; 4 saves; 37.2IP 45H 16BB 34K; 3 HR allowed; 1.59 GO/AO; .294 opp. avg., 1.35 WHIP; 3.5BB/8.0K per nine; .356 vs. LH, .255 vs. RH; .216 with RISP. Just promoted to CLearwater. Pitches well so long as left handed hitters dont hit against him. Murray does bear down with RISP.
Hector Neris, 23, Signed as a free agent in 2010; 31 games; 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA; 6 saves; 42.2IP 33H 16BB 46K; 3 HR allowed; 0.50 GO/AO;214 opp. avg., 1.14 WHIP; 3.3BB/9.6K per nine; .164 vs. LH, .253 vs. RH, .214 with RISP. Neris has been a work horse and progressed very well this year.
Mike Nesseth, 24, Phils 17th round pick in 2010; 20 games (4 starts) between Lakewood and CLearwater; 6-1 with a 3.14 ERA; 3 saves; 51.2IP 36H 25BB 32K; 1.22 GO/AO; .190 opp. avg., 1.18 WHIP; 4.3BB/5.5K per nine; Nesseth was just called up to CLearwater last week. He pitched well in Lakewood, but as a 24 year old who pitched in college, he should. Nesseth knows how to pitch, lets see how it translates as he moves along.
Juan Sosa, 22, Signed as a free agent in 2007; 31 games; 4-4 with a 4.89 ERA; 3 saves; 42.1IP 42H 15BB 44K; 4 HR allowed; 1.34 WHIP; 3.2BB/9.4K per nine; .260 vs. LH, .256 vs. RH, .373 with RISP. Sosa’s stats look very similar to Neris until you reach RISP stats where Sosa is just abysmal.
Kyle Simon, 22, Acquired from Baltimore in 2012;16 games (14 starts); 3-8 with a 3.82 ERA; 77.2IP 90H 21BB 52K; 8 HR allowed; 2.60 GO/AO; .288 opp. avg., 1.42 WHIP; 2.4BB/6.0K per nine; Simon was just acquired in the Jim Thome deal last week. In the Orioles organization he was a starter but whispers are that the Phils will convert him into a reliever, a role in which he has thrown 5 scoreless innings in the Phils organization thus far.
DL: Claypool, Morgado,
