Around the System–Corner Infield

It has been right around a month since our look at the Corners Infielders in the Phillies system, so here it goes again:

Neil Sellers, Age 28, .240/.313/.326 in 129 AB’s.  0HR and 11 RBI. .194 vs. LH, .255 vs. RH; .222 with RISP; 10%BB rate, 16% K rate. .216 in May.  Has played 16 games at 1B and committed 1 error (.993) and 13 games at 3B and committed 1 error (.971). After hitting with a good deal of power over the last two years in AA, Sellers seems to have lost his power without a homer yet for a struggling Lehigh Valley offense.  Sellers has hit the ball harder then his .244 avg. indicates, but his season thus far has had far less success then what was expected. Defensively, he has performed well.

Cody Ransom, Age 34, .235/.299/.470 in 166 AB’s.  10HR 31RBI, 2SB, .212 vs. LH, .241 vs. RH, .319 with RISP; 8% BB rate, 32% k rate. Has played 34 games at 3B and committed 11 errors (.872); 4 games in RF with two errors (.714) and 3 games at SS without an error.  Ransom has provided power and clutch hitting, but his defense has been awful and he strikes out a ton.

Andy Tracy, Age 36, .213/.322/.336 in 122 AB’s. 3HR 11RBI; .280 vs. LH, .196 vs. RH; .200 with RISP. 13% BB rate, 23% K rate. has played 30 games at 1B and committed 2 errors (.992).  8.30 range factor. 2010 has been very disappointing thus far for Tracy, who has missed about two weeks with nagging injuries most specifically his shoulder.  When he has played, he has struggled.

May 27th Open Discussion

Last night’s scores, and then lots of nonsensical banter about Cliff Lee.

Reading wins 5-3.

Worley with another solid start. Rizzotti 3/5 with 2 more HR

Clearwater wins 13-8.

JC Ramirez is back. 8 K and 0 BB are the key numbers for me, don’t care much about the 4 ER.
Overbeck with #11.

Lakewood wins 11-10.

Sleeper Julio Rodriguez with his debut. Lots of pitches, a few runs, but 6 K in 3.2 IP is at least promising.
