Around the SYstem–OF

A look at the Outfield throughout the system, as the Phils monitor both development and who may be expendable for the right player.

Brief write-up of LV game Thursday night

I was at the Lehigh Valley game Thursday.

Savery’s outing was interesting. First, he came into the game in the third inning after a reliever (Concepcion) had started, and finished things out.  I don’t know why they brought him in out of the pen, but it seemed to hep him. He mixed in a lot of pitches, threw a lot of 84-86 mph sinkers. Threw one FB at 89, which was his maximum velocity.
