  1. Im just gushing over Domonic Brown. His approach has done a complete 360. Getting his pitches and making it count.

    1. The only bright spot in a miserable game. Wonder how soon Charlie will let him face some lefties.

    2. I remember week ago, there were 2 or 3 people saying he should be sent down, he was a minor league player, was folding under the pressure, etc., etc. And then he goes 10-19 with 3 2B, a HR and a BB in the next 6 games. .526/.550/.842 in that span. He will cool down some of course, but wow.

      1. Brown is so interesting. Obviously, the athletic talent is there and he just beams with ability. The weird thing about Brown is that, you look at his swing and it looks like it’s long and slow. But it isn’t slow. Brown has this nearly unique ability to track the ball and put the good part of the bat on the ball. I’ve been saying this since I saw him hit in ST 2010. He can adjust his bat mid-swing to place the good part of the bat on the ball. I’ve seen contact hitters like Boggs, Gwynn and Ichiro do this. But it’s a very, very unusual skill in a potential power hitter and bodes well for some extraordinary things in the future. What we don’t know, however, is how Brown will adjust when the pitchers inevitable begin to take that long swing and bust balls high and inside on him. We’ll just have to see if he can make the adjustments; he certainly has a good eye and that should help, at least a little.

        1. “He can adjust his bat mid-swing to place the good part of the bat on the ball.”

          Good observation. I remember the HRs he hit off Verlander in Spring Training, I couldn’t believe how well he pulled in his hands mid-swing to get the barrel on the inside fastball. I jumped out of my chair!

          To paraphrase Charlie Manual, as a hitter you want slow feet and fast hands. Brown gets his lower half moving early, slowly, and then whips his hands through at the point of contact. It looks like a swing with many parts, probably because his hands start high and his lower half starts early, but when he’s ready to swing, his body and hands are in the right position and boy does he have some bat speed.

        1. the saying never was 360 unless you are referring to a dunk – otherwise its 180 as pointed out by Phil

  2. DeFratus continues to pitch well. His WHIP was way too high in the beginning of the year but it is around 1 in the last 10 games. I would like to see him go toAAA soon. Cosart with another good start. He finished 4-0 for May and has won 5 straight decisions. So do the Phils limit his innings this year?

    1. Cosart hasn;t really pitched all that many innings so far. He’s only gone 7 IP or more twice. I bet the Phils want to get his IP up to a normal starter’s workload and would only shut him down if he started to show signs of physical wear and tear.

      In yesterday’s thread, Rickey Branch had an informative post about Cosart’s start saying he was wild then came out with a blister or something. The results back up the wildness comment – 8 baserunners in 5 2/3 IP.

      1. He gave up a lead off homer to start the game and then no more runs despite the walks. he must have made the pitches when he needed to.

      2. Cosart is valuable enough that I would think of limiting him to maybe 130-140 IP this year. He really has never thrown lots of innings so I would shut him down in August or let him be in the bullpen for minimal innings.

    2. I suspect so. I don’t see him throwing more than 140 innings or so. That’s an exciting rotation down in Clearwater. Every game is notable, for better or worse

      1. I’m thinking Cosart, Colvin and Rodriguez throw 120 innings while Pettibone and May get stretched out more between 120-150. They can have Cloyd start in the second half if needed or they can call up Buchanan, Claypool, or Hollands once the young guys hit their max IP.

  3. A walk-fest is the Phils South American games. 10 BBs in the VSL and 14 in the DSL. Interesting thing is they won both games. The winning pitcher, Escaray, had 5 in 1 inning of work. And he didn’t give up a run.

    When did the Phils pick up Walrond? He’s an old friend of ours. He must have been in the Independent Leagues because MiLB says he hasn’t played in the Minors or Majors since 2008.

    Rosenberg continues to be an interesting development. He pitched 5 scoreless, 3 hit innings and then gave up 4 hits with one being a 2 run HR in the 6th.

    1. And on a bad note, an inauspicious debut for Franklyn Vargas with 5 BB, 2 H, 3 ER in his 1.1 debut innings.

    2. That’s hilarious about Escaray.

      Regarding Rosenberg, I’m sure some of you posters out there were at the game last night. What were his velocity readings? I was a little disappointed by his lack of strikeouts, but it did look like another good start.

      1. Rosenberg was around 88 – 90 on the supposedly slow Reading gun. Rosenberg was noticeably tired in his last inning. DeFratus was also at 88 – 90 and touched 91 a few times. Funny minor league game occurrence: With Reading holding a 1 run lead in the 8th, they bunt Galvis to 2nd for Overbeck who promtly strikes out on three 92 mph heaters right down the middle. Rizz comes up and the same pitcher, rather than walking him with 1B open or staying with the fastball that looked so good to Overbeck, throws back to back off speed pitches, both wild pitches, to allow the important run to score. That’s minor league baseball!

        1. Thanks Murray. I think it would be pretty impressive if Rosenberg can hold the same velo as DeF over multiple innings. Hopefully DeF’s velo isn’t down.

          1. DeFratus isn’t nearly major league ready yet. His control still needs lots of work. He hung one change up but then later got two Ks on change ups. The ability is there but he needs to be more consistent. Rosenberg is interesting too though. He was the forgotten man but he’s throwing the ball very well and I would add him into the mix of guys that could get a shot at a bullpen job in Philly next year. He needed to become a multiple inning guy and he appears to have done that.

        2. The reading stadium gun is terrible. I saw a few of the radar gun readings from the scouts guns and Rosenberg was around 92-95 all game.

  4. So Sebastian Valle continues to kill the opposition but his walk rate is stunningly low. I know Chooch went through some of this in his development. At what point does Valle need to develop his pitch selection before becoming overwhelmed at higher levels?

    1. Pretty soon. The jump to AA will be a real eye opener for him if he hasn’t developed a better sense of the strikezone/patience at the plate. The lack of walks is a huge red flag for him right now. I suspect they’ll take a slow approach with him and it might even be 1 level a year as they like to give catchers time to develop their defense/game calling anyway.

      1. Agreed, although there’s still plenty to get excited about with his strong start this season. He’ll be in Clearwater all season and I suspect his Avg will decline without better plate discipline. I’d love to see him hit .290 plus though

        1. There is definitely a TON to be excited about with Valle. He’s shown legitimate power at a defense first position. The only caveat is that he’s very raw and it will take a lot of time for him to develop.

  6. I have to confess that I’d kind of forgotten about De Fratus a little, just because the LHV relievers have been such an important key to the Phillies success this season. (Something a lot of people here predicted, incidentally.) It’s great to see both him and Aumont having so much success in Reading this year. At some point, the big league bullpen is going to get pretty crowded, but this year’s experience certainly shows the value of having a lot of young arms with minor league options to stash at AAA in case of need.

    1. It will be nice to not have to overpay for mediocre retreads like Baez in the years going forward.

  7. Cesar Hernandez is up to 214 on the year after hitting 262 in May and 297 in his last 10. however, he’s still hitting only 122 against lefties (he’s a switch hitter and I assume a natural righty). Valle is up to 326 after hitting 392 in May and Singleton is back to 266 after hitting 306 in his last 10 (at 1B). Is the assumption that Savery and Singleton switched positions to give Savery a chance to go to Reading to play LF there?

    1. Sat behind home plate last night wondering just how many on last night’s Clearwater roster will play in the majors one day. Came up with four position players: Valle, Cesar Hernandez, Singleton and maybe James if he hits a little more. Pitching: all five starters have a shot. 9 out of a 24 man roster someday on a MLB roster is close to some kind of record. Cesar was most impressive last night with the bat squaring up a double down the first base line and lining a single to left. See him having a big rest of the season. Valle’s bat just explodes at the ball and puts it in the air when it crosses the plate. He lined singled to left and gapped a double to right center. His two out were fly balls to center. His offensive power numbers will sky rocket when he gets to Reading. You want him staying aggressive. Closer Friend has a nasty slider from a 3/4 slot angle that over matches A+ ball hitters. One of them struck out swinging looking like he was using a fly swatter. Interesting to see what Friend can do at a higher level. Cosart was OK, not dominating. Something was bothering him and it appeared to be a blister as he exited off the mound with the trainer looking at his hand with two out in the 6th.

    1. No but it is not a bad question. Valle being able to play a decent catcher is very valuable, especially when one considers the poor state of catchers in the majors – most of them can’t hit. Singleton though is more than a year younger and has better plate discipline. I’ll still take Singleton, but you did make me think.

    2. No. While Valle is raking, and for me, I’m not worried about the lack of walks as long as he’s hitting .300… Singleton is the all around complete hitter. (Power, Walks, Average)

  8. Steve throught the years there have been some good hitter,who refused to walk. one of them is pirated catcher in 70’s manny santiago thinks that how it was spell. and there are others.

    1. Manny Sanguillen from Panama. Career .296 hitter in 13 years and 3x all-star. Walked 223 times in 13 years.

      1. Sanguillen also rarely struck out. Ran a search on catchers and walks. Valle walks in about 1.5% of his plate appearances right now. At 3% or less in the majors, don’t see any catchers sticking. Brian Harper walked less than 4% of the team, but he had an extremely odd career path. (Converted to outfielder, converted back to catcher in his late 20s.) Kenji Johjima rarely walked but the league started catching up to him.

        Expand the search to 5% or less and you get Pudge Rodriguez, Sanguillen, AJ Pierzynski, Bengie Molina, Sandy Alomar. Pat Borders.

        Miguel Olivo looks like an interesting low end comp. If Valle became Olivo with a better batting average, you’d have something good on your hands.

        1. Does Valle strike out much? If not, I’m not worried about the lack of walks yet. He’ll be fine. Its not like pitchers down there are trying to pitch around him and he’s swinging at balls out of the zone. At least I don’t think that’s happening….

        2. One reason why teams like catchers to walk is that a lot of them hit 8th in front of the pitcher and thus see NOTHING to hit.
          Catchers who bat higher up in the order (like Sanguillen who could really run) it is not as important.

  9. Was De Fratus just throwing offspeed pitches for 2 innings then? 88-91 isn’t 95+ . Maybe he’s “just working on things” or the Reading gun is very slow. All I know is that it’s going to interesting to see who is protected this fall with Savery,Rizz,May,Overbeck,Rosey,Schwim & Susdorf turn comes around.

    1. There’s no 95 in sight. He threw fastballs, and some sliders and he threw an 80-81 change up. The reality is that a 92 fastball with movement is more efective than a straight 95.

    2. Must have missed some turns. Savery, Rizzotti came up last season. Schwimer I think they add, maybe before season’s end. Have to look it up, but May , I believe , was a younger drafteee so would n’t be for next Rule 5. Rest iffy, don’t see alot of room for them and selection in MLB portion questionable. Have to look more.

  10. Nice to see Baez back to his ole self.

    Really love the way Mayberry has played CF, very impressive.

    Is it just me, or does Jimmy Rollins not even come close to running out ground balls anymore? You’d think watching Chase bust down the line like it’s Game 7 of the World Series that Jimmy could at least give half the effort of a guy with a major knee problem but I guess not.

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed this. I can understand it given the hamstring and calf problems he’s had… but when you watch Chase, I don’t see how you can’t be a little annoyed.

    2. Yeah, I’ve noticed it too…I just assumed it was the leg issues he’s had.

      Mayberry plays a very good CF…which makes keeping him around as a 5th OF a good idea. He can handle all 3 OF positions quite well, he has good speed and can hit LHP. That’s the ideal 5th OF right there.

      1. I think they’d prefer Rollins not bust it down the line on a routine groundball to second base for fear of him aggravating a hamstring/calf issue. That said, if they are worried about that, it surely speaks to their worry about giving him a long term deal after this year.

        But that’s a topic for another day, on another site.

          1. Not that I disagree but I really dislike the alternatives: Valdez, Martinez, and Galvis, oh my!

            1. Not for next year, but eventually, I am starting to get sold on Galvis. If, that is, he can keep improving. If he improves as much next year as he has this year (so far, anyway) – a tall order for sure – he’s going to be a top prospect.

  11. Agree that there is way too much emphasis put on players who don’t draw a large number of walks. There are a number of very good major leaguers who didn’t walk much because they were aggressive hitters and didn’t take strikes.

    The question is what type of pitches are they swinging at? Being aggressive in the strikezone is not a bad thing. Swinging at bad pitches is.

    This is one of those situations where just looking at the numbers (which is the only thing most of us have to go on) doesn’t necessarily tell the story.

    1. See my point below.

      Walk rate in isolation is only so useful. Walk rate when coupled with K rate (assuming both are calculated using plate appearances and not ABs) is much more useful.

  12. A lot of good major league players have holes in their games. Placido Polanco doesn’t have power. Jimmy Rollins doesn’t draw walks. Ryan Howard strikes out a lot. Carlos Pena doesn’t hit for a high average. Jayson Werth can’t hit with RISP. Victorino doesn’t have much power. So maybe it’s alright if Valle is a free swinger. However, as a guy in high A, this number may indicate that he will have trouble in more difficult leagues. Chasing a bad pitch in high A might not prevent you from getting another good pitch to hit in the at-bat. But in AA, AAA or the major leagues, chasing a bad pitch could put you behind in the count where an advanced pitcher has a lot of ways to put you away. But Ryan Howard swings at a ton of bad pitches.

  13. I really need to learn how to spell. Valle as he moves up might learn that he must not chase bad pitches, and take a walk if the pitchers is giving you one, he is young ,but is showing so much promise, but if in two years he is ready what will happen to chooch, a fan favorite. love chooch.

  14. Looking more at my research above. The break even point of walks is about 4-5% of a player’s plate appearances. That is where a player who is truly skilled at hitting (i.e. Robinson Cano) can remain a productive hitter. Below 4% production in the majors is virtually unsustainable.

    From 6-10% you see large benefits from drawing more walks. Tony Gwynn and Roberto Clemente reside in this area. These are the guys 3up describes. Guys who were great hitters who drew the bare minimum of walks. Here I looked at hitters with 1000 PAs and looked at .300 hitters (since 1961). For every 1% added to the walk rate, another 8-10 hitters joined the list. At 10% walk rate you have 39 .300 hitters in the last 50 years.

    After 10% it levels off. Not that drawing more walks is not valuable, but it ceases to become something that improves your overall hitting ability.

    1. I think the big thing to consider when looking at walk rate is contact rate, or strikeout rate, which I actually touched on in my new statistical toy.

      A player with a low walk rate, but insane contact skills (Polanco, for instance) can get by with a really low walk rate because he makes a ton of contact. With a league average BABIP, he can still hit .290-.300 every year, and if you throw in a few walks, a .320 OB% isn’t going to kill you. But players with high strikeout rates who don’t walk generally don’t last very long. If you swing and miss a lot, you’re prone to big fluctuations in BABIP, and that could mean a .220 batting average one year and a .290 batting average the next year. Luck has a lot to do with that spread, and most teams lose patience.

      If Valle had, say, a 5% BB rate and a 10% K rate, I’d be totally fine with his walk rate being where it is. Most guys with really good contact skills swing a lot because they think they can hit everything. And they normally do. As they face better pitching, their either learn to stop swinging at bad pitches (walk rate goes up a bit) or they start striking out more, because better pitchers can exploit a weakness.

      Valle’s K% is over 20% this year, which is too high given his walk rate. That said, he’s still young and has plenty of time to make adjustments. Very few catchers make it to the big leagues, stay at catcher, and produce above average offensive numbers before the age of 25. Hell, look at Wieters. He was anointed the second coming and is only now starting to put things together. And Valle isn’t in the same prospect class as Wieters was 3 years ago, when he was considered one of the 3 best prospects in baseball.

      He has time, and he has a lot of adjustments to make. The raw power is special, the bat speed is there, the rest of his game needs work.

      1. Agree that combining it with K/rate is more useful as a gauge. I just see way too many posters using individual stats (BABIP is another frequently abused metric) to make arguments for/against players.

        Like everything else, statistical measures need to used in their proper context or they are meaningless.

      2. Certainly K/BB ratio is important. When I look at BB/PA rates, its a framework that leads to where those other stats fit in. When a player succeeds with a low BB rate, I would likely assume a low K rate as well. I think it simply shows the bare minimum BB rate you can suffer.

      3. I wonder if guys like Valle or Santana, who are seeing a significant drop in BB along with (paradoxically) better offensive stats are being told to be more aggressive in making contact. Both of their batting averages were fairly low last year.

        In any case, it’s been less than 40 games for both of them, so I’m not too worried.

  15. where do I find the pitching matchups for the blueclaws. I have tickets to thursday and friday’s games in greensboro?

  16. Lots of good stuff on BB rates. I’d add that there are two components:

    (1) BB are valuable in their own right – as some casual fans don’t sufficiently recognize – though overall in the past 30 years this has become much more generally regognized.

    (2) BB rates (especially in conjunction with K rates, as PP correctly notes) are also a good indicator of future hitting success for prospects & young major leaguers. Someone who will swing at anything and doesn’t make contact will never get a decent pitch to hit – and that will (a) with rare exceptions be a career killer for players with signficantly below average BB and K rates and (b) will ALWAYS be a career killer for players with extremely bad BB/K ratios. This is more of a problem as a player advances – at the lower levels, even a free swinger can feast on mistakes, but as a player advances that is not a recipe for success.

    Now, the good news for prospects is that players CAN (and often do) learn plate discipline over time.

    What does this mean for Valle? No, he can’t succeed unless he signficantly improves his BB rate (though it doesn’t need to be above average or even average, just a lot closer to average than it is now). But he has a shot at doing that. And basically everything else is a positive – good power, age/level, decent and improving LD rates, decent contact rates (if not quite good enough to make up for the horrible BB rate) – and he is a catcher. He’s a good prospect, despite the absurd BB rate. Heck, if he had a BB rate of 10%, he would probably be one of the top 50 prospects in the minors.

    1. What is the point where a poor BB/K ratio becomes unsustainable? Around 33%. You can find a few guys who have careers with worse ratios, but not many and they tend to be guys with a lot of defensive/positional value, not very good hitters. In recent years the only really good hitter I found with a BB/K ratio less than 1/3 was Alphonso Soriano.

      Judging Valle by that standard, he isn’t looking good this year: 7% (yikes). But I don’t but THAT much weight on it; he has been better in the past (still not great, but much better), sample size only 131 PA this year, and he has plenty of time to develop that part of his game.

    2. It occurs to me that some of my talk about rates and ratios can be confusing. A 10% BB rate (BB/PA) is above average. A 10% BB/K ratio is horrible.

  17. Brian Gordon is now in special territory. IMO – he has earned a big league start. What a story he has become. Wow!

    1. He has started 8 games and pitched out of the pen in two and has only given up 4 runs which is amazing considering he has throw 42+ innings. I think he definitely deserves to get called up.

  18. It looks like the phillies have signed Terry Evans. I think he used to play for the Angels.

    1. Yeah saw he was assigned to Reading…should give them some more power with Overbeck and Rizzotti.

  19. I’ll have the stats locked and ready to go for the new night of boxscore discussion.

    Question: is this method of listing just the players that played on any given night the best way to go moving forward (doesn’t change much for me in terms of work)?
