Hot or Not

A look back over the last 10 days…..Roman Quinn is putting up some eye opening numbers on the basepaths…An awkening from the dead for Zach Collier….Dylan Cozens has emerged as a “must watch” and is as exciting a prospect as there is in the organization…What has happened to Cameron Rupp? He looks totally lost at the plate…Cord Sandberg stays on the Not Hot list….Aaron Nola continues throwing well for CLearwater, the transition to Reading should be interesting in the short term…Colin Kleven is quitely bouncing back over the last month, pitching very well…As one of the very few high schoolers the Phils decided to spend money on, Sam McWIlliams has gotten out of the gate very slowly.

  1. Not Hot GMs: Ruben Amaro

    Very intrigued by Cozens and looking forward to following him next season. Besides Franco we do not have many power hitting prospects in the system so it has been nice seeing him drive some balls over the wall. Quinn, Knapp, and Franco heating up and will hopefully continue playing well.

    Brad Lincoln is not a surprise being on the not hot list. His era is just under 5 and I have been completely unimpressed with him. I can’t believe we gave up Kratz and Rasmussen for him. Kratz isn’t having a great year but is a decent backup and has a strong arm. I guess since Rupp is a similar style catcher they felt they could let Kratz go. I understand the logic. Then we gave up Rasmussen who I believe we got for michael young when he went to LA. He is 25 and posting good numbers, I believe he is in the minors but has seen time with the blue jays . Here’s his numbers:

    I think he would be a nice addition to our pen right now and would have made it that much easier to get rid of bastardo. I do not see anything special about Lincoln who isn’t really young so there isn’t any reason to keep him IMO.

    Sorry if that bordered general discussion topic, but I tried to tie it in to hot or not.

    To end on a positive, Astudillo has been a very pleasant surprise to me this year. I did not know much about him, but have been keeping my eye on him and like what I see.

  2. Astudillo has been hitting since he joined the band. The question is whether there is spot on the field that he can fill competently. With his height and weight ( a little rolly polly) he is stuck at either catcher or first base.
    Of course, he’d be more valuable catching…if he has the arm and can dig balls out of the dirt. Then there is the requirement to be able to call a good game and to be a field general.
    Worth following, for sure.

    1. Atr D…shame Astudillo cannot be converted to a 2nd baseman. As a first baseman his height is a detractor versus a plus. He did play at third some a few years ago.
