Certainly an area where the Phillies will be looking to add talent and depth in the upcoming draft. Nothing to be over whelmed about but Lino and Knapp have been solid this year, with Gruillon learning and progressing.
John Hester, 32, Signed as a free agent in 2015; .269/.296/.385 in 26 AB’s between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 0HR 0RBI. 10 games caught with any errors or passed balls; Has thrown out 2/10 (20%) of base stealers; STarted the season on the DL after knee surgery and has played very sparingly since.
Logan Moore, 24, Phils 9th round pick in 2011; .187/.282/.240 in 75AB’s between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 0HR 8RBI; 12%BB/22%K rates; Hitting .194 in 36 AB’s with Lehigh Valley; 24 games caught with 4 errors (.975); 4 passed balls; Has thrown out 14/23 (61%) base stealers. No bat, excellent arm.
Tommy Joseph, 23, Acquired from San Francisco in 2012; .123/.135/.178 in 73 AB’s before being placed on the DL with a concussion. Hasnt played in three weeks and no timeline for his return.
Blake Forsythe, 25, Acquired from Oakland in 2015; Hitting .250 in 12 AB’s between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 4 games caught without an error; 1 passed ball; Has thrown out 2/3 base stealers; Depth guy.
Gabriel Lino, 22, Acquired from Baltimore in 2012; .255/.325/.331 in 102AB’s for Reading; 3HR 12RBI; 8%BB/23%K rates; .261 vs. LH, .253 vs. RH, .240 with RISP; .245 in May; 30 games caught with 2 errors (.991); 2 passed balls; Has thrown out 15/30 base stealers (50%); Lino has played well this year. Looking for perhaps a bit more with the stick but very solid behind the plate.
Rene Garcia, 25, Signed as a free agent in 2015; .222/.246/.238 in 63 AB’s between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 0HR 3RBI; 3%BB/8%K rates; Has caught 18 games with 1 error(.990); 0 passed balls; Has thrown out 5/19 base stealers (26%). Very good receiver without much else. A good guy to help the Reading pitching staff.
Andy Knapp, 23, Phils 3rd round pick in 2013; .277/.342/.379 in 177AB’s; 1HR 23RBI; 8%BB/23%K rates; .203 vs. LHP; .319 vs RHP; .238 with RISP; .289 in May; 33 games caught with 4 errors (.985); 3 passed balls; Has thrown out 13/29 base stealers (45%). Knapp is coming into his own this year and playing like a 3rd round pick. Needs work against lefty pitching but the hope would be to see him in Reading for the last month of the season.
Chace Numata, 22, Phils 14th round pick in 2010; .239/.300/.283 in 46AB’s between Lakewood and CLearwater; 0HR 4RBI; 8%BB/4%K rates. 7 games caught with 1 error (.981); 2 passed balls; Has thrown out 4/15 base stealers (27%). Numata is still getting his feet wet after missing much of the last two seasons injured.
Joel Fisher, 22, Phils 23rd round pick in 2014; .239/.286/.348 in 46 AB’s; 0HR 3RBI; 0%BB/28%K rates; 14 games caught without an error; 1 passed ball; Has thrown out 5/9 base stealers (56%). Has played very well defensively when he has played.
Deivi Gruillon, 19, Signed as a free agent in 2012; .243/.277/.338 in 148AB’s; 2HR 18RBI; 4%BB/23%K rates; .220 vs. LHP; .255 vs. RHP; .234 with RISP; .202 in May; 35 games caught with 3 errors (.989); 6 passed balls; Has thrown out 11/43 (26%) base stealers. A bit more was expected of Gruillon through the early going but far from a disappointment at 19 and in Lakewood.
Jose Mayorga, 22, Signed as a free agent in 2009; Hitting .097 in 31AB’s between Clearwater and Lakewood. 11 games caught without an error; 0 passed balls; Has thrown out 5/13 (38%) of base stealers
