Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.

Extra Innings –

  • Very little to report from XST.  They moved the 1:00pm game up.  When I arrived at 12:40pm it was in the bottom of the seventh.
  • Dugan had played CF for 7 innings.
  • Seranthony Dominguez pitched the final 2 innings.  His breaking ball had good movement.  I heard the coaches remark that he was spotting it well.
  • Devin Lohman played 9 innings at first base.  Hmmmm.  He turned a nice 3-6-3 double play.
  • I saw Pujols bat once.  He hit a soft, first-pitch fly ball to center with runners on second and third and two out.
  • Jesus Posso crushed a game-tying, solo home run to left.
  • Philadelphia Phillies recalled Cody Asche from Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
  • Philadelphia Phillies designated RF Grady Sizemore for assignment.

  1. Thanks Jim for your usual excellent reports. Excited that Crawford gets the call to AA. I read a report about JP where an unnamed scout questions his range at SS and thinks he’ll move to another position. Question for you. What do you think about his range? Are we looking at an ARod situation where he moves to 3B? The organization seems to have some young talent at SS.

  2. Jim……thanks for this very good detailed report.
    Morgan is struggling it appears.
    Any word around the complex about Valentin’s situation?

  3. Brandon Leibrandt was strong for five innings before apparently running out of gas. No big concern as he’s been very consistent.

  4. Glad to see JPC get the promo to Reading, starts tonight.
    Maybe Hoskins is next in line to CLW.

  5. Let me get this right … I can see Crawford, Nola and Quinn on the same field tonight? Looks like I’m off to Reading …

    1. Got tickets yesterday before the news, this is sweet, right on first row, on the field in front of first base…sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best $11 ticket in Phillies land..

      1. Yeah, I’ll be there too. On the R-Phils dugout.

        I still call them the R-Phils..

  6. Brian Pointer quietly turning his season around with an excellent May, batting .271 with a OBP of .386 and SLG of .458 (OPS .844) for the month.

    Quinn continues to strike out at a much lower rate, but his BB rate has fallen off the side of a cliff. He’s now walked just twice in the last 16 games and has OPS’d .643 for the month. Hard to believe when looking at his overall numbers. His incredible April numbers are camouflaging what has been a sub-par May.

    I didn’t celebrate Altherr’s breakout season last week, so I’m overdue for a comment. Altherr followed up an April K rate of 17% with a rate of 14% for the month of May. He now stands at 14.8% on the season coupled with a 10% BB rate. That K rate is a dramatic reduction over past seasons. I’m hoping he can continue this trend through June before I start getting truly excited.

    1. The reduced K rate and increased BB rate are nice but should be expected from a 24 year old repeating AAA.

      I personally don’t see much to be excited about. Even with all that he is still just OPSing .805 which is nice, but again, for a 24 year old repeating AA, doesn’t excite me

      Still has a ceiling of a 4th OF if u ask me. Which is fine, teams need cheap young 4th OF’s….

  7. I have to buy my R-Phils tickets when they play in Trenton this year as Reading is much further.

  8. Suggestion: for future reference, hold in mind a 6’1″, 187, righty right fielder, now 19, in our Venez team: Enger Jiminez. A long way away, but tuck him away in our back pockets. Just a speculative thought……….kind of (SSS) breaking forth now. Worth following….I like all of those numbers….
