Plenty to talk about in the OF across the system.
Aaron Altherr, 24, Phils 9th round pick in 2009; .296/.364/.483 in 375 AB’s between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 12HR 58RBI; 15SB; 9%BB/19%K rates; For LV: .301/.354/.486 in 146AB’s; 6HR 29RBI; 7SB; 7%BB/25%K rates; .417 vs LHP; .264 vs RHP; .282 in July. 94 games in the OF without an error; 7 OF assists; Altherr has had an excellent year and has become one of the most talked about prospects with a healthy debate on when he should be called up. The transition to Lehigh Valley has been a smooth one with perhaps a higher K rate that should normalize with time. Fielding continues to be excellent.
Brian Bogusevic, 31, Signed as a free agent in 2015; .285/.346/.389 in 347AB’s: 6HR 38RBI; 19SB; 8%BB/19%K rates; .248 vs LHP; .302 vs RHP; .286 with RISP; .186 in July. 80 games in the OF with 1 error (.994); 4 OF assists; Bogusevic has had a very good year overall but has cooled considerably recently.

Tyler Henson, 27, Re-signed as a free agent in 2015; .268/.304/.363 in 325AB’s; 1HR 45RBI; 22SB; 5%BB/21%K rates; .265 vs LHP; .269 vs RHP; .286 last 30 days; .333 with RISP; 38 games in the OF without an error; 1 OF assist; 36 games at 2B with 11 errors (.944). Henson is an extremely valuable player because of his versatility and the fact he is one of the best clutch hitters in the minor leagues.
Destin Hood, 25, Signed as a free agent in 2015; .317/.328/.492 in 63 AB’s with Reading; 2HR 11RBI; 15%BB/20%K rates; 15 games in the OF without an error; 2 OF assists; Hood was signed in July after being released by Washington. He was initially a 2nd round pick back in 2008 and has some talent, which he has shown in the early going with Reading. He hit .294 in almost of full year of AAA last year (Syracuse) and is a nice depth guy to have here.
Cameron Perkins, 24, Phils 6th round pick in 2012; .261/.315/.446 in 307AB’s: 11HR 45RBI; 5SB; 6%BB/13%K rates; .271 vs LHP; .241 vs RHP; .207 with RISP; .289 since June 1. 74 games in the OF with 2 errors (.987); 13 OF assists; After missing some time injured early in the season, Perkins has come on to have a very solid season, temporarily putting to rest the criticism that he cant hit for power.
Brian Pointer, 23, Phils 26th round pick in 2010; .232/.352/.404 in 228AB’s: 9HR 27RBI; 6SB; 15%BB/27%K rate; .133 vs LHP; .247 vs RHP; .169 in July; .228 with RISP. 62 games in the OF with 2 errors (.982); 8 OF assists; Pointer is a feast or famine guy. Still can’t hit lefties but when there is a RHP on the mound and his swing is in sync, look out. Outstanding walk rate.
DL: Roman Quinn, 22, Phils 2nd round pick in 2011; Has been out since Mid June with a significant leg injury. Expected back Mid August.
Nick Williams, 21, Acquired from Texas in 2015. Expected to join team this week. Hitting .299/.357/.479 in 378 AA AB’s this year; 13HR 45RBI; 10SB.

After missing about three weeks injured, he has returned to the lineup very hot.
Andrew Pullin, 21, Phils 5th round pick in 2012; .260/.301/.401 in 392AB’s; 11HR 62RBI; 1SB; 5%BB/15%K rates; .264 vs LHP; .258 vs RHP; .215 in July; .262 with RISP. 75 games in the OF with 1 error (.993); 8 OF assists; Pullin has put up run producing numbers consistently all year. Would like to see his average 10-15 points higher but very hard to complain about his year.
Carlos Tocci, 19, SIgned as a free agent in 2011; .313/.372/.396 in 396AB’s between lakewood and Clearwater; 3HR 35RBI; 17SB; 7%BB/15%K rates.

An excellent year that has allowed him to re-establish himself high on the prospect charts.
Chase Harris, 24, Phils 14th round pick of 2014; .254/.302/.295 in 268AB’s between Lakewood and Clearwater; 0HR 20RBI; 19SB; 6%BB/18%K rates; 72 games in the OF with 1 error (.993); 6 OF assists; Harris should be in High A, but there is no room with the guys that need AB’s every day. That said, he is a long shot prospect.
Herlis Rodriguez, 21, SIgned as a free agent in 2010; .293/.332/.438 in 304AB’s; 8HR 47RBI; 12SB; 5%BB/16%K rate; .319 vs LHP; .282 vs RHP; .260 last 30 days; .338 with RISP. 65 games in the OF with 3 errors (.979); 15 OF assists. Rodriguez is another guy that has put himself on the internal prospect map this year with consistently solid performance. His 15 OF assists lead the organization.
Cord Sandberg, 20, Phils 3rd round pick in 2013; .254/.299/.328 in 366AB’s; 2HR 38RBI; 5SB; 5%BB/17%K rates; .208 vs LHP; .273 vs RHP; .295 last 30 days. 89 games in the OF with 2 errors (.989); 10 OF assists; Sandberg has been coming on strong after a very slow start.

Zachary Copploa, 21, Phils 13th round pick in 2015; .305/.397/.331 in 118AB’s; 0HR 10RBI; 18SB; 13%BB/13%K rates; .250 vs LHP; .329 vs RHP; .280 last 30 days. 26 games in the OF with 1 error (.986); 3 OF assists; Coppola makes things happen at the top of the lineup and seems to have the skill set to compensate for his lack of power. He is a guy I am interested to watch progress.
