Here’s the affiliate scoreboard from MiLB.

Extra Innings –

  • The Rosters are up to date here.
  • There have been requests for a list of Rule 5 eligible prospects.  I keep a file, but don’t worry about updating until after the regular season each year.  I copied the info I have and put it up on Google Sheets and provided the link here, Rule 5 Draft Tracker.  It looks like it might be pretty current, and includes players new to the organization who should figure into the org’s protection plans prior to the draft even though they were first eligible in 2015.  The important section of Rule 5 text is included under the prospect list.  I’m fairly certain that the signing dates are accurate and that my interpretation of the year of rule 5 eligibility is correct.

  1. Hernandez Jan seems to getting better with the bat .Willams is on fire great too see.the mlb 200 draft prospect will be out soon.

    1. Jan seems like a long time coming. He’s a 3rd round pick out of PR in 2013. I’ve been scratching my bald head as to why he wasn’t released long ago. Being a 3rd round choice makes it a little more obvious. He really has been horrible with the bat since he was drafted. .211/.258/.413 was the best he has mustered up until this year. He had 10 HRs last year in Wmsprt so he can hit the long ball but hitting your weight might be a decent tool to start with. He had 20 RBIs in 22 games in August last year but he still hit .200/.250/.463. These are Ryan Howardish numbers. This year, he’s hit .298/.359/.500 in the month of May. He’s been known to start off hot and then taper off. Lets’ see if he’s turned the corner and sees smooth sailing ahead or just another wall to smack into.

      1. Yeah, Bellman, I agree. I guess pick and bonus plays a part in decisions. I remember waiting for him to be released when they released Trey Williams. They had similar numbers and were both corner infielders. The only discernible difference was that Williams was an 11th round pick the same year.

        It is nice to see JH performing so far this season.

  2. Moore, getting more at-bats, is nearing the hit-tool he showed last year. Ruiz ‘ arm is showing signs of wear, so Moore would be the next catcher in line if Ruiz goes on the DL. Jan Hernandez is showing more game power. He is finally developing. Let’s see how he does over the season.

    1. Let’s not go crazy over a single game in a SSS. Moore was hitting 3-16 (.188) at Lehigh before his 4-4 yesterday. He’s still just a career .224 hitter who hit .224 in Reading this season in 67 AB.

  3. DSL starts up on Saturday. Another couple of games to look at and more work for Jim. Jim, your summaries have been tremendous and I’ve seen you write that it’s taking a lot out of you. I (we) understand that it will be mostly a link to the boxscores, which is fine. 2 more games to report on is just too much. Thanks for all you do for the site!!!!

    1. Somebody posted last week that Randolph should (could?) be back in lineup the first week of June.

    2. He’s working out here in Clearwater. I’ll try and get over to the Complex and get an update. I wonder if the Phillies would send him to Williamsport at the end of the month rather than Lakewood. Hmmm?

      1. He was starting to hit just fine in Lakewood, however, starting in Williamsport may allow him to get his timing back and with less pressure.

  4. In think Perkins, Milner, Walding, JDT and Rios are eligible for Rule V since 2015. Perkins and Milner, if they continue their good start, might be lost. I don’t see the Phils protecting Tocci and Canelo this year.

    IMO – Thompson, Appel, Williams, Knapp, Lively, Cozens, Pinto, Windle, Eflin, Pivetta will be added to the 40-man roster so we might see most of them in September. Green, Valentin and Arauz might force the issue.

    How about Arano? i thought he’s eligble too by the end of the season.

      1. jim – thanks for the clarification. that’s good! arano has the profile of RP that teams covet in Rule V.

        1. KuKo….Arano, if he stays at CLWw thru the year, will likely be by- passed in Rule 5 selection…teams rarely, if ever, pick any rile 5 eligible player who has not played at the AA level. Now if he gets promo next month and finishes well at Reading , then he very well could be selected.

          1. i think Arano will go up quickly if he plays out of the bullpen. that’s why I’m glad that he is not eligible yet this year.

  5. As we consider who gets called up, let’s look at the big league roster for who will be replaceable sooner than later, including trade candidates:

    Peter Bourjos
    Emmanuel Burriss
    Colton Murray
    Elvis Araujo
    David Lough
    Jeremy Hellickson
    Carlos Ruiz
    Jeanmar Gomez
    David Hernandez

    Less likely to be replaced soon but could be at some point:

    Ryan Howard
    Brett Oberholtzer
    Cesar Hernandez
    Adam Morgan

    That’s 13 roster spots that could change before September callups.

  6. Nobody will trade for Burriss , Elvis and Murray are good relief even if there depth. Everyone else is a minor trade option which is good. The rebuild after this draft will be in its last phase . It’s Wait for the younger guys phil in with FA AND 2018 PLAYOFF RUN . WE COULD BE THERE THIS YEAR BUT Howard and Hernandez , Bourjos , Burriss are in the way.
