Reading (38-19) Lost to Portland, 8-0.  John Richy was tagged for five runs in less than three innings.  That was more than enough as the Phils’ offense could muster only six singles.  Roman Quinn had the day off.

Clearwater (32-23) Lost to Jupiter, 4-0.  Both teams lost their starting pitcher’s due to a two-hour weather delay after the top of the first.  Tom Eshelman had struck out the side after two hits.  Jupiter’s starter didn’t even make it to the mound.  The bull pens took over and Jupiter’s was better.  Will Morris gave up a couple home runs and that was more than enough for the Hammerheads as the Threshers managed only four singles.

  1. Reading leads entire AA ball in HR & OPS. It also feels like they should be first in SO but they are I believe 5th or 6th.

  2. I really like the way you listed the prospects. I could see the prospect distribution between levels in an unusually clear way, and it isolated the information I really want.

  3. You putting the rank in the org next to prospects really opens my eyes to how top heavy the org is right now. We may want to draft and sign some younger players in he next month+. We will need to restock the cupboard if we don’t want what happened to the last great phillies team to happen to the next great run.

    1. A scout told Ben Badler of BA that 16 yr old Francisco Morales (who’s hit 96mph) from Venezuela is the top pitcher available among int’l class.

    2. I get your gist but if you asked me, do I like having most of our top prospects in the higher levels of the organization? I’d say yes, absolutely yes. In all the years I’ve followed this site and participated in the top 30 poll, it always seemed that we were bottom heavy. There was always guys playing well in Wmsprt or LKW and no one ready to join the Phillies. Most of those lower level guys flame out or worse yet, fade away.

      It is the time to stock the lower levels so we can continue the regular beaming up of prospects. The best case is our 31st choice in our top 30 has the same upside as out #10 on the list. Of course, you only have 40 spots on the roster to keep all the talent when they get close to succeeding.

      1. Yea, I completely agree. It’s a great thing that most of our top prospects are high in the org right now. Simply stating that it we don’t continue to feed the beast, those guys will get expensive down the line and we better have more guys ready to replace them so we don’t end up having the same thing happen again.

  4. I LOVE seeing Thompson bounce back with a great start plus Williams continues to grind. It’s a shame Asher got hurt, he’d probably have Morgan’s spot by now. Btw, Asher turned out to have a fractured shin so it’ll be awhile longer.

  5. Williams is on fire since JPC called up , .364 in that time.
    Quinn out of lineup yesterday and today, just rest??

  6. It looks like our old friend Phillipe Aumont is doing terribly and may be gone from Charlotte soon. The Iron Pigs announcer actually sounded sad about Aumont being lit up.

    1. He is just awful, worse than awful. Just another reminder of how tough evaluating prospects is. The Phils have such a tough decision on the #1 pick this year and seeing how hard it was to identify the fates of Gillies, Aumont, and Ramirez after each had played years in the minor leagues, you can see how it’s even harder to evaluate HS and college players.

    2. Aumont retired from baseball today. Feel bad for him; he never could figure out how to use his excellent stuff.

  7. Lakewood manager Shawn Williams yesterday on Coppola and Randolph’s returns.
    PhoulBallz…Jay Floyd.
    ‘The only thing I have is that Randolph has started doing some hitting stuff, some tee stuff and I don’t know what the time table is for him. I just know he’s hitting again, so I probably couldn’t even tell you. I know Zach is a lot closer than Cornelius. I think he’s almost into games here in the next couple days, probably just getting his legs going, I mean, possibly two weeks away, which would be obviously great for him and great for us.’

  8. Lively 6 shutout innings tonight. One or 2 more good starts and time to promote him. Maybe part of a 6 man rotation to preserve VV.
