  1. I was at the Lakewood game, Kilome was impressive, FB 90-94 from what I saw. He got into trouble at one point with 2 outs, a few balls were hit hard as there was a decent wind blowing.

    Tromp hit one over the LF fence. Grullon looks a bit heavier then I remember seeing him in person last year. Hernandez looked good at the plate.

    Was really hoping to see Edgar Garcia pitch as he seems to be having an impressive year. Haven’t heard too much about him but perhaps I’ll catch him on Milbtv later this season.

    On a side note I wonder how much longer before Alexis Rivero moves up to Reading.

    1. Grullon’s worries me. I said last year around this time that he looked huge when I saw him and now Daniel says he’s even bigger.

  2. Kilome great outing finally , Brown finding his power , Cozens another assist and Sb. Kingery 13 th stolen base , Watson with another solid start.

    1. Kilome has a 2.31 ERA over his last 7 starts. In 6 of those starts, he gave up 2 or fewer runs. In the other game he gave up 3 runs. He has 37 Ks and 15 BBs over 40 IP in that stretch. He’s still 20 — for 15 more days. His first 3 starts were horrible but since the air has warmed up, he’s been much better. I’d like to see a little more swing and miss potential but he is maturing nicely. If I were doing my top 30 right now, he might have slipped a few slots but that’s more about the guys moving up than him moving down.

      1. He had them swinging and missing last night, I should have written down how many of his 9 K’s were from swing and miss. There was a cool breeze and the temp really started dropping as the game went on, so it will be interesting to see how he does when it gets really hot out. He walked past me after his start and while he’s got that tall frame, he’s still skinny and will need to fill out more.

  3. I really hope that Quinn is okay. I don’t know how much more time he can miss before it really effects his development. Who does everyone think will get promoted up a level?

    1. There was a comment in a story by one of the beat writers I think last week that indicated the Phils said its very possible Quinn gets time in Philly this September. I found that surprising, but encouraging.

      This missed time now I’m guessing (and hoping) is the Phils being VERY careful about him due to his injury history.

    2. It has already affected his development. If he had played full time (or nearly full time) since being drafted, I think he’d be in the majors already. That he has progressed acceptably according to age is a testament to his talent.

    3. Via promoted to Reading, starting tonight’s game. Hope he can continue his success from Clearwater. I also think there may be an outside chance Pivetta gets promoted to LHV to fill the 5th starter spot.

      1. He sure did continue his success. Maybe he should have spot-started for the big club tonight. 🙂 Actually Thompson was masterful and should now be in the mix for a promotion.

  4. Kilome’s slowish start will probably cost him his spot in the top 10 prospect list, but he is definitely a top 30 prospect. Leftwitch, Arauz and Gilbert have been more constant and deserve some consideration, although Kilome and Arauz are the youunger SP in their season 21. I would like to see Kilome missing more bats and Arauz further developing his change up. Kilome seems lights up the radar gun with ease, and Arauz seems to be more of a finnesse pitcher with a ton on movement in all his pitches. Up in the farm, happy to see Shane getting his first W with Clearwater and Elfin fighting for a callup. Anybody know what’s the status of Velasquez???

    1. ‘Kilome’s slowish start will probably cost him his spot in the top 10 prospect list’….it was April and cold….he never pitched in cold weather before in his life.
      Lets give him at least that benefit of the doubt….happens to most all LA young pitchers on miost all MiLB teams when they hit the cold April in full ball for the first time up in the North.
      Let’s see how he does thru August in the heat.
      IMO….he will probably stay in the top 10 if his body of work remains at this current level thru the remainder of the season

    2. Kilome’s last seven starts since April has averaged score of 57….and one was below base50 at 48. So he is not right now lights-out dead-red prospect but holding his own as a 20-year old in low A.
      He however could still remain in the 90s with BA or drop to the 105-110 range depending on how many of this drafts players crack it.

  5. Jan Hernandez with his 5th multi hit game in last 11 games, really coming on

    Kingery becoming the player everyone thought he would be when drafted.

  6. Good to see a nice bounce-back outing from Watson. But they pulled him after throwing just 73 pitches, after 6 and one third innings…Similar to Eflin’s last start.

  7. A very good night for Tommy Joseph and the kids at Lehigh and Reading. Thompson and Viza both STRONG outings. Ramos keeps shuttin’em down. Cozens, Hoskins, Alfaro and Aaron Brown (who’s slowly making progress) all go yard!!!!
