  1. Who woke Clearwater up Green , Kingery, Sandberg, etc all doing well. Hoskins not slowing down ,We need the Williamsport pitching staff up here lol. FLYERS took a Russian Center for there 1 # pick.

    1. Ramos with his debut, I hope he sticks in bigs. If Hinojosa is activated who gets sent down? Araujo?
      Leiter and Leftwich both promoted, may not be top prospects but both do look good enough to eventually make it to the show.

      1. was wondering the same thing on the bullpen myself- arajuo is your only situation lefty though… plus Stumpf close enough to suspension end to be rehabbing and Holland rehabbing too.

  2. LHV is 18 – 7 in the month of June. That’s hot-hot-hot. Reading is hotter. They are 18 – 4 in June. CLW is a rather cool, relatively speaking, 11 – 8 in June. The top 3 Philly minor league teams have a .712 win percentage in June. LKW is 10 – 10 in June, in case you cared.

    Zach Green is screaming for a call up but he does have a chink in that armor. He has 8 walks total in CLW. Yes, he has 14 dbls and 10 HRs to go with his .286/.342/.486/.828 but he should be a little more patient at the plate. Green DH’s a lot in CLW. He plays 1B pretty well but he has a gigantic hurdle to fly over in the person of Rhys Hoskins. Rhys is standing on 1B and you’re not moving him anywhere but up. Green was a pretty good 3B earlier in his career and Walding won’t give that up in CLW. Harold Martinez plays a lot of 3B in Reading and could be a backup but Green’s played 3B only 6 games since 2014. Stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    Osmal Aquila, the Cuban OF’er the Phils signed earlier this year, has awful splits. He’s hitting .333/.467/.417/.883 against lefties and a Ryan Howard-esqe .083/.207/.167/.374 against righties. Of course the bulk of his ABs are against righties. Rusty.. I guess.

    1. Hollands can’t pitch. Pick someone else. He slings the ball and it has no movement. Might be because of his injury, but I wasn’t impressed with him at any stop in the minors before he hurt himself.

  3. Weird line, Reading scored 11 runs, 14 hits and struck-out 13 times…almost half their outs were strike outs.

    1. Romus. I watched some of the game last night. I don’t ever remember a announcer saying a pitcher. is better pitching to contact. But elfin is better when he does. Herrera is playing a terrible center field. Third thing need you or jim. What Is the story on green? in system since 2012 4 years to get to high a ball. I really don’t know about him at all. Is he a real prospect or not?

      1. Eflin always said he prefers to throw the 2Smr sinker…..that is why his whiff ratio was lower in the minors….but he says he can go further in the games when he does that. But if he wants he can dial it upon the 4Smr at 95. And since he is 6’6″, and throwing with more of a downward plane, his sinker will have more more movement generating more off the barrel contact.
        Zach Green could never stay healthy long enough in one season to really fully develop….’13. ’14 and ’15 (three seasons) only played 184 games total Him and Roman Quinn have had to overcome long lapses in their development.

        1. Green wasn’t hurt in ’13 which was short season and he has an impressive year for a 19 year old. I believe he was only on DL briefly during -A and then all of last season. I hope he can stay healthy.

          1. Correct…my bad…..so it was only two years…’14 and ’15.
            Still for him it was just too many games hampering his development.
            But if he finds a position and stays healthy he should be a keeper for a few more years to see what his bat can do over a full season…maybe LF will be his calling card…..though he is slow afoot.

            1. Fanti today 3.2 innings 8 strikeouts. The kid doesn’t throw hard but keeps striking out guys.20 stikeouts in 17.2 innings.

            2. Right now, not too many starting LHPs in the system that look to have big upsides….he is one, but so far down the line, and also someone like Elniery Garcia.

            3. rocco….also saw LHP Jhon Nunez pitching today…..a Panama kid who signed for about $100K. He may turn out.
              Phillies have done well in Panama. maybe rHP Edisson Gonzalez could be another signing in a few weeks.

      2. Certain players like Green and Stassi mustn’t be viewed ultimately by the organization as major league talent, regardless of their numbers.

        1. If I am understanding you right you are saying no matter how good Zach Green does he shouldn’t be viewed as a major league talent??? He isn’t old for the league and may be a couple of weeks away from a promotion to AA if he keeps up his current progress. He is only 22 hitting .286/.342/.486

          1. Philly,

            Agree. If last year wasn’t a wash out maybe Green would be at AA this year and we’d be talking about what a great prospect he is. Similar to Valentin. Out much of the year and forgotten, then he surprises us perhaps only because we forgot, not because he had diminished.

            1. And what makes you say that the organization doesn’t view Green as a major league talent? I can see that with Stassi, while a nice story, I don’t think he is anything more than a bench bat at best

            2. My point isn’t whether Green is major league talent or not BUT that when a player isn’t moving along after several years in the system, it’s possible that personnel people getting paid to evaluate within the organization are not seeing it. I thought it was a rather innocuous point actually. Sorry to rattle some feathers.

        1. adjective: innocuous

          not harmful or offensive.
          “it was an innocuous question”

          synonyms: harmless, safe, nontoxic, innocent;

            1. No but I received that derogatory comment about my spelling . Now if you are implementing that ” hooked on Phonics ” will help me spell correctly your wrong . The program itself came out in the 90 ‘s as A” Reading Tool “. Now ” Phillies Phonics ” could be new a program helping out everyday fans understand baseball.

  4. The Phils could field two teams in the GCL. The team currently has 28 players on it’s roster plus 2 rehabs. The top guys from the most recent draft haven’t been added yet. Moniak, Gowdy, Stobbe, Stevens and Miller will need to be added. Maybe Romero and a few other signees plus some still to come. What’s the limit of players allowed on the roster? If it’s 35, then it’s probably okay but if it’s 30, someone will have to go to XST or to the DSL.

      1. Yes, Sixto Lescano played in 127 games over two years. Played pretty well in 1984 hitting .277/.371/.480 with an .851 OPS.

      2. rocco…I like the name ‘Seven’……after Mickey Mantle’s jersey….even George liked it.

        1. When resorts first opened. Mickey was a host. he played golf with high rollers. My friend. god rest his sole knew how I love mickey. So he took me to a restaurant that the mick was going to eat at that night. He had play a round of golf with him. Only player I ask for his autograph, I have seen so many over the years from living near the stadium. But only ask dutch. for a girl in the restaurant who loved him.

  5. What happened to Greg Pickett? The 60 day disabled list is not a good sign, yet another lost year of development. Did he tear up a knee?

    1. Oh no… not that again. But seriously, if you haven’t been to Gettysburg or haven’t been there recently, GOooooooo. Take the wife (spouse), take the kids, take the grandparents. Just go. Read a book on the battle before you go and you can visualize the whole thing.

    1. Think about it….excluding Ryan Howard’s remaining salary of $22M (12.5M this year + 10 buyout in 2017) from this years Phillies team…..there may be more committed money on the GCL team than the Phillies ballclub.
      Moniak, Gowdy, Stolle, and Ortiz make up close to $15M. Brito was a $500K signing I think.

      1. Romus, what will they possibly do with all that economic muscle over the next few years? What free agents will be worth that kinda coin?

        1. Actually the money to the kids are in the form of a bonus check…..not so much a strict yearly salary or long term contract so to speak. They will be under team control …both as a player and monetarily…. for a number of years after they debut into the MLB and will not cost the team all that much for awhile.

  6. From Lehigh to Lakewood, everything is going well tonight. Pinto and especially Taveras with good outings so far. Knapp with 3 hits. JP’s avg continues to creep up. That Andrew Pullin is suddenly getting my attention.
