  1. Nice to see Randolph with a couple of doubles in Lakewood. He had to be really pressing after being out for so long with the injury.

  2. ‘Jose Pujols was moved down to sixth in the line up’…if this continues at this pace for Pujols thru this season, I am wondering if he will repeat, like Tocci did a few years ago, or will the Phillies promote to CLW for 2017?
    His age is still in his favor to do a repeat, but after 5 years still in low A is concerning.

    1. Romus- this is a great point. His K rate is still a concern (actually quite staggering). Can see him starting next year back in Lakewood at this rate.

      1. Rick…I am sure every org has a prospect or two like Jose Pujols in their stable of prospects. He has three plus tools…power, arm and glove in RF. But instantaneous pitch recognition may be his biggest failing.

        1. All reports are he’s a good kid and a hard worker so that wont be the reason why he fails (if it comes to that). Hope that repetition and coaching leads to improvement of the hit tool, b/c like you said he’s not just a power bat. Kid plays good defense and has a plus arm.

      1. It will be interesting on how they handle him in 2017.
        They can promo him to CLW and if he struggles there he can repeat there in 2018.
        They can start him at LKW again in 2017, and if he rakes, promo him at mid-season to CLW.
        It is not the same but close to the Tocci plan..
        There are options……and he will not get selected in the Rule 5 draft in December.
        But like you say…he could have 25HRs and a bunch of RBIs and still repeat.

    1. Right here clown.

      Shouldve started at Williamsport or Lakewood, just like I said from the start. Why does one 0-6 game mean anymore than his other wise good start? Its more about where he should’ve started, not how he is doing now.

      Good job waiting for his one bad game to jump on it though

  3. Any update on AA home run derby in Akron last night? We were well represented with Alfaro, Cozens and Hoskins

      1. Thanks! Not a great showing by the Bash Brothers but Alfaro did well which is no surprise if you’ve seen him hit in BP. Oh well, back to the games and the game of predicting and monitoring promotions

        1. It is probably better that they did not win as the winners usually have poor second halves because of bad habits developed.

            1. Just look at Bobby Abreu, Todd Frazier and other winner stats after the All Star game. There is no guarantee of a bad second half but there is history and trends.

            2. yes, it means nothing. most players who participate in teh HR derby do so because they have high HR totals, almost always higher than their usual output. The second half is just a regression to the mean.

          1. 2015 Frazier 2nd Half Numbers .220/.274/.390/.664 w 10HR 32RBI ( 1st Half)

            2013 Cespedes 2nd Half Numbers .261/.296/.473/.769 11HR 37RBI (> 1st Half)

            2012 Fielder 2nd Half Numbers .331/.448/.558/1.006 15HR 45RBI (> 1st Half)

            2011 Cano 2nd Half Numbers .309/.358/.547/.905 13HR 51RBI (> 1st Half)

            2010 Ortiz 2nd Half Numbers .277/.355/.498/.854 14HR 45RBI (Close to =)

            2009 Fielder 2nd Half Numbers .283/.377/.590/.967 24HR 63RBI (Close to =)

            2008 Morneau 2nd Half Numbers .267/.350/.481/.831 9HR 61RBI ( 1st Half)

            2006 Howard 2nd Half Numbers .355/.509/.751/1.259 30HR 78RBI (> 1st Half)

            2005 Abreu 2nd Hald Numbers .260/.376/.411/.787 6HR 44RBI (< 1st Half)

            I hate the argument that people don't want their players in the HR Durby bc it messes up their swing. First off A LOT of players in BP are doing exactly this . . the real work goes on in the cages in their respective stadiums. Here are the winners dating back to the year Abreu won the HR Derby. As you can see this is a false narrative . . . over the past 11 HR Derby events only 3 players put up lower numbers in the second half and outside of Frazier every winners second half numbers would still be considered productive. More HR Derby winners have actually had BETTER 2nd halfs after they won the HR contest.

            btw look at Howards second half in 2006 … my GOD he was a monster!!!

        2. Dylan might tired after traveling back and forth to the West Coast and winning the HR Derby in San Diego. What all is 2-3 days?

  4. Any more talk on Tobias being moved up to Clearwater for the 2nd half of the season? Even if he played more games in LF, his bat is clearly ready for a new challenge. Seems too advanced to be hitting in Low A at this point.

  5. Nice item on MiLB.com. Reading is of course the best team in any league.

    Best Team

    Double-A Reading Fightin Phils (PHI), Eastern League

    As of this writing, there are eight teams in the Minor Leagues with a winning percentage above .700. Seven of them play in short-season leagues. The other is Reading, which has gone 63-27 through the first half of the Eastern League season. The Fightin Phils would lead Double-A Corpus Christi, which has the second-best winning percentage among full-season clubs at .648, by five games if they played on the same circuit. Reading’s biggest advantage is on offense — it leads the Eastern League with 538 runs (no other team has more than 414) and 120 homers (no others have more than 88), although its home park helps with some of that. The Fightins’ biggest contributors are Minor League home run leaders Rhys Hoskins (25) and Dylan Cozens (24) while Top-100 prospects J.P. Crawford, Jorge Alfaro and Roman Quinn have also played key roles in the first half. It’s the right mix of results and player development.

    124 runs more than the 2nd most in any league. Pretty impressive…

    1. I would tend to think that the brass will allow the Fightins to play out the regular schedule and playoffs before any promotions. We’ll still get to see JPC, Williams, and Thompson up here before September in all likelihood.

      1. I hope so. The last few games before their all star break were without Cozens and they were 2-2 I think

        1. i think that probably had more to do with it being the end of 20-straight days of playing rather than cozens absence

    2. I believe its 2nd most in the eastern league not any league. Think he means any other league just with the win percentage.

  6. Nice start for Kilome today. Only 2 walks. Still too many, however, it’s progress. 7 SO. Looks like they took him out on a high note and more than likely starting to limit his innings/pitches.
