GCL Phillies (15-7) Swept the GCL Braves, 10-1 in the completion of a suspended game and 5-4 in a ninth inning walk off.

Game One:  Nick Fanti tossed 5 no-hit innings, picking up where Sixto Sanchez left off on Monday.  Combined they accounted for 8 no-hit innings before Jose Nin gave up a lead off single in the ninth.

Fanti wind up 7-19

Fanti release 7-19

Fanti folow thru 7-19

Fanti allowed one base runner when he hit a batter on the foot with one of his breaking balls.  The only other batter reached on a passed ball on a strike out. The runner was doubled up on a soft liner to second baseman Daniel Brito.  Fanti struck out ten batters.

Here’s one of his strike outs.  Notice the placement of his pitches, and that the batter swings over them.

The game ended on a bizarre double play on an RBI single.  A single, pop out, and an error on a fielder’s choice put runners on first and second with one out.  The next batter lined a single to right.  The throw came into Jose Antequera at third who ignored the lead runner going home and ran the trailing runner back to second where he tug him out.  The batter had reached second and began retreating to first where he was tug out after a short rundown.

The Phillies collected 15 hits.  They posted a 6-spot in the top of the ninth.  Jose Antequera and Jhailyn Ortiz had 3 hits apiece.  Ortiz had 3 RBI.  Cole Stobbe and Malvin Matos had 2 hits each.  Nerluis Martinez had 3 RBI.  Ortiz crushed his 5th home run of the season to left center.  It appeared to one-hop into the half-field in front of Bright House Field.

  • #? Mickey Moniak (.300) went 1-5 with a double, HBP, and RBI (12).
  • #? Cole Stobbe (.319) went 2-4 with an RBI (2).
  • #25 Jhailyn Ortiz (.314) went 3-4 with a HR (5), BB, and 3 RBI (16).
  • #? Nick Fanti (2-0, 1.19) – 5.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 HBP, 10K.

Game Two:  Harold Arauz made his first rehab start.  He must have been on a pitch count rather than an innings count.  He pitched into the fifth inning and was lifted when his first pitch was blooped down the left field line for a double.  At that point Arauz had given up 5 hits and an unearned run.  He had walked none and struck out three.  His FB was 86-87, t88 mph.

Here is the first of three batters, a failed bunt attempt.

This second batter grounded out to first.

And, the final batter of the first inning grounded out to third.

These were quick at bats.  Arauz needed only 17 pitches to get through the first two innings, and he gave up a single and struck out two in the second.

Tom Windle came in and retired the side without allowing the runner to score, striking out two.  Jordan Kurokawa gave up a game-tying run in the top of the seventh.  In extra innings, Jonathan Nunez gave up single runs in the 8th and 9th.  But the Phillies kept coming back to avoid the loss.  The Braves committed 5 errors to aid the Phillies’ cause. They only managed 6 hits.  Malvin Matos had two.  Caleb Eldridge had their only RBI.

The Phillies faced the Braves’ top pick Ian Anderson.  They scored an unearned run off him.  They scored the tying and winning runs on  another bizarre play.  Trailing by a run, the Phillies put runners on first and second with one out.  Daniel Garner hit a ball toward the 5-6 hole that glanced off the third baseman’s glove into shallow left.  Cole Stobbe scored the tying run.  The left fielder threw wildly to third, and Rodolfo Duran scored when the pitcher neglected to back up the play.  Two errors. two unearned runs.

Here’s some video of batters.  Ortiz making contact, Ortiz on longer at bat where he was called out on strikes (I watched this frame by frame, and think the umpire may have blown the call, Pelletier getting an infield single (I think, he’s bigger than I remember), and Stobbe called out on strikes (I watched this one frame by frame, and I’m sure the umpire blew the call.  The catcher’s glove is over the chalk of the left-handed batter’s box when he catches the ball).

DSL Phillies (15-23) Lost to the DSL Dodgers2, 1-0.  The Phillies were out hit 3-2.  Oscar Marcelino (0-6, 3.93) gave up one run on 2 hits and struck out 6 in six innings.  Jonathan Guzman had both hits.

  • Jonathan Guzman (.289) went 2-4.
  • Keudy Bocio (.220) went 0-2 with a sac, BB, and SB (17).

40 thoughts on “Box Score Recap – 7/19/2016

  1. Encarnacion with the golden sombrero. He’s hitting (or should I say not hitting) .026 in his last 10 games. He has 1 hit in his last 10 games. He has 15 Ks over that stretch. Maybe an eye doctor appointment is in order or he has a Ryan Howard size hole in his swing.

    Rafael Marchan, one of last year’s bonus babies, is providing some very nice numbers in the DSL. He’s triple slashing .383/.441/.450 with an .891 OPS as a 17 y/o catcher. It’s all in 60 ABs and that’s the definition of short season stats but impressive none the less. He’s hitting .450 in his last 10 games. He has 2 errors behind the plate and no PBs. He also has a 61.5% CS rate. He’ll need a bigger challenge in a little while. The GCL is stacked with pretty good catchers and moving him to DSL1 won’t mean anything. He’ll need to bulk up but he has time for that.

    We haven’t talked much about Cam Perkins lately. In April and May, there was a lot of discussion about getting him on the big club. He faded in late May and throughout June. His average had fallen to his historical .280. He left our consciousness. But he’s back in July. He’s hitting .348 with a .927 OPS in July. He’s hitting .395 in his last 10 games with 3 of his 7 HRs coming in last 10 games. Williams looks like the first call up so Perkins’ window of opportunity might have slammed shut but the Phillies have expressed concern about Williams maturity. If they want to make a strong statement, maybe Williams won’t be the 1st call up.

  2. Nick Williams, Dylan Cozens, Aaron Altherr, Odubel Herrera, Cornelius Randolph, Mickey Moniak, Jhailyn Ortiz, Andrew Pullin, Cam Perkins.

    That’s a good list of currently productive or highly projectable outfielders. I was initially concerned that Ortiz was going to be a major project but his conditioning and early results have me dreaming of that big bomber I’d love to see at CBP.

    1. 8mark….may want to put Tyler Goeddel in the mix also….not sure where Cam Perkins will eventually end up….but probably in another org next season.

      1. I dunno, Romus. They’ve effectively put Goeddel in moth balls for this year. We have to wait until he gets seasoning in AA next year. Not impressed but I have to see him a full season playing every day.

        1. 8mark…..yuo are correct…..more minor league seasoning, he probably is destined for LHV next season, since last year he did his AA duties in the Rays org. Looks like a similar plan for MattK’s other Rule 5 project from last year….Taylor Featherston.

          1. I think they’re trying to showcase Asche and Bourjos for any potential suitors. I bet the last two months if the season will look a little different in out outfield.

    1. He will….he will probably ask the Phillies to release him after the season is over. there has to be a team out there that will give him a shot and afford him more of an opportunity to get to the majors. Too many young OFers blocking him here.

      1. I can’t see him getting released. I understand he’s “blocked” but outside of Williams right now, who exactly is a prime prospect above him? Goeddel maybe, and also Cozens but both have issues as well. I look at the Phillies having Williams, Herrera as guys on the big club next season but Goeddel, Altherr, Perkins, Cozens, as guys all about the same at this moment that shouldn’t really be “blocking” eachother and will be competing against eachother.

        Randolph, Tocci, Moniak, Quinn, are guys I think are farther away so no need to trade a guy who ‘could’ be up at the end of the year/beginning of next season.

        1. I think, next season, the Phillies will place more priority for the corners on first Altherr, then Williams, then Goeddel. and if Asche and Bourjos are still here, they could also be thrown into it.
          I just think he wants to move on……last week at the Bison/Pigs game announcers were talking about Perkins and mentioned indication he has reached the point , he is upgrading his ‘resume’ and auditioning and playing for 29 other teams

        2. If Perkins asks for his release, I can see the Phillies accommodating him. Perkins will be 26 at the end of the season, and he was available in the rule V draft and did not get selected. You have to figure that Goeddel and Cozens will get the majority of the playing time at Lehigh next year. Even Pullin might have hit himself into the mix. All these guys are younger than Perkins.

  3. Props to Walding. It was pretty much a put up or shut up year for him and hes stepped up. Hes not a huge prospect at this point, but hes at least done enough to be a guy to continue to keep an eye on.

    Ortiz being this good this quick is really really good news.

    1. Little confused. He will be 24 yrs old. In a ball. Has 15 errors, at third base, don’t see him as a prospect at this time.

      1. Hell be in Reading before the year ends. If he hits there, then we can start talking again.

        1. Hope your right. I want to thank romus. he mention Zach green and the kid went into the toilet. last 42 at bats is hitting 214. Thanks Romus

          1. rocco…no problem.
            Always liked Zach Green..big,and stron…..hard luck with injuries. He , along past prospect Kelly Dugan and now Roman Quinn, just cannot seem to ever stay healthy for a whole season…maybe this is his year.

        2. We can talk about Walding, but at age 24 at Clearwater/Reading, he still won’t be considered a prospect.

    1. Left hander which is good. They cant throw a ball straight if they tried. I know he is young with instruction and little more age. He might be up to 91 which for a lefthander with great movement , could make him valuable. This kid I read about when we drafted him. I don’t know the level of competition in New York. but I believe he had like 5 no hitters and was player of the year.

      1. He needs to get up to 90, even as a lefty, and then we have something with all that movement

        1. Plenty of time for the velocity to come, rather have him throwing strikes first if I had my druthers

    2. Thanks- had been trying to find for a while. Still excited, but not going to lie, was hoping for a “9”

  4. Ortiz has an ISO of .273 through 75 PA. No GCL Phillie has finished a season even sniffing that number with a significant number of PA going back through 2006, the first season Fangraphs has available for the league. This includes the measuring stick we all love to use for international teenagers in the GCL: Santana in 2009.

    Santana ’09 (age 16): 139 PA, .897 OPS, .220 ISO, 10.8/31.7 BB/K
    Ortiz ’16 (age 17): 75 PA, .934 OPS, .273 ISO, 5.3/22.7 BB/K

    He’s likely due for regression, but LOTS to like about Jhaylin Ortiz’s first pro season.

    1. You have to be excited by what Ortiz is doing. He’s a 17 yr old kid who didn’t even play last year. Fingers crossed on him but he looks for real.

      1. If Ortiz can keep his Krate below the 25% mark going forward, with his power tool, that will be a great situation for him. Guys into the 30s, while in the minors, really have trouble with the major league level pitching.

    2. For me, it’s that Ortiz is maintaining a decent K/rate to go with that power (although a better BB/Rate would help). Santana’s issue was and still is making contact..

    1. Sorry about that. I put a lot of time and effort into these things, a lot more when photos and video are involved. I can cut out all the extras and just concentrate on making sure I maintain 100% accuracy on just the box scores if you like, mr. deldondo.

      1. You go above and beyond, Jim! Please don’t change a thing on behalf of thoughtless commenters. Thanks for a great site!

      2. Really enjoy the added insights and images. Box scores can be found elsewhere but keeping the top30 in the forefront is such a benefit. Do not let a few negative posts impact the amazing g work you do. This site is awesome!

  5. I’m hope Buchanan continue to pitch hell. His days as a Phillie is probably over. Since he will most likely be DFAd after the season, the FO should try to trade him to teams with weak farms like LAA, MIA, OAK for some Low A lottery picks.

  6. Through the 1st 4 innings of the GCL game today, the starters gave up 9 hits, 8 runs, 7 ERs, 4 Ks, 7 BBs, 4 Hit batsmen and 2 WP. I don’t know what to say about it but I’d wear a suit of armor if I had to bat.

  7. Today, Junior goes yard with JP aboard. Hope to see a lot of that over the next few years. With exception of BBs and the help of FOUR DPs, Jake filthy again!
