Emmanuel Burriss, 31, Signed as a free agent in 2016; .294/.325/.361 in 119AB; 0HR 11RBI; 3SB; 5%BB/15%K; .273 vs LHP; .313 vs RHP; .304 in July; 24 games at 2B with 2 errors (.983); 5 games at SS without an error; 4 games at 3B without an error; 3 games in the OF without an error; I never would have thought but Burriss has really been a steadying force for Lehigh Valley, playing extremely well up the middle and has been more than competent with the bat.
JP Crawford, 21, Phils 1st round pick in 2013; .262/.360/.362 in 370AB between Reading and Lehigh Valley; 6HR 37RBI; 11/17SB; 13%BB/14%K; For Lehigh Valley: .261/.336/.346 in 234AB; 10%BB/15%K; .289 vs LHP; .243 vs RHP; 96 games at SS with 15 errors (.968); Continued progress for Crawford whose production is just a very small tick less in AAA than it was in AA this year. Expect him in Philly for good come September.
Darnell Sweeney, 25, Acquired from Dodgers in 2015; .238/.297/.370 in 311AB; 6HR 28RBI; 10/19SB; 8%BB/22%K; .246 vs LHP; .234 vs RHP; .269 in July; 52 games at 2B with 4 errors (.983); 22 games at 3B with 2 errors (.962); 12 games in the OF without an error; More was expected by Sweeney with that bat, although he has been improving as of late. Has been solid but not outstanding with the glove.
Jesmuel Valentin, 22, Acquired from Dodgers in 2014; .270/.344/.391 in 348AB(almost all with Reading); 5HR 38RBI; 4/7SB; 10%BB/15%K; 80 games at 2B with 10 errors (.974); 9 games at SS with 3 errors (.900); Valentin has put himself on the map as a prospect this year after missing the 2015 season suspended. He has produced with both the bat and glove and scouts have said that he now projects as a major leaguer, albeit likely a reserve.
Angelo Mora, 23, Signed as a free agent in 2010; .256/.316/.375 in 301AB; 4HR 33RBI; 3SB; 8%BB/19%K; .289 vs LHP; .244 vs RHP; .226 in July; 14 games at 2B with 3 errors (.961); 32 games at SS with 7 errors (.953); 24 games at 3B with 4 errors (.907); 14 games in the OF without an error; Mora has done a good job and shown his versatility throughout the year. Problem is, I believe he maxes offensively where he is at.
KC Serna, 26, Re-signed as a free agent in 2016; .287/.380/.384 in 237AB; 3HR 28RBI; 6/11SB; 13%BB/14%K; .250 vs LHP; .302 vs RHP; .273 in July; 29 games at SS with 5 errors(.962); 16 games at 3B with 2 errors (.935); 6 games at 2B with 1 error (.955); 23 games in the OF with 1 error. Serna has been consistent all year, been asked to do many things and has done them well.
Scott Kingery, 22, Phils 2nd round pick in 2016; .295/.360/.416 in 387AB (almost all with CW); 4HR 29RBI; 26/31SB; 8%BB/13%K; .383 vs LHP; .257 vs RHP; .193 with RISP; 91 games at 2B with 10 errors (.975); The numbers are exactly where you want them with the exception that his work with RISP sticks out like a sore thumb. That said, this year has been very successful. Continue reading Around the System–Middle Infield
