Clearwater Threshers Recap – 5/30/2018

The Clearwater Threshers (19-29) lost to the Fort Myers Miracle, 6-3.  

Connor Seabold gave up 3 runs in the sixth inning to ruin an otherwise stellar start.  He held the Miracle to one run on 3 hits through 5.0 innings.  He had walked none and struck out three.  However, a lead off HR in the sixth and 3 two-out base hits plated 3 runs and brought an end to Seabold’s day.

Around the System–Catchers

Lehigh Valley

Logan Moore, 27, Phils 9th round pick in 2011; .162/.296/.265 in 68AB; 1HR 6RBI; 14%BB/22%K; .231 vs LHP, .145 vs RHP; 24 games caught with 1 error; 11/18 CS(61%); Stats say it all…Moore is outstanding defensively and lacks production with the bat.

Nick Rickles, 28, Acquired from Washington in 2017; .295/.310/.474 in 78AB; 4HR 13RBI; 2%BB/20%K; .324 vs LHP; .273 vs RHP; 22 games caught without an erro; 3/10 CS (30%); Rickles has done a real good job this year splitting playing time with Logan Moore.


Deivi Grullon, 22, Signed as a free agent in 2012; .312/.333/.606 in 109AB; 9HR 25RBI; 4%BB/19%K; .333 vs LHP; .306 vs RHP; 29 games caught with 5 errors (.979); 10/32 CS (31%); Grullon has been outstanding with the bat and while his power may be partially atreibutable to the “Reading effect” (7HR at home), he is hitting over .300 on the road.  Defense has not been subpar but not quite as good as in years passed.

Austin Bossart, 24, Phils 14th round pick in 2015; .242/.286/.409 in 66AB; 2HR 7RBI; 6%BB/23%K; 20 games caught without an error; 9/30 CS (30%); Bossart continues to do a very nice job as the back up to Grullon.


Henri Lartigue, 23, Phils 7th round pick in 2016; .309/.374/.495 in 97AB; 3HR 10RBI; 7%BB/23%K; .333 vs LHP; .293 vs RHP; 24 games caught with 1 error; 8/20 CS (29%); AFter seeing limited time behind the plate last season, Lartigue has been getting regular playing time and taking advantage of it, as one of CLearwaters’s top hitters thus far.  He has been solid defensively as well.

Edgar Cabral, Phils 11th round pick in 2015; .284/.389/.432 in 81AB; 3HR 15RBI; 14%BB/19%K; .348 vs LHP; .259 vs RHP; .224 in May; 20 games caught with 1 erro (.995); 6/24 CS (25%); Cabral has been very solid thus far.


Rodolfo Duran, 20, Signed as a free agent in 2014; .168/.189/.308 in 107AB; 3HR 12RBI; 3%BB/21%K; .163 vs LHP; .172 vs RHP; 31 games caught with 1 error (.997); 19/40 CS (48%); Very poor with the bat, very sound defensively even with his small frame.

Gregori Rivero, 22, Signed as a free agent in 2012; .230/.274/.368 in 87AB; 2HR 10RBI; 5%BB/21%K; .200 vs LHP; .242 vs RHP; 16 games caught without an error; 2/6 CS; One noticeable stat is that the opposition isnt running on him.

Colby Fitch, 22, Phils 13th round pick in 2017; .262/.357/.440 in 84AB; 2HR 14RBI; 10%BB/20%K; .250 vs LHP; .271 vs RHP; 3 games caught without an erro r; 0/2 CS; Fitch has spent his time almost exclusively DH’ing with a short stint on the DL.
