Around the System–Corner Infield

Lehigh Valley

Joey Meneses, 26, Signed as a free agent in 2018; .294/.332/.515 in 247 PA; 12HR 37RBI; 6%BB/22%K; .355 vs LHP; .255 vs RHP; .227 over last 28 days; 51 games at 1B with 1 error (.997); 9 games in the OF with 1 error and 1 OF assist; Menses has been struggling as of late, however still a nice body of work this season.

Matt McBride, 33, Signed as a free agent in 2018; .250/.357/.560 in 99PA: 7HR 14RBI; 14%BB/22%K; .267 vs LHP; .241 vs RHP; .341 last 28 days; 14 games at 1B with 1 error; 6 games caught with 1 error; A very slow start by McBride has been overcome by a very hot May/June during which he has hot for power.

Mitch Walding, 25, Phils 5th round pick in 2011; .264/.385/.477 in 234PA: 9HR 31RBI: 15%BB/29%K; .254 vs LHP; .258 vs RHP; .225 in June; 56 games at 3B with 7 errors (.953); 2 games at 1B without an error; Walding has been slumping in June after amajor league debut that saw him strike out in all 6AB’s.  That said, overall, still decent numbers this season.

Reading

Kyle Martin, 25, Phils 4th round pick in 2015; .196/.304/.357 in 175PA; 4HR 19RBI; 13%BB/21%K; .161 vs LHP; .205 vs RHP; .172 in June; 31 games at 1B with 1 error (.996); 3 games in the OF without an error; Martin continues to be nearly non existant with the bat and as such, has lost almost all his playing time to Darrick Hall.

Zach Green, 24, Phils 3rd round pick in 2012, .263/.343/.483 in 230AB; 10HR 33RBI; 10%BB/29%K; .273 vs LHP; .261 vs RHP; .200 in June; 25 games at 1B with 4 errors (.982); 20 games at 3B with 2 errors (.950); Green has been productive with the bat this season and is now seeing more playing time at 3B with TOmscha’s promotion to Lehigh Valley.

Darick Hall, 22, Phils 14th round pick in 2016; .258/.338/.502 in 263 PA between Clearwater and Reading;15HR 44RBI; 8%BB/21%K; .229 vs LHP; .270 vs RHP; Hitting .200 in 60 PA for Reading; 55 games at 1B with 2 errors (.996).  Hall has struggled early on in his transition to Reading although still hitting with power.  I have confidence his numbers will greatly improve over the next 75PA.

  1. seeing Williams and Martin makes me think of that 2015 draft, where they somewhat inexplicably went Williams for full slot in round 3 and then senior sign Martin in round 4 to save money-
    you see the Cards get Bader and Dejong later in those 2 rounds for a combined 600k; that’s great work by them.

    1. Add Bader and Dejong to the group of Allen Craig, Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams, the Cardinals seem to have the ability to find college talent in the later rounds

  2. Romus and if I am not mistaken they get kids out of small college. College you wouldn’t think have major league talent.

    1. Just yjr ywp recently, Matt Adams…Slippery Rock, PA..and Paul DeJong…. Illinois State University….the others all came from big name schools.
      Phillies are trying their best with DBU guys.

  3. Williams just hit his 4th HR of the year, had a nice swing putting it over the LF fence. He started out really badly in terms of his average but June has been much better to him so hopefully he keeps it up.

  4. This is looking like a lost year for Stobbe and he really needed a good showing. That’s unfortunate. Could maybe say the same for Greg Pickett who I think is hurt.

    Listi got promoted to Reading; good for him.
