Minor League Discussion: Week of January 7, 2019

Players will begin reporting to the Complex in Clearwater this week or next.  Some will be continuing rehab from injuries sustained last season.  Some will take part in a job program with the city of Clearwater that allows them enough time to work out at the Complex.  Some will begin reporting on their own dime.

Almost time to begin daily trips to the Complex.

No more non-roster invites to announce.  The Phillies usually invite over 60 players to spring training.  Expect more to be made public in January.

The Phillies did sign a minor league free agent, Edward Paredes.  He’s a 32-year-old LHP and will be assigned to Lehigh Valley.

By my count, the organization includes 354 players.

This is the Phuture Phillies Discussion Page for Prospect and Minor League discourse. No Phillies talk here.

Key Dates:

  • TBA (last year on February 27th) – Minor League Spring Training begins
  • TBA (last year on March 13th) – Minor League Spring Training games begin

The rosters and lists are up to date.

  1. Jim – pretty soon, it will be time to open camp again. I’ll see you March 15 – 17 during my annual trip to spring training. I’ll be sure to say hello (after visiting Lenny’s).

  2. Spring training unofficially started today, Monday, January 7, 2019. Alec Bohm was at the Complex. WooHoo! More guys expected to be there on Thursday. Double WooHoo!!

    1. Impressive since they’re on their own dime for another month. Bohm knows he needs to produce this year. I’m looking forward to him and Garcia starting the year together in Lakewood. Unless they move Bohm straight to Clearwater, depending on his ST performance

  3. Is Bohm more likely to start in Lakewood? I usually go to see them at least once a year and have had Milb.tv every year going back to when Franco was in Lakewood. Really hoping to see Bohm as I don’t know much about him and unless Milb.tv adds more Flo St teams, Clearwater usually is only on Milb.tv when they play Bradenton.

  4. I’m really looking forward to see what Bohm does. Hoping for a huge year with the bat. I’m not too worried about him having to be a gold glover at 3rd. If Miggy could fake it for all those years he can too.

  5. More from Clearwater:

    Just got back from the Complex. Eight players have joined Alec Bohm – Nick Matera, Carlos De La Cruz, Kyle Young, Ben Brown, Tyler McKay, Seth McGarry, Jake Kinney, and one pitcher we could not identify at a distance. Heard Nick Pivetta is also here but didn’t see him.

    Coaches include Shawn Williams, Roly de Armas, Ray Burris, Greg Brodzinsky, and several trainers and nutritionists.

    PLayers spent time in the weight room before taking the field for stretching and running. Bohm, De La Cruz, and Matera hit off Brodzinsky and Williams. Pitchers went back inside.

    Be back tomorrow.

    1. That’s a whole lot of height in those players. Young, Brown, De La Cruz, Kinney, and McKay are all at least 6’6″.

    2. The sweet sounds of baseball! I just watched the making of sandlot. 25 year anniversary of the movie. You’re killing me Smalls! lives on.
