  1. Critical year for Darick Hall.
    Assume he starts in Reading, and with that, he really needs to get out of the gates fast and produce, so he can get the nod for the promo to LHV. This will keep his progression on track.

    Interestingly….he does not compare all that different than Ryan Howard in their first three years of pro ball at the same age.
    Hall’s first 1259PAs thru AA ball at Reading, and Ryan Howards first 1326PAs thru hi-A CLW there are some similarities.

    Howard…slash-289/375/485…27%-Krate….11%-BB(27-IBB, 15-HBP)…ISO-195…HRs-48
    Hall……….slash261/336/500…23%-Krate….6%-BB(4-IBB, 54 –HBP)……ISO-239…HRs-64

    1. Guys like Hall and Listi MUST rake at a serious level in order to justify upward movement in the organization. And not just power numbers. OBP and an acceptable K rate.

      1. 8mark…”And not just power numbers. OBP and an acceptable K rate”…whats left defense?
        They are never going to be Gold Glove defenders at whatever positions they end up…they are not speedy guys, their arms are average…it comes down to their bat and their ISO…and they cannot be ‘Ben Reverish’ either, stroking singles.
        Incidentally, Hall was close to the lead…first or second…for the Phillies minors in RISP average

        1. Romus, what will come first – the DH in the NL or a work stoppage? They are both AL players at the moment. If we can hide Hoskins at 1b, you can do the same for them, but not with this organization. Trade pieces to be.

          1. I think that the DH comes to the NL next year as well as expansion of the rosters to 26 or 27, and possibly double the expected cap increase.

            1. Doesn’t the DH have to be approved thru a CBA forum?
              If that is the case, the next CBA talks are Dec 2021.

  2. Grullon next for sure. Then maybe Pipkin. But a kid I really like here is 3B Jake Scheiner. Will be a big year for him to perform at Clearwater and bump a level with performance. But the kid has good size, range, arm strength and offensive tools to be a backend 3B prospect for us.

      1. Third base is probably one of the weakest positions in the system.
        Middle infielders, OFers and catchers are pretty solid from low A thru Reading…but third base seems to be lacking a lot of potential.
        Bohm has to be the one.

  3. Stewart again. I dropped Hall from my top 30. I didn’t want to but there were a lot of lower level guys who really opened my eyes. Hall took a step backward last year and Reading was where I thought he’d really launch his career. I’m not giving up on him. He should acclimate to Reading this year and then move on to LHV. From there, he’s on a hard stop. He’s not sub-planting Hoskins and having two 1B only guys on the roster is not functional. And if you say Listi is a 1B only too. A logjam will ensue. There will be anarchy…

  4. I’m more of a Proximity voter, so Grullon is my next and probably last vote. I could see Grullon on the 25 man roster at some point is year. I can also see Jeff Singer (who isn’t even an option) on the roster this year.

  5. I’m a big Kyle Dohy fan .98 WHIP near 17K per 9 at LKW this kid could rocket through the system and be a dominant lefty out of the pen in CBP.
