  1. Ortiz should have everyone excited. The Clearwater lineup looks very good now. Reading’s lineup is looking better also.

    1. Ortiz was my sleeper coming into the season . . looks like it’s clicking . . even when he wasn’t hitting there were walks that showed he had some clue at the plate

        1. Shows how deep his hole was that this stretch was finally enough to get his overall average above the Mendoza line.

          Good to see him string some games together.

          1. I am curious to see how he does after the sun goes down during a night game.
            I think his day/night splits were really a 180…..I think i saw that somewhere…and maybe the difficulties he had with eye/optic issues affecting his night vision.
            Not sure if it was reported on this site or I read it on another Phillie blog.

      1. I’m glad to see he is finding a groove, and double-digit walks are certainly a good sign. That said — his 38.7% K-rate is beyond the Hewitt-sphere. He needs to drastically cut down on the strikeouts and maintain power to regain his status as a prospect in my eyes.

        Bohm’s bat looks as advertised, though. He’s the real deal. Bonus: No errors in a dozen games at Clearwater! He only has 2 errors in 24 games this year after having 9 in 29 games at third last year. I know errors aren’t the only measure of a player’s defense, but you’ve got to imagine a year of working with the Phillies developmental staff is paying off in this area.

    1. No…he is signed but just ‘unassigned’ to a team yet. …sitting in EXSt
      Will probably be on Red or White in the GCL which starts in 2/3 weeks.

    1. Pretty good week for Adam! Hoping to see it continue. It would be pretty big for the org if he and MM continue to get stronger as season goes on.

  2. I continue to enjoy tracking Kyle Glogoski. Checked on him during ABL in winter and now his piggyback starts at Lakewood. He continues to show promise. 0.79 era, 0.88 whip, 17/5 K/BB in 11.1 IP.

    Here’s link to good milb.com article about him today.
    It doesn’t ref his current FB speed. The only ref I find is from a 2018 goodphight article that quotes that as part of a tour of players going against mlb rookie teams in 2017 he threw 92 mph. He was only 18 then so maybe it’s ticked up some. Given this article says a lot about his pitch repertoire and makeup being strong and his FB having good movement, if his FB has ticked up he’s definitely one to watch closely!

      1. Thanks Romus. If he was hitting 94 in the winter at age 19 turning 20 then maybe there’s even another tick or two to come. Adds to the reasons to be interested in his future. 🙂

        1. John….though I did notice the other night in the game he was only at 89
