Threshers Recap – 5/31/2019

Clearwater (28-26) began an important series against first place Dunedin and forgot their bats as they lost 3-1.

Ethan Evanko (2-1, 2.01) pitched effectively but gave up 2 runs (1 ER) in six innings.  He gave up 8 hits and walked three while striking out a career high seven Blue Jays. 

Evanko threw a career high 93 pitches, 63 strikes (67.7%).  He was a little unlikely in the first inning.  After a one-out walk, the Jays batter hit a ball into the hole that SS Nick Maton was able to field but not make a throw.  A dribbler up the middle eluded both Maton and second baseman Daniel Brito and rolled into center field.  The infielders looked like they both pulled up in deference to the other.  The runner on second scored easily.  Matt Vierling threw wide left to third base and the runner from first scored on the errant throw.

Evanko shut the Jays down the rest of the way even though they got 3 of their 5 doubles against him.

Tyler Carr (4.32) pitched two innings and gave up a run on back-to-back doubles.  Grant Dyer (0.74) pitched a 2 strike out ninth.

The Threshers scored their lone run on Jake Scheiner’s two-out, solo HR (2) in the fifth inning.

The Threshers managed just 4 hits, their lowest hit total since a 4-hit effort in a 5-0 loss on May 2nd.

Alec Bohm drew the team’s only 2 walks.

The defense turned 3 double plays.

Simon Muzziotti could be coming off the IL this weekend.  He crashed into the wall chasing a fly ball last Friday in Jupiter.  The field has no warning track.  He crumpled to the ground immediately and was later placed on the 7-day IL as a precaution.  He remained with the team and was in the dug out tonight.

  • #1 Alec Bohm (.310) went 0-2 with 2 BB
  • #5 Spencer Howard (1-1, 2.25) placed on the 7-day IL, shoulder soreness
  • #11 Jhailyn Ortiz (.215) went 1-3 
  • #12 Simon Muzziotti (.306) placed on the 7-day IL

  • #19 Rodolfo Duran (.211) went 0-3
  • #20 Daniel Brito (.252) went 1-3

Lehigh Valley (27-24) lost to Scranton, 8-0.

Enyel De Los Santos pitched two innings.  He gave up 4 runs in the first inning.  He allowed 3 hits, walked one, and struck out three.  He threw 44 pitches and was probably lifted in case the Phillies need a reliever.

Alexis Rivero (3.46) pitched three innings, allowed no runs, 2 hits, 2 walks, and no strike outs.  Kyle Dohy (10.20) gave up 3 runs.  Josh Tols (8.10) got dinged for an unearned run.

Reading (28-21) lost to Richmond, 9-4.

Ramon Rosso (3-2, 3.35) lasted 5.2 innings and gave up 7 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks.  He struck out six.  Aaron Brown (3.04) got dinged with 2 unearned runs in 2.1 innings of work.  Connor Brogdon (4.00) struck out two in a scoreless inning.

Austin Listi was the offense.  He went 3-4 with 2 runs scored, a double, 4 RBI, and 2 HR (3).  Grenny Cumana had a two-hit game.

Lakewood (18-35)  beat Greensboro, 7-3.

Tyler McKay (5.50) pitched four no-hit innings.  He was lifted after 72 pitches, 2 walks, and 2 strike outs.  Gilmael Troya (2.42) threw one, one-hit inning with 2 strike outs.  Kyle Glosgoski (3-1, 0.96) gave up one run in 2.1 innings on a hit and a walk.  He struck out five.  He left the game after an injury delay.  A one-out single in the eighth inning was a line drive that deflected off Kyle.  Abdullah Aris (11.57) allowed an inherited runner to score in 0.2 innings and gave up 2 of his own runs on 3 walks and 2 wild pitches.  Mark Potter (1.35) pitched a perfect ninth.

The BlueClaws scored 3 runs in the second inning on an error and Hunter Stovall’s 2-run single.  They added 3 more runs in the fourth on a balk, Stovall’s RBI single and a fielding error.  Cole Stobbe’s solo HR (5) in the sixth capped Lakewood’s scoring.

17 thoughts on “Threshers Recap – 5/31/2019

  1. The DSL season starts June 2 (as Jim noted above). I see the rosters getting filled. 2 more box scores to peruse most days.

    1. It would be nice if Tejada’s kid ends up being as good as Tatis’ or Vlad’s. Looks like he’ll start out as a CF rather than a SS.

      1. Yes, hoping his positive test for PED (amphetamine) last July both taught him a lesson and proves a very fortunate break for the Phillies. (We signed him 8 months after White Sox pulled their offer.)

        I’m excited to see how he does however my expectations are quite tempered. Given he was not even a top 50 international prospect last year he is unlikely the same ilk as Vlad or Fernando’s sons.

          1. Phillies have always been good at getting the wrong brother. Maybe trying their luck with children now

  2. Attended the Fight’ns game last nite and Jim summarized it pretty well. I wasn’t impressed with Rosso, the squirrels hit his FB 92 pretty well and the outs were hit hard as well. K’s mostly came on his curve. Listi had a good game with 2 dingers. Moniak sat to my dismay until he PH, fouling out to left field.

  3. Let’s hope Glogoski’s removal for injury was just precautionary.

    He was dominant again. Only hit against was his last pitch that deflected off him (and scored due to ineffective reliever).
    I remain quite excited about him! (0.96, 0.75, 33/6 in 18.2 for season)

  4. It would be great if Muzziotti can come back soon. It was easy to worry that he’d be out for a long time after crashing into the wall. Hopefully he can pick up where he left off.

    And man, the Phils’ pitching injury bug extends to the minors again. Hopefully Glogoski’s removal was more precautionary than anything. He’s been dealing.

      1. You can see why he’s dominating hitters at that level. Question for me is, how would that big curveball play against advanced hitters? Also, can he add a few mph to the fastball.

        1. Glogoski’s fastball was topped at 91 mph when he made his debut on May 2 vs the West Virginia Power….but it was early right after ExST for him
          However, when he pitched this winter down under in the ABL he was clocked at 92-94….not sure how accurate their readings were in that league.

    1. I tweeted that Muzziotti played in an intrasquad game today. He didn’t play the whole game. As he entered the club house, I asked how he felt and would he be in the line up for the Threshers tonight. He said “Fine” (they all say fine) and “No, maybe Monday”.

      Jan Hernandez played a whole game today in center field.

      And, Roman Quinn batted for both teams each half inning until he had about 6 at bats. As reported by the Phillies, he has abandoned switch hitting, and is batting right-handed against RHP.

  5. Attended last nights Readings game. Once again not happy with defensive and offensive play and hustle of our prospects. No effort at the plate, last two games hits were generous scorekeeping. Defensive non-effort on potential double play cost pitcher ERA. Expect more but he does not have to perform. 40 man roster privileges
    Would hope he would set example, leadership
    Old school

    1. I agree with your assessment of the Reading group. Its been a long time since I’ve seen the lack of enthusiasm that this team exhibited to me last night. They look mostly like A ball players and I suppose in a way that is exactly what they are. I didn’t see anyone in the group that played, that impressed me.

      1. Harvey summed it up…..when a player gets the 40 honor , that really is a gift for some unknown reason since past production did not warrant such a selection, and who’s attitude sometimes can use a re-adjustment and who at times may be too lackadaisical in certain situations on the field …others may feel slighted and disgruntled. The morale may be an issue right now.
