I think it’s safe to say that C Randolph is finished. I don’t care how small Grenny is he has, at least, made the most of his talents. Put him in left.
Is it normal in the minors for starting pitchers to only go 4, 5 or 6 innings when they pitch well? Noticing that we are growing pitchers to pitch limited innings then complain about them not pitching more than 5 or 6 innings in the majors.
Denny….for 19 thru 22 year olds it may be the best way to go until they are more physically developed. Now the guys at Reading and LHV who are 23 and older…..I, like you , question the policy,
….unless like DLS, who will be starting on Sunday vs the Braves and they want him further rested for the 4 days between his starts.
It’s a way to limit innings vs. shutting them down for stretches in the season but I also agree that the Phillies are overly cautious in limiting the workload of their pitchers.
A lot of those guys are also pitching on extra rest because of the 6-man rotations. Don’t expect to see any complete games from them in the majors.
Exactly. We groom them one way and then expect different in the majors. Don’t blame the students, blame the teachers.
Denny…you do realize what the average OPS in the majors for hitters the third time thru the lineup vs the same pitcher as opposed to the first time or second time they see that pitcher?
I do not think, no matte how far yup bring them along for extended innings in the minors, will make one heck of a bean of difference if in the 6th or 7th inning they are getting lit up by the opponent.
“In 2015, major leaguers hit .247 when facing a pitcher for the first time in a game, with an on-base percentage of .312 and a slugging percentage of .390. When facing a pitcher for the second time, they hit .261/.319/.416. When batting for a third time against the same pitcher, major leaguers hit .270/.330/.440.
In a 2013 piece for Baseball Prospectus, Mitchel Litchman took a deeper look at the numbers and declared that pitchers generally become weaker each additional time they have to work through the lineup — and he said this phenomenon is not simply a fatigue issue. Even at reasonably low pitch counts, a batter has a better chance once he’s had more chances to face the same pitcher in a game.”
I Don’t know the minors like a lot of people on here. I Am confused about A guy who I liked the first time I saw a video of him. One of the best swings I ever saw. I knew when they drafted Josh Stephens, he wasnt a good outfielder., What is confusing to me is why, he is a Dh when he really needs work on his outfield play. Practice is one thing, but playing in aa game to me is the best practice. I Now feel he will be a good trade piece to a American league team. His bat is coming on and he is still young. So maybe I am wrong but Phillies player development is really bad.
They typically rotate players through DH. Stephen this year has 10 starts at DH, 19 in LF, and 2 in RF. He has DH’d 2 times in 9 June games. He was at DH a lot more early when the OF was Haseley, Randolph, and Moniak
Agree on Randolph, Poor Guy just has not made changes in his game, Watched him H.S. Showcases,2013,2014 and had no plate approach. Stephen and Cumana cannot play defensively, routine fly ball outs turn into hits but neither can read the ball off the bat, pitchers make good pitches and watch in pain. Reading hitting is pathetic. Plate coverage and approach not evident, defensive play is uninspiring. Other teams far advanced. IS THERE COACHING or only to some, 1st rd or prospects. SS for 40 man roster ex. is a joke. Leadoff man’s job is get on base approach, NOT. 1 FOR 9, has no approach at plate just hacking. Has the talent but put in efforts they just keep playing him. Bring back William’s, Cumana, Listi or SOMEONE to set table, get that 5th at bat.
Starters, 6 innings and/or 80 pitch limit is to protect arm, good but how about coaching/teaching approach in situation. OOPS, this is Professional Baseball we do not coach.
How come other teams teach, shorten up, put ball in play,advance the runner. No we try to steal a base, in extra innings with slowest players. NO COACHING OR LACK OF
True Reading team is young but Teach
FYI Fangraphs updated their rankings. Adonis dropped a lot, from 44 to 75 in the top 100. Howard and Bohm each bumped up about ten spots into the high 50s. They ranked Stott 6th in the system, in the same tier as Luis Garcia and Adam Haseley. He’s the only draft pick that cracked their top 34.
Jamari Baylor @ 16???
Gamboa @ 18???
Throwing it up against the wall hoping something sticks.
