When I arrived at the Complex, Erik Miller was throwing a live batting practice on Ashburn Field. I only saw about a dozen pitches. It looked like he was throwing 3/4 arm slot, but a few appeared to be over the top. He looked good, can’t wait to see more.
Stott, Lee Sang, and Sanchez were on Schmidt Field, shagging during batting practice. Just as their group was called to hit, some rain began to fall, what we called a sun shower up north. The coaches called practice just as the rain stopped. Stott, Lee Sang, and Sanchez were in the group that was about to take BP. Dang.
Connor Seabold threw three solid innings as a rehab opener for the GCL squad. He was over-powering, as he should be.
I updated the Draft Tracker. Based on reported bonuses, it appears the Phillies are done. Now, on to the J2 international signing period.
Clearwater (10-4, 46-34) lost to Fort Myers, 6-0.
Alejandro Requena pitched well. He held the Miracle to one run in six innings. He allowed 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out four. This seemed unlikely after Requena needed 27 pitches to get through the first inning. But, he needed just 58 pitches for the next five innings.
Oscar Marcelino stunk. He gave up 4 runs although they were recorded as unearned. He threw just 16 strikes among his 31 pitches and gave up lasers off the bats of the Miracle batters. He looked terrible. Kyle Arjona entered and got the last out. Then continued to pitch until he accrued 1.2 innings and gave up a run on 3 hits, striking out two. Keylan Killgore came in with the bases loaded and struck out the two batters he faced.
