There were a couple of live batting practices this morning. Robinson Martinez threw in the second one against a group that included four of the this year’s draft picks – Bryson Stott, Jamari Baylor, Marcus Lee Sang, and Jadiel Sanchez. Martinez was bringing it around 95 mph. The guys didn’t enjoy much success against him.
I missed Waylon Richardson who went ahead of Martinez. But, he told me later that he struck out one batter, got a hard come backer, and several rollovers. He said he felt good, better than he did during his first live BP earlier in the week, and hopes to get in a game next week.
During the game, a couple more pitchers were sent to Williamsport. Their transactions should show up tomorrow.
Clearwater (11-6, 47-36) snapped a 3-game losing streak with a 6-3 win over Tampa.

GCL Phillies East (3-4) lost to GCL Phillies West (7-2) 5-4 in a walk off.
When the teams last met, West no-hit East. This time, East got a hit from their first batter.
The West pitchers –
- Eduar Segovia pitched four, one-hit innings allowing an unearned run and striking out two. His FB was 91-94 mph.
- Gunner Mayer pitched 1.2 innings gave up 2 runs (only one ER) on 2-hits and a walk striking out two. His FB was 90-94 mph, some with lateral movement and some with downward sink. I think he was removed for pitch count.
- Aidan Anderson allowed a hit and a walk in 1.1 innings and struck out three. His FB was 87-90 mph. He threw a couple of slow curves at 68 mph.
- Erik Miller made his debut and pitched a one-hit inning striking out two. His FB was 90-94 mph. He throws over the top., but it looks like he slips down to 3/4 on non FB. He gave up a one-out triple on an 87 mph off speed pitch, but came back to strike out the next 2 batters.
- Austin Crowson gave up an unearned run on 2 walks in one inning. His FB was mid 80s.
The East pitchers –
- Victor Vargas threw four, four-hit innings striking out two. His FB was 86-91 mph.
- Rafael Marcano gave up 3 runs in three innings, striking out four. HIs FB was 90-92 mph.
- Jose Ulloa pitched a clean inning with one strike out. His FB was 92-94 mph.
- Carlos Francisco got just one out and gave up 3 hits resulting in 2 runs, one unearned. His FB was 92-95 mph.
East got a hit and scored on an error in the first inning. They padded their lead with 2 runs in the fifth on Guarner Dipre’s RBI single and a double steal (Micah Yonamine at home, Dipre at second). West tied the game in the sixth on Bruce Wang’s RBI double and Rixon Wingrove’s 2-run HR (2).
The East took the lead in the top of the ninth on Kevin Escalante’s sac fly. But, the West came back in the bottom of the inning on Edgar Made’s RBI single. A throwing error let him go to third. He scored on Jose Rivera’s RBI single. Wingrove led the charge from the dugout to throw his water on Rivera while his team mates doused him with the larger container. You would have thought they won a championship.
- #27 Starlyn Castillo has a blister on his index finger and appears to be close to his first action. The finger looks to be completely healed.
DSL Phillies Red (18-8) beat Mets1, 8-6 in eleven innings.
DSL Phillies White (18-11) beat Rangers2, 6-5 in 10 innings.
