    1. I think the next natural move is to Williamsport. Assuming he’s ready for a promotion (which is not necessarily the case, although it’s more than possible), there’s no reason I can see for him to skip a level.

      1. The whole “Phillies taking the Austrialian plunge” thing is looking very encouraging!
        * Rixon Wingrove … .343/.413/.600
        * Curtis Mead … .322/.420/.475
        * They just spent 850 thousand dollars on Josh Gessner
        * … and … Josh Tols CB is one of my favorite things to watch in all of MiLB

  1. I don’t know if this should fall under the category of too soon but here are the hitting stats:

    (Hitting Leaders with minimum 200 PAs through Wednesday 7/17:

    BA: Bohm (.392); Castillo (.307); Grullon (.297); Romine (.294)

    OBP: Bohm (.392); Listi (.370); Grullon (.360); Haseley (.360); Walding (.360)

    Slg%: Bohm (.537); Grullon (.491); Haseley (.481); Hall (.477); Listi (.465)

    OPS: Bohm (.930); Grullon (.851); Haseley (.840); Listi (.836)

    RBI: Listi (59); Hall (56); Bohm (54); Ortix (51); Grullon (51)

    HR: Ortiz (16); Hall (15); Listi (15); Grullon (12); Bohm (12)

    3B: Moniak (10) Junior Ortega (5); 5 guys with (4) including Bohm and Stephen

    2B: Hall (27); Bohm (24); Moniak (21); Canelo (18)

    Hits: Bohm (105); Castillo (88); Guzman {88}; Moniak (84);

    BBs: Walding (57); Listi {47}; Hall (37); L. Williams (37); Gamboa (37); Bohm (36);

    Ks: Walding (115); Stobbe (107); De La Cruz (105); Ortiz (103)

    Bohm, Listi and Grullon show up in a lot of categories. Haseley also but he’s starting to play some games at the Major League level.

  2. And the pitching stats:

    Pitching Leaders (Minimum 50 IP through Wednesday 7/17) except Wins, Losses, Ks, BBs and Saves

    ERA: Jones (1.47); Evanko (1.61); J. Hernandez (1.93); Lindow (2.56); J. Garcia (2.87); Brogdon (2.96)

    WHIP: J. Hernandez (.955); Evanko (.970); Brogdon (.987); Jones (1.004)

    Ks: Jones (125); Eastman (100); J. Garcia (89); Morales (87); Lindow (85); Requena (85)

    BBs: Dohy (40); Mezquita (40); Jones (37); Gowdy (36)

    Saves: Russ (14); Hennigan (8); Killgore (8); Rios (7)

    Wins: Windle (7); Evanko (7)

    Losses: Requena (7); Eastman (7); Santos (7); Viza (7)

    K/9: Jones (13.1); Brogdon (12.7); Morales (12.6)

  3. Yacksel Rios stinks. Time to take him off the 40; it’s ridiculous that hes still one of the first arms up when a bullpen arm is needed

  4. Israel Puello starts getting noticed. He appears big for a prototypical 18 yo latin kid — Puello is 6’3″ 200 lbs. Puello made improvements with his command and he is hitting bats. So it will be interesting to see how the pitches look like because with age and size, that’s a dream projection either as a TOR or high leverage arm.

    Puello coming soon to GCL!!

  5. Earlier I think there was a discussion of Forkball vs splitter…. if I remember correctly Hsin-Chieh Lin who is listed above under Williamsport Game 1 was identified as a forkball pitcher when he was signed. Wonder if he is still using it!
