  1. Wow! What has gotten into Luke Williams? He has raised his average with his 5 hit game. And actually, he has been on a mini tear the last two weeks. Keep it up!

  2. I would say something in regard to Luis Garcia but I’ll let the box score and slash line speak for itself.

    1. What’s your point?
      He’s struggling but there showing faith in him because he has shown promise. Hope he proves you and other doubters wrong for the rest of the season and beyond

  3. At this rate, Tatum will be in Clearwater before the end of the year! I missed him in Salisbury on Monday night. De La Cruz is heating up also. He was a couple feet shy of 2 homers on Monday! Tatum is one of the elder statesmen.

    1. DeLaCruz is catching fire in the 2nd half, something we hope Luis Garcia can do. He is plummeting on my prospect list. He’s not just struggling, he’s overmatched.
      Tatum is doing a nice job, I hope he keeps it up.
      Shout out for our boy Haseley!!!!! Well done!

      1. I think it’s interesting that scouts and sites that rank players raved about Luis Garcia last year putting him pretty high on prospect lists.

        Only one guy that I know of sounded a note of caution: Jim Peyton. As you’ll recall, Jim said that Garcia at times appeared weak and overmatched. I don’t remember Jim’s exact words and don’t want to put words in his keyboard, as it were, but that’s what I took away from what he wrote.

        So, here we are, a year later and Jim’s caution appears to have been better informed than all the national experts.

        Moral of the story: for early career starters in the Phillies system, we have the best scout available in Jim.

        As always, Jim, thanks for your great service with this site.

        Meanwhile, let’s hope that Luis comes back next season a year older, stronger, more experienced and able to show that promise that excited all last year.

    1. I think he’ll be around but there’s no way he gets a 40 man roster spot at the end of the season.

  4. Gustavo Armas, who was a pretty solid pitcher last year in Wmsprt and LKW, completely forgets how to pitch for most of 2019 in Wmsprt and CLW. Suddenly, he throws a 1 hit, 4 inning gem for Reading and who made that decision to promote him to Reading.. I’ll await his next start to see if this is a mirage.

    1. Gustavo Armas is not a good pitcher. He looks good in LWD last year because he’s 22 doing a repeat in LWD. Phillies will move Armas around before eventually releasing him.

  5. Simon Muzziotti. .280 , 15 SB. And only 20 yrs old at Clearwater playing CF.
    If cutch comes back healthy, you also have Haseley, MM, and Muzziotti playing CF…

    1. Way too early to speculate about that. Odds say that at least one of MM/Muzziotti won’t make it.

      And Cutch was playing out of position in CF. He’s more of a LF at this point in his career.

  6. Was Johan Rosas a high bonus guy? He hit well in the GCL and now he’s bumped to Williamsport. He’s an 18 yo center fielder. Might be a guy to watch.

    1. Since he was 17 he probably did not get as a large a bonus as the below 16 -years olds in 2017, where they also signed a record, for the Philies, over 60 foreign kids, which also helped to fill their new academy in the DR
      Phillies paid out approx $5.5M for that signing period..

      Luis Garcia,…$2.5M
      Victor Vargas….$525K
      Alfonso Puello… $460K
      Jefferson Encarnacion….$265K
      Abrahan Guiterrez………$350K
      Mitch Edwards….$100K
      Hsin-Chieh Lin…$200K
      Cesar Rodriguez….$500K
      Oscar Gonzalez….$135K
      Carlos Betancourt…$460K
      Alberto Torres,….$90K

  7. Can anyone recall a top pitching prospect with less swing-and-miss results at the AA level than Adonis Medina? 6K/9 OP puts him below the Tom Eshelman level (at AA). Somebody explain to me why I want his baseball card.
