31 thoughts on “Threshers Recap – 8/10/2019

  1. I wish Tom Windell best of luck, but after 4 and a half years and not being able to get past AAA, it was time to move on. But on the bright side, Alec Bohm and Bryson Stott have seemed to work their way out of their slumps, and Mickey Moniak continues to rack up the extra base hits. Personally, I don’t care whether Mickey Mo hits 15-20 HRs a year. That is not his strength. His calling card is doing exactly what he is doing right now, hit line drives in the gaps and use his speed to create RBI opportunities for his teammates.

    1. Bohm only has 2 strikeouts in his last 10 games, so after an initial spike in K% in AA he’s got it down to 13.5%. That’s a good sign; hopefully the BABIP will head upwards closer to what it was in A-ball.

    2. We complain about MM minor league outcomes so far but if this translates to MLB, he would be the leader in the Phillies’ OF.

  2. I expect that the farm system will take a hit next year with the (probable) promotion of Bohm, Howard, Medina and possibily other, but there’re something interesting brewing on the lower lvs.

  3. Jhailyn Ortiz needs some time off right now. He’s all tangled up in his underwear and maybe a few days off can held him untangle. He’s hitting .057 in his last 10 games (2 for 35). You’d think he could get more than 2 excuse me base hits. He strikes out more than an 80 year old hunch backed man at a Victoria Secret photo shoot. He hasn’t hit a HR since July 17 (20 games). Maybe they should move him down in the lineup to take that #3 hitter pressure off?

    Haseley’s looking like he’s going to lose his prospect status pretty soon. Muzziotti is quickly moving up my top 30. He can play all OF positions so even if Moniak were somehow held back in AA next year, Muzziotti will be on that roster. Muzziotti’s bat plays best in CF but he’s ready for AA now.

    1. I agree about Ortiz. I know there was a big discussion last week about an article on Luis Garcia, and how stats don’t tell the whole story. But I would be interested in how the Phillies brass is evaluating his season, and the many scouts from other teams in how they assess his season so far.

    2. There is nothing that says Moniak should be held in AA next year. Crazy to even think that. I think he has a legit shot out of spring training to join big league club at some point next yr soiner than later. Like Hasely this yr.

      1. Moniak numbers don’t Sceam. big club not yet. He is a 260 hitter at reading a hitters park. lets him show he belongs,

        1. Home run park. All parks are same for singles, doubles and triples; which he is above average in a pitchers’ league.

        2. Top hitter in Eastern League is at .297 and Moniak in top 18 hitters. Probably one of the or THE youngest in league.

          1. Denny….if it happens it will be the first time the EL will not have a hitter with a BA over .300 from what I could find…..the last fourteen years almost every year had between 5 and 9 hitters with BAs over to well-over .300.
            Only in 2006 were there only two hitters over .300

  4. A guy we never talk about is former 3rd rd pick Luke Williams. Since being drafted he has underperformed his draft position, like many of us predicted, and he started out this year promoted to Reading and not hitting as usual. However, a funny thing has happened. Luke hit 290 in July and he’s well over 300 in August and is up to 23 steals. He’s done this while playing lots of positions and leading off. He’s looking like a guy who could be a valuable utility bench guy. Congrats to him for becoming relevant and I hope he keeps it up.

    1. Maybe a Bruntlett type of utility guy. I was curious to see if the Reading Factor is playing into his uptick in numbers but it’s not that drastic.

  5. The gun at LV must have been reading low…..Dohy barely touched 90…maybe once or twice in his dozen all-over-the-place pitches.

      1. Yes that is what struck me….and even when Vieira hit 100 and 99 often, it did look that way
        Who knows!.

  6. Glogoski continues to be exciting. 6 ip yesterday was his high for the year (did it twice last yr). His K/BB and K/9 are a little lower at CW than at LKW (or GCL in ’18) but other than back-to-back starts issuing 4 BB each, he’s never had more than 2 BB in a start and only issued 3 in last 3 starts combined.

    It mostly comes down to his stuff. We’ve already written several times about reports of his FB in the low 90s over a year ago. If he can gain a couple mph in the next couple years he profiles as a strong SP given his control and his consistency (every start between 4-6 ip) (never has given up more than 2 er in any appearance) (in over 100 career IP now he has 1.84 era and 0.97 whip)! He’s only 20 until next year and at 6’2″, 183, it’s reasonable to expect him to fill out to add some strength and power.

    1. Yeah, I was going to say something similar. His curveball seems pretty good, so he may have a swing-and-miss pitch already, and his pitchability is another mark in his favor. The fastball and changeup are probably going to be what determines his ultimate outcome. He looks on track to start next year in AA.

      1. I typically trust what I see when I see a video of a guy pitching from the centerfield camera angle. Earlier this year I saw some footage of Glogoski from that angle and his stuff just seemed to pop. The curve and fastball has some electric movement – he really might be legit.

  7. Glogoski sounds very interesting indeed. There’s a lot of projection left for him and he strong points just keep gueting stronger.
