29 thoughts on “Threshers Recap – 8/17/2019

  1. Glad to see Simmons and Stott continue to hit. However the lack of hitting that continues to plague most of the system is, quite frankly, depressing. The BA of the bottom of the order of a few of these teams is unbelievably bad. I know it’s the bottom of the order but still.

  2. Hey Booby here are the hitting stats through Friday:

    (Hitting Leaders with minimum 300 PAs through Friday 8/16:

    BA: Castillo (.323); Bohm (.306); Romine (.291); Grullon (.285); Robinson (.285); Muzziotti (.283)

    OBP: Bohm (.377); Castillo (.370); Robinson (.361); Grullon (.358); Maton (.356); Hall (.354)

    Slg%: Bohm (.525); Grullon (.483); Hall (.479); Stephen (.474); Castillo (.452); Moniak (.449)

    OPS: Bohm (.902); Grullon (.841); Hall (.833); Castillo (.819); Stephen (.818)

    RBI: Bohm (62); Grullon (59); Hall (64); Listi (64); Moniak (52)

    HR: Hall (20); Bohm (19); Grullon (17); Ortiz (16); Listi (16);

    3B: Moniak (11) Johan Rojas (10); Junior Ortega (6); Stephen (6); Kroon (6); Jefferson Encarnacion (6)

    2B: Hall (33); L. Williams (28); Moniak (27); Bohm (27); Canelo (25); Stephen (24)

    Hits: Bohm (129); Castillo (128); Guzman {113}; Moniak (107); Muzziotti (107); Grullon (103); Listi (102)

    Runs: Williams (68); Bohm(64); Hall (63); Castillo (62); Listi (59); Monaik (59)

    BBs: Walding (62); Hall (54); Gamboa (52); Listi {52}; Raymond Mora (49); Bohm (48)

    Ks: Stobbe (139); De La Cruz (137); Ortiz (135); Walding (133)

    Jefferson Encarnacion jumped onto the triples list. He’s 17 and playing in the DSL. I also looked at fewest Ks in 300 ABs. Shane Robinson leads that category (not listed above) with 31 but Marchan was #2 with 38.

  3. Pitching Leaders (Minimum 59 IP through Friday 8/16) except Wins, Losses, Ks, BBs and Saves

    ERA: Carr (1.31); Glogosky (1.58); Evanko (1.61); J. Hernandez (1.81); Howard (2.28)

    WHIP: Howard (.860); Glogosky (.922) Brogdon (.937); Evanko (.970); Lindow (.973)

    Ks: Jones (137); Eastman (128); Morales (114); Lindow (109); J. Garcia (105)

    BBs: Mezquita (53); J Dohy (50); Jones (49); Gowdy (49)

    Saves: Russ (19); Hennigan (9); Killgore (9); Potter (8)

    Wins: Parkinson (9); J. Garcia (8) and 6 tied with 7

    Losses: Requena (10); Santos (9); Eastman (8); Viza (8)

    K/9: Dohy (14.9); Brogdon (12.6); Jones (12.3); Howard (12.3); Morales (12.2)

    You might say 59 IP is pretty random but I chose it because Howard has 59.1 IP. A strange occurrence is Dohy leads in K/9 but he’s not in the top 7 in overall Ks. That’s, of course, because he only has 60 IP but has 99 Ks. Glogosky is pushing himself up the top 30.

  4. Congrats to Parkinson on getting his 10th AA win, a nice achievement.
    It’s great seeing Stott continue to hit, although I’m surprised he’s still in Wsport, but Simmons is the guy who has me very excited. He caught fire and he’s staying hot. He hit his 10th short season homer, not too shabby, and it’s great that the league recognized him as an all star. He was drafted as a raw toolsy guy who looks like he’s figuring things out. He’s flying up my prospect list.
    Btw, don’t worry about the low batting averages for the bottom of the order guys. They’re just playing so the prospects have a full team to play with.

    1. Regarding Kendall Simmons, it’s only Williamsport, so I’m not gonna get too excited just yet. But yeah, it’s good to see him hitting well, and flashing some speed and power. Would be nice if the Phillies finally hit on a raw, toolsy guy.

  5. Rosso might be getting back on track. In his last 2 outings spanning 12 IP, he’s given up up for hits and 1 ER. He has 12 Ks and 4 BBs. All the BBs were 2 games ago. 2 games is barely a trend but with the new ball in AAA, it takes some time to get the feel for it.

  6. bellman1
    Well done on the stats you posted. Thanks for that and I agree with Murray about not being to worked up about the bottom of the order of these teams. I guess I see people like Ortiz, who I had high hopes for. He’s floundering. Same with Luis Garcia. I realize he’s very young but I wish he would get his average above .200.

  7. Kendall Simmons..triple and homerun to right,groundout to first and 2 strikeouts.
    I’ll take that,still wondering why he didn’t play for a few days

  8. So, is Stott making a case for #1 spec in the system? Medina has had a down year. Howard has been hurt. Bohm has been very good, but is slightly faltering at the moment. If Stott just keeps mashing is he #1?

        1. Simmons definitely strikes out too much, and this is something to watch going forward. However, he really is just getting started in his pro career, with around 225 minor league at-bats. Plus, this season at Williamsport his OPS is .939 and over half his hits are for extra bases. If he’s able to maintain that, you can live with a high K rate.

          Again, it’s just Williamsport, so let’s not get too excited just yet, but Simmons gotten people’s attention.

    1. “Howard has been hurt”….?
      He has not missed a start since June 27th….9 starts in a row….even with the promotion to Reading.
      The shoulder soreness/strain in May thru mid-June may have been more precautionary than actual structural damage.
      I think he should remain at his current ranking in the prospect system.

      1. “has been hurt” as in the past tense. Not “is hurt” as in the present. I really worry about a pitcher with shoulder issues. If he ends up putting together a fantastic season then he could be number 1.

    2. Not for me; Bohm is still the clear #1 prospect in the system. Bohm is three levels higher (though Stott should probably be at Lakewood), has 19 HR in 2019, and only 64 Ks (versus 50 BB) in 422 AB.

      Guys who are climbing the prospect list include:

      – Josh Stephen (very similar offensive production to Moniak at AA)
      – Kendall Simmons (discussed elsewhere)
      – Johan Rojas
      – Simon Muzziotti (already #12, but should move up some)
      – Kyle Glogoski
      – Logan O’Hoppe
      – Juan Aparicio

      Two prominent guys going in the other direction are Jhailyn Ortiz and JoJo Romero. Both have been very disappointing in 2019.

      1. Bak425, great list! I agree with each player.
        I would add Erik Miller. (Maybe Lindow and possibly Schulze.)

        1. Yeah, I thought about Erik Miller but excluded him because he is already ranked #10 in the MLB Top 30 list for the Phillies’ system.

  9. All of the accolades that Stott gets on here is warranted…but don’t forget that Kendall Simmons is 2 1/2 years younger and is almost outplaying bim.

    1. And right now with a wRC+ of almost 170, which if he qualified would put him 3rd or 4th in the NYPL.

  10. Wow wRC of 170 is unreal, his iso is 588 plus his weight is 230, on drug store scale, obpis is 57 so he should move up

  11. UDFA Tom Sutera could be a find for the Phillies.
    Siena College pitcher was not drafted and the Phillies decided to take a chance on the 6’5 RHP and signed him three weeks ago..
    He pitched today as a starter for Lakewood and could be diamond in the rough.
    A relief pitcher at Siena, Phillies are trying him as a starter…Hector Berrios thinks he could be a starter down the road.

  12. Medina “Top “ Pitching Prospect
    2-4 6.65 ERA in last 10
    Today
    2.0 IP 7R, 3H, 7ER, 2BB and 2HR

    Shut him down, he’s tired hopefully not hurt

    1. I’ve had my doubts about him for a while. I am not a fan based on what I’ve seen so far. He’s more Franklin Kilome than Sixto Sanchez.
