The Phillies bolted out to a 6-1-1 record in Grapefruit League games. The play during the games is more important than the scores and victories. More than 30 players from the minor league mini camp have been assigned to the games. Those among them who have gotten playing time, as well as others of their minor league brethren who were among the non-roster invites have acquitted themselves well.
Sunday, a handful of rostered pitchers took part in a simulated scrimmage on Roberts Field. Jake Arrieta pitched to Andrew Knapp. He faced a team that included C Nick Matera, 1B Vito Friscia, 2B Bryson Stottt, SS Luis Garcia, 3B Jose Gomez, LF Jay Bruce, CF Johan Rojas, and RF Josh Stephen. Adonis Medina “relieved” Arrieta at the beginning of the fourth and final inning. His battery mate was Micah Yonamine.
Arrieta pitched 2.1 innings before his third inning was rolled. He gave up one run on 2 hits and 2 walks. Stott and Gomez each had a base hit and a walk. Arrieta was finished after Gomez’ walk.
Medina gave up a run on 2 hits. Luis Garcia had one of the hits.
Adam Morgan, Siranthony Dominguez, and Christopher Sanchez each pitched an inning, facing C Knapp/Yonamine, 1B T.J. Rivera, 2B Kendall Simmons, SS Jonathan Guzman, 3B Dalton Guthrie, Lf Cornelius Randolph, CF Simon Muzziotti, and RF Jhailyn Ortiz. The three outfielders rotated among their positions.
Dominguez gave up hard base hits to Rivera and Guthrie.
It has been a while since I’ve used YouTube. Some things have changed. I was only able to upload half of the videos I took.
