Threshers’ and Affiliates’ Recap – 6/17/2021

There were three, low-scoring games and a rainout last night.  Clearwater was the rainout.  The game will be played on Saturday.  Lehigh Valley lost a one-run game collecting just three hits.  Reading returned to their recent winning ways in a one-run victory.  And, Jersey Shore dropped a one-run game, also managing just three hits.  Mickey Moniak (LHV) hit his eighth HR, Herbert Iser (JS) hit his fourth.  Jake Hernandez (REA) got his fourth save.

Clearwater (19-19) rained out in Dunedin.  The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on the 18th.

Lehigh Valley (19-20) lost to Worcester, 3-2.  The IronPigs tied the game in the seventh only to give a run back in the eighth.

David Parkinson tossed 4.2 innings and gave up 2 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks.  Enyel De Los Santos came in with the bases loaded and stranded all three runners.  He pitched 1.1 innings and allowed a walk and struck out a batter.  Brady Lail pitched 0.2 innings, walked one, struck out two, and left with a runner on base.  Damon Jones stranded the runner and pitched one inning, but gave up the game-winning home run.  David Paulino got the third out.

Mickey Moniak hit a 2-run home run (8) in the seventh inning to tie the game.  He had one of the IronPigs’ three hits going 1-4.  Matt Vierling (1-4) and Ruben Tejada (1-3 with a walk) had the other two hits.

Reading (13-26) beat Harrisburg, 2-1.  The Phils got back on the winning track building a lead while throwing shutout ball for eight innings.

The Phils scored a run in the third inning on Jorge Bonifacio’s RBI single.  They added an important insurance run in the seventh on Daniel Brito’s RBI single.  Brito (.287) went 3-4 with a run scored and an RBI.  McCarthy Tatum went 2-4 with a double.

  1. Moniak has been on fire since being sent back down. I think he is a trade chip if the Phillies stay in the pennant race.

    1. He’s hitting 218, not the definition of on fire. Let’s just say he’s recently been doing better and he’s showing some power.

    2. Who is burning full thrusters…Daniel Brito…..he could make it to LHV next month sometime if he keeps this up.
      A Latin player who does not walk much (6%) (okay so what else is new there),….but K rate is less than 20%, @ 17% so far.
      Another surprise player breaking out after more than a few years of mediocrity.

    3. I’m not sure what you think you’re going to get for Moniak. He has pretty much underperformed his entire minor league career. At best, he’s a reclamation project and you’re not going to get much for that. Remember Mark Appel? Another #1 overall pick and he was essentially a throw in for the deal.

  2. Hendrickson had a great outing, let’s see if he can back it up with another good one next time. On the other hand, Lindow still struggling, even after the demotion.
    Brito was an exciting prospect a few years ago but two bad years followed and we all gave up on him. Now here he is at Reading and he’s hitting really well after a slow start. This kid was thought to be a 300 hitter type before his poor seasons. My guess, having not seen him this year, is that he’s gotten much stronger. Let’s hope he keeps it up, even if it’s just to make himself a trade piece.

    1. Excuse me, Brito had 3 bad years in a row, not 2. However he’s still just 23 at AA

  3. As much as you would like to believe that former prospects getting hot (or turning the corner) and becoming trade chips, EVERY team in baseball has guys like that. Most of those guys are not going anywhere. Even failed prospects for failed prospects trades (i.e. Golson for Mayberry) don’t normally work out.

  4. I don’t see Moniak as a much of a trade chip but at least he’s trending upwards in terms of his ops,

    April – 25 AB – .120/.214/.240/.454
    May – 75 AB – .200/.287/.373/.661
    June – 58 AB – .241/.274/.534/.809

    In his last 28 days, 83 AB – .253/.308/.518/.826, he’s 21 for 83 with 6 HR, 2 doubles, 1 triple.

  5. What kind of velocity does Hendrickson normally have with his FB? He was throwing it around 88-89 in the 4th & 5th.
