  1. Chris Cornelius had a great debut at Reading last night at SS 3-4. Also Derrick Hall has been hot since there was talk or a demotion or release a couple weeks back.

  2. Mitch Edwards…another big Aussie, made a good debut for Clearwater as a replacement for the departed Abrahan Gutierrez..

  3. Great outing for Hans Crouse, and can we possibly get SerAnthony back for September? It is great to have him back, even throwing 1 inning.

  4. Any idea of when/if we’re going to see any 2021 draftees? I’d imagine the young HS guys might not see action beyond instructs, but college players like Ethan Wilson and Griff McGarry might benefit from live play.

    1. McCarry pitched last night for Clearwater.
      19 pitchers 9 strikes got one out and fave up one run.

      1. LMAO totally missed that. Thanks Denny and apologies Jim for skimming the recap 🙂

    1. Hah…..he will probably sign with another team come Nov.
      I think he may qualify as a Rule 55 free agent and look for a fresh start.
      Usually 7 years in the minor league system qualifies…..but as a college draftee it may be shorter.

      1. Reminds me of Belushi in Animal House….”7 years of minor league ball down the drain!”

        1. Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to get to the majors. I think Phillues are going to change their motto under DD.

    1. I’m watching Hans’ start now. In the first inning he was sitting 95, 96. So he’s not a soft tosser by any means.

      He has a weird delivery. He short arms the ball and throws 5/6 (not over the top and not 3/4) in a weird slinging delivery that results in a lot of lateral movement. His fastball appears to be above average. His change-up flashes plus and the curve or slider is above average. You can tell he’s working a lot of breaking ball movement and command, but he’s pretty far along.

      He doesn’t appear to have TOR potential right now, but he’s still developing. If you told me he would end up being a better major league pitcher than Spencer Howard, it would not be hard to believe. A Howard who can retain his velocity into 5 or 6 innings has a higher ceiling, but Crouse does not appear to have those velocity issues and there’s a lot to like.

      1. If you had to compare him to any current Phillies’ pitcher, the closest comparison would be Eflin, but Crouse throws harder and is more of a traditional power pitcher than Eflin and obviously doesn’t have the same level of command as an established major league pitcher like Eflin.

        1. Honestly, I’m pretty shocked that they got a prospect in return like Crouse and two very useful major league pitchers in areas of desperate need. It’s looking like a hell of a trade.

          1. Crouse was a good get by Dave…..though understand, reading some of the Ranger writers…..lefty Cole Raglan was the other arm the Phillies may have been interested in.

  5. Would like to find a Rangers fan website to keep track of Howard and read Texan fans comments. While I am sure there is nothing out there like the quality of the Phuture Phillies website, does anyone have a recommendation?

      1. They’re very high on him

        “ Nevertheless, you could see why Howard has been highly thought of as a prospect and why the Rangers made him a target at the deadline. Howard’s stuff flashed plus throughout his limited 45-pitch outing and his fastball velo was in the 94-95 range (though dropping to 92 when he ran into trouble in the third).”
