Phillies Affiliates’ Recap (8/14/2021)

Lehigh Valley lost in ten.  Reading split.  Morales won, Crouse probably should have.  Jersey Shore won a 12-inning one-hitter.  They had a no-hitter thru nine.  Clearwater lost.  The FCL Phillies blew an early lead.  And one of the DSL teams beat the other.

Lehigh Valley (40-46) lost to Scranton, 6-5 in ten innings.  Cam Bedrosian (1-2, 3.21) loaded the bases with 2 walks in the tenth inning and brought the game-winner home with a wild pitch.  Rafael Marchan (.200) went 2-4.  Nick Maton (.189) went 0-4 with a walk.  Matt Vierling (.248) went 2-5 with a HR (4) and RBI.

Reading (34-55) split a doubleheader with Akron, winning 7-4 and losing 1-0. 

Game One:  Francisco Morales (3-10, 6.56) pitched five innings and gave up 3 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks.  Colton Eastman (3.75) made his first appearance since June 11th and pitched one scoreless inning with 2 hits, a walk, and 2 strikeouts.  Kyle Dohy (2.73) pitched one inning and gave up a run on a hit and a walk.  He struck out two.  Bryson Stott (.267) went 1-4 with an RBI.  Jhailyn Ortiz (.227) went 1-4.  Josh Stephen (.193) went 1-2 with a walk, HR (7), and 2 RBI.

Game Two:  Hans Crouse (0-1, 0.96) went 4.1 innings and gave up one run on 3 hits and 2 walks.  He struck out six.  Josh Stephen (.199) went 2-3 with a double.  The Phils managed just 2 more hits.

Jersey Shore (40-48) beat Hudson Valley, 2-0 in twelve innings. Tyler McKay (5.12) pitched six, no-hit innings.  Manuel Silva (2.32) followed with three, no-hit innings.  Blake Brown (1-1, 3.66) took over in extras and pitched two innings.  He gave up a hit and a walk.  Runners were gunned down at home plate in each inning.  Mark Potter (9.86) picked up his second save.  The ghost runner advanced to third on a passed ball before Potter struck out the side.

Herbert Iser Tripled home the go ahead run in the twelfth.  He scored on an RBI single by Jose Tortolero.  Iser went 2-5.

Clearwater (39-44)  lost to Tampa, 4-3.  Dylan Castaneda (9.30) pitched four innings.  He gave up 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks.  Both hits were solo HRs.  He struck out seven.  2021 NDFA Alex McKenney (1-1, 2,45) gave up the go ahead run in the eighth ininng.  He walked three in 0.2 innings.  Leonel Aponte (5.79) got the final out and stranded three inherited runners.  Casey Martin (.242) went 2-5 with a double.  #2 pick Ethan Wilson (.267) went went 1-4 with a solo HR his first as a pro.  Johan Rojas (.244) returned from the IL and went 2-4 with 3 stolen bases.  #12 pick TJ Rumfield (.273) went 2-4.  #13 pick Jared Carr (.214) went 1-3.  2021 NDFA Freylin Minyety (.375) went 2-3 with an RBI.

FCL Phillies (11-7) lost to the FCL Tigers West, 10-6 in seven innings.  The Phillies opened a 6-2 lead after two innings on 2 hits and 8 walks but managed just 3 hits, a hit batter, and a walk the rest of the way.

Brendan Bell (3.12) started and gave up a 2-run HR to the third batter he faced.  However, he looked good after that going three innings and giving up just the 2 runs on 3 hits.  He walked no one and struck out five.  #17 pick Alex Garbrick made his professional debut and looked better than his line.  He was the victim of a couple of seeing-eye hits after a leadoff HR and logged one inning, 3 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and a strikeout.  He did well to escape a bases-loaded, no-out jam allowing just one more run.  2021 NDFA Tristan Garnett is a big lefty.  His build reminds me of Rick Mahorn.  Anyway, he pitched 0.2 innings and gave up 3 runs on 2 hits and a walk.  He throws hard on a downward plane and when he misses it is below the zone.  He had a slurvy offspeed pitch that was tough on the batters.  His two outs were strikeouts.  The only solid contact was a double to the centerfield wall.  He left with a runner on who scored under the next pitcher.  Jaylen Smith relieved and allowed an inherited runner to score.  He pitched 1.1 innings and gave up 3 runs (2 ER) on 2 hits and 2 walks.  #15 pick Matt Osterberg pitched the final innings walking one and striking out three.

Marcus Lee Sang opened the home first with an opposite-field home run.  Five walks, a caught stealing, a single by CJ Chatham, and a sac fly by Junior Ortega produced 3 more runs in the first.  Four more walks and a sac fly by Chatham produced 2 more runs in the second.  #3 pick Jordan Viars went 0-2 with 2 walks and an RBI.  He also committed 2 errors at first base.  He missed an easy grounder right to him and dropped a third out throw from shortstop that would have ended an inning and saved a run.  2021 NDFA Anthony Quirion made his professional debut and went 0-1 with a walk.

DSL Phillies Red (12-11) Lost to the DSL Phillies White, 7-6 in ten innings.  Rickardo Perez (.342) entered the game as a pinch hitter in the fourth inning and went 2-2 with a double and a walk.

DSL Phillies White (15-7) beat the DSL Phillies Red, 7-6 in ten innings.  Yemal Flores (.214) started in CF and went 1-3 with a walk and 2 RBI.

      1. Thanks Romus. I was following the FCL games but lost the link to their box scores; do you have that too?

  1. Happy for Tyler Gilbert. A Phillies 6th round pick. Another bad trade by Klentak. Giving up a prospect with really good stats throughout his minor league career for 23 PAs and 3 hits. Klentak was so incompetent.

    1. That was “our” Tyler Gilbert? I didn’t realize it was the same guy. Baseball! A funny game.

    2. Obviously, for better or worse, the return for that trade, Kyle Garlick was not highly valued by his successor!

      1. Yeah. He is really setting the Twins on fire with his 5 homers 10 RBIs and .232 average in 32 games. But he might look good in this Phillies’ lineup. Lol.

    3. Refresh my memory but wasn’t Gilbert strictly a reliever in our system? If so, what irks me more is that nobody within the organization could identify his talent as a starter, let alone Klentak traded him for less than a bag of balls.

  2. Jim, your reporting is always superb but you even outdid yourself with this Report. FANTASTIC. So much information I am going to have to read it a couple times to digest it all. Thanks as always!

  3. Baron Radcliff…..has a very unusual slash…..191/.393/.337
    Not sure I have ever seen the OBP twice the percentage of the BA, and the SLG lower than the OBP…as for his peripherals……an almost absurd BB%=24, and for a power bat a rather usual K%=31

    1. Keep an eye on Micah Yonamine, the overslot high school catcher (now first baseman I guess) drafted late in 2019. He’s hitting .211 for Clearwater with a 30% BB rate and tiny .026 ISO. Probably just small sample goofiness but, 18 BBs and 6 Ks on the season. 1 XBH.

      1. And yet another odd metric base… that made me chuckle.
        Will have to see how his metrics fare in another 100 PAs.
