Phillies Affiliates’ Recap (9/09/2021)

Lehigh Valley postponed their game.  Reading cancelled the rest of their last homestand.  Jersey Shore won.  Clearwater lost.  The FCL Phillies had a doubleheader cancelled.  The DSL teams split. Red lost and White won.

Seasons are coming to an end next week.  While Lehigh Valley plays until October 3rd and the DSL teams play until October 2nd, Reading, Jersey Shore, and Clearwater see their seasons end on September 19th.  The FCL season ends on the 18th.

With Reading losing 6 games this week to COVID, a couple pitchers were moved up to Lehigh Valley.  I speculate that the IronPigs roster may see a couple more additions of the types of players who may be able to help the Phillies if needed during the final couple of weeks.  We’ve already seen many pitchers fail and we have a manager who doesn’t trust young players especially those who commit mistakes.

Lehigh Valley (48-60) postponed, rain. 

Reading (44-64) cancelled, COVID tracing New Hampshire.  Per a message on the Reading Phils homepage, the rest of the homestand, the final home games of the season are cancelled.

Jersey Shore (50-59) beat Greensboro, 8-5.  Griff McGarry pitched 4.2 innings and gave up 3 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks.  He struck out eight.  Mark Potter allowed an inherited runner as well as an additional run.  Jonathan Hughes pitched two innings and gave up one run on two hits.  JP Woodward picked up the save with a clean inning.  

The BlueClaws scored single runs in the second and third innings on a solo HR by Jonathan Guzman and a sac fly by DJ Stewart.  They retook the lead with 2 runs in the fifth on a 2-run HR by Johan Rojas, and again in the seventh with 3 runs on an RBI single by Carlos De La Cruz and a 2-run double by Guzman.  They added an insurance run in the eighth on a passed ball.

Rojas went 2-4 with a HBP,  HR, 2 RBI, and 3 SB.  Luis Garcia went 1-4 with a walk and SB.  Stewart went 0-2 with a SF, 2 walks, and RBI.  Guzman went 3-4 with double, HR, and 3 RBI.

Clearwater (48-59) lost to Bradenton, 9-4.  Alex Garbrick pitched four innings and gave up 4runs on 3 hits and one walk.  He struck out three.  Christian McGowan pitched one scoreless inning, gave up one hit, and struck out two.  Rafael Marcano pitched 2.1 innings and gave up 3 runs, 4 hits, 2 walks, and struck out four.  Jason Ruffcorn let an inherited runner score and gave up 2 runs in 1.2 innings on 2 hits and a walk.

The Threshers scored 2 runs in the third inning on a 2-run HR by Kendall Simmons.  They added a run in the fourth on an RBI single by Freylin Minyety.  They tied the game with a run in the seventh on a bases-loaded walk by Minyety.

Minyety went 2-5 with an RBI.  Baron Radcliff went 2-3 with 2 walks.  Simmons went 1-5 with a HR and 2 RBI.  Jared Carr went 0-3 with 2 walks.  TJ Rumfield went 0-2 with 2 walks and an RBI.  Wilfredo Flores went 2-4.

FCL Phillies (22-12) had two games at Tigertown cancelled.

DSL Phillies Red (23-18) lost to the DSL Angels, 8-7.  Rickardo Perez went 2-4.

DSL Phillies White (26-14) beat the DSL Giants Black, 9-2.  Estibenzon Jimenez (1.45) pitched four innings and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks.  He struck out six.  Saul Alcala (4-2, 4.00) pitched four shutout innings, allowed one hit, and struck out six.  Yemal Flores went 0-2 with 3 walks.

  1. Goodbye Corbin Williams, proof that you can’t steal first base. He was our fastest player but he just couldn’t hit.

    1. With Reading’s season virtually over….not sure about their last few games with Binghamton up there……Dohy and Crouse headed to LHV…hopefully Stott and O’Hoope also get sent up…LHV has about 20 games left in their season.

      1. It would make sense but both could go to Arizona instead. They are our closest two potential starting position players other than Bohm in the upper levels. I don’t hold out hope for Haseley or Moniak as being more than 4th OF types.
        Rojas is getting me excited with what he’s done at JS. I love guys who can homer and steal a base in the same game. Garcia also looks like he’s figuring things out. Both are still top 10 guys for us.

        1. Yes they may go to the AFL……but that doesn’t start until mid-October…..the LHV season ends on Oct 3rd….they can still have a week off before reporting out to Arizona.
          Phillies should be aggressive with the pair…especially since they seem to handle the challenges so far.

          I do not know what to make of Haseley or Moniak….more than likely they will have to have a new start in another organization.

          And agree….. Rojas seems to be an exciting player…maybe the Phillies will finally hit on a Latin position stud and add Garcia to that hope

          In the DSL there are quite a few that I like to see how they come around…maybe some will be invited to the FIL.
          Solardo Rodriguez ..Rickardo Perez ..Alfredo Alderete…Fernando Hernandez…Arquedion Muller…Yemil Rosario …Marco Soto ….
          Deivi Cabrera …Yoangel Ramos ,,Leonardo Rondon ….Yemal Flores …Jorge Garcia
          and Ricardo Rosario.
          They happen to be one of the younger ones than most on the two teams

    2. Williams was able to put that speed to use in CF though. He made one of the most spectacular catches of the season this summer in Lakewood.

      Good luck to the kid. With that kind of speed, he could get a second chance with another club.
