Most, if not all, of these guys should be back in Clearwater for Instructs on the 27th.

  1. Good for Stott getting his average over 300 at AA. I wonder if he’ll play in the last game. He would seem like a choice for the AFL. Have there been any announcements about who is going?

    1. Considering that Lehigh Valley’s season runs into early October, I would be surprised if he was not promoted for the rest of their games.

    2. No AFL announcements to my knowledge… I would guess by the 1st of the month we should hear some names…

    1. Gotta love the low K numbers for a guy with his size, and in his age 17 season. He’ll be one to watch for next season.

  2. Based on the data on the link Viars has 47 at bats and 12 strike outs that’s 25 percent strike out rate. What would be a good rate? Also did he strike out more in the behind when he first started in pro ball? I know he is 17 would be great to hit on him. Weren’t other teams really interested in him during draft? I remember on draft day there was an article that one of their picks had a lot of interest from other teams was that him????

    1. K% is based on plate appearances rather than at-bats. He had 64 PAs which gives him an 18.8% K-rate.

      From my recollection, Viars was a guy who was rising for some teams heading into draft day so he ended up going higher than a lot of projections had him.

        1. Yes that’s what I had seen. Hopefully they get some players from last couple drafts. The two pitchers Able and Painter look like keepers too. Would love for one of the center fielders to on out too. DD still shaking up the minor league system. It really needed it. Let’s cross out fingers and hope they turn the corner. Would be great and fun to have a strong system again. I think it’s real fun to watch a player go through the system and make it to the bigs. Go Phils. Lol and I may be wrong they are game out of playoffs. Hope they do pull through.
