  1. Morales with a great first AAA outing but he really needs to cut down on the walks if he wants to progress. Congrats to Stott on his first AAA homer.
    Are some of these DSL guys legit prospects? Brito and Urias put up great numbers. Are they still young?

      1. Thanks, 20 in the DSL isn’t great. We can’t count on him but with that control, you never know. All these kids lost a season obviously so they have to fast track if they want a shot before they’re too old.

        1. Yeah…losing last season’s developmental regiment set back virtually all the minor leaguers….I guess except for those assigned to the MLB Alternate Sites.
          In Brito;s case…if he can pick it up where he leaves off this season in the FSL, he could get the quick promo to CLW and maybe even JS….he could be back on ‘schedule’ so to speak.

          Look at Stott this year….if you count his major/minor league camp at the Complex in Clearwater….he hit every minor league city in the Phillies org….in a normal year that would be crazy. Butthye decided to challenge him and it seem to turn out well for him…next is the AFL and perhaps even Australia in January

        2. Murray, I think I saw that Ranger Suarez is 26 almost 27, meaning, what he was 25 when he started pitching for the MLB club?

            1. Thanks, Murray and Handzus for the true numbers on Ranger’s age! Still, it might give hope that someone who is 20 years old in the DSL might be a positive force in the major leagues, doesn’t it?

            2. He was 16 when he first pitched in the VSL but in his third season, he issued just one walk in 80.2 innings! IIRC he was only throwing 86-88 back then and his fastball ticked up a few notches subsequently.

      2. I have a feeling- without doing the necessary research- that aside from the lost season last year the limit on number of players allowed on the stateside rosters has kept some kids back in the DR longer than usual. Agree that Urias had a great season in 2019 and normally should have been in the GCL in 2020.

        1. Yes…forgot about that org size limitation that MLB enacted when they did the minor league contraction..
          That could be the primary reason why many kids have been kept at the DR academies for an additional longer period of time.
