Quinn actually went 0-2 with 2 Ks. There isn’t very much to see here. Except O’Hoppe continues to be the guy who can hit. He seems to be fine with the glove although base stealers are 6 out of 7. Lee Hao Yu is showing some hitting skill too and Guthrie is trying everything to keep his name in the mix for a callup at some point.
i believe you cant judge his throwing out baserunner, Just on stats, if the pitcher are giving guys big jumps, he is helpless,
Cwater is actually 0-4 and the four teams are 4-15. It’s a terrible start up and down the system with very few positives.
Yeah, there are a lot of really bad players in our farm system, especially in AAA (I don’t think there’s one legitimate big league starting pitcher or starting position player on that team and only a few who might become part time players – it’s a wasteland) and AA (O’Hoppe and not much after that except a few relievers – Ortiz is a long shot, although the power and athleticism, I think, are completely real) – a damning conclusion to the MacPhail/Klentak era. In the lower minors the teams, who are most composed of players selected or signed after Johnny Almaraz fell from grace, are much more talented. It also is noteworthy that one of our best prospects from the minors – Bryson Stott – basically skipped AAA, so that’s a bright spot.
And, of course, there’s Mickey Moniak’s spring, which was fairly unexpected (sorry, it’s true), but very welcomed and good news.
To me, the best news with the big league team is that the pitching has been so good. If someone had told you the hitting would be this below par the first week of the season and the team would still be 3-2, I think you’d take that in a heartbeat.
Rojas with two more SBs….7 leads all minor leagues so far.
Hope you are wearing your mask Jim.
Concentrate on Rojas for CF and let Herrera go. Hopefully Moniak gets back soon.
As much as I understand people not wanting Herrera around, we are still very early in the year and neither Vierling nor Moniak is a proven starting (or even platoon) player, so I keep him around – for now.
As far as concentrating on Rojas – he’s in the low minors. If everything goes well for him, he probably comes up at the end of 2023 – there’s a lot of time between now and then.
Id rather Roman Quinn play than Odubel. Seriously tho, MM isnt gonna become anything if he doenst get a chance to play. I wish they gave him the job as soon as hes healthy
Agree 100% DD
First we have to get him off the DL. Is CF jinxed for the Phillies? Every time there is a chance someone will step up, they get injured… and in some cases injured a lot (Quinn).
Denny….I can see Rojas in Reading come later this season, maybe a trip to Arizona in the fall, then LHV to begin next season…if everything goes as planned for him….i.e., health and hitting progression.
Romus, I know you won’t believe this, but I agree!! LOL.
Anyway, I think the Phillies have enough talent internally to figure out the centerfield conundrum, but I doubt Quinn will be part of the answer. As for Odubel, he’s a frustrating player at times – very frustrating – but he’s a bona fide major leaguer, who would be a pretty darn good number 8 or 9 hitter, and those other guys should be given a chance, but they still need to play well enough to take playing time from him.
