  1. Jim do you like Yhoswar? We seem to like Venezuela center fielders that don’t profile to have much of a hit tool….

    I know he was interesting because the Braves lost him when they had to fire Coppola for some underhanded signings.

    1. DMAR…….I believe you are mixing up Latin kids with past Brave wrong-doings.
      Phillies grabbed Abrahan Guiterrez, the catcher from the Brave’s org in that instance…..and Simon Muzziotti from the Sox due to their ill-advised actions in the international market
      Yhoswar Garcia had an age discrepancy that delayed his arrival into the Phillies org.

  2. Matera would be a fun story if he wasn’t 25. I hope Wilson is just off to a slow start but wow our High A club has supposedly two of our best prospects and they are really off to bad starts.

    Luis Garcia can’t seem to find his offensive game. For a small guy he K’s way too much.

    Rojas despite his 222 avg is sporting a 364 OBP 8 BBs to only 6Ks.

  3. Jadiel Sanchez is getting me excited about him. He’s only 20 and had a good year last year too. He’s hitting now in the middle of the order. Jim – how does he look in the OF? LF only?

    1. He’s an interesting case. Not sure why he’s not in the Phillies top 30. Perhaps his lack of ABs are holding him back? Anyways, if he plays a full season and slugs 20 HR, we might have something here.

      1. He’s playing mostly RF and batting 4th so that’s really good. He’s a 12th rd pick from PR a few years back and started his career slowly but he hit well at CWater last year after a late start and he’s hitting well now. Not many at bats yet though so he has to keep it up through May at least to get to JS.

        1. Over the next 2 or 3 off-seasons he should continue to play in the PRWL and get his roughly 75/100 PAs. That cannot hurt him since that league does have some quality skilled pitchers in it during the winter.

          He is also a switch-hitter. That can be a real challenge and a grind trying to perfect your swing from two sides. Hopefully he can make it happen…many decide to junk it and go with their dominant side.

  4. Any update on Brett Schulze’s rehab process? Thought he showed potential last time he played.
