I went to the Complex on Monday to watch a scrimmage against the Yankees. The game ended 4-4, but our guys had an uneven day.
Ofreidy Gomez started and pitched one strong inning. Gomez was signed as a free agent last month and has upper minors experience. He struck out the side in his inning of work.
Eiberson Castellano followed with three strong innings. He allowed a leadoff double and then hit a batter. They both advanced on a fly ball to deep CF. Castellano struck out the next two batters to escape the inning without allowing a run. He continued to retire the next six batters in order, too. He struck out 4 batters total.
Manuel Urias was next and had a rough time. After retiring the first batter, he gave up 3 successive doubles, a strikeout, and an RBI single. He picked off the runner. He gave up a walk and 2 hits, one a solo HR. He struck out 3 batters in three innings.
In the eighth, Christopher Soriano retired the side in order with a strikeout. Alex McKenney pitched the ninth and gave up a single and a walk but retired batters on a double play and an inning-ending strikeout.
The Phillies were one-hit through eight innings. They went meekly with a single by Uziel Viloria, 3 walks, a fielding error, 12 Ks, and 2 double plays.
The hitters came alive in the bottom of the ninth. Freddy Francisco led off with a walk. Gavin Tonkel lined a one-out single to left. Viloria followed with a 3-run HR to right off the scoreboard. Erick Brito walked with two out and Yemal Flores lined an RBI double down the left-field line that tailed into the corner. As Brito crossed the plate, the Yankees rolled the inning.
Scott Kingery played the field for three innings and batted twice. It’s my understanding that playing the field is the final test before he joins Lehigh Valley. I expect he’ll be required to play nine innings on back-to-back days before being activated.
It appears the player limit of 180 players in the stateside minors went into effect with the start of the minor league season. That explains why all the 60-day IL transactions that have been posted recently are dated April 8th.
The players on the Phillies’ active roster, players on any 60-man IL, and players on a restricted list do NOT count. My tally is 177 or thereabouts. It’s difficult to say for sure with the Complex team’s roster not up-to-date or transactions not posting, yet.
One thing’s for sure. The Phillies do not have enough players to field two Complex teams. Even one team looks to be a little difficult.
