Minor League Stats thru May 1st

The attached files include the current stats of all the players we have in affiliated ball.

Batters are listed by team in OPS order.

Pitchers are listed by team.  The starters are at the top followed by relievers.  Within each grouping, the pitchers are in ERA order.

Interesting prospects with good stats are bold and blue, not so good are bold and red.



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.

  1. Hard to believe that Scott Kingery had 2.5 WAR in 2019. He’s still under contract for one more year.

  2. Eiberson Castellano is a soon-to-be 21-year-old who posted a 1.09 ERA last season in the DSL. He walked 16 and struck out 36 in 33.0 innings.

    He looked very good. I wouldn’t be surprised if he made his way to the Threshers later this season.

  3. I think the Phillies have found a gem in CLW OFer Jadiel Sanchez….of all the players in the org with at least 60 ABs this season so far….he has the lowest K rate at 12.5%…and one of the higher BB rates at 9.7%..while slashing a very respectable .270/.347/.429
    Hope he can keep this up all season.

  4. Some stats that struck me.

    Painter zero ERA and .690 WHIP, 20.25 K0 and 2.81 BB9
    Rodolfo Sanchez, another hard thrower though not as hard, of course: zero ERA and .880 WHIP

    O’Hoppe 13.3 percent BB rate and 14.7 K rate. Not bad for a big young guy.

  5. Not lots of offense yet with JS doing particularly poorly. Lots of disappointing results so far but it’s early obviously. We do have many relievers who are doing well although one bad outing with the few number of outings would make them look bad. Miller and Morales are the two pitchers to keep an eye on with both having a chance to end up in Philly this season. Muzzioti really needs to get healthy and get back on the field. The poor kid has missed a lot of time.

  6. Great analysis Jim. Thanks for putting this together.

    My takeaway, besides Stott and O’Hoppe, our position prospects really have gotten off to a rough start. It is baseball and a long season, so I am not suggesting anything on the prospect status. Just saying the numbers for the position prospects have been really bad.

    On the contrary, the start from our top pitching prospects has been phenomenal. Painter has been simply elite. Very exciting to see him so dominant at 19yo. Abel has been great too. In the pen, Morales and and Miller looks like MLB’ers. Maybe Warren too. I think Gunner may be a breakout candidate this year. I have always been intrigued by him. Not a ToR type pitcher, but he may be a MLB pitcher.

    1. a 5-9 start to May has lifted Hao Yu Lee, he’s slashing .306/.375/.389 for the year. For me, he is one of the more exciting prospects. I don’t underestimate the challenge of coming from a foreign country … he’s excelled from day 1 … in a short stint last year and this year as well.

      1. He’s holding his own and adjusting, which is pretty good for a 19 year old at Clearwater.
