  1. Lee Hao Yu may be on the move to Jersey soon. He just hits.
    Phillies may have found a gem. When he gets promoted hope he can remain this hot.

    1. I’m really excited about this kid. Looks like Altuve the way the ball jumps off if his bat.

      1. What I like about Yu Lee is that he appears to be a solid fundamental player all around even at just 19 years old.

        There was some questioning the other day about Y. Garcia. As I’ve posted before, in the four games i saw him at Ft Myers he is wiry, used his speed as a weapon, always hustled, made no mental or physical errors, got on base a variety of ways — bunt, line drives, home run. He averaged a stolen base per game prior to Friday night.

        I’d be interested in Jim’s observations as he’s seen Garcia far more often than I have and I saw him in his best series of the season so it might not have been typical.

      2. And Lee at 19 is solidly built…rarely see that at that young age with international guys..

        1. Maybe he becomes a draw for future Far East international signings. I think our biggest drawback is lack of Far East players on the ML roster over the past 30 years. Kids in Korea/Japan/Taiwan aren’t watching Phillies games to see their country’s players. IMO this is a larger disadvantage than being in the east coast the furthest distance from their homeland.

          1. The only east coast teams that seem to draw Asian kids attention are the Yankees and that rare exception, Red Sox with Dice-K
            West coast is where it is at for them.

    2. There’s no doubt that Lee has been one of the few hitting bright spots in the system. The issue I see here is that 2B at JS is supposed to be for Luis Garcia. Yes, I believe Garcia is hurt, but when he comes back, JS is going to have problem. Yes, Lee can also play 3B but I hear his arm may not be good enough and DJ Stewart is there anyways. And you don’t want Garcia or Lee to be the full time DH.

      So unless Lee goes crazy and hits .350 with a .950 OPS, you leave Lee at Clearwater and enjoy the ride. He’ll get to JS when it’s time.

      1. Luis Garcia has done nothing since the GCL in 2018. Just look at his stats. Meanwhile Lee comes out raking from day one. That’s what a real prospect does. No excuse making about cold weather or adjustments to a different league. I know Garcia is only twenty-one but at some point a player actually has to do something, which Garcia has not done. So far he is all hype.

        1. Luis Garcia has a high ceiling so the Phillies will give some leash. However, it won’t last forever and right now, I don’t think the Phillies are giving up on him just yet.

        2. Garcia hit pretty well last year and probably has a lot more defensive value than Lee who I believe is spotty in the field right now. He got off to a bad start this year but it was 9 games. He needs to get healthy first and then we’ll see how he’s progressing as a hitter.

      2. Garcia will be playing mostly SS at JS when he’s healthy, where he played before he was hurt. Martin will bounce around the IF at that time. Lee will stay at CWater and just play for quite a while. He’s new to this country and I’m guessing they’ll just leave him there for now.

      3. Garcia is having his issues at the plate….but he more than likely is the shortstop of the future for the Phillies,
        …..IF he can ever hit, maybe not like his GCL days but he needs to pick it up more from last season’s slash line of 243/.353/.414 between CLW and JS
        Defensively he is considered one of the best, if not the best, in the system.
        But until he can prove it at the plate, he may be the latest version of Arq.. Gamboa.

    1. This was supposed to be Rojas’ breakout year. There was talk that he was going to be more selective at the plate and attack balls in the zone. Instead, the power is completely gone and he’s having his worst year ever. Rojas might be one of those free swinging guys that you hope makes enough contact to stick. Because right now, after 29 games, hard to see where the improvement is.
