  1. Andrew Painter’s stats for 2022 is on par with Cole Hamels’ ridiculous 2003 season when he had (also as a 19 year old) 1.34 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 3.5 BB, 13.1 SO across 2 levels. I don’t think anybody thought Painter was going to be this dominant this fast. He should stay the rest of the season at JS, but if this is the new Phillies regime, he should be at Reading at the start of next season. Baseball America already has Painter at #38 at midseason, he should be top 30 if he starts Reading as a 20 year old.

  2. Hey Jim, is Painter going through the same backward pitching regimen that you explained the JS coaches were putting Abel through?

    1. I would assume that a similar development scheme would be tailored to fit Painter. And, I don’t think they will use a “one-size-fits-all” approach.

      1. Thanks Jim. Painter is still dominant which made me wonder. It’s encouraging that Preston Mattingly has already made an impact with development. I don’t think they’d have pushed these guys like this in the past. The Rojas jump to Reading is also a move that feels different.

  3. Ortiz staying red hot. He’s only got 1 HR this month but all of his other numbers have trended up. And that’s 6 straight multi-hit games.

  4. Two consecutive good outings from Spencer Howard. Hope he’s turning the corner and wishing him all the best.

  5. Dombrowski gets credit for hiring Mattingly, but who should get well-deserved praise for hiring Barber? If only we had his crew in charge a couple of years earlier!

  6. After Ben Brown’s superb outing this afternoon,
    he now has in his last 54 innings pitched
    …..15 ERs (6 in one game)…..39-hits……10-BBs and 89-Ks.

    On his way to Reading soon.

  7. Sands is on fire when he was in the Yankee organization at the Railriders. Now with the Phillies AAA Iron Pigs, his hot hitting continues. Phillies have to get him into Philadelphia.
