  1. Ben Brown, wow!!!!!
    Andrew painter , mick able, griff mcgart, Ben Brown, NUCE!!!!!

  2. Yes, Ben Brown is really trying to force he way into the prospect discussions. Would be nice to have a surprise addition to the system arms brigade.

  3. First time, looooooonnng time. Big fan of these threads, love them, love them. Along with MW Twitter feed best source of Phil’s fans. By far.
    Question…does Brown’s stuff project? I know stats and age for level can be be fool’s gold but geez.

    1. Ben Brown is currently ranked #26 on the Pipeline. After the midseason update, if Brown jumps up to say 10-15, that would be a decent indicator that he’s on the right track. Either way, Brown should be ticketed for Reading fairly soon.

      1. BA has Ben Brown up to #7 on their midseason rankings. 40 control could limit to bullpen.

        1. 40 control? Seriously? If he’s 40, then what is Francisco Morales’ number?

          I’ve been hearing that his secondary stuff is average, now you’re saying that his control is not that great, something is not adding up. His current walk rate of 3 is fine. Normally when you’re wild, your hit rate goes up because you’re leaving too many balls in the zone. He’s only giving up 6.8 hits which again is pretty good. His SO rate of 13.2 is great. Again, you don’t normally get to that number with only the fastball. So his secondaries has to be decent, and it seems like he’s throwing all his pitches for strikes because his walk rate is not terrible.

          He needs to go to Reading to clear this up!
