Clearwater (43-44, 8-14) beat the Bradenton Marauders, 7-6, in a game delayed and shortened by lightening then rain.  Sam Coonrod and Cam Bedrosian made rehab appearances of one inning each.  Both allowed a base runner but no runs scored.  Starlyn Castillo got clobbered again allowing 3 runs in 0.1 inning on on hit and 3 walks.  Sam Jacobsak allowed 2 inherited runners to score and then 2 additional runs in 2.2 innings on one hit and 2 walks.  He struck out seven.  Lee Hao Yu went 3-4 with 3 runs scored and a double.  Marcus Lee Sang went 3-4 with an RBI.  Andrick Nava went 2-4 with a solo HR (3) and 2 RBI.

Rickardo Perez (.396) went 2-3 with a walk and an RBI as the DH in the second game.  Jehisbert Sevilla went 2-3 with an RBI.  Jordan Viars went 1-4 with a double.

At the Complex today I saw at least 11 new faces, young men in “civilian” clothes.  They were draft picks and free agents the Phillies are signing out of this year’s draft class.  New players will arrive through the weekend, and a mini-camp will start early next week.  Signings will be announced when physicals are completed.

I spoke with Jose Pena.  He took a line drive off his head last week that ricocheted into left field for a double.  He was in an excellent mood, suffered no ill effects, and said the slight bump he suffered had already disappeared.  He also said it was no big deal and he is ready to pitch.

I spotted Josh Stephen outside the clubhouse.  He looks great.  He said his eyesight was back to 100% and that he felt fine.  He was getting ready to fly back home.  I asked if we would see him next spring.  He said no.  He had retired.  I asked if I could tell you guys and he said sure, the paperwork was submitted.  I remember Rocco saying that he thought Stephen’s swing was one of the best he had ever seen.  I remember he had a very strong 2019 at Reading and was poised for the 2020 season when it was cancelled.  I’m sure we all wish the young man well in his post baseball career.

DSL Phillies Red (21-12) beat the DSL Cardinals, 9-2.  Luis Gonzalez pitched six innings and gave up 2 runs on seven hits.  He walked none and struck out four.  Jerffson Pena went 2-4 with a HR (2) and 2 RBI.  Jose Colmenarez went 2-3 with a double, HR (1), walk, and 3 RBI.

DSL Phillies White (21-12) won the completion of a suspended game against the DSL Tigers2, 10-9, and lost the second game 5-0.

Game one picked up in the third inning.  Top international free agent William Bergolla made his debut playing second base and went 1-2 with 2 RBI before the game restarted.  The game entered the sixth inning with the Phillies leading 2-1.  Each team scored 4 runs in each remaining half-inning to get to the final score.  Manolfi Jimenez tied the game with a 3-run double.  Jarol Martinez walked off with an RBI single.

The Phillies were no-hit in the second game.  Their only base runner was a seventh-inning walk.  Both games were limited to seven innings.

  1. The compression from the new signees should allow them to move Lee and Sang up to Lakewood. They deserve it. Also, R Perez is so young but I’d like to see what he could do moving over to the CWater team in the stadium.
    Josh Stephen was a nice player but always looked like a long shot as a corner OF. I’m glad his eyes are back to normal and can move forward healthy.

    1. Rickardo Perez has been on a roll at FCL at age 18. It’s good to see an international signing rip it up stateside.

      1. Very encouraging start for Perez, though he could be one of those guys where we wonder if he’ll hit for enough power. Just 1 XBH (a homer) this year and just 3 (all doubles) in 121 ABs last year.

  2. Good luck to Josh Stephen.
    I believe the trio of Mickey Moniak, Josh Stephen and Yankees former number one pick, OFer Blake Rutherford were all southern Cal HSers around the same time and their paths may have crossed at one time or another.

  3. Yemal Flores, may be more than a diamond- in- the- rough….. the Phillies inked him for $1.3M in Jan 2021….he could be a legit top tier prospect soon.
    He does have the physical size to power the ball being over 200 lbs..

  4. Mark Appel pitched a clean inning with 2 Ks.

    And yet the big league club still throws Familia out there

  5. Yeah Dave has to admit he F’d that one up, although hopefully when Conrod returns Familia is history.
