  1. Ummm is this really happening with Kingery!? Has anyone had eyes on him? This would be one heckuva story. Even if it meant him being thrown into a trade package. Back to his home state D Backs for MAdBum or Michael Kelly

  2. There has got to be real ballplayer in Scott Kingery somewhere. What Phillies fan wouldn’t love to see that realized.

    1. Kingery showed us in the past what kind of ballplayer he can be; no reason to think that the ability disappeared.

  3. Kingery getting hot right as the team adds another speedy, light-hitting utility infielder is pretty ironic. Still want to see Maton back in the Show somehow. Excited to see what Carlos De La Cruz can do in Reading – is he officially more interesting that J. Ortiz?

    1. De La Cruz is definitely interesting though I would temper the enthusiasm a bit. K rate of 31.1% is a huge improvement for Carlos but still pretty high. Ortiz is at 32.9% so not any better, but in AA and AA is a huge jump. I am just glad that he gets a chance to perform at a higher level when he really looked close to being released after last season.

  4. Happy to see the 3 noted promotions. I expected the Brown move but am equally pleased with the other two moves.
    I was very concerned about Muzzioti not being able to reach his potential after so much lost time but he had a great week, finally. He homered in back to back games unexpectedly and yesterday had 4 hits so I’m hoping that he’s finally found his timing again. If he can have a big month of August and then do well in the Arizona league he’ll have a chance to get back on the team’s radar. He’s already on the 40.

    1. And those homers were away- so not the Reading effect. He had more homers in July than in any previous year f his career. This will be very interesting to watch as it develops.

  5. Very happy for De La Cruz. He has certainly put his time
    in and is being rewarded for production. So are the other two. It is good for all the minor league kids when they see production is rewarded.

  6. Scott Kingery has a $8M salary for 2023 and a $13M club option ($1M buyout) for 2024.

    As much as we want to see the resurgence of Kingery, he’s likely gone after he gets bought out.

    KIngery should be in ST, but he’s fighting an uphill battle just to make the roster. He has to be behind Maton and Sosa. Kingery needed to go lights out in Lehigh just to be back on the radar and he hasn’t done that, even with this hot streak.

  7. Its great to see De La Cruz get the opportunity. He is a BIG strong kid and will hit monster shots at the hitter friendly ballpark in Reading.

    What do you guys think about this Lee Sang kid? Doing some research, in less AB than Rojas had last year in low A, he is has more HRs, a higher AVG , slugging and OBP. He has 18 SB to Rojas 25, 37 RBIs to Rojas 38 and scored 45 runs to Rojas 51 in slightly less low A AB. He does seem to strikes out way too much though. He is 21 until early next year and Rojas turns 22 next month Last year Rojas was moved to high A with 17 games left in the season and Lee Sang could have 37 games to go in high A. He is now one of the 4th youngest prospects at high A for the Phillies.(all the OF have 1999 birth year compared to his 2001 birth year). Is he regarded in organization as the type of prospect Rojas is/was (Rojas birth year is 2000) or is he just filling in De La Cruz roster spot?
