  1. I think Plassmeyer can be an internal option for the Phillies to look at for their rotation next season…or at least a 6th or 7th starter.
    Since coming over from the Giants, not sure what went on over there, he has right his ship…54 innings pitched…WHIP of 1.07 with a K/9 of 8.8…..ERA -2.8
    Him, Falter and Lindow can all be lefthanded options behind Ranger.

      1. Jim…..that west coast league use to have that designation or reputation…..I would have to see if the Park Factors for the PCL has been updated.
        I did notice……his BB/9 was high and that could have also been a factor for him. Last night it went up for him to 6 over 4 innings. Hopefully that does not become a problem again for him.

        1. Some of the PCL parks are at high altitude while others are not, so it’s kinda all over the place…

  2. Since 7/24 and in the last 23 games, Baron Ratcliff has been tearing it up at Jersey Shore he has hit 5 homers with 16 RBIs and has gone 20-59 for a .339 average.
    What has changed for him?
    Is he a prospect we should get excited about?

  3. I looked at Gameday for the JS game last evening. just checking for all scores in real time. on Wingrove’s triple, he was thrown out at the plate trying for an inside the parker. I’d like to see him turn into a Mead type prospect from down under.

  4. I hope you are right on that call, Romus. It would be nice for a pitcher from another organization to come to Philly and flip the switch. Too many times it’s the other way around.

    1. ciada….he did pitch well in the SEC a few years ago in his last year at Mizzou, then came out strong in the minors in the Rays and Mariner orgs…then 2020 pandemic, he was shut down it looks like…. and after that it was real shaky for 2021
      I think he has found his rhythm again.

    1. There was no StatCast info last night, but in his last outing he was 92-94 with the fastball, 87-89 with the change-up, and 80-83 with the curveball

    1. Of the two top lefties in the organization, I think Miller (more trade value) eventually gets moved and Lindow emerges as an effective Cole Irvin type…so yes I think he will be protected.

      1. I would bet my house Ethan Lindow is not protected. And I’d bet my second house (if I had one) no team will select him when he’s left available. Not trying to be mean. Lindow just doesn’t fit the profile of pitchers taken in the rule 5 draft. Clubs usually look for hard throwing arms (even if they’re imperfect … i.e. big BB%) they can stash in a BP for a season. That’s not Lindow. They’ll 💯 add Miller to the 40 man. He’d be a lock to get taken unless, as mark suggests above, he’s traded this winter (and I don’t see that will happening).

        1. Hinkie…what Lindow has going on for him…another 5th round selection
          You can’t knock having a Fifth in the dugout..

          1. C’mon, Romus – let’s not bring Danny Ozark and Paul Owens into this discussion 🤣🤣🤣

            1. Hah………
              Of the 16 position players on’s Top 30 Phillies prospects….5 have a Run grade of 60 or above.
              ……Crawford, Boyd, Y. Garcia, Martin and Johan Rojas.
              if all them should make it on one team…talk about speed on the bases and in the field……that team could swipe 200 plus bases in a season.
