  1. The two Phillies teams in the DSL are a combined 74-40.
    They may not have too many hitters high on the leader boards in the league but their pitching has been very good.
    Five of their pitchers are among leaders in the league..
    Maxwell Hernandez…RHP…19
    Danyony Pulido…RHP…19
    Ezequiel Ventura…RHP…20
    Luis Gonzalez…RHP…17
    Jeffrey German…RHP…17

  2. Once the FCL season is over on Tuesday, will anybody be bumped up to Clearwater to finish their season?

      1. Murray…..the visa concern would apply to the DSL, the Dom. Republic to the states…….FCL to CLW is transparent at the Complex..

  3. Time to acknowledge that Drew Baker has really taken off, belatedly following in the footsteps of Andrew Schultz.

    First 22.2 IP this year: 24 Ks, 18 BBs

    Last 17 IP: 33 Ks, 5 BBs

      1. As concerned as I am about how we are drafting and developing hitters, you cannot say enough good things about how we are drafting and developing pitchers. I’ve never seen anything like this with the Phillies.

  4. Looks like Bohm’s power might be arriving. I love that each was to a different field

  5. Starting to watch Painter on, man, he is a giant on the mound. He’s so big, the fastball is coming on a downward plane. The fastball is exploding out of his hand. His motion is easy and repeatable. And when he drops a curve, and it’s a good pitch that he can command, hitters are frozen. That curve could be plus. His slider is a work in progress. And it looks like he could even add on more weight which is crazy. No joke, Painter could be on a ML bullpen right now.

    How many seasons has Ortiz been in the system? He’s just swinging at high strikes, there’s limited plate discipline.

    1. Painter has a big arm, but he needs the innings. When he gets out of whack, usually when there are men on base, he leaves his fastball and slider up. His fastball is so overpowering, they force him to throw his slider more, especially against RH hitters. He needs to tighten up his slider. Once that happens, he’ll be ready for the bigs.

  6. Johan Rojas likes to swing. If it’s anywhere near the zone, he’s swinging. He’s one guy who’s not taking pitches like Rhys.

    1. Rojas falls right in line, like most all Latin players…they are free swingers….about the only I can recall who took more pitches than any other Latin player was Bobby Abreu.
