      1. It’s honestly must see tv. Gives me something to get through the tough losses from the big club recently. Wonder how high up the prospect boards he’s going to continue to fly up this offseason. Could see top 15 overall.

      2. One run in the first on a double and a single but then he put up 6 zeroes. No walks and 9 Ks! Very exciting.

    1. Kind of weird that he got so many strikeouts on that breaking pitch at the top of the zone. Hitters must really be trying to keep up with the fastball and aren’t able to adjust. In all the clips I’ve seen of Painter, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him bury a curveball or slider in the dirt. Not sure how much of that is by design.

        1. It would seem to make him vulnerable to XBHs against major league hitters. I’d like to see him demonstrate an ability to pitch lower in the zone even if they think the high pitches will be a strength. I know “he’s 19, etc, etc” so no big rush.

          1. Maybe. A curve that breaks into top of the zone is often hard to hit solidly. Often gets a take because the hitter assumes it is a ball. But even if a swing, often results in a pop up.

    2. Here’s the crazy thing – in terms of stuff, Abel’s is really just as good and McGarry’s may be better, although McGarry struggles most with his control. What Painter has that the other two don’t quite have is fabulous command of his fastball. And in terms of velocity – as hard as it is to believe they pretty much all sit 96-98 and touch 99. Each and every one of them.

      If you saw any one of their performances in, say 2020, you could conclude that this was the most talented Phillies right-handed pitching prospect you’ve ever seen. They all have that much potential. Kudos to DD for not trading any of them.

  1. Luis Garcia DFA’d. That’s a pretty precipitous drop for a one-time top prospect. I’m sure wouldn’t be claimed in the Rule 5 but someone may grab him off waivers.
