2016 Spring Training, March 8-10

I spent Tuesday and Wednesday at Bright House watching the Phillies beat Pittsburgh and Baltimore.  They are 7-3 with 2 ties (against Toronto and Detroit).  They also have 2 wins against the Yankees and a second win over the Pirates.  Time to upgrade those win predictions for 2016!

Phuture Phillies 2016 Reader Top 30 #18

Adonis Medina was selected the Readers’ Poll 17th prospect.  He received 165 of 380 votes (43%).  He was a runaway victor over second-place finisher Jimmy Cordero.

The Phillies signed Medina to a minor league contract as an international free agent on May 29, 2014 at the age of 17.   Continue reading Phuture Phillies 2016 Reader Top 30 #18

Florida Instructional League – Game #7; 10/7/2015

Wednesday the Phillies played the Blue Jays at Bright House Field.  The comfortable surroundings made up a little for yet another game with no offense.  The pattern of ineffectiveness is beginning to be a little concerning.  The Phillies managed five hits, only one of which was hit hard – Greg Pickett’s line drive single in the ninth inning.  The only other hard hit ball was a line drive off the bat of Juan Luis in the first inning that was speared by the second baseman.

Florida Instructional League; Intrasquad Game – 10/8/2014

Well, the Instructional League is winding down. Only a couple of scouts were on hand for the final intrasquad game on Wednesday. Two Phillies’ teams played six innings to a 2-1 conclusion. I don’t have velocities and didn’t bother to count pitches. Instead, here are a few observations. Continue reading Florida Instructional League; Intrasquad Game – 10/8/2014

Florida Instructional League, Intrasquad Game – 10/1/2014

We’re at the tail end of the rainy season in Florida.  Tuesday’s game was played at an earlier time and over before I got to the stadium.  Today’s intrasquad game started at 1:00pm.  Phils1 played Phils2.  The game was called after 6 innings.  Phils 2 made up an early 3-0 deficit to win 10-3.  The pitching was a little sketchy, but some of the guys threw well.  Ismael Cabrera started for Phils2 and Carlos Indriago started for Phils1.  Each threw 2 innings. Continue reading Florida Instructional League, Intrasquad Game – 10/1/2014

Florida Instructional League – Adam Morgan Edition; 9/24/2014

In Florida, Wednesday is Camp Day. After morning workouts, the players head over to Bright House Field for an intrasquad game. Today, a little past 12:30pm, Adam Morgan started a game for the first time since he was shut down in 2013.

Intrasquad games are a pain to score. The line ups are fluid, innings can start with runners on base, innings can last more or less than 3 outs, and there are double the number of pitchers to chart. I can provide a lot of detail on Morgan and some sketchy highlights on the rest of the game. Continue reading Florida Instructional League – Adam Morgan Edition; 9/24/2014
