Minor League Update (Week of 7/3 -7/9)

AAA Scranton-WB

  • Michael Bourn: 10-23, 3 3B, 4 RBI, 3 R, 2 BB, HBP, 3 SB (3), 5 K, E (1)
  • Josh Kroeger: 7-26, HR, 3 2B, 2 RBI, R, BB, 3 K
  • Danny Sandoval: 10-30, 2B, RBI, 4 R, BB, 2 K, CS (1)
  • Brennan King: 9-28, 2 HR, 2B, 6 RBI, 5 R, 2 BB, 6 K, E (9)
  • Carlos Ruiz: 1-6, RBI, R (PHILLIES)
  • Chris Roberson: 3-6, 2 R, SB (15), 2 K, E (4) (PHILLIES)
  • Mike Lieberthal: 4-6, 2B, 2 RBI, 3 R, HBP
Bourn is now hitting a robust .435/.500/.696 since his promotion to AAA...sure, he has only had 23 at bats so far, but it's still something...Mike Lieberthal performed quite well in his two rehab starts, he should be ready to return to the Phillies after the All-Star break...
  • Gavin Floyd: 6 IP 10 H 7 ER 5 BB 1 K
  • Gavin Floyd: 6 IP 4 H 3 R 1 ER 3 BB 5 K
  • Eude Brito (W, 7-5): 7 IP 3 H 1 ER 0 BB 5 K
  • Eude Brito (W, 8-5): 9 IP 5 H 0 ER 1 BB 7 K
  • Seung Lee (2 W, L, 6-7): 4.1 IP 6 H 5 ER 5 BB 3 K
  • Clay Condrey: 2.2 IP 6 H 2 ER 1 BB 2 K
  • Brian Sanches (2 S, 13): 3.1 IP 2 H 0 ER 1 BB 5 K
  • Ryan Cameron: 1 IP 1 H 0 ER 1 BB 2 K
  • Travis Minix: 3 IP 1 H 0 ER 0 BB 0 K
Gavin Floyd - one terrible start, one solid start...the pattern continues...Eude Brito - two fantastic starts...Brian Sanches continues to dominate out of the Red Baron bullpen (while Rick White continues to do something the Phillies like enough to keep him in the majors...)

AA Reading

  • Michael Bourn: 1-5, RBI, 2 R, SB (30), K (SCRANTON)
  • Jason Jaramillo: 6-25, HR, 4 RBI, 5 R, 4 BB, 5 K, E (5)
  • Angel Chavez: 6-24, 3B, 3 RBI, 7 R, 3 BB, SB (6), 3 K, E (10)
This is the worst of times for Reading Phillies fans...only two "prospects" in the everyday lineup (and both guys profile best as big league backups at this point in time)
  • Zack Segovia (W, 5-4): 9 IP 7 H 0 ER 3 BB 5 K
  • Zack Segovia (W, 6-4): 5 IP 6 H 4 ER 3 BB 2 K
  • J.A. Happ (W, 1-1): 6 IP 4 H 2 ER 6 BB 6 K
  • Gio Gonzalez (L, 4-9): 5 IP 6 H 3 ER 2 BB 3 K
  • Nick Evangelista (W, 3-0): 1.2 IP 2 H 1 R 0 ER 0 BB 2 K
Mixed results this week out of the R-Phils starting staff...Nick Evangelista may soon get a well deserved promotion to Scranton (no inside info on my part, just pure speculation)...

High A Clearwater

  • Mike Costanzo: 7-22, HR, 2B, 4 RBI, 4 R, 6 BB, 5 K, CS (1), 3 E (15)
  • Brad Harman: 8-25, RBI, 4 R, 7 K
  • Bryan Hansen: 7-19, 2 2B, 4 RBI, R, 2 BB, 2 K
  • Tuffy Gosewisch: 3-14, HR, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R, BB, 3 K
  • Tim Moss: 4-22, 5 RBI, 6 R, 6 BB, 3 SB (10), 7 K, CS (2), E (2)
Good weeks for Costanzo, Harman, and Hansen...I hope Tim Moss invested a good bit of that $440,000 signing bonus he received in 2003...
  • Derek Griffith (W, 5-6): 7 IP 4 H 0 ER 2 BB 6 K
  • Andrew Baldwin (W, 5-6): 8 IP 7 H 5 R 3 ER 1 BB 3 K
  • Andrew Baldwin (W, 6-6): 7.1 IP 10 H 3 ER 1 BB 3 K
  • Kyle Kendrick (W, 3-4): 7 IP 8 H 3 ER 3 BB 1 K
  • Julio De La Cruz: 3.1 IP 2 H 4 R 2 ER 4 BB 6 K
Derek Griffith and Andrew Baldwin are two very under the radar pitchers in this system, but both guys have performed admirably when given the chance. There is little chance either guy ever becomes much more than a league average big league pitcher, but that's not quite the insult that it may come across as - the more Griffiths and Baldwins you have, the less of the Rick Whites of the world you need to spend money on...

Low A Lakewood

  • Greg Golson: 6-25, HR, 2B, RBI, 4 R, HBP, 2 BB, 3 SB (17), 6 K, OF assist
  • Welinson Baez: 11-24, 6 2B, 5 RBI, 3 R, BB, HBP, SB (2), 9 K, E (23)
  • Lou Marson: 5-16, HR, 3 B, 4 RBI, 4 R, 6 BB, SB (2), 4 K, E (9)
  • Jeremy Slayden: 8-27, HR, 5 2B, 15 RBI, 4 R, HBP, 4 K, OF assist
  • Clay Harris: 7-21, 2 2B, 5 RBI, 7 R, 8 BB, HBP, 4 K, CS (1)
Golson took a tiny step back this week after his impressive Minor League Player of the Month performance of June...great weeks for Welinson Baez and Clay Harris...
  • Josh Outman (W, 6-5): 7 IP 3 H 2 ER 3 BB 7 K
  • Josh Outman (W, 7-5): 5 IP 3 H 3 ER 5 BB 6 K
  • Justin Blaine: 5 IP 6 H 2 ER 4 BB 2 K

  • 3B Cody Montgomery (16th Round): 1-16, RBI, BB, HBP, 5 K, CS (1), 4 E (5)
  • OF Jay Miller (17th Round): 2-26, RBI, 2 R, HBP, 6 K, OF assist
  • OF Jacob Dempsey (21st Round): 4-15, HR, 2B, 4 RBI, 2 R, 3 K, BB
  • C Shawn McGill (23rd Round): 2-7, 2 RBI, 2 R, BB, 2 K, E (1)
  • RF/1B Doug Morales: 2-6, 2 R, 3 BB, CS (1)
  • C/1B/3B Tim Kennelly: 6-17, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 4 R, 2 BB, SB (1), 2 K, PB (1), 2 E (7)
  • C Joel Naughton: 1-7
Tons of names and numbers to sort through here...Jason Donald had a smashing week, I'm wasn't thrilled with his selection in the draft this year but am very hopeful that he'll continue to prove me wrong...Nice week for Tim Kennelly as well...
  • Daniel Brauer (6th Round): 4 IP 2 H 1 R 0 ER 1 BB 4 K
  • Daniel Brauer: 5 IP 3 H 2 R 1 ER 2 BB 3 K
  • Andrew Cruse (9th Round): 4 IP 3 H 3 R 0 ER 2 BB 1 K
  • Sam Walls (10th Round): 3 IP 4 H 1 R 0 ER 0 BB 0 K
  • Ben Pfinsgraff (22nd Round): 5.1 IP 3 H 1 ER 1 BB 8 K
  • Will Savage (26th Round): 2.2 IP 0 H 0 ER 0 BB 2 K
  • Edgar Garcia: 9 IP 6 H 1 ER 0 BB 7 K
Daniel Brauer and rising star Edgar Garcia are beginning to establish themselves as the cream of the Muckdog rotation...

Rookie: GCL Phillies

  • SS Adrian Cardenas (Supplemental 1st Round): 4-20, RBI, R, 3 K, 2 E (5)
  • CF D’Arby Myers (4th Round): 0-8, 2 K
  • OF Terrance Warren (8th Round): 4-18, 2B, RBI, 2 R, 3 BB, 4 K, E (2), OF assist
  • OF Darin McDonald (12th Round): 1-12, R, SB (3), BB, 3 K, E (2), 2 OF assist
  • OF Dominic Brown (20th Round): 0-13, 2 RBI, SB (3), 3 BB, 6 K, CS (1)
  • C Michael Fuentes (29th Round): 1-3, PB (1)
  • 2B/3B Michael Deveaux (33rd Round): 4-13, R, 3 BB, 2 K

  • 1B Michael Durant: 1-6, R, 4 K
  • SS/3B Derrick Mitchell: 2-10, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 2 K, 3 E (3)
Awful week for the GCL Phils bats...
  • Matt Olson: 5 IP 4 H 1 ER 2 BB 2 K
  • Matt Olson: 3.1 IP 9 H 6 R 5 ER 2 BB 2 K
  • Michael Dubee (18th Round): 4 IP 4 H 0 ER 0 BB 1 K
  • Robert Roth (19th Round): 4 IP 2 H 1 R 0 ER 4 BB 2 K
  • Antonio Bastardo: 4.1 IP 3 H 4 ER 5 BB 8 K
  • Jarrod Freeman (11th Round): 3.2 IP 3 H 2 R 0 ER 0 BB 4 K
Dubee, Roth, and Freeman were all later round selections, but should not be taken lightly as prospects...any one of the aforementioned arms could have been taken 5 rounds earlier if all had broken right for them...

As a frequent guest of the Lakewood Blue Claws... I must say they stink. Great stadium, nice atmosphere... but the team never wins. It doesn't mean there aren't decent players in the system... but it does beg the question "just how many?"

I read that Marcus Hayes thing at the pool today...5 minutes I'll never have back. Hayes is a no-nothing know-it-all if there ever was one.
