Trip Through the Minors

Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs:
AAA 29-45
*Phillies top prospect Domonic Brown went 1-4 in his Triple-A debut after posting great stats in Double-A Reading: .318/.993, 50 r, 16 2b, 3 3b, 15 hr, 47 rbi, and 12 sb.

*John Mayberry Jr. has slumped of late seeing his average dip to .260.

*Thirdbaseman Cody Ransom leads the team with 16 homeruns, but is only batting .240.

*With Nelson Figueroa and Mike Zagurski's recent promotions, that leaves only Scott Mathieson (2.35 ERA, 12 sv) and Nate Bump (6-4, 2.62 ERA) as the pitchers worth mentioning.

Reading Phillies:

AA 34-38
*Firstbaseman Matthew Rizzotti has been amazing since his promotion to Double-A. He's batting .363/1.104 with 13 2b, 10 hr, 22 r, 33 rbi in 39 games. This is after batting .358 in 31 Single-A games this year.

*Thirdbaseman Tagg Bozied is having a solid 2010 campaign- .295/.940, 36 r, 19 2b, 13 hr, 55 rbi. Too bad he's already 30 years old.

*Pitching has been abysmal in Reading, with prospects Yohan Flande, Vance Worley, Phillippe Aumont, Michael Schwimer, and Drew Naylor all not performing as expected.

Clearwater Threshers:
High-A 38-34
*Secondbaseman Harold Garcia is ripping up since getting healthy, batting .336/.868 with 22 r, 14 xbh, 27 rbi, and 12 sb in 36 games.

*Thirdbaseman Cody Overbeck earned a promotion to Reading with this line- .302/.934, 31 r, 19 2b, 11 hr, and 41 rbi.

*Outfielder Anthony Gose has stolen 25 bases, but has also been caught 20 times.

*Pitching staff standouts include Jesus Sanchez (6-4, 3.05 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) and Justin De Fratus (2-0, 2.04 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, 38 k in 35.1 ip, 12 sv).

Lakewood BlueClaws:

Mid-A 44-28
*Firstbaseman Jonathan Singleton is a beast! .362/1.095, 28 r, 13 2b, 9 hr, 41 rbi, 5 sb in only 39 games. Oh, and he's only 18.

*19 year old shortstop Jonathan Villar has 27 sb and is batting .280.

*Darin Ruf was Lakewood's Firstbaseman before Singleton, and he was promoted to Clearwater and has batted .306/.883, 40 r, 16 2b, 3 3b, 7 hr, 33 rbi, and 4 sb between both stops.

*The BlueClaws pitching staff is chock full of awesomeness. Matthew Way (6-4, 3.49 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 75 k in 77.1 ip) and Jarred Cosart (7-2, 3.44 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 77 k in 70.2 ip) spearhead the starting rotation. Then you have relievers Luke Wertz (0.31 ERA, 0.55 WHIP), Joshua Zeid (2.93 ERA, 7 sv), Jordan Ellis (2.68 ERA, 7 sv), and Ebelin Lugo (1.10 ERA, 2 sv) holding down the lead.

Williamsport Crosscutters:

Short-Season A 5-3
*17 year old outfielder Domingo Santana struggled at Lakewood- .182/.619, but has been on fire since joining the Crosscutters- .385/1.169.

*Starting pitchers Kevin Angelle (0.64 ERA) and Eric Pettis (0.90 ERA) have started 2 games apiece.

How many homeruns does Cole give up today?

Cole Hamels is a vagina.

nice update on the minors. Singleton looks like the real thing. Hopefully he learns the OF

Jay Ballz said...

"The Boss" Jonathan Singleton is 18 yrs old and Villar, who hit a HR in the SAL all-star game this week, is just 19. You are off on both guys' ages.

That whole Lakewood team is fun to watch. They have many good prospects on that team right now. SP Matt Way should be headed to Clearwater soon.

Jay Ballz said...

Also...santana is 17.

GM-Carson said...

Thanks Jay Ballz, this is what happens when I count on my fingers for their age. I counted 2010 as a year, but they haven't had a bday in 2010 yet.
