Happy Mother's Day! May the Phillies bring all the lovely ladies a win on this beautiful spring day.
*JP Crawford began his 2015 season this past week with Clearwater and he's killed it in his first 4 games (.533/1.400). It won't be long before one of the top rated prospects in the game is promoted to Reading.
*The Phillies might have a late bloomer in the system. Art Charles is a 24 year old first baseman, currently mashing in Reading. Over 6 minor league seasons, he's a .245/.799 batter, so he's not been horrible, but clearly isn't lighting the world on fire either. However, he's found his groove in 2015 (.373/1.179). He came to Phils via the Michael Schwimer trade with Toronto.
*I think it's time to call-up Maikel Franco and plug him in at 3rd base permanently. Cody Asche is in a tailspin at the plate and Franco is booming with the bat at Lehigh Valley (.339/.891).
*Upon Franco's promotion a roster move will need to be made and I nominate Grady Sizemore hitting the waiver wire, because he sure as hell isn't hitting anything else.
