Aaron Nola- The Phuture

Aaron Nola's MLB Debut - 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, and 1-2 at the plate.  He threw 59 of his 88 pitches for strikes (67%). Well done kid!

Is help on the way? I sure hope so. All the Phillies minor league teams in the States are doing well, save LHV IronPigs, but they're winning more lately too. Very encouraging things happening in the Phils system!

19 year old Ranger Suarez, currently with Gulf Coast League Phillies, has a 0.65 ERA through his first 6 apperances this season, spanning 27.1 IP and his WHIP sits at 0.69

For his minor league career he's 8-4, 31 G, 19 GS, 130.1 IP, 115 K, 1.52 ERA, and 0.84 WHIP.

Prospect? He's a lefty too.

While Nola is no Greg Maddux, I hope he is no Tyler Cloyd either. Lot of movement on that ball.. And the homerun he gave up was to a pitcher who just put a good swing on a good tailing pitch.

Leigh Valley is 11 games under 500. Meanwhile Reading, Clearwater, Williamsport, and Gulf Coast Phillies are 1st in their divisions and Lakewood in 2nd place. There are a number of legit prospects at each level the exception is AAA Leigh only having a couple and the rest of the roster being AAAA filler. I would think next year that will not be the case and we will see at least 6+ players at each level being promoted to the next higher level. Nola and Franco in the big leagues is just the start.

Bob D- I legitimately excited about the Phils future. If prospects progress quickly, I could see the Phils being competitive in 2017.

This trade deadline has a lot to do with how the future will shape up. If Revere and/or Frenchy are traded, the Aaron Altherr era may begin.

If Papelbon is traded Neifi Ogando may be called up.

Hopefully Harang gets back and can be dealt in August for something.

Hamels possible deal is a big deal. If dealt, he should net some big near MLB ready talent.

Franco, Hernandez, Herrera, and Galvis all look to have a purpose going forward. I'd like to see Galvis moved into a utility role and Herrera 4th outfield, but still useful nonetheless.

GM-Carson said...

Just read a report that the Cubs are trying to center a deal around Starlin Castro to get Hamels. No f'n way! Dude has a sub .600 OPS and is an error machine. Galvis is better and cheaper than him. I would go ape shit if that deal was made.

2017 seems very possible. And, who knows, if all these plans click and we aren't riddled by injuries, 2016 could be a wild-card team... We would need a veteran presence, though, so I still maintain keeping Hamels would be a good thing

Bob D said...

I agree with Andrew, I am fine with Hamels being here in Philly next week and next year. He would look good along with Nola in the rotation. I am also fine with a trade as long as it brings back a great return. Either way I do feel that the minors have a number of great prospects already that are having great years. A pitcher like Hamels would be great to have this year as well as 4 years from now.

2016 could work...back up the Brinks truck fir Hayward, sign Kazmir, move Utley to 1st and finds a catcher to pair with Chooch...
Altherr Revere and Hayward in the OF with Herrera
Utley hernandez Galvis/Crawford and Franco
Chooch in a platoon/tandem role
Hamels, Kazmir, Nola, Morgan, (insert 5th starter here)
Then Giles or (oh no) Papelbon closing...
We'd be competitive
