Adam Loewen takes Hinojosa's spot in pen. He has 60 K's in 46 innings with 10 saves and 2.15 ERA. Could be an interesting opportunity for him. Danks was also sent down for Utley.

Knapp and Crawford in AA with 3 hits each again last night. That team has probably the most exciting mix of prospects the Phillies have had in 30 years. Williams and Quinn have had great years too. Another player not talked about much as a prospect is 1B Brock Stassi 304 BA, 10 HR, 71 RBI, and a very impressive 391 OBP with 57 walks to 48 strike outs. (Phils could really use that type of production at 1B) I think all 5 of them will be in AAA next year making them just 1 step from the majors. Add Altherr and Lino in AAA now along with Alfaro (injury) to the mix we will likely see some good prospects at some point next year.

Loewen is walk crazy, so beware. I wish him luck though.

GM-Carson said...

And why the hell wasn't DeFailus sent down?

oh hey, we're not in last place anymore. celebrate good times.

Bob D said...

Wooo! When is the parade?

They must actually be a decently good (better) team to sustain the winning ways for nearly 4 weeks now. Now they are playing most of them against teams with losing records but still.

Bob D said...

Since Papelbon has left, the 7th, 8th and 9th innings in games when ahead has been Gomez, Garcia, and Giles.

3G Service?

I know the Phillies overall still "stink" in the eyes of the baseball world, but I'm excited about what's going on at every level of the organization.

Andrew Knapp through 33 games for Reading - .392/1.107 with 24 R, 39 RBI, 17 DBL, 2 TRPL, and 5 HR. #PhuturePhillies

Also, Odubel Herrera has proven he belongs. Getting near .300 with some pop and speed. He'll only get better as he learns more.

GM-Carson said...

Utley looks good so far...

Bob D said...

Herrera and Hernandez have been pacing the offense - and they have made it fun to watch them and the team.

Brock Stassi is not listed high as a prospect, but he has .308/.859 with 54 R, 74 RBI, 26 DBL, 1 TRPL, 11 HR, 57 BB to 51 K's and a .392 OBP. Expect him to be in AAA next year just a phone call away from Philly. How nice would it be to have a 1st baseman who does not strike out 200 times a year?

AAA will likely have Williams OF, Altherr OF (or on Phillies), Quinn OF, Stassi 1B, Crawford, SS Knapp C, Lino C, and/or Alfaro C. These are all position players who are legitimate Major League prospects of various degrees. They all have the potential of even getting called up at some point next year or in Altherr case this year. Leigh Valley has a losing record this year but have been surging recently. Next year they may be the best team in the league #PhuturePhillies.

Stassi has had a damn fine season. Even if he's not a "prospect", that doesn't mean he can't be an important part of the future. You don't put up those kind of numbers without some skill. His ability to make contact is important. I'd rather have 10 HR and an .800 OPS from my first baseman than 25 HR and a .700ish OPS.
