Season Recap: Yacksel Rios

Yacksel Rios pitched in 13 games for the Phillies, 11 of them effectively.

In the coming days, we're going to recap every player who spent a part of  2017 with the Philadelphia Phillies. The previous post looked at starting pitcher Zach Eflin. We even have a landing post with a link to each player's season.

In 10 years, some kid is going to be looking at a scribble on his baseball and wonder who the heck that signature belongs to.
 Rios, 24, might not stick in the big leagues. He wasn't high on anyone's prospect list. But he seems to limit walks and home runs, so maybe he'll get another shot.

If he remains on the 40-man roster, it's likely he continue to shuttle between Lehigh Valley and Philly.

Any time the Phillies add a player who shares my birthday, it is time to take notice. Except that I was so tuned out from them this year that I overlooked this guy. Not like when the Phillies had Johnny Estrada or Jeff Conine or even Ricardo Jordan.

(I deleted my earlier comment because deleting and reposting appears to be the only way to correct a minor typo here.)
