Joe Thurston is playing well in AAA for the Philadelphia Phillies

28 year old lefty swinging 2B Joe Thurston is having a good season in AAA ball for the Phillies.  He has played in 108 games this season for the AAA team and he is 115 for 410 (.280 avg, .750 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 3 homers, 46 RBIs and 15 stolen bases.  Thurston has to be a little bit discouraged that the Phillies traded for Tadahito Iguchi instead of giving him a shot to replace the injured Chase Utley, but, if he finishes the season strong he will likely get called up in September for the stretch run.
