Drew Carpenter has regressed for the Philadelphia Phillies in the minors

Drew Carpenter seemed to be a pitcher on the rise in the Phillies’ organization after winning 17 games at Single A-Clearwater last season. But he started this season in AA ball and he failed miserably. He started 11 games in AA-ball this season and he was 2-7 with a 6.94 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP. The Phillies then demoted the 23-year old righty starting pitcher to A-ball and he appears to have found his comfort zone. He has now started 15 games in A+AA ball this season and he is 3-9 with a 5.65 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. It will be interesting to see how Carpenter handles his next chance in AA-ball as his stuff is good enough to succeed there.

    The phillies are really good at Scouting, i really give the phillies credit for their efforts in scouting young prospects. although lenell mcgee was someone who i really would have liked to see get picked up by philly, also a diamond in the rough from the ABI Academy in Washington montaous Walton is doing well over the course of the summer. look forward to seeing more Talented athletes and as for Carpenter he will progress throughout the minors for sure.
