20-year old righty swinging catcher Sebastian Valle came into this season as the Phillies’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America. Valle has played in 37 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 52 for 149 (.349 avg, .865 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 3 homers and 19 RBIs. The amazing thing about Valle is the .349 batting average as he has only walked 2 times so far this year! Valle has now played in 351 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 357 for 1,288 (.277 avg, .767 OPS) with 169 runs scored, 30 homers, 191 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Valle, if all goes well, will replace Carlos Ruiz in a few years as the Phillies’ starting catcher.
