The Philadelphia Phillies have five rookies that could help them in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 5 April 2012 at 12:30 pm

The Phillies have five rookies that could help them at some point in 2012. Here is a look at them:

Freddy Galvis: 22-year old switch-hitting 2B Freddy Galvis comes into this season as the Phillies’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America. He played in 137 games in AA+AAA-ball last year and he was 151 of 543 (.278 avg, .716 OPS) with 78 runs scored, 8 homers, 43 RBIs and 23 stolen bases. He has now played in 526 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 488 of 1,987 (.246 avg, .613 OPS) with 256 runs scored, 18 homers, 160 RBIs and 68 stolen bases. Galvis will be counted on to fill in for Chase Utley until he’s ready to return to action and those are some huge shoes to have to fill.

Phillippe Aumont: 23-year old righty reliever Phillippe Aumont comes into this season as the Phillies’ #5 prospect according to Baseball America. Aumont pitched in 43 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball last year in which he was 2-5 with 7 saves, a 2.68 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has now pitched in 129 games (29 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 11-26 with 26 saves, a 4.21 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. Aumont seemed to really start to get it last year, so he could help the Phillies in the pen at some point in 2012.

Justin DeFratus: 24-year old righty reliever Justin DeFratus comes into this season according to Baseball America. He pitched in 5 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. He also pitched in 51 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball last year and he was 6-3 with 15 saves, a 2.99 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. DeFratus has now pitched in 160 games (34 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 22-17 with 39 saves, a 3.18 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. DeFratus is going to start the 2012 season on the D.L., but he should be able to help the Phillies later in the year.

Joe Savery: 26-year old lefty reliever Joe Savery comes into this season as the Phillies’ #25 prospect according to Baseball America. He pitched in 4 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.38 WHIP. Savery also pitched in 25 games (0 starts) in A+AA+AAA-ball last year and he was 5-0 with 2 saves, a 1.50 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. He has now pitched in 115 games (77 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 33-31 with 2 saves, a 4.08 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. Savery will work out of the bullpen for the Phillies in 2012, as he looked pretty solid in his first full season as reliever last year in the minors.

Michael Schwimer: 26-year old righty reliever Michael Schwimer comes into this season as the Phillies’ #30 prospect according to Baseball America. He pitched in 12 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 1-1 with a 5.02 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP. He also pitched in 47 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 9-1 with 10 saves, a 1.85 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Schwimer has now pitched in 170 games (0 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 20-10 with 49 saves, a 2.50 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Schwimer can help them out of the pen at some point in 2012.
