Cesar Hernandez is looking good for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Sunday 22 September 2013 at 8:08 am

The only thing good about having a lousy year like the Phillies are in 2013, is that you get to look at some younger players later in the season.  23-year old switch-hitting 2B/OF Cesar Hernandez came into this season as the Phillies’ #15 prospect according to Baseball America.  Hernandez has played in 26 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 27 of 86 (.314 avg, .751 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 0 homers and 8 RBIs.  He has also played in 107 games in AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies in 2013 and he was 126 of 401 (.314 avg, .785 OPS) with 61 runs scored, 2 homers, 37 RBIs and 33 stolen bases.  Hernandez is going to get a shot to make the Phillies’ 2014 roster next spring and his versatility in the field will do him well.

Cody Asche is getting hot with the bat lately for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Friday 6 September 2013 at 9:34 am

23-year old lefty swinging 3B Cody Asche is trying to stake a claim to be the Phillies’ starting 3B in 2014.  In his last seven games, Asche is 12 of 28 (.429 avg) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 7 RBIs.  He has now played in 29 games overall this year for the Phillies and he is 27 of 98 (.276 avg, .773 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Asche came into this season as the Phillies’ #7 prospect according to Baseball America, so they have high hopes for him moving forward.

Darin Ruf has been hitting well for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 22 August 2013 at 7:52 am

The Phillies have suffered a lot of injuries in 2013, which has opened the door for 27-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Darin Ruf, and he is taking advantage of that so far.  Ruf has played in 38 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 35 of 130 (.269 avg, .879 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 8 homers and 13 RBIs.  He is hacking at the plate though, as he has walked 16 times while also whiffing 47 times so far this year.  Ruf has now played in 50 games in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 46 of 163 (.282 avg, .919 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 11 homers and 23 RBIs.  The Phillies are going to continue to play Ruf and see what he can do the rest of the way in 2013.

Ben Revere has been playing well lately for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 4 July 2013 at 6:23 am

25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Ben Revere had a rough April and he almost got benched for it, but he’s playing well since then.  Since May 1st, Revere has played in 56 games in which he is 60 for 184 (.326 avg) with 23 runs scored, 0 homers, 8 RBIs and 15 stolen bases.  Revere has now played in 79 games overall this year for the Phillies and he is 78 of 274 (.285 avg, .649 OPS) with 32 runs scored, 0 homers, 12 RBIs and 20 stolen bases.  The Phillies hope that Revere keeps up the good work as they are going to need all hands on the deck if they are going to make a playoff run this year.

Domonic Brown has another good month in June for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Monday 1 July 2013 at 7:46 am

25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Domonic Brown continues to rake for the Phillies.  He played in 28 games in June and he was 30 for 108 (.278 avg, .884 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 6 homers, 21 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  Brown has now played in 82 games overall this year and he is 83 for 303 (.274 avg, .866 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 21 homers, 57 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Brown is leading the Phillies in runs scored, homers and RBIs so far this year and he is tied for second on the team in stolen bases.  The Phillies were smart to stick with Brown and not to trade him the last couple of years when opposing teams were trying to pry him away from them.

Michael Young is starting to heat up this June for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 22 June 2013 at 12:39 pm

36-year old righty swinging 3B Michael Young is starting to heat up with the bat for the Phillies so far in June.  He has played in 16 games so far this month and he is 24 of 68 (.353 avg, .862 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has now played in 67 games overall this year and he is 70 for 246 (.285 avg, .745 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  The Phillies need all of the help that they can get offensively, so they need Young to keep hitting the ball well moving forward.

Michael Young is off to a good start for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by joelapinski on Friday 12 April 2013 at 7:30 pm

34-year old righty swinging 3B Michael Young is off to a good start for the Phillies.  He has played in 9 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 12 of 32 (.375 avg, 1.053 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 1 homer and 3 RBIs.  It’s a good sign that Young is off to such a good start as he is coming off one of his worst years in the majors.  He played in 156 games for the Rangers last year and he was 169 of 611 (.277 avg, .682 OPS) with 79 runs scored, 8 homers, 67 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.

It’s good to see Ryan Howard and Chase Utley healthy for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, In Need of a Slumpbuster, Playing Well by joelapinski on Friday 5 April 2013 at 10:41 am

The Phillies worked 33-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard and 34-year old lefty swinging 2B Chase Utley hard in spring training to get them ready for 2013.  That was smart as Howard (71 games) and Utley (83 games) didn’t play many games for them last year due to injury.  Howard is off to a slow start, as he has played in 3 games in which he is 1 for 12 (.083 avg, 237 OPS) with 1 RBI.  Utley has been much better so far this year, working in 3 games in which he is 5 for 11 (.455 avg, 1.462 OPS) with 2 runs scored, a double, a triple, a homer and 6 RBIs.  Howard and Utley’s health are a huge key for the Phillies in 2013.

Jimmy Rollins finished strongly for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 1 October 2012 at 6:51 pm

33-year old switch-hitting shortstop Jimmy Rollins has had a big month in September for the Phillies. He has played in 27 games for the Phillies so far this month and he is 31 of 108 (.287 avg, .913 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 8 homers, 17 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Rollins has now played in 156 games overall this year and he is 158 of 632 (.250 avg, .743 OPS) with 102 runs scored, 23 homers, 68 RBIs and 30 stolen bases. Rollins’ overall production numbers look good, but he did struggle quite a bit this year.

John Mayberry has been ripping the ball lately for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 12 September 2012 at 1:42 pm

28-year old righty swinging outfielder John Mayberry has been ripping the ball lately for the Phillies. Since August 1st, Mayberry has played in 37 games in which he is 38 for 131 (.290 avg) with 18 runs scored, 6 homers and 16 RBIs. He has now played in 130 games for the Phillies this year and he is 95 of 374 (.254 avg, .731 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 14 homers, 41 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Phillies need Mayberry to keep up the good work if they are going to make it to the playoffs as a Wild Card.
