Tyler Henson is having a decent season in the minors for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 27 August 2013 at 8:11 am

25-year old righty swinging 3B/OF Tyler Henson is having a decent year in the minors for the Phillies this year.  He has played in 104 games in AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies so far this year and he is 92 of 328 (.280 avg, .808 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 8 homers, 34 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.  Henson has now played in 813 games in his first eight years in the minors and he is 769 of 2,921 (.263 avg, .724 OPS) with 414 runs scored, 56 homers, 347 RBIs and 91 stolen bases.  Henson could get called up when rosters expand next month.

The Philadelphia Phillies shut down Tommy Joseph

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 8 August 2013 at 12:24 pm

The Phillies have shut down 22-year old righty swinging C/1B Tommy Joseph for the rest of the 2013 season due to lingering concussion like symptoms.  Joseph played in 36 games in Rookie+A+AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 22 of 123 (.179 avg, .514 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 3 homers and 16 RBIs.  Joseph has now played in 388 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 368 of 1,477 (.249 avg, .717 OPS) with 176 runs scored, 52 homers, 227 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Joseph came into this season as the Phillies’ #3 overall prospect according to Baseball America, so it was smart of them to be safe with him and shut him down for 2013.

The Philadelphia Phillies call up Cody Asche

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 30 July 2013 at 2:45 pm

The Phillies have called up 23-year old lefty swinging 3B Cody Asche.  He came into this season as the Phillies’ #7 prospect according to Baseball America.  Asche played in 104 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 119 of 404 (.295 avg, .837 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 15 homers, 68 RBIs and 11 stolen bases.  He has now played in 302 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 333 of 1,161 (.287 avg, .780 OPS) with 139 runs scored, 29 homers, 159 RBIs and 22 stolen bases.   Asche will probably push Michael Young for playing time right away.

The Philadelphia Phillies release Carlos Zambrano

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 25 July 2013 at 4:16 pm

The Phillies have released 32-year old righty starting pitcher Carlos Zambrano.  He pitched in 7 games (all starts) in A+AA+AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 3-0 with a 2.04 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.  Zambrano has pitched in 354 games (302 starts) in his first 12 years in the majors and he is 132-91 with a 3.66 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  The Phillies just didn’t think that Zambrano could help them this year, plain and simple.

Steve Susdorf is having a solid year in AAA-ball for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 22 July 2013 at 6:45 am

27-year old lefty swinging outfielder Steve Susdorf is having a solid year in AAA-ball for the Phillies in 2013.  He has played in 68 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 64 of 188 (.340 avg, .864 OPS) with 31 runs scored, 1 homer, 24 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Susdorf has now played in 526 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 541 of 1,778 (.304 avg, .804 OPS) with 252 runs scored, 32 homers, 256 RBIs and 32 stolen bases.  Susdorf could get his first shot at the show at some point in 2013.

Maikel Franco has been flexing his muscles in the minors for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 26 June 2013 at 7:08 pm

20-year old righty swinging 3B Maikel Franco came into this season as the Phillies’ #8 prospect in Baseball America and he’s showing why so far in the minors in 2013.  He has played in 70 games in A+AA-ball so far this year and he is 90 for 285 (.316 avg, .967 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 18 homers and 57 RBIs.  Franco has now played in 324 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 340 of 1,249 (.272 avg, .774 OPS) with 164 runs scored, 37 homers, 214 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  The Phillies are likely going to put Franco on the fast track to the majors now….if he can handle it.

The Philadelphia Phillies sign Mike MacDougal

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 25 June 2013 at 6:13 pm

The Phillies have signed 36-year old righty reliever Mike MacDougal to a minor league deal.  He pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Reds in AAA-ball earlier this year and he was 0-1 with a 5.49 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.  MacDougal last pitched in the majors back in 2012 with the Dodgers.  MacDougal has now pitched in 407 games (3 starts) in his first 12 years in the majors and he is 18-23 with 71 saves, a 4.00 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.  If MacDougal looks good, he might not spend much time in AAA, as the Phillies need help in the pen right now.

Carlos Zambrano is looking sharp in the minors for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 9 June 2013 at 7:45 am

32-year old righty starting pitcher Carlos Zambrano is looking sharp in the minors for the Phillies.  He has pitched in 3 games (all starts) in A+AA-ball so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.55 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP.  He has pitched in 354 games (302 starts) in his major league career so far and he is 132-91 with a 3.66 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  Zambrano is likely to be pitching for the Phillies in the very near future, as they could use the help.

1B/OF Darin Ruf is awaiting his next shot with the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 12 May 2013 at 10:56 am

26-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Darin Ruf is awaiting his next chance with the Phillies.  He played in 12 games for the Phillies last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 11 for 33 (.333 avg, 1.079 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 3 homers and 10 RBIs.  Ruf has played in 33 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies so far this year and he is 35 for 123 (.285 avg, .845 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 5 homers, 21 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Ruf has now played in 491 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 533 of 1,755 (.304 avg, .902 OPS) with 275 runs scored, 72 homers, 304 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  He came into this season as the Phillies’ #9 prospect according to Baseball America.  I think Ruf will make it back to Philly at some point in 2013.

The Philadelphia Phillies call up Tyler Cloyd

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 10 May 2013 at 8:53 am

The Phillies will call up 25-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Cloyd tonight to start against the Diamondbacks tonight.  He will get the first shot to replace Roy Halladay in the starting rotation.  Cloyd pitched in 6 games (all starts) in AAA-ball this year and he was 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  Cloyd got his first taste of the majors for the Phillies last year when he started 6 games in which he was 2-2 with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.  Cloyd came into this season as the Phillies’ #21 prospect according to Baseball America and they hope that he’s up for the challenge.
