The Philadelphia Phillies release Cory Sullivan

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Sunday 29 May 2011 at 8:59 am

The Phillies have released 31-year old lefty swinging outfielder Cory Sullivan. Sullivan played in 36 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 21 for 100 (.210 avg, .586 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 0 homers, 14 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He has played in 476 games in six years in the majors and he is 305 for 1,127 (.271 avg, .708 OPS) with 156 runs scored, 10 homers, 97 RBIs and 32 stolen bases. The Phillies needed room for Scott Podsednik which led to Sullivan’s release.

Chase Utley is off to a good start on his rehab assignment for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 14 May 2011 at 11:48 am

32-year old lefty swinging 2B Chase Utley is off to a good start in A-ball for the Philadelphia Phillies. He is rehabbing a bum knee that caused him to miss a lot of time last year. He has played in 3 games for the Clearwater Threshers so far this year and he is 4 for 10 (.400 avg, 1.255 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI. The Phillies are going to take their good ole sweet time with Utley as they have until the end of the month to activate him from the D.L. Utley has played in 1,006 games in his first 8 years with the Phillies and he is 1,095 for 3,735 (.293 avg, .894 OPS) with 677 runs scored, 177 homers, 650 RBIs and 96 stolen bases. The Phillies have been winning without Utley, but they are a much better all-around team with him. They can’t wait to get him back.

Juan Perez is off to a good start in AAA for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 12 May 2011 at 3:19 pm

32-year old lefty reliever Juan Perez is off to a solid start in AAA-ball for the Phillies so far this year. He has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 0-0 with 4 saves, a 1.93 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has only given up 7 hits while whiffing 20 batters in his first 14 innings of the year, but, he has also walked 11 batters and that’s way too many. He has now pitched in 406 games (45 starts) in his first 11 years in the minors and he is 38-40 with 35 saves, a 3.49 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. He has whiffed 713 batters in the minors in only 708 2/3 innings which shows what kind of stuff he has. Perez last pitched in the majors back in 2007 with the Pirates. He has now pitched in 24 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 0-1 with a 5.17 ERA and a 1.79 WHIP. If something happens to either J.C. Romero or Antonio Bastardo while Perez is still pitching well, he might get another shot at the show in 2011.

Kevin Frandsen gets suspended for 50 games for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 11 May 2011 at 5:16 pm

28-year old righty swinging infielder Kevin Frandsen has been suspended to 50 games for violating baseball’s drug policy due to unprescibed ritalin. Frandsen has played in 30 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 35 for 109 (.321 avg, .873 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 3 homers, 18 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Frandsen has played in 228 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 138 for 568 (.243 avg, .636 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 5 homers, 38 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. I’m thinking he won’t get a chance to play for the Phillies this year.

The Philadelphia Phillies are happy with Jonathan Singleton’s progress in the minors

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Friday 6 May 2011 at 10:03 am

19-year old lefty swinging 1B/OF Jonathan Singleton came into this year as the Phillies’ #2 prospect coming into this year according to Baseball America. Singleton has played in 18 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 18 for 58 (.310 avg, .817 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer, 9 RBIs and 1 stolen base. He has now played in 153 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 156 of 534 (.292 avg, .859 OPS) with 81 runs scored, 17 homers, 98 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Singleton would be best served to learn a corner outfield position because I don’t see him bumping Ryan Howard out of a job.

The Philadelphia Phillies release Chris Duffy

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 31 July 2010 at 10:23 pm

The Phillies have released 30-year old lefty swinging outfielder Chris Duffy. Duffy played in 91 games in AAA-ball this season and he was 84 of 346 (.243 avg, .668 OPS) with 47 runs scored, 5 homers, 34 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. The Phillies just didn’t see any way that Duffy would play for them at some point in 2010 so they did the right thing in cutting him loose.

The Philadelphia Phillies are ready to recall J.A. Happ from the minors

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 24 July 2010 at 5:02 pm

27-year old lefty starting pitcher J.A. Happ has been mostly forgotten about by the Phillies. He has been on quite an extended rehab assignment in the minors. Happ has pitched in 9 games (8 starts) in A+AA+AAA-ball this year and he is 1-2 with a 5.97 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP. He pitched in 2 games (both starts) for the Phillies before getting injured and he was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. Happ has pitched in 46 games (30 starts) in parts of four years with the Phillies and he is 14-5 with a 3.06 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Happ pitches well in Jamie Moyer’s old spot in the rotation because they need the help if they are going to make a run at the Braves in the N.L. East.

Domonic Brown isn’t going anywhere except Philly for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 19 July 2010 at 10:08 am

22-year old lefty swinging outfielder Dominic Brown is the one player the Phillies just refuse to trade. He was the Phillies’ #1 prospect heading into this season according to Baseball America. Brown has played in 84 games in AA+AAA-ball this year and he is 100 of 306 (.327 avg, .984 OPS) with 60 runs scored, 19 homers, 63 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. If Raul Ibanez doesn’t start hitting soon don’t be surprised to see the Phillies replace him with Brown.

The Philadelphia Phillies lose Quintin Berry on waivers

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 15 July 2010 at 7:38 am

The Phillies have lost 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Quintin Berry on waivers to the Padres. Berry played in 66 games in AA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 50 of 238 (.210 avg, .606 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 2 homers, 25 RBIs and 23 stolen bases. He has played in 523 games in his five years in the minors and he is 524 of 1,962 (.267 avg, .692 OPS) with 307 runs scored, 13 homers, 153 RBIs and 196 stolen bases. This is not a big loss for the Phillies as Berry’s only real asset is his speed and you can’t steal first base.

The Philadelphia Phillies expect more out of Trevor May

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 3 July 2010 at 3:48 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies expect more out of 20-year old righty starting pitcher Trevor May. After all, he was considered the #5 prospect in the Phillies’ system coming into this season according to Baseball America. May has pitched in 16 games (14 starts) in A-ball this season and he is 5-5 with a 5.01 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. He has now pitched in 36 games (31 starts) in his three years in the minors for the Phillies and he is 10-7 with a 3.73 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. May does have great stuff as evidenced by the fact that he has only allowed 122 hits in his minor league career while whiffing 196 batters in 159 1/3 innings. He does have control issues as he has walked 111 in the minors and that is by far the biggest issue with him. If he starts throwing more strikes the Phillies could put him on the fast track.
