Phillies Minor League Roundup for 6/6/18

Reading Rainbow

Today’s Probables:

LHV: Enyel De Los Santos (12:05 start on MiLB.tv)
REA: Ranger Saurez
CLR: Mauricio Llovera
LWD: Kyle Young

Lehigh Valley 5, Gwinnett 1

Drew Anderson - 5.1 IP, 5 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K, 9 GB, 1 FB
Dean Anna - 1 for 4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, HBP
Adron Chambers - 3 for 4, RBI (outfield assist, 2B)
Matt McBride - 2 for 3, 2 R, 2B, BB
Damek Tomscha - 0 for 4, 2 K

Drew Anderson out-duels Braves pitching prospect Mike Soroka last night. It was Anderson’s 2nd win of the season. I still see back of the rotation potential for Anderson and has the added bonus of already being on the 40-man roster. Once he gets his arm-strength up it will be interesting to see if either he or Lively is called to be the new 5th starter when the next injury bares its ugly head.

Altoona 4, Reading 0

Elniery Garcia - 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, 5 GB, 4 FB
Jeff Singer - 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 3, BB, K, SB
Cornelius Randolph - 0 for 3, BB, K
Deivi Grullon - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K (throwing error)
Darick Hall - 0 for 4
Zach Green - 1 for 3, BB, K
Jan Hernandez - 1 for 4, 3 K

Elniery Garcia is activated from the DL and was just about as spectacular as he was before he went on it. I do wonder how much longer of a leash Garcia gets before getting released. He has not been the same pitcher since he was suspended for PED use. Perhaps last night it didn’t even matter given the offense was frozen behind Pirates prospect Mitch Keller’s excellent performance. Malquin Canelo was the lone bright spot yesterday, raising his season line to .271/.339/.435 with 10 stolen bases.

Clearwater 6, Daytona 2

Adonis Medina - 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, BB, 6 K, HR, 6 GB, 2 FB
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 5, R, 2B
Adam Haseley - 1 for 5, RBI, 2 K
Austin Listi - 1 for 5
Henri Lartigue - 1 for 4, 2B, K
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 1, K
Luke Williams - 0 for 4
Edgar Cabral - 1 for 3, 2 R, BB, SB
Jose Pujols - 1 for 3, 2 R, HR, BB
Raul Rivas - 1 for 4, R, 2 RBI
Jose Gomez - 2 for 3, RBI, BB, SB

Adonis Medina wasn’t at his most stellar, but settled down after a two-run 2nd inning. He wound up throwing 50 of his 83 pitches for strikes and improved to 6-2 on the season with a 4.82 ERA. His ERA was as high as 6.67 just 3 starts ago. Jose Pujols mashed his 9th HR of the season, a solo shot in the 4th inning. Mickey Moniak left the game after one at-bat yesterday. It will be interesting to see if he returns to the lineup quickly.

Lakewood 5, Hagerstown 2 (GM1 of DH, 7 innings)
Hagerstown 2, Lakewood 1 (GM2 of DH, 7 innings, makeup of 6/5 ppd)

Ramon Rosso - 5.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, WP, HBP, 4 GB, 3 FB
Will Stewart - 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 K, 6 GB, 5 FB
Jake Scheiner - 3 for 7, R, 2 K
Nick Maton - 2 for 6, R, 2B, K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 2 for 6, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K
Colby Fitch - 1 for 7, HR, 2 K
Quincy Nieporte - 2 for 4, R, 2 BB
Daniel Brito - 1 for 3, R, K
Rodolfo Duran - 1 for 2, RBI, BB, K
Jesus Alastre - 0 for 6, RBI, K
Kevin Markham - 0 for 3, R
Dalton Guthrie - 0 for 2
Gregori Rivero - 0 for 3, RBI
Josh Stephen - 1 for 2

Lakewood splits the doubleheader behind two good pitching performances. Ironically enough Rosso gets the win, while Stewart gets the no-decision. Stewart’s ERA drops to an incredible 1.25. Colby Fitch added his 3rd HR of the season in the first game. Since returning from the DL, Jhailyn Ortiz is slashing .333/.364/.429 in 66 PA. The 17 strikeouts aren’t great, but it’s good to see the adjustment period in full-season ball is going fairly well for the 19 year old outfielder.
