Phillies Minor League Roundup for 4/19 - 4/20/19

MLB: Spring Training-Pittsburgh Pirates at Philadelphia Phillies Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s Probables:

LHV: Nick Pivetta
REA: Adonis Medina
CLR: TBD
LWD: Dominic Pipkin

Rochester 4, Lehigh Valley 1 (April 19)
Lehigh Valley 13, Rochester 8 (April 20)

Ranger Suarez - 7 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 K, HR, HBP, 7 GB, 3 FB
JoJo Romero - 5 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, HR, 8 GB, 2 FB
Malquin Canelo - 0 for 8, BB, 4 K
Jan Hernandez - 0 for 4
Mitch Walding - 0 for 4, 3 K
Deivy Grullon - 5 for 8, R, 2B, 3 RBI, BB, 3 K (passed ball)

Not the greatest of pitching performances this weekend. JoJo Romero’s slow start (9.00 ERA in 13 innings) has been disappointing. The few “prospects” on the team didn’t produce much, though Mitch Walding was recalled to the big club before Saturday’s game. Deivy Grullon has been a hitting machine, slashing .395/.452/.605 in 38 at-bats. He doesn’t project to be more than a back-up catcher with good defense, but I think we find out before the season is over that he is a better fit than Andrew Knapp.

Reading, Harrisburg (April 19, ppd due to rain, makeup on 5/26)
Harrisburg 3, Reading 2 (April 20)

Ramon Rosso - 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 9 K, HBP, 2 GB, 3 FB
Luke Williams - 0 for 4, K
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 4
Adam Haseley - 1 for 4, HR, 2 RBI
Austin Listi - 0 for 4, 2 K
Darick Hall - 0 for 3, BB, K
Grenny Cumana - 1 for 4, K, SB
Arquimedes Gamboa - 1 for 2, 2 BB, K, SB

Ramon Rosso just keeps plugging along, even though he doesn’t have great stuff (it’s deceptive though!). He is 2-0 with a 0.59 ERA and 20 strikeouts through 15.1 innings this season. Adisson Russ came in the bottom of the 9th in a 2-1 game, but gave up two runs for the walkoff loss. Adam Haseley hit his first homer of the season. It was one of only three hits for the Fightins in the game. Reading is collectively hitting .211 on the season, last in the Eastern League.

Tampa 8, Clearwater 4 (April 19)
Clearwater 2, Tampa 1 (April 20)

Kyle Young - 5 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 6 K, 2 HR, 7 GB, 1 FB
Andrew Brown - 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, K, WP, HBP, 5 GB, 5 FB
Nick Maton - 0 for 3, BB (throwing error)
Simon Muzziotti - 1 for 4, SB
Matt Vierling - 3 for 4, R
Madison Stokes - 1 for 7, R, RBI, BB, K
Jhailyn Ortiz - 2 for 7, 2 R, HR, BB, 3 K
Jake Scheiner - 3 for 7, R, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, K
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 3, BB, K
Colby Fitch - 0 for 7, BB, 3 K
Daniel Brito - 0 for 3, K
Danny Mayer - 2 for 2, R, 2B, 3B, BB
Edgar Cabral - 0 for 1, 2 RBI
Ben Aklinski - 0 for 2, BB, K
Jose Gomez - 1 for 3
Dalton Guthrie - 1 for 4, 2B, K

Kyle Young fell to 0-3 on the season, but that win-loss is quite deceptive. In his first two starts of the season he gave up only 3 earned runs on 8 hits in 10 innings with 13 strikeouts to just 1 walk. Friday’s start was truly his worst outing of the season and made his ERA rise to 5.40. Meanwhile Andrew Brown picked up his first win in what was easily his best start of the season after giving up 5 earned runs in back to back outings to start the year. Jhailyn Ortiz swatted his first HR of the season and Simon Muzziotti swiped his 6th bag already.

Lexington 5, Lakewood 3 (April 19)
Lexington 7, Lakewood 2 (April 20)

Ethan Lindow - 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 K, 5 GB, 3 FB
Tyler McKay - 1.1 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, K, WP, 3 GB, 0 FB
Yerwin Trejo - 0 for 5, K (fielding error)
Luis Garcia - 0 for 5, 5 K
Alec Bohm - 5 for 7, 2 R, 2B, BB (two fielding errors)
Ben Pelletier - 2 for 8, 2B, K (fielding error)
Abraham Gutierrez - 1 for 4
Malvin Matos - 3 for 8, BB, 2 K
Cole Stobbe - 0 for 8, 3 K
Jonathan Guzman - 3 for 9, 2B, RBI, 4 K (throwing error)
Rafael Marchan - 0 for 4
Jake Holmes - 1 for 4, R
Carlos De La Cruz - 1 for 3, BB, K

Ethan Lindow was quite good on Friday, his piggyback starting partner Colton Eastman...not so much. Eastman gave up 4 runs (3 earned) to take his second loss of the season. The offense behind them went 2 for 9 with RISP and left 8 on base. Tyler McKay was very, not good and took his first loss of the season. Alec Bohm had an excellent weekend and is really seeing the ball well at the plate. He is slashing .345/.433/.491 with 1 HR and 3 SB in 55 at-bats. His two fielding errors came at both 1st and 3rd base if you were wondering.
