Phillies Minor League Roundup for 4/30/19

MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at Toronto Blue Jays Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s Probables:

LHV: Tyler Viza
REA: Bailey Falter
CLR: TBD
LWD: Ethan Lindow

Syracuse 18, Lehigh Valley 5

Drew Anderson - 3 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 3 ER, BB, 2 K, 4 GB, 1 FB
Kyle Dohy - 2 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Dylan Cozens - 0 for 4, BB, 4 K
Deivy Grullon - 1 for 3, RBI, BB, 2 K (passed ball)
Mitch Walding - 0 for 3, R, BB, 3 K (two fielding errors)
Malquin Canelo - 2 for 3, R, BB (two fielding errors)

This one was kind of bad, huh? Considering how good Lehigh Valley has been this season (16-8), we’ll give them a pass. Drew Anderson has not been sharp in his two AAA appearances this season, giving up 15 hits and 7 earned runs in 7 innings pitched. Kyle Dohy doesn’t appear ready for AAA despite the promotion last week. He’s given up 11 earned runs on 6 hits and 7 walks in just 3 innings. Backup catcher Matt McBride came out to pitch the ninth and gave up 4 hits and hit two batters (giving up 6 runs, all unearned). If Shane Robinson homers excite you, he hit his 3rd of the season last night.

Harrisburg 3, Reading 1

David Parkinson - 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, HR, 3 GB, 6 FB
Luke Williams - 0 for 3, BB, 2 K
Mickey Moniak - 0 for 4, K
Austin Listi - 1 for 4, 2B, RBI, K
Arquimedes Gamboa - 0 for 3
Josh Stephen - 1 for 1, SB

The luster that David Parkinson earned himself in 2018 seems to be wearing off in AA. He picked up his 2nd loss of the season. His line so far in 2019: 19.2 IP, 16 H, 10 ER, 12 BB, 18 K. The offense was punchless, collectively putting together just 5 hits and going 0 for 7 with RISP. Mickey Moniak is a mess at the plate right now, going 5 for 41 in his last 10 games with 14 strikeouts to 0 walks.

Clearwater 3, Fort Myers 0

Damon Jones - 4.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 7 K, WP, HBP, 2 GB, 2 FB (throwing and pickoff errors)
Simon Muzziotti - 0 for 3, R, 2 BB, 2 K, CS
Alec Bohm - 2 for 4, R, BB, 2 K
Madison Stokes - 1 for 5, 2 K
Matt Vierling - 1 for 2, RBI, 2 BB, HBP, SB (outfield assist, 2B)
Jhailyn Ortiz - 0 for 4, BB, K
Jake Scheiner - 2 for 3, R, RBI, 2 BB, K
Rodolfo Duran - 0 for 5, 3 K (passed ball)
Nick Maton - 1 for 3, RBI, K, HBP
Dalton Guthrie - 0 for 4, K

Alec Bohm made his Clearwater debut last night with a two-hit night. Matt Vierling’s exceptional start to the season continues to chug along. The 22 year old leftfielder has a .310/.389/.488 line in 84 at-bats with 3 HR and 6 SB. Damon Jones has perhaps one of the strangest lines in the organization this season. He’s struck out an impressive 36 batters in 23.1 innings and held batters to just 2 earned runs on 10 hits. Why is this strange? He’s walked 17 batters.

West Virginia 2, Lakewood 0

James McArthur - 0.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, HR, WP
Manuel Silva - 4 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 2 GB, 4 FB
Jonathan Guzman - 0 for 4, K
Rafael Marchan - 2 for 4, K
Ben Pelletier - 0 for 4
Abraham Gutierrez - 1 for 4, K
Malvin Matos - 0 for 2, BB, K, SB
Carlos De La Cruz - 0 for 3, 2 K
Jake Holmes - 2 for 3
Luis Garcia - 0 for 2, K

James McArthur is still getting stretched out, but couldn’t manage to get out of the 1st inning yesterday after throwing 32 pitches (only 11 for strikes). He picked up his 2nd loss of the season. 20 year old lefty Manuel Silva made his 2019 debut last night with four scoreless innings. Silva had a 2.60 ERA in 62.1 innings with 60 strikeouts to 27 walks last season. Despite the Blue Claws outhitting West Virginia 6-3, they were 1 for 7 with RISP. Rafael Marchan just continues to hit, bringing his season line to .315/.393/.426 in 54 at-bats.
