There’s only three weeks left in the minor league regular season, let’s take a look at how some Philadelphia Phillies prospects are doing as we enter the home stretch.

Records

  • Lehigh Valley: 72-47, first in the International League North.
  • Reading: 58-60, 10.5 GB in the Eastern League East, on an eight game winning streak.
  • Clearwater: 63-54, leads the Florida State League North with a 31-18 second half record.
  • Lakewood: 74-44, leads the South Atlantic League North in both the first and second halves.
  • Williamsport: 23-32, 9.5 GB in the New York Penn league Pinckney division.

Notable Performances

  • No. 10 prospect Cole Irvin continues to show promise in Lehigh Valley. On Sunday, he went seven scoreless innings allowing three hits and three walks to go along with two strikeouts.
  • No. 6 prospect Mickey Moniak went 2-3 with a double and a triple for Clearwater on Monday.
  • No. 3 prospect Adonis Medina had six scoreless innings of relief this week. Rehabbing Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff started the game, but Medina finished the last six innings, allowing no earned runs on four hits and three walks. He struck out five.
  • Matt Vierling went 2-3 with a double and home run for Lakewood this week. He scored two runs and drove one in.
  • Dalton Guthrie went 4-4 with a run scored early in the week for Lakewood.
  • In the same game, Spencer Howard went six scoreless innings, while striking out six.
  • Jhordany Mezquita went two scoreless innings for Williamsport over the weekend. He allowed no hits and only one walk, while five of his six outs came via the strikeout.

The Good

  • The good news is top prospect Sixto Sanchez is throwing again, as Matt Gelb of The Athletic reported.
  • No. 4 prospect Adam Haseley continues his offensive dominance. Between Clearwater and Reading, he’s hitting .306 with eight home runs, five triples, 17 doubles and 49 RBIs.
  • No. 6 prospect Mickey Moniak is having the hottest streak of his young career. He’s hitting .368 in his last 10 games and .326 in 12 games in August.
  • No. 8 prospect Ranger Suarez continues his solid season with a combined ERA of 2.89 between Reading and Lehigh Valley. My favorite stat is that he’s only allowed four home runs in 106 innings.
  • No. 9 prospect Enyel De Los Santos is also dazzling for Lehigh Valley with his 2.51 ERA. I expect him to become a bullpen piece for Philadelphia in September.
  • Cole Irvin, the third IronPigs ace, is also doing well with his 2.85 ERA in 23 starts.
  • No. 14 prospect Luis Garcia is still raking with his .364 average in rookie ball.
  • No. 20 prospect David Parkinson continues to be lights out with a 1.51 ERA between Lakewood and Clearwater. Opponents are hitting .204 against him and he has a WHIP of 1.02.
  • No. 22 prospect Kyle Dohy continues to be a great option out of the ‘pen with an ERA of 1.73 across three levels. Opponents are hitting .147 off of him and he has 99 strikeouts in 57.1 innings.
  • No. 25 prospect Dominic Pipkin has a 2.61 ERA in rookie ball.

The Bad

  • Despite his nice outing. Adonis Media still has 4.63 ERA for Clearwater. Not what you want from your No. 3 prospect.
  • No. 7 prospect Jhailyn Ortiz has started to struggle with a .222 average. He’s struck out 119 times in 91 games.
