Another productive week is in the books for the Philadelphia Phillies farm system. We’ll take a look at how the players performed, but also how the teams stack up with the playoffs approaching.

Records

  • Lehigh Valley IronPigs: 56-61 (eight games back in the International League North)
  • Reading Fightin’ Phils: 71-48 (Lead the Eastern League East by five games)
  • Clearwater Threshers: 60-59 (four games back in the Florida State North)
  • Lakewood Blue Claws: 49-68 (10.5 games back in the South Atlantic Northern division)
  • Williamsport Crosscutters: 22-34 (11 games back in the New York Penn league Pinckney division)

Notable Performances

  • We’ll start this off with Spencer Howard, who dazzled in his latest outing. On Friday, he went six scoreless innings, allowing only three hits and striking out eight.
  • Mickey Moniak went 2-3 with a pair of home runs and three RBIs for Reading on Wednesday. Moniak went 2-5 with two doubles and three RBIs on Saturday. Moniak added a two-run home run on Sunday.
  • Alec Bohm launched a home run on Wednesday, to start what would be a power filled week. Bohm came back on Thursday and went 3-4 with an RBI. Bohm went 2-4 with a home run and two RBIs on Saturday. Bohm finished his week by going 1-4 with a double and two runs scored on Sunday.
  • Bryson Stott went 2-4 on Wednesday in the first game of a doubleheader. He then went 2-3 with a home run on Thursday. Stott went 2-4 with a double on Friday. Stott again went 2-4 with a double and a RBI on Saturday. The 2019 first-round pick then exploded on Sunday, going 2-3 with two home runs and three RBIs. It’s safe to say that the kid has settled in.
  • Ramon Rosso had one of his better starts in Lehigh Valley on Saturday. He went six scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out four.
  • Nick Williams has been tearing it up in Lehigh Valley. He produced all week, but he went off on Sunday, going 3-4 with a home run, double and three RBIs.
  • Simon Muzziotti continued his hot hitting this week, going 2-4 on Monday. Muzziotti then hit his third home run of the year on Tuesday. He then went 2-6 with a double on Saturday.
  • Jose Taveras had a great start for Clearwater on Tuesday. He went seven innings, allowing one run on six hits and one walk. He added three punch-outs.
  • Daniel Brito went 2-3 with a double for Clearwater on Friday.
  • Dalton Guthrie and Matt Kroon had huge games for Clearwater on Saturday. Guthrie went 4-5 with a double, while Kroon went 3-4 with a home run, a triple and three RBIs.

Season Stats

  • Alec Bohm’s productive week brought his Double-A average up to .260 and he saw another uptick in his power numbers. For the season, Bohm is slashing .308/.376/.532 with 19 home runs, 26 doubles, four triples and 71 RBIs in 106 games. 12 off those home runs have come in Reading.
  • Adonis Medina continues his up-and-down season. He has a 4.39 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP in 19 starts. He’s slowly starting to bring his strikeouts per nine innings back, though, as it has increased to 7.1.
  • Bryson Stott’s hot week took him from the Mendoza Line to .275 in Williamsport. For the season, he’s slashing .310/.400/.580 with six home runs in 30 games.
  • Spencer Howard just continues to overwhelm hitters. His ERA now sits at 1.82 in 12 games. He has a 0.79 WHIP and is averaging 12.9 strikeouts per nine innings, compared to only 1.7 walks per nine. That is filthy.
  • Mickey Moniak seems to be struck in the .260-.270 range this season with his average sitting at .264. After his rough start to the season, though, that isn’t so bad. His power numbers have increased though as the season has gone on. Moniak now has 10 home runs, 11 triples and 27 doubles in 104 games. He also has 15 stolen bases.
  • Erik Miller is making short work of hitters in Short Season ball. In 16 innings, he has a 1.13 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP. He’s struck out 22 batters in that time.
  • Simon Muzziotti is hitting .283 with three home runs this year. There’s two numbers that stick out – he has 20 doubles and 20 steals in 94 games. He is also just 20 years old in High-A, so some of those doubles will become home runs as he matures.
  • David Parkinson is continuing his quality season. He has a 3.57 ERA in 19 starts to go along with a 1.18 WHIP.
  • The Phillies third-round pick in this year’s draft, Jamari Baylor, started play for the Rookie Ball team this week. The 18-year-old shortstop is 2-7 in two games and has already scored four runs. He will be an exciting player to watch develop.
