This afternoon, Mickey Moniak showed why fans might want to get excited about the young centerfielder, despite an 0-for-12 start.

His three-run home over the left-field porch was the first of his big-league career, a bullet hit at 103.9 mph.

Moniak’s cold start was reminiscent of another highly-touted Phillies prospect. Rhys Hoskins also started his career 0-for-12 with two walks before slicing a single to right, then hitting a home run to left in the next game.
