Third baseman Alec Bohm sat out this most recent week of the minor-league season due to an injury he suffered as a member of the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
Demoted by the Phillies on Aug. 22, Bohm last played for Lehigh Valley on Aug. 29. The IronPigs went 3-3 in their series against Syracuse at Coca-Cola Park in his absence.
Lehigh Valley is now 48-58 on the season; Double-A Reading is 44-64; High-A Jersey Shore is 49-57; Low-A Clearwater is 47-56; the Florida Complex League Phillies are 21-11.
Bohm deals with injury
Bohm did not play at all in the IronPigs’ six games against the Syracuse Mets as he dealt with an injury. Phillies president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday that the 25-year-old is dealing with a left hand injury and would be visiting a doctor, according to Matt Gelb of The Athletic.
The injury occured last Sunday, Aug. 29, when he was hit by a pitch against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Bohm initially stayed in the game, but he was later removed.
The former first-round pick had been 7-for-22 with two doubles since being sent down.
O’Hoppe makes good first impression
21-year-old catcher Logan O’Hoppe made the most of his first full week with Reading, posting an excellent offensive performance in five games at Hartford.
After being sent to the Fightins from Jersey Shore on Aug. 25, he played three games in Portland and recorded at least one hit in each of them. Moving into this past week, O’Hoppe had at least one hit in his first four games against the Yard Goats, tallying two three-hit games. He snapped his seven-game Fightins and nine-game minors hitting streak on Sunday, but still reached base by getting hit with a pitch.
O’Hoppe went 9-for-19 with two home runs against Hartford, and he’s gone 13-for-32 with three homers and a double in eight Double-A games.
McGarry dominates High-A debut
Right-hander Griff McGarry threw an electric five innings in his High-A debut on Friday, allowing two hits striking out nine in a 4-0 BlueClaws win over Aberdeen at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium.
McGarry was promoted to Jersey Shore from Clearwater on Thursday along with fellow prospects Johan Rojas and Luis García. The 22-year-old was drafted in the fifth round this summer. He had struck out 22 batters over 11 innings in five appearances for the Threshers before he was called up.
Muzziotti returns to Clearwater
Outfielder Simon Muzziotti has returned off the restricted list to play for Clearwater after having visa issues for most of the year. Following his first game in the FCL this season, the 22-year-old was sent to Low-A on Thursday.
In three games with the Threshers, Muzziotti went 3-for-10 with a triple as he tries to make up for his lost time away from the organization.
