Phillies Prospect Notes

  • -          Jesse Biddle and Maikel Franco of the Reading Fightin’ Phils will represent the Phillies organization at the MLB Futures Game on July 14.
  • -          This year Franco has been tearing the cover off the ball with a .321 average 19 home runs and 60 RBIs at Single A Clearwater and Double A Reading.
  • -          Darin Ruf has put together a decent season with a .271 average and 7 homeruns. He would be a suitable replacement for Delmon Young whenever the Phillies decide to call Ruf up.
  • -          Tommy Joseph has had concussion issues since he suffered a concussion on May 4th. He has been on and off the DL since then and is now with Advanced A Clearwater.
  • -          The Phillies future third baseman, Cody Asche, has had a good season and in his past ten games is batting .297 with 6 RBIs.
  • -          19 year old Mitch Gueller has started his season well with the Crosscutters. In 2 starts he has only given up 2 earned runs and has 8 strikeouts in 10 innings.
  • -          Aaron Altherr, 22, is having a nice season in Clearwater. A .298 average, 8 home runs, and 14 stolen bases has the 20th ranked Phillies prospect on the rise.
  • -          Tyler Cloyd after he was sent down to Lehigh Valley has struggled in 2 starts. He has given up 13 runs and 17 hits in 9.2 innings.
