Ohfer-Roll Still On Top

Are you ready for your regularly scheduled Jimmy Rollins/lead off hitter reflections? Jelly-Roll's "ohfers" are killing the team. Rollins was hitless in his 6th straight game, after going 0-for-5 on Tuesday in Atlanta. Here is a look at game results when Rollins plays and hits successfully in a game vs. when Rollins plays and goes 0-for-...

Phillies record when Rollins has at least one hit...28-13 (.682 winning pct)
Phillies record when Rollins does not have a hit...7-19 (.269 winning pct)


Rollins is batting .115 (7-for-61) in his last 14 games. The team is 4-10 in those games.

The Pirates traded Eric Hinske to the Yankees on Tuesday for two minor leaguers. Hinske is best known to Philadelphia phans as the batter who struck out for the final out of the 2008 World Series. Those of you who were looking forward to seeing Hinske and the Pirates visit Citizens Bank Park over the weekend of July 10-12 and offering him a great welcome, may now have to wait until the 2009 World Series for Hinske to return.

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual.
