Catching Prospect Cameron Rupp Interview

Cameron Rupp is a catching prospect currently playing with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. The righty hitting Rupp was drafted in the third round of the 2010 amateur draft by the Phillies, after his junior season at the University of Texas.

Rupp, who lives in Plano, TX, a suburb of Dallas, was assigned to short-season Williamsport after signing his first professional contract last year. In 55 games with the Crosscutters in the New York-Penn League, Rupp posted a .218 batting average with 5 homeruns and 28 RBI. Following the season, the 22-year-old Rupp participated in the Florida Instructional League.

Off to a slow start, batting .182 through 3 games with Lakewood, Rupp is anxious for the weather and his bat to heat up, as he plans to help the BlueClaws chase a third consecutive South Atlantic League championship this year.

Last week, I spoke with Cameron about his draft process, his new home ballpark, joining the Twitter community and plenty more. Check out the media player below to listen to excerpts of the interview.

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. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

Ryan Madson is acting questionable

I've seen similar types of "poking fun" entries on other Phillies blogs. When this picture came across my desk today, I figured, "Why not...?" Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!
