Phils Prospect Lisalberto Bonilla Footage

Dominican born right-hander Lisalberto Bonilla took great strides in the Phillies developmental system during the 2011 season. As hurlers like Justin De Fratus, Julio Rodriguez, Jesse Biddle and Trevor May excelled on the mound and proved worthy of their high prospect rankings within the organization, they were joined by a fast rising star with great control and a solid repertoire.

Bonilla sports a fastball that regularly reaches the mid-90's as well as a great change up and an always-improving slider.

Signed by the Phillies in 2008, Bonilla made his professional debut with the Dominican Summer League Phillies the following year, posting a 6-2 record with a 1.41 ERA and a .189 batting average against in 11 games, all starts.

In 2010, Bonilla split his season with the Gulf Coast League Phillies and the short season Williamsport Crosscutters. In 16 combined games, Bonilla went 3-4 with a 3.99 ERA.

The 6-feet-1-inch 170-pound Bonilla began the 2011 season in extended spring training, but joined the Class-A Lakewood BlueClaws in time to earn a spot on the South Atlantic League mid-season All-Star team. Overall, Bonilla posted a 4-5 record with a 2.80 ERA with 95 strike outs in 106 innings. The 21-year-old appeared in 26 games, 15 of which were starts.

Late in the 2011 regular season, Bonilla was ranked among the Phillies' top 20 prospects in a survey of minor league experts conducted by The Reading Eagle.

The native of Samana, DR has participated in the Florida Instructional League following each of the past two seasons.

Below is some exclusive footage of Lisalberto in action this past season.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

The call to O'Hoppe was extremely welcome as the 20-year-old had been staying as active as he possibly could, working out with other players that have been been waiting out quarantine due to the current pandemic at his home on Long Island.  However, he had been very eager to step back onto an actual baseball field. "I just hope I can play soon.  Where ever that is or whatever form that is, that'd be awesom
