2018 Phillies Prospect Countdown: #19 RHP Seranthony Dominguez

Dominican native Seranthony Dominguez is a talented hurler that deserves recognition among the Phillies top pitching prospects.

After signing with the Phillies at age 17 in 2012, the six-foot-one 185-pound righty would make his pro debut that   year with the Dominican Summer League Phillies.  He spent two seasons there, tallying an 8-10 record with two shutouts and a 3.20 ERA in 29 outings (24 starts).

He would debut stateside in 2014 with the Rookie level short-season Gulf Coast League Phillies, spending two seasons there.  In 16 appearances, Dominguez posted a 3-3 record with a 2.94 ERA.

In 2016, Dominguez opened the season in extended spring training and made three starts for short-season Class A Williamsport.  He would sport a 1-1 record with a 2.12 ERA and a .136 batting average against with the Crosscutters before a promotion to Class A Lakewood.

With the BlueClaws, Dominguez would notch a 5-2 record with a 2.43 ERA, a .202 BAA and a 9.3 K/9 mark in 10 starts.

Dominguez opened the 2017 campaign with the Class A Advanced Clearwater Threshers, where he was honored as a mid-season All-Star.  He would miss roughly two months in the middle of the season with a reported shoulder injury, but posted good numbers overall.  In 15 games (13 starts) for the Threshers, Dominguez had a 4-4 record with a 3.61 ERA, .230 BAA and a 10.8 K/9 mark. 

While his walk rate has been a concern at times during his time in the minors, his considerable strike out numbers are a big plus for Dominguez.

The 23-year-old was added to the Phillies' 40-man roster this off-season in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

With an announced move to the bullpen, it's likely Dominguez should get opportunities to close.  Dominguez's arsenal features a very good fastball that ranges from 96-99 MPH, a wipe out breaking pitch that dives away from righty hitters with late movement along with a solid change up. 

The Phillies see a bright future for Dominguez in the late innings.  Look for him to open 2018 as part of the Double-A Reading roster with the potential to rely on his power arm and be a quickly paced mover in the upper levels of the sport.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice.

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'

Catching prospect O'Hoppe tabbed to join Phillies

Logan O'Hoppe, image- Jay Floyd Please consider supporting my work and via my Patreon page .  For a small monthly fee, your patronage will get you exclusive interviews and other prospect related material as well as early access to all of my other content such as this feature.  Thank you.   On Friday, the Phillies added a pair of catchers to their 2020 player pool.  Minor leaguers Logan O'Hoppe (pronounced Oh-HOP-ee) and Henri Lartigue arrived in Philadelphia to help catch bullpen sessions for the team's collection of approximately 30 pitchers. 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
