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.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home grown tal
