De Los Santos to represent Phillies at Futures Game

The rosters for the 2018 MLB All-Star Futures Game were released on Friday and this year's lone Phillies representative is slated to be Triple-A All-Star pitcher Enyel De Los Santos.

De Los Santos, 22, has been remarkable all season long with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, posting a 9-3 record with a league leading 1.83 ERA and an 8.2 K/9 mark through 16 starts. 

The six-foot-three 175-pound right-hander was acquired last off-season from San Diego in a trade for Freddy Galvis.

The Dominican native was named to the World roster, which will be managed by David Ortiz with Francisco Cordero acting as the squad's pitching coach. 

The game is set for Sunday, July 15th and will be played at Nationals Park in Washington, DC.

In recent years, individuals that played in or attended the All-Star Futures Game have been permitted to skip their league's All-Star events in order to get some time off over the break.  The Futures event, however, typically occurs in the same week, before minor league All-Star Games.  The Triple-A All-Star Game is prior to the Futures Game, taking place on the previous Wednesday.  It's unclear if De Los Santos, who was voted in as the International League team's starting pitcher, will make the Triple-A All-Star trip to Columbus, OH, but the Phillies will likely prefer him to pass on one of these exhibitions. 

Last year the Phillies were represented in the Futures Game by current big league contributors Rhys Hoskins and Scott Kingery

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?!

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. 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
