RHP Kyle Glogoski continues to shine for BlueClaws

Right-hander Kyle Glogoski has been nothing short of outstanding since joining the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws earlier this month.  Using deception and a solid repertoire, the six-foot-two 183 pounder has tallied a 2-1 record with a 0.55 ERA and a .123 batting average against in five outings in the South Atlantic League.

On Saturday, the talented 20-year-old retired the first 12 batters he faced against the White Sox affiliate Kannapolis Intimidators.  In five innings of work, Glogoski cruised, striking out 11 and allowing no walks or runs while surrendering just two hits.

"He was outstanding," said Lakewood manager Mike Micucci following Saturday's match up.  "The fastball was really electric and had a lot of jump to it, you know, a lot of ride going there, so he was able to elevate the ball and get a lot of swings elevated in the zone and get some chases up there as well.  And I think he did a good job especially the second time through or as he got deeper in the game, kind of switching up a little bit and then starting to lead guys off with the breaking ball and put guys away.  And then he mixed all his pitches and kept them off balance."

Glogoski, a native of New Zealand, signed with the Phillies as an international free agent in January of 2018.  In 10 appearances last year with the rookie level Gulf Coast League Phillies West team, he sported a 4-0 record with a 2.31 ERA a .204 opponents' average and a 10.8 K/9 mark.  He opened this season in extended spring training.

Following his tremendous effort against Kannapolis, I spoke with Kyle about his success in the Sally League, choosing the Phillies as his professional destination and much more.  Normally, I would transcribe quotes, but let's be honest, the New Zealand accent is cool and wouldn't you prefer to hear his voice?  I knew you would.  Head on over to Patreon.com/PhoulBallz for the complete audio and while you're there please consider becoming a subscribing patron that supports this coverage.

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

Prospect Nation 2012: #1 RHP Trevor May

With a massively impressive campaign in 2011 for the Class A Advanced Clearwater Threshers, right-handed starting pitcher Trevor May locked down his spot as Philadelphia's top prospect and is on the fast track toward the big leagues. He is the reigning Paul Owens Award winner, given to the top pitcher and player in the Phillies' developmental system each year. In 27 starts with the Threshers in 2011, May posted a 10-8 record with a 3.63 ERA, while striking out a Florida State League leading 208 batters in 151 1/3 innings. He also held opposing hitters to a .221 average. The Phillies' 4th round draft pick from 2008, May earned the win in the 50th annual Florida State League All-Star Game at Bright House Field last year. He also was twice named FSL Pitcher of the Week and earned Phillies Minor League Pitcher of the Month honors for June. After signing with Philadelphia, May helped lead the rookie level Gulf Coast League Phillies to a championship in 2008. In 5 regular
