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.
