Of late Class A Lakewood has been led by pitcher Kyle Glogoski.  The native New Zealander has a 3-1 record with a 0.96 ERA, a .123 batting average against and a 15.9 K/9 mark in six appearances.  Last weekend I interview the promising 20-year-old.  Click here to listen to that interview.

Corner infielder Luke Miller has performed very well in seven games since joining the BlueClaws.  The 22-year-old has tallied a .308 batting average with a double, a home run, four RBI and four walks.  Miller, 22, was the Phillies' 22nd round draft choice last year out of Indiana. 

Left-hander Ethan Lindow had a remarkable May, posting a 2.96 ERA and a .221 batting average against in six appearances.  The Georgia native was a 5th round draft pick in 2017 by the Phillies.  Overall with the BlueClaws, the 20-year-old sports a 1-2 record with a 3.27 ERA and a 9.8 K/9 mark in 11 games.

Switch-hitting catcher Rafael Marchan has been a reliable offensive contributor this year for Lakewood.  The 20-year-old Venezuela native has notched a .306 average with eight doubles and seven RBI in 23 games. 


For Class A Advanced Clearwater, last year's first round draft pick Alec Bohm has been impressive since joining the team.  The 22-year-old righty batter is fresh off a 10-game hitting streak and is batting .325 with eight doubles, two triples, three home runs in 29 games.  Bohm has played both first base and third base for the Threshers.

Center fielder Simon Muzziotti has been solid on offense with the Threshers as well.  Through 39 games, the 20-year-old lefty batter sports s .306 average with a pair of round trippers, 15 RBI and seven steals.  Heading into Sunday, the Venezuela native had notched six multi-hit games in his last 10 contests.

Lefty starter Damon Jones has remained dominant for the Threshers, collecting a 3-3 record with a 1.37 ERA, a .173 batting average against along with a league-best 80 K's in 10 starts.  Jones was an 18th round pick in 2017 out of Washington State.  I recently interviewed the 24-year-old.  Click here to read that post.

With Double-A Reading, outfielder Mickey Moniak has turned things on, posting a .301 batting average in 29 games since the end of April.  Moniak, a 21-year-old lefty batter, was the top overall draft pick in 2016.

Righty reliever Addison Russ has been very solid for Reading.  The 24-year-old boasts a 1.66 ERA with seven saves in nine chances and a 12.9 K/9 mark in 22 outings in the Eastern League.  Russ was the Phils' 19th round pick in 2017 out of Houston Baptist.

Right-handed pitching prospect Adonis Medina  has strung together three good outings, going 3-0 with a 1.15 ERA in those starts with Reading.  Overall, the Dominican Republic native has a 3-2 record with a 3.92 ERA, a .243 opponents' average and a 6.4 K/9 mark in nine starts this season for the Fightin Phils.


At the Triple-A level catcher Deivi Grullon has continued his exciting season, as he ranks fourth in the league in hitting with a .344 average.  Additionally, the 23-year-old righty batter has nine homers with 38 RBI in 43 games with the IronPigs.

Outfielder Lane Adams leads the IronPigs in homers with 11.  The 29-year-old right-handed hitter has a .285/.344/.553 slash line in 47 games this season.  Adams signed as a free agent with the Phillies over the off-season.
