Righty reliever Connor Brogdon is having another stellar season following a campaign last year that saw him post exceptional numbers. 

In 2018, his first full professional season, the six-foot-six 192-pounder tallied a 5-3 record with five saves, a 2.47 ERA, a .228 batting average against and a 10.3 K/9 mark in 31 games (seven starts) with Class A Lakewood.

This year, Brogdon opened the season with Class A Advanced Clearwater, where he posted a 2-0 record, a 1.80 ERA, a .164 batting average against and a 10.4 K/9 mark in 10 contests. 

Since earning a promotion to Double-A Reading, the 24-year-old has been a key contributor out of the team's bullpen.  In 15 appearances, Brogdon sports a 1-1 record with two saves, a 2.66 ERA, a .150 batting average against and a 14.8 K/9 mark. 

A product of Lewis-Clark State, Brogdon was the Phillies' 10th round draft pick in 2017. 

I talked with Connor about his approach with his role, this week's series against division rival Trenton and plenty more.  Head on over to Patreon.com/PhoulBallz and support my work to hear this exclusive interview!

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

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.
