2022 Phillies Top Prospects Countdown: #17 LHP Kyle Dohy

Several months removed from his big league debut, Kyle Dohy hopes to build on a strong 2021 campaign and return to the top level of the sport to stay.

A 16th round draft selection out of Citrus Community College in 2017, Dohy was quickly signed by the Phils and began his professional career that year in the Class A short-season New York-Penn League.

In 13 appearances with Williamsport that year, as a 20-year-old, Dohy posted a 2-1 record with a 3.60 ERA and a .182 batting average against in 13 appearances.  Additionally, he would strike out 22 and walk 20 in 20 innings.

In 2018, Dohy really stood out, pitching at three levels, and began to draw plenty of attention.  In 24 appearances with Class A Lakewood, Dohy looked nearly untouchable, recording a 3-3 record with seven saves, a 0.80 ERA, a .144 batting average against and an outstanding 16.8 K/9 mark while the BB/9 rate looked much better at 4.5.

Dohy earned a promotion to Class A Advanced Clearwater at the Sally League's All-Star break in June.  His brief stint there was just as successful as the first half of the season had been, as he tallied a 2-1 record with a pair of saves and a 1.64 ERA, striking out 18 and walking three in 11 innings over seven appearances for the Threshers.

The Phillies then promoted the youngster once more and he looked a bit more human out of the bullpen with Double-A Reading for the remainder of the season.  In 18 games Dohy sported a 2-5 record with a save, a 5.56 ERA and a .165 batting average against.  He would strike out 30 and walk 22 over 22 2/3 innings pitched in the Eastern League.

In 2019, Dohy opened the campaign back in Double-A and appeared to have mastered that level.  In six games, he collected a 1-0 record with two saves, a 0.82 ERA, a .059 batting average against and stuck out 22 while walking five in 11 innings of work.  He'd move to Triple-A Lehigh Valley before April was through.

As a member of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Dohy posted a 6-5 record with a save, a 6.19 ERA, a .253 batting average against while striking out 83 and walking 54 in 56 2/3 innings over 41 appearances.

In 2020, the California native opened spring training with the big league team.  Prior to the sport's stoppage due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Dohy appeared in three games, allowing two earned runs, striking out three batters, walking none and hitting one batter in three innings of work. 

Last year, Dohy spent time with Reading and Lehigh Valley, tallying a 4-0 record with a pair of saves, a 2.95 ERA, a .144 batting average against and a 13.7 K/9 mark in 32 combined appearances.  

In spring training action this year, Dohy appeared in three games without allowing a run.

The pitch repertoire for Dohy, who is listed at six-feet-two, 202 pounds, includes a trio of offerings with plus potential.  He features a mid-90's fastball that has touched up to 97 MPH, a premier slider that has a lot of movement and a change up that has been a work in progress at times.

Command has been a area of concern for the 25-year-old, as he averages 6.8 BB/9 in the minors.  It's part of his games that has been a focus for coaches and instructors, as they work with the pitcher to get his mechanics and delivery to be as consistent as possible.

Dohy opened the 2022 season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley once more as he tries to earn his way back to the big leagues with the team that re-signed him as a free agent over the previous off-season.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home grown tal
