OK, so there’s nothing for teens.  But, it’s good to see that they’re mixing it up a bit.  These are a little different from previous.  Join up!


In other news:

Four players were added to the Phillies 40-man roster today.  The significance is that these players are now protected from the upcoming “Rule 5” draft where they could be selected by another team.  These players are:

Trevor May:  I have the one-time top prospect starting the season in Reading again, but you never know.  He spent the whole season there last year and a good spring might have him in Allentown this April.

Jon Pettibone: We’ve seen him already.  I do expect him to be back with the IronPigs this year right off the bat–and a may have a shot to get some innings in Philly at some point this year.

Ethan Martin:  The RH starter came over from the Dodgers in the Victorino deal.  He ended 2012 throwing very well for the R-Phils (I’m still gonna call them that for now).  I would expect he’d start there again, but that we’ll see him promoted during the season–perhaps when Cloyd gets called up on the Worley-plan.

Zach Collier: The speedy outfielder just finished his stint in the Arizona Fall League and acquitted himself quite well.  He spent last season crushing the ball in Clearwater.  He’s had his share of difficulties with injuries and suspensions, but the potential is there.  I would expect to see him spend the whole season in Reading this year.

  1. Darn, I was writing something and hit the wrong button and everything disappeared. I’ll start over.
    Ten years ago Josh Fields was a star third baseman and star quarterback at Oklahoma State University. He was an all Big 12 conference player for the OSU baseball team and was the first QB in school history to pass for over 3,000 yards in a single season for the OSU football team. In 2004, he signed with the Chicago White Sox after being drafted in the 1st round, 18th overall, of the MLB draft. That was 2 picks after Toronto selected former Ironpigs pitcher David Purcey and 3 picks before the Phillies selected Greg Golson. By 2008 Fields was playing 3B for the White Sox where he hit .244 with 23 HR. In 2009 he was at third base when Mark Buehrle threw a perfect game, defeating Tampa Bay 5-0. Four of those 5 runs came in the 2nd inning on a Josh Fields grand slam. After the 2009 season Josh was traded to Kansas City and he bounced around with different organizations since then, including a brief stint in Japan. He played for Albuquerque in the PCL in 2012 and hit .322 with 13 HR and 71 RBI. His OBP was an impressive .392 and his SLG was .488.
    The Phillies signed Fields to a minor league contract today with an invitation to spring training. While his goal is obviously to make the Phillies out of spring training, he would be a welcome addition to the Ironpigs for the 2013 season.
