It’s time for another Arizona Fall League update. You can, as always, check the previous updates by checking the c
ategory page along the right side, or here.
Zach Collier is playing very well in Arizona, now 10-29. He had three hits on Tuesday and is 6-10 in his last three games. His Tuesday game included three RBIs as well.
Jay Johnson, since allowing four runs in 1/3 of an inning last Wednesday, has thrown two scoreless innings. So far, in 3.2 Arizona innings, he’s allowed five runs on seven hits but struck out eight. Lefties are 2-7 against him, but have struck out in all five of their outs.
Tyler Knigge has thrown twice this week, allowing a run in 2/3 of an inning (two walks) on Saturday and he tossed a scoreless inning on Tuesday. He’s allowed five runs in five innings so far.
Colby Shreve has settled in, throwing three scoreless innings since our last update, the last two being perfect innings. He’s allowed just one run on four hits in 6.2 innings so far.
Among the Phillies players down there, Cody Asche is 11-39 and homered last Thursday (off Rockies prospect, and Fordham alum Cory Riordan)…Tommy Joseph has played just once since our last update, going 0-4 on Friday, and he’s 2-16 so far…Kyle Simon has started three times, most recently on Monday, throwing three scoreless innings with three strikeouts. That makes six innings of one run ball after he gave up seven ER in 1/3 of an inning in his debut.
The former BlueClaws with other organizations:
Jonathan Singleton is 12-47 in Arizona and has cooled off a bit since hitting safely in his first five games (7-19). He did add his second home run on Friday (off Rays prospect Kirby Yates).
Finally, Jarred Cosart had a tough outing in his most recent start on Saturday, allowing seven runs (three earned) in 2/3 of an inning. He gave up four hits and walked three in what was a 16-10 defeat. Cosart has allowed seven ER in eight innings so far.
