We’re keeping our eye on the prospects across the board within the Phillies farm system. And with about six weeks into the baseball season, we’re going deep into the Phillies minor league teams with Matt Winkelman (@Matt_Winkelman) from PhilliesMinorThoughts.com and CrashburnAlley.com.
But first on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Flyers news and notes: Carter Hart wins an award and Jake Voracek is injured. (4:30)
2. Sixers draft lottery scenarios and what Furkan Korkmaz may bring to the team this coming season. (13:00)
3. TAKE IT or LEAVE IT: Phillies OF Aaron Altherr is one of the core pieces of the Phillies future team. (26:15)
Our Listener Feedback this week: we read a kind review of the show, responded to some Eagles offensive line and running back talk, and whether Phillies manager Pete Mackanin is the guy to take the Phillies to the next level and into the playoffs. (31:15)
And then what we’re throwing down on the Table this week is an interview with one of our favorite Phillies farm system writers and analysts, Matt Winkelman. First, we discuss J.P. Crawford’s season, his slump and whether us fans should truly worry. Another guy who has run into some trouble this season is Dylan Cozens who we get into in terms of his development. Might Andrew Pullin get to the majors, and how does the future of second base look within the farm system? Relief pitcher Mark Appel was also a topic of discussion as well as whether or not the Phillies decide to protect Carlos Tocci in the Rule 5 Draft. All of this plus much more on this week’s show and interview! (44:10)
