I have a reason to ask this, this player is the son of someone I know and I just was curious about what to think. I will give the information on who it is later, he is not and has never been on the Phils.
Minor league Pitcher:
Drafted in the 5th round in 2016. Son of a former player who had 13 year career in the minors with about 50 games in the majors as a starting pitcher / reliever about evenly split.
Age 20 - 2016 Rookie League, gets rocked in 6 innings (meaningless)
Age 21 - 2017 Low A - Starting P - 44 innings, 0.82 ERA, 7.6K/9, 1.6BB/9
Age 21 - 2017 A - Starting P - 17 innings, just about the same as above
Arm injury, about 1 year rehab
Age 22 - 2018 A - 14 games, 6 starting. 2.77 ERA, 9.0K/9, 3.0BB/9]
Age 22 - 2018 A+ - 9 games, 5 starts, bad stats in 34 innings.
Age 23 - 2019 A+ - Moved to bullpen, 28 games, 43 innings, 3.56 ERA, 9.6K/9, 4.0BB/9
So his arm injury must have persisted through 2019 to a degree, it wiped out half of 2017 and 2018. Seems like a guy who might be ready to move fast, getting old, but he was hurt. He was an All Star this year in the A+ league so I am guessing he did very well in the 1st half and less well in 2nd half, may have gotten hurt again.
Career wise he still has solid numbers (3.48 ERA in 186 innings, 1.315 WHIP, 8.1 K/9) but he is getting old for his league obviously. If he can get to AA next year and maybe even get a shot a AAA seems like he might have a shot.
Our minor league guys, what do you think? Kid still have a shot if he can stay healthy or has his time slipped away probably?
