Re: 2022 Philadelphia Phillies general thread

Muzziotti will be OK.
He's a guy who might have gotten a longer look this spring if not for what was once a surplus of questionable outfielders.
As Winkelman notes, Muzziotti was ahead of Moniak in the prospect rankings until Moniak's red-hot spring.

And, while a fifth outfielder is far from the most significant member of the roster, the Phillies were planning to do some defensive maneuvers with Vierling and Moniak both playing in later innings while ahead. One in CF, one in LF.

Re: 2022 Philadelphia Phillies general thread

(I put this in the MLB General Thread as a response, but I'm putting it here too, to keep Phillies stuff in one place.) Jim Salisbury @JSalisburyNBCS Mickey Moniak indeed has a fracture in his right hand, a source confirms. No further details. Was hit by a pitch yesterday. Initial x-rays were clean...

Nope. Jim Salisbury @JSalisburyNBCS Mickey Moniak indeed has a fracture in his right hand, a source confirms. No further details. Was hit by a pitch yesterday. Initial x-rays were clean Devastating for the kid. He was about to get an extended opportunity at playing time coming off a red-hot spring. ...

Re: 2022 Predictions Thread

Just about every team in the game this year will lose at least one important starter or two this season. The Mets are already down Scherzer and Degrom; The RSox are down Sale; on and on it will go. Depth will be the issue for all of the clubs. For the Phillies, who is the next guy up when it happen...

So, the Phillies decided to recall catcher Rafael Marchan and place him on the 60-day IL (hamstring) to clear a spot for Bryson Stott.

Re: 2022 Philadelphia Phillies general thread

Matt Winkelman @Matt_Winkelman There is a real chance this is a legitimately good team. I think their weaknesses have been overblown and meme-ified. I think their strengths have been largely underrated, and I think that given their allocated resources, their ability to improve via trade is underrate...

Re: 2022 Predictions Thread

In my mind, no reason to be pessimistic about Wheeler. Obviously, if it goes sideways, that changes everything. But can't reasonably predict that. I see Suarez as a 3, Gibson as a 4 and Eflin as a 5. Maybe some interchangeability there, and it's doubtful they get much more than 150 IP from Suarez, w...
