Edubray Ramos looked like he belongs as one of the top relief pitching prospects in baseball Saturday night in the Arizona Fall League Stars game. He came on in the ninth inning and struck out the only two batters he faced. His West team defeated the East 8-3.
Ramos needed only 11 pitches to pick up his two swinging strikeouts. He threw seven fastballs ranging from 94 to 96 mph. His first strikeout came on a 94 mph fastball and his second was on an 85 mph slider.
He had good command throwing 9 strikes and two balls. According to Gameday, he posted a 2″-4″ break on his fastballs and a 7″-9″ break on his sliders. His pitch speed ranged from the 96 mph fastball to a 79 mph slider.
Playing for the Sydney Blue Sox in the Australian Baseball League, first baseman Rhys Hoskins had his second big weekend in a row. He went 5 for 17 with a home run, two doubles and four RBIs in four games this weekend.
In his last eight games over his last two weekends in the ABL, he is hitting .344 with two homers and ten RBIs. He has hit a double in six of his last eight games. He leads the ABL in doubles with eight after the first eleven games of the season.
Hoskins home run for the Blue Sox came in the top of the fourth inning of Sunday’s game. You can watch his long ball HERE.
Ramos and Hoskins were without a doubt the top Phillies Fall Ball players from this weekend.
