Take out one bad outing and Phillies top bullpen prospect Edubray Ramos had an outstanding Arizona Fall League season. The AFL season ended on Thursday.
In eight of Ramos’ nine AFL appearances including the Stars game, Ramos picked up two saves over 9.1 innings giving up only 2 earned runs, 7 hits, 13 strikeouts and had no walks. Can’t beat that strikeout to walk ratio and walks/hits to innings pitched ratio.
In his one bad AFL outing he did give up seven hits and six runs with a strike out but no walks in one inning of relief.
Ramos’ AFL numbers compare favorably to Ken Giles’ AFL numbers back in 2013. Giles also had one bad outing and struck out two in the Stars game. The big difference was that Giles walked eight in his 10.1 AFL innings excluding the Stars game.
Now on the Phillies website all the talk is about its current closer Ken Giles drawing interest from many other major league teams READ HERE. It would seem only logical that Edubray Ramos is being groomed to take over as the Phillies closer of the future maybe sooner than later.
Rhys Hoskins continues his hot streak in the Australian Baseball League for the Sydney Blue Sox. Friday night he hit his third home run in his last ten games down under. Watch HERE between the 4:00 and 5:00 mark of the game replay. In those ten games Rhys is hitting .359 with 11 RBI’s. He leads the ABL in doubles with 9 in only 15 games so far.
Edubray Ramos and Rhys Hoskins have been two of the top Phillies prospects so far in the offseason leagues.
