Phillies Prospect Logan Moore Is Having a Great Season in the Dominican Winter League, But What Does The Future Hold For Him?

Just as I sat down to write this blog about Logan Moore he hit another home run tonight in winter ball. Watch HERE.  It was his second homer in two nights.  It came in the third inning to tie the game for the Tigres del Licey who went on to win 4-1 in Dominican Winter League action.

Moore is on a roll in the DWL.  In his last nine starts behind the plate his first place Licey team has won them all.  His catcher’s ERA is  just over 2.00 runs and he has thrown out 5 of 12 base stealing attempts in those nine games.

Hitting in his last nine game, his OPS is over .800 going 7 for 30 with 7 walks,  2 doubles, 2 home runs and 9 RBIs.  Just can do any better than that!

The 25-year old has come into his own this season with the bat.  He finished the minor league season strong with the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs hitting a career high .278 at AAA.

Logan has always been a good hitter with runners in scoring position going 5 for 12 in the DWL.

Moore is a favorite of the Licey team. Here are two interviews by the team’s field reporter during the season: see HERE and HERE.

After five seasons in the Phillies organization, Moore is eligible for the Rule Five draft taking place Thursday morning at the Winter MLB Baseball meetings taking in Nashville Tennessee.

Moore along with 23 year old pitcher Ranfi Casimir0 would be my two Rule five picks from the Phillies minor league organization .  Both of them have not been protected by the Phillies even though they have three vacancies on their 40 man roster.

All it would cost any major league organization is $50.000 to draft one of them.  If they would be drafted and do not make the opening day 25-man roster of that team or do not stay with the team all season, they must pass waivers and be offered back to the Phillies for $25,000 a piece.

Whatever happens on Thursday, Baseball Betsy and I wish the best to both Logan Moore and Ranfi Casimiro.  They have provided us with good baseball for the last three years watching them in person and on MiLB-TV.
