With the 2015 Offseason Leagues regular seasons in the Caribbean ending, one Phillies player has stood out. He is Logan Moore catcher for the Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Winter League. He wins the somewhat prestigious first ever Baseball Ross Phillies Caribbean Player of the Year Award for the 2015 regular Offseason.
The 25-year old had a 2015 regular DWL season to remember:
To wit: In his last 13 starts behind the plate, the Licey Tigers were undefeated at 13-0. Moore played a key role helping them tie for first place in the 50 game regular season. Overall Licey finished the regular season only eight games over .500 at 29-21.
To wit: Moore has hit for the cycle during the last ten game span including two homers, , two doubles, and a triple. Watch one of his homers, HERE. In three of those games he came in as a late inning replacement.
To wit: Over these last ten games in which he appeared his slash line was .348/.516/.783 for a 1.299 OPS. Overall, Moore hit .275 in 51 at bats with a career high .936 OPS in the regular DWL season.
To wit: He hit .438 ( 7 for 16) with runners in scoring position with 11 RBIs appearing in 23 games.
To wit: In a December 16th game with Licey leading 6-5 over the Toros in the bottom of the ninth, Moore made a one-hop tag at the plate for the second out on a throw from right field to help preserve the win. Watch HERE. In that game he went two for three with a triple and a double. He scored two runs and drove in three more runs in that game.
To wit: Moore’s catcher’s ERA was around 2.00 in his last 13 starts.
We will be watching to see if Logan Moore gets a chance to play in major league spring training games. He has shown in the DWL he can hit, hit with power, run, throw and field. He has earned a shot to show what he can do in big league games!
