Phillies Top Catching Prospect, Logan Moore, Has Locked Into A .276 Batting Average Over His Last 200 At Bats

Left handed hitting catchers are a rare commodity. Logan Moore is the only exclusive left handed hitting catcher in the Dominican Winter League and one who has hit .276 over his last 203 at bats with three homers and 41 RBI’s including his time with AAA Lehigh Valley.

Quickly becoming a top Phillies catching prospect, Moore has become a consistent .276 hitter.  In his last 203 at bats, he hit .276 in 134 at bats in AAA, .275 in 51 at bats in the Dominican Winter League regular season and after going g 1 for 3 with an rbi last night  is hitting .278 in the DWL semi-finals.

We all know that Moore threw out over 50 percent of base stealers combined last season with Reading and Lehigh Valley last season.

Now, in the DWL he has turned into a winning catcher.  In his 21 starts in offseason ball his catcher’s won-loss record is an amazing 17-4.  His team, los Tigres del Licey, has already qualified for the DWL Finals with still 5 games to go in the 18 game, round-robin, semi-finals.

But it has been the development of Moore’s bat that has especially caught our attention in his most recent 203 at bats.  He was even better against right handed pitchers during the regular DWL season hitting .300. going 9 for 30 with two homers.

He has also shown his catcher’s speed on the bases in the DWL with two triples and five doubles.

We also talked about his pitch framing in a previous post.  Last night four of the nine strikeouts Moore caught were called strikeouts.

Moore has been rewarded with an invite to the major league camp for pitchers and catchers workouts starting on February 18th.  He has earned it.

From last night’s game, watch Moore’s rbi single, HERE, and his framing of a called third strike, HERE.
