Logan Moore is proving he just might be the best catching prospect in the Phillies organization.

Last night in Santo Domingo D.R. for Los Tigres del Licey  the 25-year old went 2 for 4 with three runs scored including his second triple in the DWL playoffs.

For Moore, it was his third triple in his 75 at bats in the DWL including the regular season.

He has put up some interesting numbers in the offseason league while hitting .280 combined in the regular and post seasons so far for Licey.  He has gone 21 for 75 with 5 doubles, three triples and two homers for 16 runs scored and 16 runs batted in.

Most impressively his one triple for every 25 at bats is the highest triple rate of any player in offseason baseball with at least 75 at bats.

It has been said that players who hit a lot of doubles could be a sign of power potential.  But to be a leader in triples, as Moore is, shows speed on the bases. And as they say “especially for a catcher.”

Last season slap-hitter Ben Revere led the Phillies with six triples in 366 at bats.  In over 500 at bats combined in 2015 the Phillies two catchers Ruiz and Rupp hit one triple each.

You can “watch” Moore’s three triples in the DWL:  HERE, HERE and from last night’s game HERE.

Watch Moore show more speed on the bases when he tags up from third and scores on a sacrifice fly last night,  HERE.  And beats out a ground ball for an infield hit, HERE.

Moore’s Licey Tigers team has clinched one of the two spots in the DWL Finals with only two game remaining in the round robin qualifying semi-finals.
