As you know I like watching videos of Phillies organization prospects and lots of them.
But one video shot last night in three minutes and 29 second best represents the future of the Phillies than another other one I have seen or placed on Baseball Betsy’s website so far this season.
It was a video of Reading’s Jorge Alfaro, Dylan Cozens and Rhys Hoskins going back to back to back deep in the fifth inning in Akron, Ohio. Watch HERE.
Alfaro hit a three-run homer to left, followed by solo homers by Cozens to center and Hoskins to right.
The three long balls yesterday each went to a different field of play and represented what kind of baseball the Phillies could be playing in the near future.
As I have blogged in the past move about moving Hoskins to left to go with Cozens in right and the Phillies have the corner outfield situation solved for many years into the future. Alfaro is no doubt the catcher of the future.
Keep Maikel Franco at third and Tommy Joseph at first and the Phillies have a power ladened lineup for many years into the future.
I also like to browse on the MiLB.com, the latest Top Five hitting and pitching categories at the AAA, AA, A+ and A- levels in minor league baseball.
The Phillies are the o at any level of minor leagues baseball to have two of five players on a level home run leader board. Cozens leads AA with 16 homers and Hoskins is tied for third with 13 homers. Cozens is tied for second in homers in all of the minor leagues trailing only Peter O’Brien of the AAA, Reno Aces, who has 17 homers.
Without a doubt the Reading Fightin Phils are the team to watch in the Phillies organization. Especially after just finishing watching the Cubs club the Phillies 8-1. All the Phillies could muster in the game were three hits! Three lousy hits! But help is on the way as we saw in the video above where Reading bats hits three homers in a row last night.
