The Phillies have a few major league prospects with the Clearwater Threshers. But it is clear Zach Green is one of them and might be the best of the bunch.
His position remains to be seen but I would like to see him play second base some day. Wouldn’t it be nice see a power hitter turning a double play at second base for a change. Give me a future major league infield of Franco at third , Crawford at short, Green at second and Tommy Joseph at first and I will give you some winning baseball. Oh well! It’s nice to dream.
Today was the regular Wednesday day game at Bright House and the Threshers finished off the first half part of the Florida State League with an 11-4 win over the Lakeland Flying Tigers. They finished up ten games over .500 at 39-29 for the second best record in the league.
Green finished up the first half going 5 for 11 with a homer and five RBI’s combined in Tuesday’s night game and Wednesday’s afternoon game.
Zach finished up the first half with eight homers and 38 RBIs in only 57 games and slashed at .281/.339/.462 for an .801 OPS. after his strong finish in the last two games of the first half.
Would like to see Green’s bat hitting at AA Reading sooner than later. It would be must see MiLB-TV. The 22-year- old’s bat could the missing link in a future Phillies lineup.
