Casimiro has put up a remarkable record over the last 13 month. From June 26 last year to last night, Cassie had started 26 games. During this time he went 7-2 for Lakewood in 12 starts the second of last season and 7-5 with the Threshers in 14 starts the first half of this season for a 14-7 overall record.
Tromp has become one of the most powerful bats in the Phillies system. The 22-year-old had hit 10 homers with Lakewood and now 2 homers with the Threshers after his call-up seven games ago. Only Reading’s Dylan Cozens, Rhys Hoskins, and Jake Fox and Lakewood’s Jose Pujols have hit more home runs in the Phillies system this season.
Last night, Casimiro and Tromp put the Threshers on their backs to break-up a four game losing streak and carried them to victory.
