It’s always important to get off to a strong start. This is what Phillies prospects, first baseman Rhys Hoskins and pitcher Seranthony Dominguez, did in April. They are my minor league position and pitcher players of the month in the farm system.
The 24-year-old Hoskins was a no brainer. In April he led the International League for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs in OPS, 1.o63, slugging, .636, home runs, 6 and total bases, 49. He slashed at .338/.427./636. He finished the month on base for 22 straight games.
Tom Housenick of the Allentown Morning Call did an interesting story about Hoskins on Sunday, Read HERE.
The Phillies could not ask anymore from Hoskins yet he still remains at AAA.
Seranthony Dominguez was bumped from his first start for the Clearwater Threshers by rehabbing Zach Eflin. He received a two inning “hold” in the game coming in for Eflin. Then, in his next threes starts he went 2-0.
He has put up amazing numbers in the month over 19 innings: ERA, 0.95, WHIP, 0.74, 9 hits, 2 earned runs, 6 walks, 25 strikeouts, batting average against .145.
Rhys Hoskins and Seranthony Dominguez are my “Phillies Minor League Players Of The Month for April”
