We keep working our way through the Phillies farm system based this time on home runs and RBIs. In Saturday’s Arizona Fall League’s All Star Game, Phillies top left field prospect, Austin Listi, drove in four runs including a three-run homer. Watch his homer HERE. (Scroll down the page until you get to the Phillies section.) He is one of the top Phillies minor league power performer which takes into count home runs and RBIs in 2018.
Additionally, Listi hit nine homers for the Clearwater Threshers and nine more round trippers with the Reading Fightin Phils. Before he was called up to AA, Listi was hitting .344 with an OPS of 1.013 for the Threshers. He finished up the minor league regular season hitting a combined .312 with an OPS .915 combined with Clearwater and Reading. Watch five of his home runs with Clearwater, HERE.
Listi likes to hit when the All Star games lights go on! In the FSL All Star game back in June, he had three RBIs. Including his 7 RBIs in two All Star games, Listi has driven in 94 runs in 140 games this season to date.
First baseman Darick Hall has hit 29 home runs and has driven in 96 runs this season in 140 games with stops, like Listi, at Clearwater, Reading and now with Scottsdale in the AFL. Watch Hall’s first five homers for Clearwater to start the 2018 season, HERE.
Austin Listi and Darick Hall should get invites to the Phillies major league spring training camp in 2019. They have hit a combined 48 home runs with 190 RBIs so far in 2018. They have earned it!
