Clearwater’s Simon Muzziotti Coming Into His Own with a Current 8 for 13 Hitting Streak

Simon Muzziotti is only 20-years-old but the Clearwater Threshers centerfielder is looking more and more like the Phillies centerfielder of the future. He is the youngest player on the Threshers roster but is playing like a seasoned veteran this season.

Simon Muzziotti

His all around game is strong. In his last three games in Florida State League he has gone 8 for 13 out of the leadoff spot to raise his average to .299. In Friday’s game he showed his jump in the field by making a long running catch in center to keep the Threshers in the lead. He rarely strikes out (12 times in 108 plate appearances) and has stolen 6 bases.

Muzziotti is up from last season in most of his metrics combined from the Sally League and a few games in the GCL. Currently, his batting average is up almost 50 points and his OPS is up by almost 150 points from last season.

In the last two games on Friday and Saturday nights, Simon went 6 for 9 with a sacrifice fly RBI.  You can watch several of his at bats from those games where he had hits to left,  right and up the middle to center, a perfect drag bunt for a base hit and a sacrifice fly RBI. Watch HERE.

Simon Muzziotti is ranked by the MLB Top 30 Prospect Watch as the Phillies 12th best prospect. They might not be that far off!

    Makes you wonder when two of the better Latin position players in the system (Muzziotti and Abrahan Guiterrez) were actually signed by other teams’ scouts and the Phillies got them thru a forced penalty incurred by the other two teams coming down from MLB…Sox and Braves.
