Back To The Future: Top 2019 Phillies Starting Pitching Prospects With the Clearwater Threshers

We were fortunate to watch a strong group of starting pitchers for the Clearwater Threshers over last season. The staff was under constant change with injuries and call-ups but clearly we saw some of the best starting pitching prospects that the Phillies farm system could offer.

Now with the COVID-19 epidemic rules causing a delay in the 2019 season, we decided to go back into our archives and show videos of eight pitchers who started in at least one game for the Threshers last season. We believe they all have a chance to pitch in the major leagues at some point in the future.

It will be a lot of contests for starters and relief pitching spots. In the recently cancelled spring training, the Phillies had 154 pitchers report to either the major or minor league camps. Of that total 114 of them were just starting to work out in the minor league camp before spring training was postponed on Friday, March 13th.

Over our next four blogs, we will take a look at two of the 2019Threshers starters in each post. We have selected four right-handed and four left-handed starters who impressed us and we will post a strikeout video from one of their starts last season.

The four blogs will cover the following tandems: Spencer Howard/Damon Jones, Connor Seabold/Ethan Lindow, Colton Eastman/Ethan Evanko and Kyle Glogski/Kyle Young.

Our first right-left tandem post is on Kyle Glogski and Kyle Young. Glogoski started 11 games for the Threshers and pitched to a 2-2 record, 1.88 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and struck out 45 in 52.2 innings. Young started 4 games for the Threshers before he was shutdown and pitched to a 1-3 record, 4.29 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and struck out 25 in 21 innings. He is recovering currently from Tommy John surgery.
