Vito Friscia Makes His Bid for Phillies Prospect Status

We have to apologize to Jersey Shore BlueClaws first baseman catcher Vito Friscia. We overlooked him in a previous blog which listed several Phillies prospects who are hot with the bat or pitching.

Vito hit in his 10th straight game last night-going 3 for 4 with his third homer of the season. His homer last night was off a left-handed pitcher. He is hitting them at a .345 average for the season.

Friscia is accustomed to being overlooked. He was a 40th and last round pick, 1,200th pick overall, by the Phillies in 2019. The 2021 Draft will have only 20 rounds.

He is having a July to remember hitting. He is 12 for 27 for a .444 average and a 1.196 OPS in his first nine games of the month.

We watched him homer last night on MiLB-TV. The BlueClaws finish up their series with the Wilmington Blue Rocks today at 1:05 PM.

    As the saying goes….the Phillies are playing with house money with the 24-year old 40th round draft pick Vito.
    I say push him up the ladder ..Reading later this month sometime, and then LHV to start 2022….force-feed him and see how he does.
    Right now he is older than most in Hi-A, so he should be challenged.
