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.
