The Vegas Boys, Harper and Stott Battle Each Other for the Mythical “Phillies Organization Player of August” Title While O’Hoppe and Dohy Show They Belong in MLB

A real battle has brewed for the Phillies Organization Player of the Month. Two guys from Las Vegas, Bryce Harper and Bryson Stott are having an August to remember. Logan O’Hoppe made a dramatic debut for Reading while one of his battery mates, Kyle Dohy, looks ready to move up with him.

In the month of August little differences exists between the stats of Harper and Stott except one is doing it in the “Bigs” while the other is dominating at AA.

Just take a look at the August numbers, first for Harper and the second for Stott:

AB, 108/100; Runs, 21/19; Hits, 26/42; 2B, 9/9; 3B, 1/1; HR, 9/5; RBIs, 21/18; BB, 19/9; Ks, 19/21; BA, .310/.420, OBP, .444./.453; SLG .762/.680; OPS, 1.206/1.135.

Harper’s 1.206 leads in OPS but Stott’s .420 batting average tops Harper’s BA.

Harper has two more games left in August, Monday and Tuesday in Washington while Stott has one game left in the month in Hartford Conn.

O’Hoppe finally got the call to Reading last week and he did not disappoint. He went 4 for 13 with a double and a homers in three starts behind the plate. The Fightin Phils won all three games.

One of O’Hoppe singles was off the 37 ft. high Maine Monster in left. It would likely have been a homer in most parks except for the one in Portland Me.

His home run on Sunday was a majestic shot over the Monster. His homer was listed at a distance of 388 ft. with an exit velocity of 106 mph. Watch it below:

Left handed reliever Kyle Dohy came on in yesterday’s game to get a strikeout in the bottom of the seventh inning and picked up three more strikeouts in the eight in his 1.1 innings of work to set up the win.

Soon, we see Bryson Stott, Logan O’Hoppe and Kyle Dohy joining Bryce Harper in a Phillies major league uniform.
