1/11/24 : Phillies Winter League Roundup

Winter league reporting on Phillies and former Phillies playing winter league baseball for games between 1/7 and 1/11/24.

Australian Baseball League :

The brunt of the Phillies league contingent plays for the Adelaide Giants.

1/11 : Adelaide 4 (22-11) Sydney 0 (11-22)

Newly signed Phillies minor league LHP Lachlan Wells was once again outstanding going six shutout innings, he tied the Adelaide single game record by posting 14 strikeouts allowing just two hits and one walk.  Lachlan threw 87 pitches with 67 of them for strikes.  On the season he’s now got an incredible 0.63 ERA in 8 appearances (43 IP) with 60 strikeouts and a minuscule 5 walks - opponents are hitting just .158 against him and his WHIP is 0.67 👀🔥 - I’d say that Phillies area scouting cross checker Howie Norsetter (a legend in his own right) made a great decision when inking Lachlan to a Phillies contract!

In the contest former Phillies minor league RHP Austin Ross allowed only one hit in an inning of relief work.  Former Phillies minor leaguer Nick Ward was 2 for 5 with a run scored and RBI.  He’s now hitting .333 with a .407 OBP in 120 AB’s and is certainly in the running for the league MVP award.  Rixon Wingrove and Cade Fergus each singled in the contest.

Dominican Professional League :

1/10 : Former Phillies LHP Austin Davis pitched four innings in relief (1 R, 3 H, 2 BB, 1 K) for Estrellas Orientales against Leones del Escogido.

1/8 : Former Phillies minor league RHP Sam McWilliams pitched two perfect frames (3 K’s) for Tigres del Licey in a 9-2 win over Estrellas Orientales.  McWilliams has thrown well for the Tigers, he’s a 28 year old free agent who spent last summer pitching in the Mexican League.

Venezuelan Professional Baseball League :

1/8 : Former Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera went 2 for 5 for Cardenales de Lara in a 8-7 win against Tiburones de La Guaira.

1/7 : Former Phillies RHP Ricardo Pinto pitched five innings (1 R, 4 H, 1 BB, 3 K’s) for Tiburones de La Guaira in a 4-2 victory over Leones del Caracas.

Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
