Raylin Heredia continues to impress, he had a single and two run home run in two AB’s on Friday, the nineteen year old from Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic is a well built, strong and athletic player. He was the offensive star of the 2022 Dominican Summer League playoffs and Championship Series posting a .417 batting average and .481 OBP with four doubles, a triple and four RBIs for league champion Phillies White in 27 plate appearances. I’ve seen him play in person now a few times and can attest to a very quick bat, easy power (ball jumps off the bat) and speed to burn. In 23 extended spring training plate appearances he’s now posted seven hits (including a double, triple & home run) and four walks for a .478 OBP. In addition we’ve seen him go yard in intra-squad scrimmage play. One to definitely keep an eye on, has tools.
On Tuesday Raylin Heredia had two hits and a walk. Santiago Torres doubled and scored the lone run. Jose Colmenarez doubled and Marco Soto singled and had the lone RBI. The Phillies drew eleven walks and had six hits en-route to their sixth extended spring training game victory on Thursday. Marco Soto tripled and had three RBIs. Albert Rodriquez and Gavin Tonkel doubled. William Bergolla, Ezra Farmer and Yemal Flores each singled. Santiago Torres, Yhoswar Garcia and Matt Alifano walked twice.
On Friday Yhoswar Garcia went three for four with two singles and a triple, he can flat out fly. Yhoswar also was busy defensively in center field, speed is a true asset. Cole Moore hit the ball off the right field fence twice for two doubles, he was three for four overall with two RBI’s. Raylin Heredia had a single and two run home run in two AB’s. William Bergolla was two for four with a single and double, very quick bat. Diego Gonzalez was two for two (singles). Yemal Flores doubled. The Phillies had eighteen hits in total, Marco Soto, Junior Marin, Jehisbert Sevilla, Jorge Mendez and Santiago Torres each singled.
On Tuesday hurlers dominated as the Phillies pitchers held the Blue Jays to just four hits but were only able to amass five themselves. Mavis Graves started on the mound and pitched an inning, he yielded an unearned run on one hit and one walk, struck out one batter. Jace Vines threw a perfect inning with one strikeout, Malik Binns went two scoreless (no hits, 2 BB, 3 K’s).

On Friday Enrique Segura made his first extended spring game appearance, threw the first inning, stuff is really good but left a couple pitches up today and they got spanked for two doubles, one run scored. Oswald Medina was very sharp in his perfect inning of work, Jace Vines threw well (scoreless frame) despite getting pinched by the umpire on strike calls. Zach Haake threw a perfect inning.
