6/11/24 : Two Pitchers promoted from FCL to Clearwater

The Phillies have promoted right-handed pitchers Enrique Segura and Luis Avila from the FCL roster to the Clearwater Threshers. Here’s some notes on each.


RHP Enrique Segura - 19 years old - signed as an international free agent 1/15/22 from San Pedro de Macoris, DR


2023 Stats :  appeared in 11 FCL games (10 starts) amassing 36.2 IP with 33 strikeouts and 29 walks.  Recorded a 1.66 WHIP and averaged 9.19 pitches per inning pitched with a strike ratio of 60 %.  Best outing was on 7/21/23 in Dunedin vs Blue Jays - 5 innings, no runs, two hits, five strikeouts and two walks.


Pitching Coordinator Travis Hergert :  Low to mid 90’s fastball. Very long loose delivery, with some delivery comparison to Nola.”


2024 :  while velocity is down a bit his control and command are much better.  In six starts he’s posted a 3.90 ERA in 32.1 IP with 31 K’s and 12 walks.  On May 11th pitched five innings as part of a three pitcher no hitter against the FCL Tigers, we were on hand to watch that one!


RHP Luis Avila - 21 years old - signed 2/23/23 as an international free agent from Turmero, Venezuela


2023 Stats :  appeared in 14 games (all in relief) for DSL Phillies White posting a 2.35 ERA in 23 IP with 23 K’s and 8 walks.


Pitching Coordinator Travis Hergert :   “Avila is a power arm that throws from a high slot. He also throws a hard cutter around 87-88 mph and a low 80’s slider. Fastball range is 95-97 mph”


Enrique Segura leads the FCL in K’s (31) and IP (32.1) and is 8th in WHIP (1.30).  Luis Avila leads the league in saves (4).


We wish them both continued success as Threshers.


Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
