6/2/23 : May Minor League Players of the Month

Phillies Press Release :

 

MARCUS LEE SANG AND WESLEY MOORE EARN ORGANIZATIONAL

HONORS FOR THE MONTH OF MAY

 

Jersey Shore outfielder Marcus Lee Sang and Clearwater left-handed pitcher Wesley Moore have been named Phillies Minor League Hitter and Pitcher of the Month, respectively, for May.

 

Lee Sang, 22, posted a .352/.491/.557 slash line (1.048 OPS), going 31-for-88 with five doubles, two triples, three home runs, 18 RBI, 24 walks and nine stolen bases in 27 games with high-A Jersey Shore during May. The left-handed hitter tied for the South Atlantic League-lead in walks and ranked second in on-base percentage and OPS, fourth in average, tied for sixth in RBI and ninth in slugging percentage during the month. Lee Sang was selected by the Phillies in the 11th round of the 2019 MLB Draft out of Northern High School in Owings, Md.

 

            The 23-year-old Moore made eight relief appearances for single-A Clearwater in May, allowing only two earned runs in 13.2 innings pitched. The 6-foot-2 rookie struck out 22 of the 59 batters he faced (37.3%) and held hitters to a .188 average (9-48). His 14.49 strikeouts per nine innings pitched ranked seventh in the Florida State League among pitchers with at least 10 innings pitched during the month. On the season, Moore’s 0.79 ERA (2 ER, 22.2 IP) ranks second in the FSL among pitchers with at least 15 innings pitched. The Kansas State University graduate signed with the Phillies as an amateur free agent on Nov. 9, 2022.
