7/19/21 : Today’s FCL & DSL Action
Florida Complex League : @ Carpenter Complex - 10 AM
The Phillies were well on their way to victory with a 12-0 bottom of the third inning lead over the Tigers East squad when Mother Nature put an abrupt stop to the action with a downpour of rain. The game was suspended and will resume on 7/24.
Adam Haseley smoked a home run over the right field fence just before play halted. Both he and Hunter Markwardt were in today’s lineup on rehab assignments. RH Dylan Castaneda was dominating on the hill thru three innings for the Phillies allowing just one hit. Best we’ve seen the young 20 year old to date.
The new draft signees and un-drafted free agents ( UDFA ) are at the complex for their orientation meetings and initial workouts. I believe we saw 18 of the 20 draftees and 10 UDFA’s. In normal conditions we would introduce ourselves to the young men and let them know that their families and friends can follow their minor league careers on both my page and Jim Peyton’s Phuture Phillies page. These aren’t normal circumstances however so we kept our distance as per protocols. Happy to see the new recruits in the house, now they get to work 👍⚾️.
