With Spring Training games underway across the league, let’s take a look at which players the Phillies invited to attend mini-camp this year. The only prospect invited to Spring Training was catcher Rodolfo Duran, who we’ll take a look at more in a future deep-dive article. For now, let’s recap the players who are attended the Stitched Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys mini-camp and find out more about them and how they may or may not help your fantasy teams this year and in the future. The mini-camp is an alternative to the usual Minor League Camp, which was been postponed this year until April due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Players in both camps will work out at the same time but on different fields.

Edgar Cabral, C
Rank on my Phillies Preseason Top 50: Unranked
Who is he? Cabral was the team’s 11th round pick in the 2015 draft and hasn’t advanced above A ball yet, slashing a cumulative .249/.318/.362 with 17 home runs over 957 at bats in 5 seasons.
Odds of making Opening Day roster: 0%
Odds of being promoted in 2021: 0%
What would have to happen for him to be promoted? A massive injury bug to all of the catchers above Cabral in the pipeline along with injuries to most unemployed backup catchers.

Darick Hall, 1B
Rank on Preseason Top 50: 30
Who is he? Hall is a power-hitting first baseman who has been with the organization since being selected in the 14th round in the 2016 draft. Hall has always shown massive power, hitting 84 home runs in his 4 minor league seasons but has struggled with strikeouts and making contact with the ball.
Odds of making Opening Day roster: 0%
Odds of being promoted in 2021: 25%
What would have to happen for him to be promoted? Rhys Hoskins is recovering from elbow surgery and is expected to be fully recovered by the time the season starts, if not earlier but if that’s not the case, the team could call up Hall to help fill the void if he has a good showing this spring.

It takes a village to raise a World Series banner. The primary focus is always going to be on the stars, but reaching the final destination would be impossible without major contributions from the role players who spend most of their time watching from the bench.

You think about the 2008 Phillies and the names of Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Cole Hamels roll easily off the tongue. Jayson Werth, Shane Victorino, Pat Burrell, Carlos Ruiz, and even Pedro Feliz will also always have a special place in the hearts of Philadelphia fans that were starving for a championship.

Think a little deeper and you should remember the bench guys, too. The Phillies might not win it all without Matt Stairs’ monstrous home run off Jonathan Broxton in Game 4 of the NLCS at Dodger Stadium. The biggest hit of Geoff Jenkins’ life — a pinch-hit leadoff double — kickstarted the Phillies when play resumed in Game 5 of the World Series against Tampa Bay. It should also not be forgotten that the Phillies had the best pinch-hitter in baseball that season with Greg Dobbs hitting a ridiculous .355 (22-for-62). And, finally, Chris Coste gave the Phillies a third straight great season as a backup catcher after having to wait until he was 33 years old just to get to the big leagues.

The story of the Phillies’ 2008 bench was so good that it deserves a book of its own.

Back here in the present, the Phillies need to improve a lot of things from last year and a lot of other years that have led to their nine straight seasons without a sniff of postseason play.

“I think our biggest issues probably came late in games more than anything,” manager Joe Girardi said after a recent Grapefruit League game.

That was a reference to the rotten bullpen, a topic that has deservedly been discussed ad nauseam given the degree of awfulness by last year’s relievers. New team president David Dombrowski gave the pen a massive makeover, however, and so far the Grapefruit League results have been outstanding. The nine guys with the best chance of opening the season in the bullpen have combined to pitch 26 innings and have allowed just four earned runs for a 1.38 ERA. They’ve also struck out 26 while allowing just 16 hits and six walks.

Girardi is right, though. Blown leads played a bigger part in last year’s failure than a bad bench, but the Phillies’ reserves left a lot to be desired, too.

The team’s best bench player by far was backup catcher Andrew Knapp. In fact, he was one of the best backup catchers in baseball last season.

Beyond that, the bench did not contribute much. Jay Bruce, who is now with the New York Yankees, provided his usual power, but hit just .198 with a .252 on-base percentage. Scott Kingery, moved to a reserve role after Alec Bohm was called up from the alternate-site camp 14 games into the season, struggled from start to finish. Phil Gosselin forced his way onto the team by having an incredible summer camp and remained hot through most of the first month, but then batted .133 (6-for-45) in his final 22 games.

Dombrowski addressed the need for bench help after his late off-season arrival with the biggest addition being Brad Miller, who signed a one-year deal worth $3.5 million. Miller, Bruce, and Corey Dickerson were all good bench additions by former general manager Matt Klentak in 2019 as they combined for 32 home runs in just 396 at-bats.

Twelve of those home runs came from Miller, who also brought some bamboo plants with him to the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park. Both the plants and Miller were gone last season, but he continued to build a strong resume as a bench player by hitting .232 with a .357 on-base percentage and an .807 OPS for a St. Louis Cardinals team that reached the postseason.

“Brad is obviously a professional and he has been doing this a long time,” Girardi said. “I think sometimes when you ask kids to do that off-the-bench job it can be difficult on them because they’re used to playing every day. I think when you have someone like Brad who is prepared for every situation, you don’t have to question whether Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys China he’s loose. He’s able to follow and manage the game along with you and understands when he is going to be used. I also think it gives you a good option to give some players a day off because he is such a potent left-handed bat.”

Miller has played all three outfield and all four infield positions in his career, so he gives Girardi a lot of options.

Dombrowski also signed another left-handed power bat in Matt Joyce, who is in camp as a non-roster invite but is likely to make the team.

“He is another guy that is used to doing (the bench job),” Girardi said. “He’s been doing it the last few years of his career and understands how to do it.”

The Phillies added a lot of velocity to their bullpen this offseason and rightfully so. They needed more bat-missers in high-leverage situations. Beyond having the majors’ highest ERA, WHIP, opponents’ batting average, OBP and slugging percentage, the Phillies’ 2020 bullpen ranked 27th in strikeouts.

With Archie Bradley, Jose Alvarado and a full season of Connor Brogdon, the strikeout rate should rise. Something that would make it even better is a unique look, a pitcher similar to Pat Neshek or Darren O’Day, who signed a one-year contract with the Yankees worth less than $2.5 million.

Having different looks in a bullpen is important. If you have exclusively hard-throwing right-handers who go fastball-slider, you won’t disrupt your opponent’s timing as much as if the next reliever contrasts the last. Think of a hitter facing a finesse righty after seeing three 97 mph two-seamers from the lefty Alvarado in his previous at-bat.

O’Day would have been a good fit in that regard and there are still a few relievers left who’d give the Phillies’ bullpen some more diversity in delivery and stuff.

RHP Sergio Romo (38 in March)
Romo’s rookie year was 2008, and he played a pivotal role on those three Giants World Series teams. He’s pitched for four teams since, spending the last season and a half with the Twins.

He’s remained effective with that trademark frisbee slider and, somehow, avoided a serious arm injury despite throwing it about 60% of the time. In the last two seasons, he has a 3.59 ERA and low 1.12 WHIP with more than a strikeout per inning.

Romo has a slingshot-like, low-three-quarters delivery. A right-handed hitter usually knows what’s coming, but that slider is tough to lay off of low-and-away or hit with much authority.
