Philadelphia Phillies Minor League Weekend Recap: First Baseman Darick Hall Destroys Them All
Thanks to a whole bunch of rain delays, the Philadelphia Phillies minor league affiliates had a pretty weird schedule this weekend, and there’s plenty to catch up on!
So buckle up, because here’s everything you missed at Phillies Farm:
Triple-A: 1B Darick Hall – 8 for 16, 4 HR, 2 2B, 7 R, 8 RBI, 3 BB, 4 K
I don’t think there’s anyone in minor league baseball who’s had a better weekend than Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Darick Hall.
The massive southpaw went 8 for 16 with four home runs, bringing his season total to 10 on the year. He’s usually just a speed-out darling, and the surface numbers don’t always back him up, so to see him get off to such a great start is interesting. He had a strong spring performance with the Major League club ahead of the start of the season.
Double-A: C Logan O’Hoppe – 4 for 7, HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, 3 BB, K
The Phillies’ best prospect is hot. Logan O’Hoppe had a weekend, smashing his second homer of the season and finally starting to level his season numbers.
It’s been a slower start to the season for O’Hoppe, but that quickly reversed as the 22-year-old now boasts an OPS of 0.852, as well as a walk-to-out ratio of 10:11. He hit base at a .400 clip.
High-A: RHP Mick Abel – 3.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
He’s been relatively overlooked this season thanks to the remarkable success of Phillies number two prospect Andrew Painter, but Mick Abel is having a strong start to the 2022 season.
For a kid throwing a competition who is on average three years older than him, you certainly wouldn’t know. The 20-year-old now boasts a 3.86 ERA on the season and has K’d 23 batters in 14 innings of work. He only walked three.
Single-A: RHP Andrew Painter – 4.0 IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 6K
Everyone saw this one coming. Andrew Painter continues to dominate the competition. He’s now struck out 48 of 66 possible via strikeout, and still hasn’t allowed a run through 22 pro innings of work.
The fastball continues to be in the 96-98 range, and he still primarily works the fastball/slider, although the switch still has the potential to become a plus secondary. All in all, the kid is an electric arm.
