Phillies baseball is officially back and underway, as the Phillies took on the Tigers at Public Merchant Stadium this afternoon. Despite ending in a 6-6 tie after nine innings in the GrapeFruit league action, there were some Phils that stood out today.
Phillies Current 3B- Alec Bohm
Alec Bohm is a man to watch this spring for the Phillies. Alec is fighting to win the starting job at third base and to try and stay with the major league club to start the season. Bohm started off his 2022 Spring Training on the right foot.
Alec went 1-3 with an RBI and a single in today’s game. He reached base twice as he reached first in the fifth inning due to a throwing error by the Tiger’s shortstop. Alec put the ball in play all three times he was in the box and looked more like the player we saw in his rookie season.
Iron Pigs’ first basemen Darick Hall had a nice outing today in his 2022 Spring Training debut. Hall hit a moonshot to the right-field stands in the top of the 5th. Hall’s two-run home run would be the first home run of the spring for the Phils. Hall would drive in Alec Bohm who had reached prior on a throwing error. Hall finished the day going 1-3 with the 2 run home run and a strikeout.
Simon Muzziotti is a guy to keep an eye on for the centerfielder position for the Phillies. While the chances of Muzziotto making the club out of the spring are low, Simon has the talent to quickly rise up the minor league ranks.
Muzziotti spent most of the 2021 season on the restricted list as he had issues with his work visa. In today’s game, he went 1-1 with an RBI double and a walk.
The Phillies take on the Blue Jays in their first game at Clearwater tomorrow afternoon at 1:05PM.
