The Phillies promoted four of their top 16 prospects — Bryson Stott, Francisco Morales, Logan O’Hoppe and Simon Muzziotti — to Triple-A Lehigh Valley for the IronPigs’ remaining 10 games of the season.
All four were at Double-A Reading through last weekend.
Stott, the club’s 2019 first-round pick and its No. 2 prospect according to MLB.com, was recognized as the Phillies minor league player of the year after slashing a combined .299/.386/.494/.879 in 102 games with high-A Jersey Shore and Reading.
Muzziotti only played in four games in Reading this season and 12 total because of visa issues in Venezuela.
O’Hoppe hit .296 in 13 games with Reading after playing 85 games with Jersey Shore.
Morales was part of the alternate site at Coca-Cola Park in April before spending the 2021 season with Reading. He recovered from a rough start to finish with a 4-13 record and a 6.94 ERA.
Other IronPigs roster moves
OF Charlie Tilson and INF T.J. Rivera were placed on the Developmental List.
C Logan Moore, LHP Tyler Alexander and RHP Zach McAllister were released.
INF Sal Gozzo was assigned to Jersey Shore. LHP Josh Hendrickson was assigned to Reading.
LHP Damon Jones was optioned to Lehigh Valley from Philadelphia to make room for OF Travis Jankowski.
RHP Brian Marconi, RHP Hans Crouse, LHP Kyle Dohy, INF Dalton Guthrie and RHP David Paulino were also promoted from Reading.
Crouse, the organization’s No. 4 prospect, was 2-2 with a 2.73 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in six starts with Reading. He allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings in his lone Triple-A start on Sept. 11.
Marconi was 1-2 with 15 saves, a 2.27 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 34 appearances this year with Reading. The lefty starting the season with Jersey Shore.
Dohy, Guthrie and Paulino all spent extensive time in 2021 with the IronPigs. Paulino, who also was briefly called up by the Phillies, was sent down for Lehigh Valley’s final regular-season series with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after coming off the suspended list for hitting a RailRider in the head. That incident triggered a benches-clearing fight last month at Coca-Cola Park.
Lehigh Valley has 10 games on its schedule in what MLB is called the ‘final stretch.’ The first five games began Wednesday night in Buffalo. It has a five-game home series with Worcester, starting Sept. 29.
