A little bit late on this but here are some updates from the farm system...
- Michael Taylor (right) of the Reading Phillies has been named the April player of the month within the Phillies farm system
- Yohan Flande (far right) of the Clearwater Threshers has been named pitcher of the month for April in the farm system
From the Phillies press release [link];
The 6-foot-6, 23-year-old Taylor led all Phillies minor leaguers with 12 runs scored and 14 RBI last month while batting .338. Among his 22 hits were four doubles, one triple and three homers. He stole five bases without being caught. His .338 average for the month ranked seventh best in the Eastern League.
Flande, 23, was 3-0 with an organization-low 0.38 ERA for four starts. In 24 innings, he allowed 15 hits and two runs (one earned) while walking nine and striking out 22. He throws a fastball (89-90), slider and change up.
Congratulations to both players and hopefully they continue to develop!
