Is Scott Kingery the future at 2nd base for the Phillies?
A lot of Phillies fans are very excited to see today's starting lineup for the team as the Phils take on the New York Yankees in Clearwater at 1:05 pm.
Nevermind the snow that is currently falling in the Philadelphia region as I write this post, the warmth of the Grapefruit League is reaching all the way to the Delaware Valley.
The excitement from fans is coming from the Phillies players due to be in the starting lineup, Scott Kingery and J.P. Crawford. A lot of Phillies fans are always looking towards the future for players that are highly rated to do well.
Kingery has been making himself known so far this Spring, he's been in 8 games and is batting .353 with 2 of his 6 hits being HR's. So far, he's been showing great power hitting for a 2nd baseman
J.P. Crawford hasn't broken out yet, he's batting .167 in 7 games with 18 AB's. So for now, he's been a name we've been hearing a lot of but possibly someone who doesn't seem like he's ready to step up to the big leagues.
Clay Buchholz is ready to go for his 3rd start of the Spring Training season, he's sitting in a lofty 7.20 ERA at this point only pitching for 5.0 innings total in his two starts prior to today's game against the Yankees.
