Off the Record (OTR)

Here comes Nick Williams

The Philadelphia Phillies supposedly had/have a loaded farm system after getting rid of guys like Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, Ken Giles and Jimmy Rollins. But, mostly because of Cole Hamels.

One of the guys they got in return in that Hamels deal is left fielder Nick Williams. He’s a Top 100 prospect and the Phillies need any and all help they can get. They are an absolutely terrible baseball team.

So, could help be on the way? Jim Salisbury says that Williams has been called up to The Show.

“Nick Williams is on his way to NY. Promoted!!,” Salisbury tweets.

We don’t know if this is a good thing yet or not, but why not give him a chance? Williams is hitting .280 with 15 home runs and 44 RBIs at Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season. He has serious place discipline issues, but has plenty of upside. Why not give him a look? What are you going to do? Lose?

The Phillies blow, might as well get a look at that farm system we’ve heard so damn much about.
