The phils cut ties with the minor league pitching coach Gorman Heimueller. With the poor season from most of the minor league pitching staff, it shouldn't come as a surprise. Dube's contract is also up at the end of this season, will be interesting to see what they do there.

One pitching prospect that has generated some buzz this season is RHP Severino Gonzalez (A+), he had a big year in VSL, going to be very interesting to see how he handles AA next season. Another is RHP Drew Anderson (NY/Penn league) who was a 21st round pick but has back to back impressive seasons, next year should be a good test for him when he moves up to Lakewood (A-).

Last night they pulled LHP Adam Morgan (AAA) after he had some shoulder issues, not a good sign since he missed most of the season with the shoulder injury. Hopefully he can bounce back next year, as I want to see what he can in the majors, big fan of his before the injury.

Couple more days before the roster can expand. Should be interesting to see who they call up, perhaps Cesar Hernandez, Freddy Galvis, Cameron Rupp (injured but day to day, thumb), Mauricio Robles.
