Phillies Acquire Minor League Infielder Stefan Jarrin

As we all know by now, the Philadelphia Phillies traded fan favorite Shane Victorino on July 31st. In return, the Phillies received SP Ethan Martin, RP Josh Lindblom, and a player to be named later. The player to be named later has finally been named, with the final piece of the deal being Stefan Jarrinn.

Jarrin, a 40th round pick in 2011, has spent 2 years in rookie-league ball. His stats aren’t good, let alone great, but did we expect anything good from a player to be named later? In 91 2012 at-bats, he recorded a .305 on-base percentage and a .363 slugging percentage. Those stats go along with 7 extra-base hits, 3 of which being home runs and another tri-fold being triples.

Again, there’s really not much to be seen here. Nevertheless, organizational depth is always desirable. Having a Plan B, C, or Z is important because look what happened when the Phightin’ Phils didn’t have a suibtable replacement for Chase Utley.

One thing that is somewhat interesting is that Jarrin is the grandson of Dodgers Hall of Fame Spanish radio broadcaster Jaime Jarrin.

Here’s to a great 2013 of Phillies Minor League Baseball!
