Philadelphia Phillies Top Prospect Griff McGarry Scores Triple-A Iron Pigs Debut

The Philadelphia Phillies made that sentiment clear this week when they aggressively promoted Griff McGarry to the Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Armed with some of the nastiest pure stuff in the game, McGarry had a great season in 2022 across three levels. Unfortunately, the young right-hander stumbled in Wednesday’s debut, allowing three runs in two innings.

As for the staff, McGarry looked great, but the jitters in his debut seemed to get the best of him at times. His command was sporadic, walking two hitters and allowing three hits, and this breaking ball he dangled to Sox standout Bobby Dalbec for the Sox.
