Phillies prospects Andrew Knapp and Edubray Ramos play in Arizona Fall League showcase

Andrew Knapp and Edubray Ramos are part of the Phillies contingent playing in the Arizona Fall League. The two were also selected to play in the Fall Stars Game, the AFL version of an all-star game.

Andrew Knapp and Edubray Ramos both saw time on the field in the Fall Stars Game and were on the winning side as the AFL West downed the AFL East 8-3.

Knapp, entered the game in the sixth inning at first base and got two at-bats. Knapp entered the game as a pinch-hitter and struck out swinging with a runner on second. In his second at-bat, Knapp also struck out swinging with a runner on first.

Much of Knapp's playing time in the AFL has come as a first baseman, having played first in five of the ten games that he's played this fall. He's caught in four games and served as a DH in the other. Knapp has made one error as an AFL first baseman. Offensively, he's struggled at the plate, hitting just .226, but he's posted an on-base percentage of .390 through his first ten games.

Ramos entered the game to start the bottom of the ninth and struck out two batters before being lifted in favor of his Glendale teammate Robinson Leyer, of the White Sox. Ramos allowed six earned runs in just 2/3 of an inning in his outing prior to the Fall Stars Game, pushing his ERA from 1.50 to 9.45 on the AFL season.

Both Knapp and Ramos had strong minor league seasons, with Knapp hitting a combined 13-84-.308/.385/.491 between Clearwater and Reading. The fact that he's playing some first base may give a hint into the Phillies plans for Knapp in 2016. He and catcher Jorge Alfaro, who was acquired in the Cole Hamels trade, are both highly regarded behind the plate, so the Phillies will need to find a new position for one of them.

Ramos also played at both Clearwater and Reading, going 4-6, 2.33 in 47 relief appearances between the two stops.He also struck out 65 batters in 69 2/3 innings of work.
