Anyone with info on the Bourn Identity?

Postby in10s » Mon Jun 26, 2006 5:05 pm

I've done some research without a lot of luck on Michael Bourn of the Reading Phillies. Does anyone have more information?

Here is what I could find:

He was listed in Baseball America as the number 3 prospect in the Phillies Organization.

One 5/29 article I said: "He's struggling a little bit being back at Reading for his second year ... Through 47 games this season, he was hitting .246 with 10 RBIs and 37 strikeouts. He also had stolen 17 bases."

That is pretty poor for a second year at the same level. Why is he back there?

But it seems that since 5/29 he had done much better. has his current stats as:
Ave .276 (+30)
RBI 24 (+14)
K 62 (+25, not good)
SB 27 (+10)

the phillies prospect list is thin so #3 isnt that impressive..i saw him play at AA last year and thought he could be a dv roberts type but the 123 Ks in 05 were a setback..he is only 23 so he could improve
