Is Austin Hyatt using Roy Halladay’s locker?

Hyatt completely destroyed the Jupiter Hammerheads on Tuesday. He went eight innings strong giving up no runs, one hit, and two walks. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that he also struck out a career high 14 hitters.

Hyatt is easily moving up the ranks in the Phillies organization. I definitely would not worry about rushing the kid. Hyatt, 24 on the 23rd, is definitely a surprise as he was drafted in the 15th round of the 2009 draft. Which means all 30 teams picked 466 players before him.

In his short career, Hyatt has a good line:

  • 9-1 25 G (11 GS) 1.50 ERA 0.83 WHIP 26 BBs 142 Ks

He is already at High A Clearwater and has a good possibility of ending the season in AA Reading. If all goes well for Hyatt, we should expect to see him either as a call up in 2011 or sometime during the 2012 season.
