PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The AA Eastern League All-Star Game is Wednesday in New Britain, Connecticut, and the AA affiliate of the Phillies, the Reading Fightin Phils, had four players named to this year’s squad. That contingent includes Seth Rosin.
A 24-year-old right-handed pitcher, Rosin was acquired last season from San Francisco in the Hunter Pence trade. Here in 2013, he has gone 6-4 with a 4.13 ERA as a member of the Fightin Phils’ starting rotation. In 98 innings of work, he has allowed 88 hits and struck out 69 batters, while walking just 27.
“Yeah, I’m about where I hoped I’d be,” Rosin told KYW Newsradio prior to Sunday’s game in Reading. “I’m at a point right now in the season, at (now 98) innings, I’ve never been this high in pro ball before. So, my body feels good, working real hard every day and hopefully it just keeps working out.”
