READING, Pa. - Its been a busy week for the Fightin Phils. They took a series from Bowie and open up another against the Yard Goats Friday. They've also welcomed a new outfielder to their ranks.
Zach Coppola has been manning right field in Baseballtown. The 23-year-old forced his callup by tearing it up in Clearwarter.
He hit .350 and posted seven extra-base hits.
But its speed where Coppola makes his biggest impact.
He had ten steals for the Threshers and has already totaled two in Reading.
Hitting near the top of the lineup he should be a major catalyst for the Fightin Phils. We'll have to see if he joins fellow speedster Scott Kingery at the top of the league ranks.
Sam Marcinek has more in the report above.
