Derrick Mitchell–Back in the Saddle Again

Derrick Mitchell had been on a tear. One Saturday night in June, he hit EIGHT RBIs during a double header, one GRAND SLAM home run and in the second game of the evening, he rustled up four more RBIs. It was one of those nights where it made the future seem limitless…

Then…the next night…

During the 9th inning he was hit on the hand by a pitch.

Pins and surgery followed. It’s been eight weeks since Derrick’s been on the field…but he’s back.

He played yesterday with the Gulf Coast League Phillies in a game in Orlando against the GCL Braves. He hit a home run and had a put out as he played centerfield.

Derrick Mitchell Returns to Play

Today, the team returned to Ashburn field and Derrick was the designated hitter. He went 1 for 5 today…but that one…

Derrick Mitchell hits a double, the ball was just a foot or so away from being a home run.

You can watch video of the hit HERE

It’s good to see him back on the diamond and hopefully back in Lehigh Valley soon.
