June 4th, 2022

Clearwater infielder Hao Yu Lee and Jersey Shore right-hander Ben Brown have been named Phillies Minor League Hitter and Pitcher of the Month, respectively, for May.

The 19-year-old Lee posted a .292/.405/.552 slash line, going 28-for-96 with five doubles, one triple, six home runs, 28 RBI, 15 runs, 15 walks and three stolen bases in 26 games with single-A Clearwater during May. His 28 RBI last month were tied for the sixth-most among all minor league hitters and tied for the most in the Florida State League. From May 12-18, he posted a seven-game hitting streak during which he batted .480 (12-25) with two doubles, four homers, 13 RBI and a 1.592 OPS. Lee was named FSL Player of the Week and selected to the MLB Pipeline Prospect Team of the Week during the period of May 9-15. Entering play today, he had the following rankings among qualifying FSL players this season: first in RBI (37), fourth in OPS (.857), tied for sixth in hits (45) and total bases (75), eighth in batting average (.283), on-base percentage (.385) and slugging percentage (.472), and tied for eighth in home runs (7). Lee, a native of Taiwan, was signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent in June 2021.

Brown, 22, went 2-1 with a 0.98 ERA (2 ER, 18.1 IP) in four May starts with high-A Jersey Shore. Additionally, he held opponents to a .129 batting average (8-62) while striking out 42.9 percent of the batters he faced (30-70). He finished last month riding a 16.1-inning scoreless streak, which began on May 15, and is still active as of today. In his last outing, in game two of a doubleheader vs Greenville on May 28, he recorded a season-best 11 strikeouts over 5.0 scoreless innings while allowing one hit and one walk to the 17 batters he faced. He owns a 2.90 ERA (10 ER, 31.0 IP) and has limited opponents to a .180 batting average (20-111) in eight starts this season with Jersey Shore. The 6-foot-6 righty, who was born in New York, was selected by the Phillies in the 33rd round of the June 2017 draft.
