2009 Multi-Ad Lakewood BlueClaws #9 Travis d'Arnaud

The big club is off today, but the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws begin play in the South Atlantic League Championship Series tonight. They'll face off in the best-of-five series against the Greenville Drive, the Red Sox' Class A affiliate. Phils' reliever Clay Condrey, currently on a rehab assignment, gets the start in the opener for the BlueClaws.

Top prospect Travis d'Arnaud was the team's primary catcher this year, hitting .255 (.303 in the second half) with 13 home runs and 71 RBI. Entering the 2009 season, Travis was ranked by Baseball America as the Phils' 7th best prospect in their system.

One of these years, we're going to make the roadtrip to First Energy Park in Lakewood either in addition to or in lieu of our annual trip to Lehigh Valley to catch an IronPigs game.

Best of luck to the BlueClaws!

UPDATE - Apparently Clay Condrey wasn't starting tonight for the BlueClaws, but he did pitch an inning in relief.
