Sam Coonrod was a surprising pick-up in January, acquired from the Giants for pitching prospect Carson Ragsdale.  Ragsdale had been selected by the Phillies in the fourth round of the 2020 amateur player draft so he had yet to pitch for any of their minor league affiliates.  Coonrod went 5-1 with a 3.58 ERA over 33 games in 2019, and then had a dreadful 2020 season.  In 18 games last season, he was 0-2 with a 9.82 ERA, allowing 16 runs in 14 2/3 innings pitched.  It's working out so far for him with the Phillies, so the club must have seen something they liked in Coonrod's scouting reports.

He's appeared in a few Topps' baseball card sets so far, debuting in the 2016 Bowman set.  He shared a Rookie Combos card in the 2019 Topps Update set with Travis Bergen and his most recent cards came last year within the Topps Heritage and Topps Total sets.
