In those 12 starts, Seabold has gone 4-4 with a 3.77 ERA and is averaging just under six innings pitched per outing.
The Phillies drafted Seabold in the third round of the 2017 Draft out of Cal State Fullerton and he’s moved swiftly through the organization. He pitched in five games in relief for Williamsport last season with a 0.90 ERA and opened this season by skipping over low-a Lakewood and going straight to Clearwater.
Earlier this season, Seabold earned the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week honor. Teammate Austin Listi won the Player of the Week award that same week and was moved up to Reading on the same day the award was announced.
