Andrew Painter and Darick Hall selected as the Phillies 2022 Paul Owens Award winners
Phillies top prospect Andrew Painter and left-handed slugger Darick Hall have been selected as the 2022 Paul Owens Award winners, the team announced moments ago.
The Paul Owens Award is given out every year to the best pitcher and best player in the Phillies’ entire minor league system. Painter and Hall were undoubtedly the two best players in the whole organization and most deserving after two fantastic seasons down in AAA and in Hall’s case, time in the Majors as well.

Andrew Painter, 19, was one of the best pitchers in the entire minor league this season, tallying just a 1.56 ERA in 22 starts across Single-A, High-A, and Double-A. Painter recorded 155 Ks in 103.2 total innings, allowing just 67 hits and 18 earned runs with a WHIP of 0.887.
Darick Hall had a fantastic season across Triple-A and the Majors, with 35 total homers in 131 total games (26 HRs in AAA). Hall slashed .252/.326/.529 across 93 games with Lehigh Valley, recording 91 hits, 22 doubles, 83 RBIs, and an OPS of .855.
Expect to possibly see Hall back up with the team once it’s playoff time as a left-handed power bat off of the bench.
