Phildrick Llewellyn Moves From Paderborn to Bonn

After three years of baseball with the Untouchables Paderborn, Curaçao-born Phildrick Llewellyn has chosen to join another team. He will move to the reigning German champion Bonn Capitals, the opponent of Llewellyn and the Untouchables in last year’s German championship series.

Before coming to Germany, Llewellyn had a career in the USA. He was signed in the international draft in 2012 by the Arizona Diamondbacks. After having played two years in the D’Backs minor league system, the Snakes released him but he was picked up by the Baltimore Orioles, who sent him to the Dominican Summer League. In May 2015, he was promoted to the Fredrick Keys (back then High A ball) but in a time span of three weeks he was moved back and forth between the Keys and the Aberdeen Ironbirds (back then Low A ball). Eventually, the O’s released him in 2016.

In 2016 and 2017 he played for several indy league teams before he signed with the Rimini Pirates from the Italian Serie A1 in 2018. His stay in Italy wasn’t that long, but he signed with the Quebec Capitales of the CanAm League. But the Capitales also got rid of him rather quickly, so he ended the 2018 season with the Trinidad Triggers of the independent Pecos League.

In 2019 Phildrick tried his luck in Germany and signed with the Untouchables Paderborn, where he would be a mainstay as a utility player, and as a youth trainer. He will also take care of training youth players with the Capitals.

With the Untouchables, Llewellyn batted .333 in 2022, with five doubles, a triple, and a home run, and with twelve RBI. In the 2021 season, he almost hit hundred percentage points higher (.432) with six doubles, four home runs and twelve RBI.
So one may say his transfer to Bonn will hurt the Untouchables.
