THE Prospect List

Over the past few weeks there have been many prospect lists being published. Well I am here to give you my Phillies prospect list. I have said before that it is difficult to compare the value of pitchers to position players so here is the top 25 in both category. Overall the Phillies farm system is much better than people believe. Obviously it was stronger last year as we have lost Marson, Knapp, Carrasco, Donald, Drabek, Taylor, and D'Arnaud. Still, the Phillies have plenty of high ceiling players in the low minors. The Phillies have a plethora of good prospects, it just doesn't seem this way because they are all 18,19,20 years old and are at the very least 2+ years away. Anyways here it the top 50 overall.

Some notes about my list.

Personal Favs:

Bastardo- Maybe best stuff. Would have put #1 if they gave him a chance to start.
Cosart- Absurd athlete. Had a great rookie season even though very small sample size.
Cisco- Insane control. Better name.
Singleton- Great Discipline and power potential. Best pure hitter in the system.
Gillies- Most have him worse than Gose. Similar skills but I like Gillies patience and bat in the long run.
Hudson- Crazy athleticism and he may be faster than Gose.
