Philadelphia Phillies: Top prospects report

The Phillies’ rebuilding process made just marginal progress in 2016, as many of the team’s top prospects had disappointing seasons and the team’s draft class landed just two players from my pre-draft top 100. The Phillies still have a healthy crop of teenagers in their lowest levels, largely from their long-running Latin American pipeline, and should see a number of prospects reach the majors this season for at least part-time roles. The system’s biggest strength is pitchers signed out of Latin America, with a huge crop in Class A and below who are still far from their ceilings.
