Philadelphia Phillies: Grading the Depth of Prospects at Each Position

There may only be 25 men on the active MLB roster, but the number of important players in the Phillies organization is much higher.

At each position, there are prospects in the minor leagues who can be just as impactful as the guys playing at the highest level.

The Phillies have made a handful of huge trades in the past few years—the Halladay, Lee and Pence trades are some examples—and the common theme in these trades is the movement of prospects out of the Phillies' farm system.

In the deal that brought Hunter Pence to Philadelphia, for example, the Phillies had to give up top prospects Jonathan Singleton and Jarred Cosart, as well as outfielder Domingo Santana.

But that doesn't mean that the farm system is completely depleted; at some positions the Phillies show great depth, while at others there are few players who could make the majors.
