The Philadelphia Phillies saw two of their top pitching prospects turn in solid starts this past week, with one coming at the major league level and the other at Double-A.
While Jonathan Pettibone made his major league debut and saw the Phillies win both of his two starts, Jesse Biddle racked up 16 strikeouts while picking up a win at Double-A.
The Phillies' Triple-A affiliate also closed out the week strong, using 12 runs and 15 hits to pick up a win and help multiple players improve their offensive statistics heading into week five.
But what about the rest of the Phillies' top 10 prospects? Who will follow in Pettibone’s footsteps and earn the next major league call-up? Who will earn the first minor league promotion?
The following list contains the Phillies' top 10 prospects according to Baseball America. Of these players, six are either currently at or began the season at the Triple-A level, meaning that the majority are one step away from the major leagues.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at which players’ stocks are up and which are down following week four.
