Stock Up, Stock Down for Philadelphia Phillies' Top 10 Prospects for Week 5
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It’s a good thing that some of the Philadelphia Phillies minor league pitching prospects have had success this season, because it appears another call-up will soon be needed.

John Finger of CSNPhilly.com reported that Roy Halladay admitted to having a sore throwing shoulder. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the pitcher will likely go on the disabled list.

If Halladay ends up on the disabled list, a starter will be needed May 10 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Which pitcher will potentially join Jonathan Pettibone and become the second minor league call-up this season?

In terms of who will be pitching on regular rest, Adam Morgan made his start Sunday at Triple-A, setting up May 10 as a possibility for his major league debut.  However, he has seen his ERA increase in recent weeks.

Although he is not currently ranked as a top 10 prospect, Tyler Cloyd recently struck out 10 batters in an eight-inning victory at Triple-A.

Which other top 10 prospects, according to Baseball America, are setting themselves up for a potential major league call-up?

Let’s take a look at which players’ stocks are up and which are down following Week 5.
