The Philadelphia Phillies will see two more of their minor league teams begin play this week when both Williamsport (Low-A ball) and the Gulf Coast League Phillies (rookie ball) open their seasons.
Although these teams will not feature any of the Phillies' current top-10 prospects, both squads should feature prospects chosen in the two most-recent drafts. Once prospects are re-ranked, a couple of the Phillies' most recent draft picks may be playing in a short-season league and ranked as among the 10 best in the system.
In the meantime, those players currently ranked as top-10 prospects are continuing to work their way towards the major leagues. As the major league trade deadline approaches, the Phillies will not just look at ways for improving this season, but also into the future.
At that point, a number of these prospects, especially those already in Triple-A, could factor into upcoming decisions.
Just how well did those prospects ranked among the franchise's top-10—according to Baseball America—fare this past week?
Let’s take a look at whose stock is up and whose is down following Week 11.
