As the Philadelphia Phillies move closer to the non-waiver trade deadline and having to make decisions regarding their major league roster, the team made at least one decision this past week involving their farm system.
Maikel Franco was promoted to Double-A after batting .299 with 16 home runs and 52 RBI in the Florida State League. Franco’s promotion is a positive sign for one of the Phillies' top 10 prospects, but one that could also impact the futures of other top prospects.
Meanwhile, another top prospect, Jonathan Pettibone, could face either a stint on the disabled list or a demotion in favor of Carlos Zambrano this week, as Zambrano’s opt-out date draws nearer.
How did the rest of the Phillies' top 10 prospects fare last week?
Let’s take a look at whose stock is up and whose is down following Week 12.
