Following June’s First-Year Player Draft and the first half of a majority of minor league seasons, we now have an updated ranking of the Philadelphia Phillies’ top 10 prospects.
The new ranking, according to Bob Brookover, Matt Gelb and Marc Narducci on Philly.com, sees both new names and some shuffling of previously highly ranked prospects.
Between Jonathan Pettibone losing his prospect status, Darin Ruf’s first taste of Triple-A and the Phillies having a first-round draft choice for the first time since 2010, the updated rankings feature three new names.
Additionally, between injuries and outstanding seasons so far, some players’ rankings have either increased or decreased since prior to the season.
Which players are now considered top 10 prospects? Which players have seen their ranking improve based on their first-half performances?
Let’s take a look at whose stock is up, whose stock is down and who is new to the list following Week 16.
