While deciding to stand pat at the non-waiver trade deadline, the Philadelphia Phillies promoted two of their top 10 prospects this past week.
Cody Asche and Ethan Martin were both promoted from Triple-A, although it’s still unclear how long Martin will remain in the major leagues.
Asche, meanwhile, now has a chance to audition to become the team’s starting third baseman heading into next season.
Both Asche and Martin join Jonathan Pettibone, Darin Ruf and Justin De Fratus as top prospects who began the season in Triple-A and are now on the major league roster.
Players such as Jake Diekman, Michael Martinez, Joe Savery and the recently promoted Zach Miner also began the season in Triple-A.
Will any of the Phillies’ other top 10 prospects earn a promotion this season? How did the rest of the team’s top 10 prospects, according to MLB.com’s 2013 Prospect Watch, fare this past week?
Let’s take a look at whose stock is up and whose is down following Week 18.
