Five Phillies Prospects Make MLB Midseason Top 100 List
MLB Pipeline released their Midseason Top 100 prospect list on Wednesday and five Philadelphia Phillies prospects were on the list, led by shortstop J.P. Crawford at No. 3. Also included in the list is top pick Mickey Moniak (34), Nick Williams (62), Jorge Alfaro (72) and Jake Thompson (73). Meanwhile, Mark Appel, Cornelius Randolph and Roman Quinn dropped out of the top 100 due to injuries that have caused each of them to miss a good part of their respective seasons.
Phillies top prospect Crawford jumps from the fifth spot to number three in the rankings. After 36 games with Double-A Reading, Crawford was promoted to Triple-A, where he's seen mixed results. Overall with the Ironpigs, he's slashing .261/.336/.346 with nine doubles, a triple, three homers, 24 RBI's, 31 runs scored, 38 strikeouts and 26 walks. Although he's hitting just .167 over his last 10 games, Crawford has had a very strong July, hitting .311 with four doubles, three homers and 14 RBI's.
