Phillies Call-up Candidates: Tommy Joseph, Cam Perkins Lead the Pack
The 2016 season for the Phillies is one with not a whole lot of expectation besides their young talent development. 29 games into the season, it may be time to consider adding some more youth to the club, especially with guys like Darin Ruf and Emmanuel Burriss stumbling offensively. It doesn't seem like any of the Phillies elite prospects, including J.P. Crawford, Jake Thompson and Nick Williams, are going to get the call just yet, but there are a few guys the team should look at giving a try. Today, we take a look at some call-up candidates for the Phillies.
- Tommy Joseph (1B) - The cornerstone of the Hunter Pence trade from 2012 is off to a hot start in Triple-A. Serving primarily as a DH and first baseman, Joseph is hitting .353 this season, good for second in the International League.
