Phillies Have 7 of the Top 100 Prospects, Most in MLB
According to the most recent MLBPipeline.com top 100 MLB prospect poll, the Phillies have fixed their farm system. Of the top 100 minor league players, seven are in the Phillies system, more than any other team in baseball.
Four of those top seven prospects joined the Phillies organization following most notably the Cole Hamels trade.
Here are the seven Phillies on the list and where they ranked:
5. SS J.P. Crawford
55. RHP Jake Thompson
64. OF Nick Williams
70. RHP Mark Appel
84. OF Cornelius Randolph
96. C Jorge Alfaro
99. OF Roman Quinn
