Phillies Have 3 Top-100 Prospects in MLB Pipeline
MLB Pipeline released its updated list of top 100 prospects on Saturday, with the Phillies placing three players on the list after having just two last season.
Philadelphia's top prospects are third baseman Alec Bohm (No. 30), pitcher Spencer Howard (No. 34), and shortstop Bryson Stott (No. 87).
Bohm, a first-round draft pick in 2018, could be in the majors as soon as this season and will be with the team in Spring Training. He is rated as the top 3B of all the prospects.
In Double-A last year, Bohm hit 269 with 14 home runs and 42 RBIs in 238 at bats. Overall in three minor league stops, he hit .305 with 21 home runs and 80 RBIs.
As for Howard, a second-round draft pick in 2018, he appeared in 15 games last season going 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA, along with 94 strikeouts in 71.0 innings. MLB Pipeline lists 2020 as his predicted year of arrival, meaning he might get a call-up at some point during this season.
Stott was the teams first-round pick in 2019, and is predicted to be in the majors sometime around 2023.
