Seidman: Alfaro Has Chance To Be Most Impactful Prospect
The Phillies future is in Triple-A with a stacked lineup of several of the teams top prospects. Catcher Jorge Alfaro is tied for the team lead with Five RBI and 11 Hits while Roman Quinn has a .320 Batting Average. Also among the top prospects in the Triple-A Batting Order includes Rhys Hoskins, J.P. Crawford, Nick Williams, and Dylan Cozens.
CSNPhilly.com Phillies Beat Writer Corey Seidman joined The Sports Bash on Thursday and elaborated on the top three hitters at Triple-A in 2017:
"The three best hitters at Triple-A, right now, are: (1) Roman Quinn, who we saw last September (with the Phillies), he's off to another hot start, he seems to hit well in April every year. Problem with him is that he's been unable to stay healthy for a long period of time and this is his first chance to play at Triple-A and he's thriving. (2) Rhys Hoskins, the First Baseman with 38 Home Runs at Double-A and also did so with a high On-Base Percentage, he's off to a very good start at Triple-A as well. Phillies Director of Player Development Joe Jordan said before the season that he thinks that Rhys Hoskins is the smartest hitter on that Triple-A; that's pretty high praise when you consider all the prospects that are there. Third guy I want to mention is (Catcher) Jorge Alfaro....He has the chance to be the most impactful of all these Phillies prospects because of his two way ability, his ability to control (an opponents) running game and also hit for power from a position that really across Baseball there are few offensive threats behind the plate and Jorge Alfaro has the chance to be a big one."
