Baseball America releases a Top 100 for their best minor league baseball players heading into each season. Baseball America does a similar list for both college and high-school players.

The Phillies have two minor leaguers land on Baseball America’s Top 100 best prospects for the 2022 season. Mick Abel and Bryson Stott have both made their way onto this year’s edition.

Mick Abel was one of the two Phillies prospects to be featured on the list. Abel was selected with the 15th overall pick of the Phils in the 2020 Amateur Draft. The right-handed starter played for the Clearwater Threshers in 2021. Mick went 1-3 with a 4.43 era in 14 starts. Abel pitched 44.2 innings and flashed with 66 strikeouts. Mick Abel is expected to make the big leagues by the 2024 season.

Bryson Stott was the second of the two Phillies prospects to be named on the Top 100 list. Stott was selected 14th overall in the 2019 Amateur Draft by the Phils. Bryson is believed by some to be the best Phillies prospect currently in the system. Bryson has a chance to compete for a starting spot in Spring Training this season. Stott was named to All-Star Futures game in 2021 and showed out in the Arizona Fall League. Bryson Stott will most likely make his major league debut this season for the Phillies.
