STEP RIGHT UP! STEP RIGHT UP! You, YES YOU, can sign any undrafted free agent for just $20,000. THAT’S RIGHT! For just 20k big ones, your team could sign a genuine prospect. Since the abbreviated 5-round draft ended, MLB teams can now sign any undrafted player for no more than $20,000. The Phillies have been […]Read more "Phillies looking for a very specific type of pitcher in undrafted free agency"
Earlier in the week, Baseball America released its preseason top 100 prospect list. The Phillies found themselves with 2 players listed within the top 100. More importantly, both were listed among the top 30 prospects in all of baseball.

It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Phillies’ inability to not only draft talent, yet develop as well has been poor over the years.

Sanchez, who was signed to a $35,000 signing bonus in 2015, pitched well, going 6 strong innings while giving up 4 hits, a walk, an earned run, 4 strikeouts, and came away […]Read more "Phillies Prospect Scout Report: Sixto Sanchez flashes in win over Rome Braves"
The Phillies farm system is certainly known in big part because of its outfield depth. Mickey Moniak, Nick Williams, and Roman Quinn are #2, #5 and #7 respectively on MLB Pipeline’s top-30 team prospect rankings, and all are expected to be good, perhaps even great, outfielders for the team in the future. Further down the […]Read more "Minor League Spotlight: What does the future hold for Phillies LF Andrew Pullin?"
