BA Midseason Top 10 Phillies Prospects

Today BA put out their midseason Top 10 Phillies prospects.  I won’t comment too much about the list as I will have my own list out in about two weeks other than to say Kilome is ranked exactly where he should be.

  1. J.P. Crawford
  2. Aaron Nola
  3. Franklyn Kilome
  4. Zach Eflin
  5. Ben Lively
  6. Roman Quinn
  7. Carlos Tocci
  8. Tom Windle
  9. Ricardo Pinto
  10. Malquin Canelo

EDIT: 2015 draftees were not included in list.

Matt is originally from Mt. Holly, NJ, but after a 4 year side track to Cleveland for college he now resides in Madison, WI. His work has appeared on Phuture Phillies, The Good Phight, and TheDynastyGuru.


  1. Travis

    Randolph isn’t even top 10?

  2. keith

    I think Windle should drop, now that he is RP. Big move for Canelo.

  3. Romus

    Canelo seems a bit prematurely high at this time.
    Optimistically. I can see him in the mid-to-low teens.

  4. Tim

    Hoskins is a Surpise I know he’s a 1st baseman. Altherr too he’s having a good year.

  5. This seems old. Why are Randolph and Kingery left off while Windle and Lively are on?

      2015 draftees were not included on any of the team top 10s

  6. Jack

    I saw that Josh Norris mentioned Windle as becoming a SP again. Have you heard the same reports or is he just saying that?

    • Matt Winkelman

      It was definitely not a door that Joe Jordan or Windle indicated was closed when they talked about move to bullpen. I don’t think there is a set time he goes back, but it definitely could happen.

      • Jack

        What was the reason he was moved to the bullpen? I know statistically wise he struggled, but was his mechanics off? Is there a possible #4/#5 Starter still in him?

        • Jack

          Is this move for him allowing him to develop his changeup?

        • Matt Winkelman

          Mechanics were off and changeup wasn’t developing when they forced it. That was also causing him to struggle, work long innings, and just be a bad pitcher. Here he can air it out a bit, simplify, and tinker more with the changeup rather than struggle through it

        • Jack

          Alright Thanks. Hope he’ll be in the rotation soon
