2021 Philadelphia Phillies Top 15 Prospects

As was the case last year, it was a grind writing the Phillies Top 15 Prospect List.  The system starts strong with Spencer Howard and Mick Abel, the Phillies’ first-round pick last June.  Both could be excellent Major Leaguers and in fact, Howard looked good in his brief audition in 2020.  However, after that, the system drops off.  You can argue that there are no impact players after the first two. 

That said, there are three guys I find interesting.  The first player is Casey Martin, the Phillies third-round pick last June.  He’s tooled up with enticing fantasy skills but there are serious questions about his contact skills.  Rafael Marchan doesn’t have any power, but he can hit and is a great defender behind the plate.  Finally, Simon Muzziotti has plus speed and can also really hit, but like Marchan, has 30-grade power.

Is it enough to push the Phillies to a championship over the next three years?  I don’t think so and therefore, they should continue to dip into free agency and/or trades to try and bring a title to Philadelphia.
