I struggled writing the Phillies system last year. A lot of players had down seasons in 2019 and with the missed 2020 season, and little information to go on, there weren’t a lot of positive stories to write about. This year was different.
Many of their young players have gotten better. Johan Rojas had a great season where he showed speed, growing power, and a much-improved approach. Luis Garcia did as well and is back on track to being a prospect again. Finally, Logan O’Hoppe, a defensive catcher also improved his approach, reducing his striking out rate in a meaningful way. He now looks like a legitimate prospect. Throw in Mick Abel, Bryson Stott, Andrew Painter, and even newly acquired Hans Crouse, and the Phillies have something upon which they can build.
