TBOH 2015 Phillies #6 Prospect – Carlos Tocci


Carlos Tocci was considered one of the top international free agents available when the Phillies signed him in August of 2011 as a 16-year old out of Venezuela. Frankly, he is still just a kid. The teenager spent a 2nd consecutive season at Lakewood in 2014, and his tools remain ahead of his results. But those tools still flash with the potential of his being something special down the line. He has a fluid swing, and has speed and an arm that can both impact games. Many will see this is an extremely generous rank based on projection. But there is a reason that these kids are regarded so highly in the first place, and he continues to garner respect from the scouts as he has progressed over three pro seasons. To this point, he still looks like a nice projection guy. But any kind of true breakout season at any point would rocket him up prospect lists. I’m still buying for now.
