Ricardo Pinto: June, 2019
Another less-known name in the Phillies top 10 prospects is Ricardo Pinto. He’s been in the Phillies system for years, starting in the Venezuelan league back in 2012. He was dominant at the lower-levels of the Phillies system, finishing with a sub-3.00 era every year.
Since being promoted to Reading, Pinto is looking to bring down his home runs allowed. He’s let 14 balls out of the park already this year, which won’t bode well in Citizens Bank Park. His 73 strikeouts are impressive, but he needs to keep the ball down to be successful.
