Here we will take a look at several former Phillies prospects from the past few years who just never panned out

Baseball prospects have well-known volatility. Players take several years from when they’re drafted or signed internationally to reach the majors. The Phillies have had plenty of prospects succeed (Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, Maikel Franco), but at the same time many have failed.

If you go back and look at top prospect lists from several years ago, there are plenty of names you wouldn’t recognize. Some may still be toiling away in the Phillies system, while others could be out of baseball entirely by now.

However, there have been some who fell further than others. Some prospects who had the praise of multiple baseball outlets, yet are nowhere to be seen on the Phillies roster.

Here we will take a look at several former Phillies prospects from the past few years who just never panned out. To keep this concise, I will limit this list to the last ten years.

Dishonorable Mentions: Larry Greene, Brody Colvin, Sebastian Valle, Jonathan Pettibone, Ethan Martin, Tyson Gillies, J.C. Ramirez, Cody Asche
