Phillies fans have been banging the gavel all season for prospects to be called up, and there are several who could be in Philadelphia by the end of 2017.

With a 28-59 record at the All-Star Break, this season is no longer about wins and losses for the Phillies. Instead, it is about the development of the younger players on the team and figuring out which players they want on their team in the future. Part of that development involves promoting some of your top prospects and seeing how they perform at the major-league level.

Several of the team’s top-level prospects have made their debuts this season like Nick Williams, Nick Pivetta, Ben Lively, and Ricardo Pinto. In the last two and a half months of the year, we could several more make their way to the majors. Let’s take a look at five who could be in the major-leagues by the end of 2017.
