Prospects like Adam Hasely, Scott Kingery and JP Crawford provide a sense of winning for the Phillies in the future. Rhys Hoskins also is a future star.

The Philadelphia Phillies may be one of the worst teams in baseball currently, but they have many good prospects. However, it won’t be long until the Phillies start to win consistently and make it to the playoffs.

The Phillies have one of the best farm systems in all of baseball, according to Baseball America. Six prospects in their farm system were ranked in the Top 100 Prospects by Baseball America.

One of the six top 100 prospects, Rhys Hoskins, is already making his mark with the major-league team. Since being called up to the big leagues Aug. 10, he has already made history. He is the first player to reach 11 home runs in 19 career games.

He’s already passed Miami Marlins Dee Gordon in total MLB home runs! At just 24-years-old and only 29 days of MLB service, the first baseman and outfielder has already shocked the baseball world. In the future, he’s likely to replace Tommy Joseph at first base.

However, anything can happen with the way Hoskins is performing and how Joseph has been in a slump since the All-Star break.

The other six top 100 prospects include, Outfielder Mickey Moniak (No. 13), right-handed pitcher Sixto Sanchez (No. 47), second baseman Scott Kingery (No. 52), catcher Jorge Alfaro (No. 81), shortstop J.P. Crawford (No. 92), and outfielder Adam Haseley (No. 98).

However, Crawford plummeted in the Top 100 prospect list by going down to 92nd overall from 12th. According to Baseball America editor John Manuel, “We don’t see him as an impact player anymore”. Looking at Crawford’s stats, it’s easy to see why. Regardless of his position, the Phillies are still in great shape to potentially make playoffs in the future.

Overall, the team does have a very bright future. With money coming in from Comcast after this season ends, which maybe can be used to acquire top notch stars like Giancarlo Stanton, and prospects who look very good and will almost certainly have a good career in the big leagues when they arrive.

It may not happen next season, or the season after, but it will eventually. Rebuilding takes time. Eventually, rebuilding will lead to a successful result and that is to win a championship!
