Phillies Prospect Report: Threshers’ Slugger Turning Heads
Trending Down: Dalton Guthrie, 3B, Lakewood
Guthrie has had a rather pedestrian start to 2018. He is hitting .242 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 45 games.
While it could be worse, he isn’t bringing much else to the table. His OBP is .280, and he only has 11 extra-base hits.
The future at third base is still unclear for the Phillies, especially with Gabe Kapler playing J.P. Crawford at third since his return from the DL. Most likely, trades will make the situation a bit more clear later this summer, but for now, Guthrie needs to step up his game for the organization to notice him.

If he can get on base more often and string together a few more extra base hits, the son of former big league pitcher Mark Guthrie will be a much more complete player.
