A new ranking of the Phillies top 30 prospects is now out

After releasing the new top 100 prospect ranking, MLB Pipeline has released the Phillies top 30 prospect list for 2020, which includes their first round pick from 2020, Mick Abel.

Included on the list is Spencer Howard, who made his major league debut against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Here’s a look at the new top 30 Phillies prospect list.

  1. Alec Bohm, 3B
  2. Spencer Howard, RHP
  3. Bryson Stott, SS
  4. Mick Abel, RHP
  5. Francisco Morales, RHP
  6. Adonis Medina, RHP
  7. Luis Garcia, SS
  8. Rafael Marchan, C
  9. Casey Martin, SS
  10. Enyel De Los Santos, RHP (Recently DFA’d)
  11. Erik Miller, LHP
  12. Simon Muzziotti, OF
  13. Mickey Moniak, OF
  14. Nick Maton, SS
  15. JoJo Romero, LHP
  16. Damon Jones, LHP
  17. Mauricio Llovera, RHP
  18. Johan Rojas, OF
  19. Cristopher Sanchez, LHP
  20. Jhailyn Ortiz, OF
  21. Rodolfo Duran, C
  22. David Parkinson, LHP
  23. Connor Seabold, RHP
  24. Yhoswar Garcia, OF
  25. Deivy Grullon, C
  26. Ethan Lindow, LHP
  27. Kendall Simmons, 2B
  28. Arquimedes Gamboa, SS
  29. Kyle Dohy, LHP
  30. Kyle Young, LHP

Looking back at 2018, a number of prospects are no longer on the list, though Cole Irvin likely “graduated” from the prospect list since he’s been in the big league bullpen.

Those who fell off the list include former first round pick Cornelius Randolph, Kevin Gowdy, Jamari Baylor, and Daniel Brito.

One guy who has fallen from earth is Arquimedes Gamboa, who was ranked as the 10th prospect in 2018 but fell to 22 in 2019 and now 28 this year.

However, the guy who fell from earth the most is former number one overall pick Mickey Moniak, who was once considered the Phillies top prospect and a top-30 prospect in baseball. He’s struggled ever since the Phillies took him in 2016, never finding the stroke he had in high school that had him rise up draft boards.
