Simón Muzziotti

Similar to McGarry's inclusion in any potential trade package, also adding Simón Muzziotti would signify how aggressive the Phillies want to be. Originally signed by the Red Sox, Muzziotti is ranked 10th among prospects in Philadelphia.

The 24-year-old's main positive is his top-level speed, clearly an advantage whether on base or playing in the outfield. He's also started to fill out and add strength to his frame.

Offensively, Muzziotti is continuing to improve with the bat. In his first season of extended action at the Triple-A level, he's hit four homers and 45 RBI, on the way to a .326/.387/,439 slash line and .826 OPS.

The Venezuela native did make his Major League debut last season, but his chances have been limited so far in Philadelphia. If he stays he likely projects as outfield depth, but could get an opportunity to start more elsewhere.
