Phillies fans, are you ready to watch the best prospects in the organization take center stage in the upcoming MLB Spring Breakout?

In case you haven't heard, Major League Baseball has created an event that even Rob Manfred's biggest critics will likely enjoy. MLB Spring Breakout, which is being held March 14-17, 2024, will offer baseball's top prospects the opportunity to compete against one another.

The Philadelphia Phillies squad, led by top pitching prospect Mick Abel, will go head-to-head with the best prospects from the Detroit Tigers on March 16 at 1:05 p.m. ET. You can watch the game right here in this article on That Ball's Outta Here.

The live stream for the seven-inning game will run in an embedded player.

While the All-Star Futures Game, which is held every July, is always entertaining, it can't compare to watching the top Phillies prospects all competing while playing on the same team. Though Andrew Painter won't be part of the event, the other Top 100 Phillies prospects like Abel, Aiden Miller, and Justin Crawford will be part of the action.

Phillies assistant general manager of player development Preston Mattingly said, “I don’t want to tip our hand yet. But we could potentially line up Mick to pitch a few innings.” That's great news for Philly fans who want to see how much the former first-round pick has progressed over the years. Abel made it all the way to Triple-A Lehigh Valley in 2023 and is knocking on the major league door.

There are some differences between your typical Grapefruit League game and what Phillies fans will see on March 16. The game itself is only seven innings, but in order to help showcase all the pitching talent in the Phillies farm system, there's no three-batter minimum. Some games will even feature Major League Baseball's new Automated Ball-Strikes (ABS) system at certain ballparks.
