Top Prospects To Pitch In Phils Exhibition Opener

Baseball America has released its top-100 prospect list, and three Phillies made the cut. Check out the list over there.

Here are the Phillies listed (the text is a by-the-numbers statistic):

54. CARLOS CARRASCO
RHP, PHILLIES
1: Pitchers who have appeared in the last two Futures Games; Carrasco is the only one.
Opening Day Age: 21
ETA: 2009

76. ADRIAN CARDENAS
2B, PHILLIES
14: Errors at second base in 2007, his first season at the position.
Opening Day Age: 20
ETA: 2010

90. JOE SAVERY
LHP, PHILLIES
.356, 20: Batting average and homers in three seasons at Rice, though he’ll concentrate on pitching as a pro.
Opening Day Age: 22
ETA: 2010

Definitely surprising that three Phillies made the list. Savery pitches tonight for the Phils against Florida State University. He’ll be followed by Carrasco, then Joe Bisenius, Joshua Outman and JA Happ.

This first game is basically a chance to see the young kids do their thing. It won’t reveal much at all, considering these are college hitters they’ll be facing. But it’s a start, regardless.
