The name to keep track on, obviously, is Donald, who is flat raking down in Mesa. He’s also been playing some third base down there, as the Phils are hoping to get him acclimated to that position. It’s possible Donald could take over the position as early as late 2009. I wouldn’t be surprised if Donald was with the Phils as a backup infielder by midseason.

Slayden has pop, hitting two homers so far. He’s an outside chance at being a fifth outfielder. Brummett and Carpenter are the other ranked prospects, and both had shaky 2008 seasons, with Carpenter even seeing an inning in Philadelphia. Both would likely start 2009 in Lehigh Valley with Overholt and Escalona, looking for a chance to contribute to the big league club.
