Brown, Singleton Make MLB.com’s Top 50 Prospect List

(Originally posted Jan 25 at 10:40 pm.)

In case you missed it….

Furnished by MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo, MLB.com’s Top 50 Prospects list features two Phillies farmhands this season.

Top Philly prospect Domonic Brown comes in at No. 4 on Mayo’s list, behind the Angels’ Mike Trout, Rays’ Jeremy Hellickson and Nationals’ No. 1 pick Bryce Harper. First baseman Jonathan Singleton, who burst onto the scene with a strong first half in 2010, came in at No. 30.

Across Double-A and Triple-A in 2010, Brown, 23, hit .327/.391/.589 with 20 HR in 389 plate appearances. Brown retains his “prospect” – and rookie – eligibility by accruing fewer than 130 at-bats and 45 days of service before the September 1 roster expansion date. Singleton, 19, hit .290/.393/.479 with 14 HR in 450 plate appearances for Single-A Lakewood in 2010. Singleton will reportedly see time in left field this season.
