Five Phillies were named to Baseball America’s Top 100 Prospects for 2018. They are:

16. J.P. Crawford
25. Sixto Sanchez
31. Scott Kingery
84. Adonis Medina
100. Adam Haseley

Yes, that leaves out Mickey Moniak, which is what has been reported all day. The 2016 No. 1 pick struggled mightily in 2017 with Lakewood, hitting .236/.284/.341 with 109 strikeouts and 28 walks. A year like that will bring down your potential, in the eyes of tastemakers and experts.

This doesn’t mean he’s a bust, not by any means. He’s 19 and played his first full season of baseball in 2017.

Meanwhile it’s good to see Crawford in the top tier or so. Sanchez is rising fast. Kingery, also named the top second base prospect by MLB Pipeline, is definitely turning heads.

    I’m not surprised but DISAPPOINTED Freddy Galvis was traded. At least you know what you have with Freddy. As a Phillie fan I hope it works out. Moving forward I think Arrieta is definitely a piece of the pie towards a championship so let’s make it happen. Sincerely a diehard phan.
