The Philadelphia Phillies farm system was ranked 23rd of 30 clubs, as Baseball America released the 2022 edition of its Major League Baseball organization talent rankings.

With two prospects ranked in the site’s top 100, Mick Abel (51) and Bryson Stott (67), the Phillies moved up from last year’s rankings but still find themselves in the bottom third of the league. The team was ranked No. 27 in 2021 and No. 26 the year before.

Baseball America acknowledged that while Abel and 2021 first rounder Andrew Painter are talented high-end pitching prospects at the lower levels, the Phillies lack impact talent in the upper minors aside from Stott. The lack of minor-league depth is a problem that has hurt the Phillies in recent seasons as they’ve failed to make the playoffs despite success from their major-league stars.

The Phillies system ranked fourth in the National League East behind the Mets (16), Marlins (20) and Braves (22), while it finished ahead of the 26th-ranked Nationals. The Pirates were deemed to have the best system in the National League at No. 3.

Baseball America named the Seattle Mariners farm system the top in MLB for 2022.
