How The Philadelphia Phillies View Their Pitching Prospects

The Philadelphia Phillies’ prospect rankings are officially available, providing insight into the club’s plans for next season and beyond.
The Phillies’ Top 10 Prospects for 2024 Have Been Revealed

The top ten prospects in the Phillies’ newest prospect power rankings, according to Baseball America, are:

RHP Justin Crawford, 19 Years Old, Andrew Painter, 20 Years Old Outfield
Mick Abel, a 22-year-old man, RHP
Aidan Miller, 19, plays third base.
Shortstop Starlyn Caba, 18 years old
RHP Orion Kerkering, 22 years old
Bryan Rincon, 19, is a shortstop.
Shortstop William Bergolla, 19 years old
Catcher Eduardo Tait, 17 years old

  1. Gabriel Rincones, 22 Years Old, Outfield

And with the prospect rankings beginning to take shape, speculation about when and where we might see the future of the Phillies take the diamond has intensified. After MLB announced a new “Spring Breakout” event for 2024, which will serve as a four-day showcase for every franchise’s minor league stars, we could have some answers sooner than expected.

The Phillies will play 20 to 25 prospects at Spring Breakout, and fans should expect to see the majority of the farm system’s talents, although Crawford, Miller, and Tait may be the most likely to have star moments.

Crawford is the son of former MLB outfielder Carl Crawford and a top-100 prospect in baseball. He was drafted by the Phillies in the first round of the 2022 draft, and his career debut saw him steal eight bases in 11 games. Despite the fact that the Phillies’ center field is very crowded, with both Brandon Marsh and Johan Rojas exhibiting good defense there last season, Crawford promises to be a valuable addition.

Miller is also ranked among the top 100 MLB prospects, with a ton of plate power at a valuable position. As he grows in size, he may shift from third to first, but the Phillies won’t mind if he can improve on his slugging ability as the champion of the All-American Game Home Run Derby in 2022.

And Tait should draw attention if he ends up in the Spring Breakout as a 17-year-old catcher, with the potential to make headlines if he reaches his full ability. Front offices have already taken notice of his power and developing feel for the catcher position.

“President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski has mentioned him multiple times wherever he talks about prospects that other teams covet,” Todd Zolecki wrote in a piece for

Which Philadelphia Phillies prospect may make a major league debut in 2024?

Orion Kerkering, ranked sixth in the most recent prospect power rankings, made his major league debut last season. And fans may be wondering who will get the opportunity to do the same in 2024.

You never know, but Rincon, who has been one of the finest defensive shortstops in the minor levels, appears to be the most likely Cinderella story to play out with the big league club next season.

“Rincon, who turns 20 in February, is a switch-hitting shortstop with good plate discipline and strong defense,” The Athletic’s Matt Gelb explained. “As his body matures, he has a chance to really hit, which is why rival evaluators like him.”
