Of all the pieces in this series this is the least about looking back at the individual players and the most about looking at the community and the discussion generated here. I think the community’s list is on of the best in recent years and shows the growing knowledge of Philadelphia prospect watchers as a whole. Here is your 2013 Reader Top 30 prospects.

The report card on Starting Pitchers in the lower half of the organization. Remember, grades are against each pitchers pre-season expectations I had for them, not against each other. Next up are Relief Pitchers (LV, Reading and Clearwater)…lots of names, so I am shooting for Tuesday.
Mark Leiter, 22, Phils 22nd round draft pick in 2013 draft; 16 games (4 starts) between GCL, Lakewood and Clearwater; 45IP 34H 13BB 50K; 0.71 GO/AO; .210 opp. avg; 1.04 WHIP; 2.6BB/10.0K per nine; Leiter pitched extremely well after being drafted this year, having success at each level he pitched at. Grade: A; 2014: He will be 23 by the time the 2014 season starts and has done nothing to suggest he shouldnt start the season in CLearwater.
Miguel Nunez, 20, Signed as a free agent in 2010; 26 games (22 starts); 10-8 with a 4.22ERA; 130IP 136H 38BB 80K; 5HR allowed; 0.82 GO/AO; .270 opp. avg; .315 vs. LH, .239 vs. RH, .265 with RISP; 1.34WHIP; 2.6BB/5.5K per nine; Post All Star Break: 13 starts, 5-4 with a 3.59ERA.

He skipped over WIlliamsport to play in Lakewood this year and his 2013 should be considered very successful. Grade: B; 2014: Clearwater Continue reading Report Card, Starting Pitchers, Lower Half
