  1. Charlie….. I mean Brandon Leibrandt. Isn’t it supposed to be “I” before “E” except after “C”? I guess not in this case.

  2. Jiandido is going to TROMP every single one of your expectations for him this year. 20+ homers across two levels and .275 combined clip. Could even end up in AA before the season is over.

  3. I actually do think the system is deeper than it’s been in quite some time (certainly, since we started doing this in 2006). Nobody’s even mentioned Sam Hiciano, but he’s as likely as Tromp to have a big breakout year (although, due to his overall tools, I agree that, right now, Tromp is probably a better prospect). Hiciano’s a C- level prospect, but he has an intriguing ceiling and I think there’s a real bat there. Yup, there are a lot of under the radar breakout candidates this year.

  4. I am glad Nefi finally got in. I voted for Astudillo. I think he continues to show he has that good hit tool, and will be part of a trade in the next couple of years. I see him as a DH.

  5. Joely Rodriguez for me as he will probably be up at AAA(Allentown) and could be in the majors in a year or two if he continues his improvement. If he makes to the Phillies soon than this trade is a winner.

  6. Oliver here, narrowly, over Rodriguez. A lot of people seemed to think that Oliver had 2nd round talent but dropped down the lists due to the DWI, etc. Rough start, but I could see at least a tiny chance of him flipping a switch, in a similar way that Adam Morgan did before he got injured. Morgan went from more or less completely off the radar screen (not ranked preseason 2012) to a Top 3 prospect in the system. That’s obviously a rare trajectory for a college pitcher, and I don’t think it’s likely with Oliver, but it does seem like the potential is there. I guess we also have to hope that his off-field issues are more maturity related, and a one-time thing, rather than addiction related, which would obviously affect his performance going forward. No way to know from afar, but anyhow, he’s my sleeper pick.

    1. Morgan and Asche both made the climb..
      Asche was not even a top 30 guy after his poor short-season 2011 start.
      Maybe Jim should have a mid-season poll again.

  7. Elniery Garcia is ninth on the Baseball Prospectus 2015 Phillies Prospect List. I figure they must know something.
