Phuture Phillies 2019 Reader Top 30 Poll for the Phillies #1 Prospect

Welcome to the 2019 Reader Top 30!

Here we go.  This should take us through early February.  A week or so later, on February 12th or 13th, pitchers and catchers will report.  They’ll have their first work out the following day, signalling the start of spring training.  The first full squad work out is just a couple days later.  The Phillies’ Grapefruit League season begins on the 22nd.

I expect to publish five or six polls each week on a schedule that will allow me to conclude this process before spring training starts.  I decided to include all known eligible players in the first poll.  This first ballot is comprised of MLB’s top 30 prospects, the 2018 Phuture Phillies Post Season Top 30, and players on the 40-Man Roster who still have rookie eligibility.  That comes to a total of 39 players.

There will be no players added until I close and tabulate the currently running poll that will identify the players you think should be added (link).

The players in the poll are listed alphabetically – MLB = MLB Top 30, PP = Reader Top 30, and 40 = 40-man.

  • Drew Anderson (MLB, 40),
  • Alec Bohm (MLB, PP),
  • Daniel Brito (MLB, PP),

If you want to suggest a player you think I may have overlooked, you can make the request among the Comments section or e-mail prospectpoll@yahoo.com using the Subject Line – Add Prospect, but since I am going through a polling process to identify additional prospects, I will probably not consider such requests.  And, as last year, the Other option (a write-in vote) will not be used.
