  1. Now that De Los Santos is off the board, my next pick will be Cole Irvin. Ortiz dropped to #15 on my list. He’s young and he was hurt a bit last year but I think his dropped a lot. I hope he’ll come back this year and he’ll be back in my top 10 but right now, he’s sliding.

    My next 4 picks will be starters and most of them lefties. Irvin, Suarez, Morales, Parkinson and Will Stewart are next. All of them, except Stewart, are getting votes right now. Stewart is my guy to watch. Last year, he started the season at 20 yo. He played at LKW and started 20 games. He was 8 – 1 with a 2.06 ERA and a .977 WHIP. He had a 1.7 BB/9 and a 7.2 K/9. Parkinson is 2 years older and was a little bit better than Stewart’s numbers. The 2 years younger makes Stewart very interesting to me. I’m wondering where everyone else has Stewart. He wasn’t in our top 30 at the end of last season but I had him very high.

    1. Those are all good talents and they’ll all be coming up in short order. Morales and Ortiz probably have the higher ceiling but their likelihood of reaching it is lower. My pick for next was Suarez. He didn’t look great when he got called up last year but I really think he’s better than that and will do better this coming year. A bunch of these guys are close at this point.

    2. Stewart is probably in the 15-20 range for me. The scouting reports seem a little tepid, but he’s got age on his side and being a lefty. He had a fantastic April/May and then was good for the rest of the year but not as dominant. Maybe he tired a little.

  2. Muzziotti’s Fangraphs writeup, in which he was given a 45 FV and compared to Ender Inciarte, has me considering him next.

    1. Yeah he was my comp in 2017….but the Sox had him comped at Ellsbury when they signed him….which I cannot see anymore, with his projected lower overall ISO.

  3. I’m going Gowdy for #10. Without the injury I believe he wouldve be in the top, and I’m stretching a bit to push him in there… but after the first two months or less of the season, will see why he should be there. It will be an embarrassment of riches for the Phillies when he does.

    1. He’s a wild card but tough to put him here. He’s an unknown at this point. Eyes will certainly be on him in ST as he’s supposed to be ready to go. He’ll probably start in Extended.

    2. #10 seems a stretch for a player who was #12 in our 2017 poll, unranked in our 2018 poll, and missed a whole year of development while rehabbing last season. He threw 20 pitches in two thirds of an inning at the end of Instructs. His first two months of the 2019 season will likely be in XST before starts in the GCL and maybe Williamsport before, hopefully, some innings in Lakewood.

      I like the kid. A lot. But, I don’t see how I could vote him in the top twenty let alone the top ten.

  4. I really like Irvin next. I have him at 9 and thought I might be near the highest on him. I think it’s a good left arm and having seen him in AA and AAA I’ve seen him improve—I like that continued upwards trajectory.

    Just some others who were mentioned, I’ve got Ortiz at 12, Morales at 14, Muzziotti at 16, Suarez at 17 and Llovera just behind Ed Garcia at 19 (Garcia’s a year younger and at a higher level) Stewart I have buried at 46 with a note next to his name that he needs to be higher. 26-50 all have notes I have to clean up before I can publish. Maybe I can get to that later today.
