Phuture Phillies 2020 Reader Top 30 Poll for the Phillies #23 Prospect

Luke Leftwich was selected as the organization’s #22 prospect.  He received 59 of the 199 votes cast (30%).  Deivi Grullon finished second receiving 39 votes (20%).  Mauricio Llovera received 19 votes.  Starlyn Castillo received 17 votes.  Cole Irvin and Connor Brogdon received 10 votes.

I know some of you aren’t happy again.  Let me remind y’all that this is a readers’ poll.  Not a select readers’ poll.  Or, a commenters’ poll.

I went back and looked at how James started the Readers’ Poll.  Originally, he asked for names in the Comments section and he had to tally them up.  By the third year he started using polls, but they included just 5 names plus Other, then later 7 names plus Other.

I was going to complete this year’s with one last poll and ask you to choose 10 names.  After looking at James’ early polls, I’ve decided to continue with daily polls, but limit the number of choices.

I’m also going to hide the results during the polling process.

Here are the remainder of the results from the last poll.

Christopher Sanchez received 9 votes.  Kyle Young received 7 votes.  Jhailyn Ortiz received 6 votes.

Addison Russ and Josh Stephen received 3 votes each.

Andrew SchultzDavid Parkinson, Cornelius Randolph, Bailey Falter, Dominic Pipkin, Darick Hall, and Jamari Baylor received 2 votes.

Colton Eastman, Jonathan Guzman, and Andrick Nava received 1 vote each.

  1. I’ve got Grullon and Llovera as the next two picks as I have for a little while now. Grullon had quite a good year for a 23 year-old catching prospect in AAA. If his defense comes along and he continues to hit, they are going to have to either promote or trade him. Llovera is supposed to have an excellent arm and could be a guy who comes out of seemingly nowhere to be a very solid bullpen piece if he can’t get traction this year as a starter. He has intriguing upside.

    1. Jim,

      Thank you for your perseverance and patience for putting this process in place and for dealing with the inevitable shenanigans. It would have been very easy to just shut this down. Glad you didn’t.

      Like the short list. Llovera, Castillo, Grullon for me. Soon after would be Baylor and Santos if they somehow find their way back on the list.

    2. I can’t shake the feeling that in spite of his numbers and age, the team only views Grullon as a fringe guy. Still, this is about the right spot for him but not before a guy with a chance to be an impactful player like Castillo, IMO.

    1. I found out about because someone, I think it was James, posted about it on It was love at first site.. no pun intended. I stopped reading shortly after that. PP was all I needed.

  2. Yes, the Leftwich Family Reunion where everyone and their cousins submitted an e-vote for Luke!

    1. That’s an interesting bet. I’m not sure which way I’d vote. I know that Irvin looked very good after he came back up late in the year. I really just want a few of our top arms to actually pitch well this season after called up to the bigs. Last year, Ranger settled down and had himself a pretty decent rookie year. Can he follow that up? Will he make the opening pen? Questions..,,
