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

Christopher Sanchez was selected as the organization’s #29 prospect.  He received 37 of the 128 votes cast (29%).  Cole Irvin finished second with 29 votes (23%).  Josh Stephen  finished third with 17 votes and Andrew Schultz finished fourth with 16 votes.

Colton Eastman received 7 votes each.  Addison Russ and Bailey Falter received 6 votes each.  And, David Parkinson received 4 votes.  Jamari Baylor received 2 write-in votes.  Gunner MayerJack ConleyRixon Wingrove, and Kyle Glogoski received one write-in vote each.

With Ortiz’ selection, back to a bunch of names.  I thought “Other” would have offered a better results than we received.  These are the last names I am adding to the poll.  The following deserving souls will be added – Brandon Ramey, Jamari Baylor, Victor Santos, Juan Aparicio, Gunner Mayer, Brett Schulze, Andrick Nava, Jonas De La Cruz, Wilfredo Flores, Edgar Made, Guarner Dipre, Rixon Wingrove, Alexis Azuaje, Zach Warren, Josh Hendrickson, Chris Micheles, and Ben Brown.

Remember, I am going to run several polls past thirty.  Let’s assume that they are so that I have prospects on hand to add to the top thirty as other prospects graduate to the Phillies, lose prospect status, are traded to another organization, or for some other reason are dropped from the top thirty.

I plan on running through a 35th poll.

Poll results will remain hidden.

  1. Alec Bohm

  1. I went with Schultz, but any one of Schulze, Baylor, Russ, Stephen or Russ would be a legitimate pick here.

    This system is funny. It’s oddly deep. After the first 2 or 3 prospects, the quality goes down a lot, but then it actually stays fairly steady until the low 30s – there’s not that big of gap between the guys ranked 5 and 6 and those at the end of the top 30 into the low 30s (if we went that far). Here’s an example. Mickey Moniak is #5 and Josh Stephen probably won’t be in the top 30, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Stephen ended up having a better major league career than Moniak. Similarly, Schultz and Schulze may not make the top 30, but either of these guys could end up having a much better career than Connor Seabold.

    1. the most common criticism about the Phillies farm in the past few years is the lack of impact/elite talent in the top. Aaron Nola is probably the best prospect developed by the farm in the last 10 years and most pundits don’t consider him elite.

      this lack of elite talent is consistent with the current FO and Johnny A.’s philosophy —- risk averse and poor eye in talent evaluation.

      1. Well, Nola and Hoskins were Marty Woelever’s last draft so he can’t take credit for those guys.

        I didn’t like Almaraz’s overall philosophy, which gave us the Cornelius Randolph pick and a lot of soft tossers, but he did hit on some draft picks, including Spencer Howard, Scott Kingery, Alec Bohm and Adam Haseley and perhaps Connor Seabold. On the whole, I’d give Johnny like a C or a C- which, for a rebuilding team, isn’t very good, but it’s not a disaster either.

  2. Ya frankly I’m just guessing at this point since most of these guys with the exception of Russ, Stephens, and Irving I have not seen.

    Russ has been a good reliever in AA…. Don’t really see Stephens in MLB with Phil’s. And unless Irving gets a Jamie Moyer type mojo going…..

    Inclined more toward unknowns like Baylor or Shultz, however Parkinson did looked good on paper until last year. Since Baylor has unknown potential and Shultz is a reliever, gonna give Baylor the nod but probably should not vote since just guessing. I’ll wait a bit if someone wants to give me there thoughts on these guys if you have seen them. Maybe throw Santos in there as well.

  3. My personal list has:

    21 Gunner Mayer
    22 Brett Schulze
    23 Josh Gessner
    24 Jhailyn Ortiz
    25 Jamari Baylor
    26 Ben Brown

    … so I’ll keep voting Mayer until he’s picked.
