2022 Phuture Phillies Readers’ Vote: #3 Prospect

On to the vote for the third prospect in the organization.  There are 23 players listed in the poll below. 

The number two spot went to Mick Abel by a substantial margin.  He received 88 of the 120 votes cast (73.3%).  Logan O’Hoppe finished second with 16 votes (13.3%).  Andrew Painter received twelve.  Mickey Moniak received two.  Johan Rojas and Matt Vierling received one each.  The first poll votes for Jhailyn Ortiz and Francisco Morales disappeared.

In addition to voters in the US, we received votes from El Salvador, Korea, Israel, and France.  All of the overseas votes were cast for Abel.

A separate write-up on Abel can be found here.

    1. I have Painter here, but there is definitely some argument for ranking O’Hoppe this high. If this guy (O’Hoppe) hits his ceiling, he could be a 4-6 WAR player, which is huge.

  1. This list of top players in the entire Phillies system seems to credit the 2018 draft as having made some very good selections

    1. 2018 could produce more than Bohm and Vierling so far….O’Hoppe, Pipkin and maybe McArthur.

      2017 could also rival that draft class if Haseley can turn it around…Howard and Seabold will produce somewhere else .
      Keeping fingers crossed on Maton, Brogdon, Dohy and Damon Jones…plus Billy Sullivan technically was drafted that year but later signed as a UDFA out of Delaware Univ.

      1. Why do we hit on so many 5th round draft picks? I think there’s more to this than blind luck. It’s beyond bizarre. FYI – in addition to Ryan Howard, Rhys Hoskins, and Matt Vierling, Bailey Falter, MIckey Morandini and Cole Irvin (not great with the Phils but now a legit MLB starter) were also 5th round picks. Things are looking very good for Griff McGarry (although perhaps not so much for Barron Radcliff).

        1. Perhaps……at the draft, the GM decides to let certain scouting heads make the choice, since it is further down in the draft.
          I read somewhere some NFL teams do that on their third day selections, which typically would be 4th thru 7th round picks.
          In the Phillies case….whoever does it, they seem to be spot on.
          Yes agree…it certainly is bizarre.
