2022 Phuture Phillies Readers’ Vote: #7 Prospect

On to the vote for the #7 prospect in the organization.  There are 28 prospects listed in the poll below.  I have added four new players.

The number six spot went to Luis Garcia by a large plurality.  He received 41 of 111 votes (36.9%).  Matt Vierling finished second with 21 votes (18.9%).  Hans Crouse finished third with 15 votes.  Erik Miller received nine, Francisco Morales six, Ethan Wilson five,  Yhoswar Garcia four, and Mickey Moniak three.  Jhailyn Ortiz and Griff McGarry received two votes each.  Jordan Viars, Simon Muzziotti, and Christian McGowan received one vote each.

In addition to voters in the US, we received votes from Korea (Matt Vierling) and France (Luis Garcia).

A separate write-up on Luis Garcia can be found here.

The four new prospects are Jean Cabrera, Carlo Reyes, Nicolas Torres, and Gabriel Yanez.

  1. The Drone. Yhoswar Garcia here for me. He could be the most exciting prospect in the entire system.

  2. same for me. I expect either YGarcia or Rojas to be our long term future CF. Miller next for me. I think he has a chance to be really good.

  3. Going with Vierling.
    For a guy from Missouri, he showed me what he is able and capable of doing.
    Consistency will be the key for him..

  4. Ethan Wilson here. Has the pedigree, high pick, good scouting reports. Hasn’t had much chance to show what he can do yet but he could make real noise next year if the bat lives up to expectations.

  5. Looks like the poll’s closed. Not a bad thing since I’m not sure who I would have chosen. Lots of folks like Y. Garcia but his debut was hardly impressive from a statistical standpoint and he’s not especially young. I worry he will be another in a long line of athletic and ultra skinny outfielders who simply aren’t strong enough to thrive in the majors. We have specialized in these guys and I’m not sure why. Rojas has enough quick twitch bat speed to overcome that – most don’t.

    1. I don’t want the next Billy Hamilton – I want the next Juan Soto or Ronald Acuna – just saying.

      1. My guess is we will know a lot more about him in the next couple of years, but it’s not like he set the world on fire last year.

      2. Agree with you when it comes to the physique of many of the Latin players the Phillies seem to gravitate to.
        I suppose middle infielders are one thing…but OFers should be rather bigger..of course Jhailyn Ortiz was one who went a little too big, but he has trimmed down a lot over the last 3 years.
        If there is someone to keep one eye out for , could be $1.4M signee, Yemal Flores, who could be stateside this spring depending on how the Phillies feel his develop is coming along.
        He is listed with some compact size.
        BA’s take….: “Flores has a strong, sturdy build and big power. It comes at the expense of some swing-and-miss tendencies, but Flores generates loft, backspin and drives the ball with impact when he connects.”
