Baseballprospectus released their top 10 for the phillies,

The Top Ten
1.LHP Jesse Biddle
2.3B Maikel Franco
3.LHP Adam Morgan
4.IF Roman Quinn
5.C/1B Tommy Joseph
6.RHP Ethan Martin
7.3B Cody Asche
8.RHP Jonathan Pettibone
9.OF Carlos Tocci
10. RHP Shane Watson

Should be interesting to see what a couple of them can do over the next 2 years as a few should be getting very close to making the majors. Looking forward to seeing what Tocci can do as a 17 year old, if they will advance him to Lakewood (A-) or have him go to the crosscutters (NY Penn league, rookie ball). Also a big fan of Martin and Morgan to go with Biddle that's 3 possible good arms even if one ends up in the pen, could be huge if the phils could get some good cheap years out of at least one or two, in the next 2 years or so.

If Franco continues on the pace he had in the 2nd half of last year he could be a legit top 100 prospect imo, he struggled in the 1st half but once he got going it was really impressive to watch. Got to see him a good bit and he can mash, not very quick though and of course there will be talk about what his true age might be but if he's really 20 then the next 2 years should be very telling if the phils have a legit 3B prospect. Quinn is another one that is very exciting to watch, so damn fast, can't wait to see what he does at Lakewood assuming that's where he ends up. I expect he'll continue with the high error rate at SS since he's learning the position but his speed is elite and he looked good at the plate in the few times i saw him.
