Phillies and Off-season Leagues

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Off-season leagues in Arizona and Venezuela have started up. Baseball America releases its Eastern League top prospects list.

Some links and updates on the Phillies farm and off-season leagues:

Reading Phillies

Baseball America released their list of Top 20 Eastern League prospects. Tommy Joseph (#10), Cody Asche (#17), and Jon Pettibone (#19) made the list. Babe Ruf did not:

Reading first baseman/outfielder Darin Ruf won the EL MVP award, almost took the league's triple crown and led the minors with 38 homers (including 20 in JulyAugust) but didn't crack the Top 20. He's 26 and scouts aren't sold that he'll be able to handle major league pitching.

Other Phillies Farm Teams

BA also released their Top 20 of the International League. Tyler Cloyd (#19) was the only Iron Pig to be included. Heading the list are Matt Harvey (RHP, Mets), Starling Marte (OF, Pirates), Chris Archer (RHP, Rays), Julio Teheran (RHP, Braves), and Chris Parmelee (1B, Twins).

For the Florida State League, Clearwater lefties Jesse Biddle (#10), and Adam Morgan (#12) both made the list. The top five are Jose Fernandez (RHP, Marlins), Gerrit Cole (RHP, Pirates), Jameson Tallon (RHP, Pirates), Christian Yelich (OF, Marlins), and Nick Castellanos (3B, Tigers).

3B Maikel Franco (#16) was the only Blue Claw on the Sally League list.

Shortstop Roman Quinn was the 3rd ranked prospect in the short-season New York-Penn League.

Outfielder Carlos Tocci was ranked 6th for the Gulf Coast League.

Venezuelan Winter League

As Jay Floyd reported (h/t crowhop), Freddy Galvis went 4 for 5 with a home run in his first game in the VWL. Phillies farmhands playing in Venezuela:

Freddy Galvis, IF
Cesar Hernandez, 2B, AAA
Edgar Duran, SS, A
Justin Friend, RHP, AA
Darin Ruf, 1B/OF, AA
Tyson Gillies, OF, AA

The Phils are scattered across several teams: Galvis with Zulia, Hernandez and Duran with Margarita, Friend and Ruf with La Guaira, and Gillies with Lara.

Arizona Fall League

Matt Gelb had a nice primer on the AFL this week. The Phillies have several players on the Peoria Javelinas, who are led by Reading manager Dusty Wathan:

Tommy Joseph, C, AA
Cody Asche, 3B, AA
Zach Collier, OF, A
Jay Johnson, LHP, AA
Tyler Knigge, RHP, AA
Colby Shreve, RHP, AA
Kyle Simon, RHP, AA

Off-season League Stats

This is a handy list that captures the stats of all Phillies in the off-season leagues, which is easier than looking up individual teams and leagues. It’s missing Galvis for some reason, but hopefully it’s just not caught up on all the games.
