BNS - Philadelphia Phillies: Top 10 Prospects For 2013


1) A lifelong Phillies fan who hails from the area and a family of Phillies die-hards, 21-year-old left-hander Jesse Biddle was a first round pick (27th overall) out of high school in 2010. He has finished among the leaders in strikeouts and ERA in the South Atlantic League in 2011 and the Florida State League in 2012. Biddle is slated to open this season at Double-A Reading.

2) A second round pick in 2011, 19-year-old Roman Quinn could be the successor at shortstop to Jimmy Rollins in Philadelphia. A switch-hitter with exceptional speed who knows how to get on base, Quinn swiped 30 bases and batted .286 in 66 games and 267 at-bats at Williamsport in the New York-Penn League last season. He could eventually move to second base or the outfield as well.

3) A 21-year-old right-handed hitting catcher, Tommy Joseph was the centerpiece for the Phillies in last summer’s Pence trade with the Giants. He has improved behind the plate, and can generate power at the plate. Joseph spent last season at Double-A and will likely get his first taste of Triple-A in 2013.
