With the Minor League Baseball season underway, let’s take a look at where the Phillies Top 50 prospects are starting their 2019 year in the organization. More information about these players is in my Phillies Top 50 Prospects. Next month, we’ll look more in-depth at each level’s roster to review the top hitters and pitchers along with the players who will break out this year. Hint – #12 and #18 here will be on that breakout list.

Here are the teams and the number of these Top 50 prospects on their roster:

Lehigh Valley IronPigs (AAA) – 8
Reading Fightins (AA) – 17
Clearwater Threshers (A+) – 9
Lakewood BlueClaws (A) – 13

4. Adam Haseley, OF
After a solid showing in Spring Training, Haseley is repeating Double-A ball at Reading this year.

Ortiz starts the year in Extended Spring Training.

Morales is part of a talented rotation in Lakewood to start the year.

One of my favorite players to keep an eye on this year, the outfielder starts the year in Clearwater.
