2012 Phils Roster Projections: Short-Season

Short-season ball is meant for young players who need more work before they hit the big time in a full-season league. The Phillies have some young players who figure to be back in a short-season league in 2012.

Of course, many of the players on the Williamsport and Gulf Coast League rosters aren't even in the Phillies organization yet, and won't be until the 2012 June Draft. Of those that are in the organization, we've got a look at some players who are likely to start the 2012 season in extended spring training and be assigned to either Williamsport or the GCL Phillies when they start their seasons next June. Some of these players could also serve as replacements for injured players at Lakewood earlier in the season.
