The Philly Baseball Insider ranking of the Top 50 Prospects in the Phillies organization

Thanks to input from scouts, writers and other members of the baseball fraternity, Philly Baseball Insider presents our annual list of the Top 50 Prospects in the Phillies organization.

To be eligible for our annual list, a player must still have full MLB Rookie of the Year eligibility remaining, meaning that he does not have more than 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the majors during a previous season(s), and, he has not accumulated more than 45 days on a major league roster during the 25-player limit, excluding time on the disabled list. In other words, players like Maikel Franco and Aaron Nola are no longer eligible for our annual list.

Players who joined the organization after January 1, 2016 are also not included in the list, and a players given age is as of January 4, 2016.

Be sure to watch for scouting reports on each of the Top 50 Prospects and other players in the Phillies organization over the coming weeks.
