  1. Thanks for this. With an uncertain future for us Phillies fans, a nice glimmer of hope.

  2. Mike – What is your initial take of Larry Greene? He seems like a power, OBP guy, and his numbers indicate that, but it doesn’t sound like you were impressed at all.

  3. Quinn and Walding will be very exciting guys for you to follow. I love the fact they are letting Quinn work at SS and Walding will find a nice home at 3B. Many organizations would like to have so much talent on the left side of an infield at the MILB level.

  4. Yeah I’m also interested to hear the opinion of him, I’m pretty shocked how patient he is.

    Lots of interesting prospects there IMO. Between the 3 mentioned above, and Brian Pointer/Chris Serritella, it’s at least something positive for the org although the pitching staff is god awful in Williamsport this year.

  6. I saw a recent Williamsport-TriCity game in which Quinn had one of the roughest SS performances I have seen. He was officially charged with 2 errors but should have been charged with 3 (a misplayed and misthrown one-hopper right at him an was mercifully later changed from an error to a single) and he could have been charged with a 4th on a missed catch on a steal attempt tag. Even when he made a nice attempt to catch a blooper hit to short center he managed to knock the ball far enough away to turn the single into a double. He got the proverbial Bronx cheer from the crowd later in the night when he eventually handled a catch and throw flawlessly. At the plate, Quinn managed to put 3 balls in play for outs in 3 plate appearances versus Vincent Velasquez, one ball being hit well, which is more than can be said for most of his teammates. I didn’t see much of Walding that night so I can’t add any deep insights on him. Larry Greene was the one position player who stood out as the future major leaguer on the field for that one evening – I’d be stunned if he didn’t develop some semblance of HR power with that body and a swing that looks suited to driving the ball to all fields.

  7. For what its worth, reillocity, Quinn played CF in high school and probably didn’t get much of a chance to work on fielding ground ballsl, so this is all mostly new to him. Nobody’s really expecting much of him at SS in the short term. Besides, even if he never figures it out, he has 80 speed and a good arm that should let him play CF again should the Phillies decide to go that route.

  8. I’m not shocked, Brian, as I was thinking that this guy looks a lot more like a 2B-CF-type than SS-2B-type when I watched him. I didn’t see the “good arm” that you described, even when he did corral the ball, but perhaps it was there and I just missed it.

  9. Anyone wanna take a crack at the Phillies Top Prospects list going into 2013? Here’s my take (based mostly on impact/potential as a MLB player rather than performance thus far) on the Top 15 going into 2013:

    1) Jesse Biddle (LHP)
    2) Larry Greene (LF)
    3) Dylan Cozens (RF)
    4) Trevor May (RHP)
    5) Mitch Walding (3B)
    6) Roman Quinn (SS)
    7) Shane Watson (RHP)
    8) Brody Colvin (RHP)
    9) Cesar Hernandez (2B)
    10) Aaron Altherr (CF/LF)
    11) Lisalverto Bonilla (RHP)
    12) Sebastian Valle (C)
    13) Phillippe Aumont (LHP)
    14) Austin Wright (LHP)
    15) Julio Rodriguez (RHP)

  11. You guys are both missing Adam Morgan. He’s got to be top 10, if not top 5, next year.

    Comment by G$ — July 26, 2012 @ 1:27 pm

  12. I can’t see how you can put Watson up there, yet. I think Franco should be a bit higher. I’d go:

    1) Biddle
    2) Larry Greene
    3) May
    4) Cozens
    5) Cesar Hernadez
    6) Pettibone
    7) Colvin
    8) Bonilla
    9) Walding
    10) Aumont
    11) Franco
    12) Justin Friend
    13) J-Rod
    14) Valle
    15) Tocci

    I know I left out Quinn, Altherr, but I really like Tocci, and Friend witht the 5 pitches.
