The Phillies are reaching the point where many of the prospects they received in trades are making their way up through the minors. Many of these names are already on the 40-man roster and others are likely to appear for the first time during the offseason.
With soooo many trades over the past few years, it's hard to track who came from where and which guys came from which trades, so here's a little cheat sheet.
You might be surprised at how many of these players came through Ruben Amaro trades. As much as I have bashed the guy over the years, much of the roster which we hope will be part of the future core of the Phillies franchise was built with his hands.
Here are the players from eight deals along with their 2016 stats or prospect rankings for players not on the major league roster:
Nick Williams (#3 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com, #48 overall)
Jorge Alfaro (#4 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com, #58 overall)
Mark Appel (#10 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com)
Thomas Eshelman (#18 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com)
Harold Arauz (3.95 ERA in 22 starts at single-A)
Brett Oberholtzer (plays with Angels now)
Tom Windle (4.68 ERA in 43 appearances at single-A and double-A)
Jimmy Cordero (#25 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com)
Alberto Tirado (#28 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com)
Ben Lively (#23 Phillies prospect according to MLB.com)
Nick Pivetta (3.27 ERA in 27 starts at double-A and triple-A)
Victor Arano (2.26 ERA in 46 appearances at single-A and double-A)
Jesmuel Valentin (.269 average at double-A and triple-A)
Here is one trade which did not result in much:
Darnell Sweeney (.233 average at triple-A and just sent to the Dodgers in the Howie Kendrick deal)
John Richy (4.44 ERA in 23 starts at single-A and double-A)comments powered by Disqus
