Phillies Prospect Update: May 9 edition
by Scott Butler 5/9/17

Phillies Prospects

Here's your weekly prospect update through May 8.

Not much has changed down on the farm. Crawford and Cozens are still dying in the minors, but at least they haven't gotten worse.

Cornelius Randolph, though. What's going on there?

One area in which a few prospect have improved is the in their selectivity at the plate. Alfaro, Cozens, Williams, and Quinn were all really struggling in that area to begin the season.

Alfaro still has awful splits there, but over the past 7 games, Williams' walk strikeout ratio was 3/7, Quinn's was 3/5, and Cozens' was also 3/5. They may seem like little things, but I imagine Klentak and company see them as important indicators of players who are ready to make the leap to The Show.

Now go ahead and feast your eyes on the numbers:
