Continuing from #’s 31-50, here’s #’s 21-30:

  • 21- Scott Kingery-2B-Lakewood- This year’s second round pick started slowly at the plate, but has picked up his performance lately. If he just holds his current performance, I’d expect to see him at Clearwater to start 2016, and he might move fast from there. He’s this year’s Nola, in that he was drafted at an advanced point and might not have to take as long in each level.
  • 22- Brandon Leibrandt-P-Clearwater- He’s been a steady and consistently good starter for the Threshers all season, and really should get a look at Reading this season, though there may not be room for him this season. He’s quiet, but he’s also pretty good.
  • 23- Tom Windle-RP-Reading- When starting doesn’t work out, the bullpen can be a great place to go. Obtained for Jimmy Rollins last Winter, Windle was inconsistent as a starter in Reading, but has been very good in the bullpen. His fastball/slider combination could be lethal at the end of games, as he has a deadly slider.
  • 24- Matt Imhof-P-Clearwater- The 2014 second round pick has had an up and down season, hampered by an early injury that took time away from his development. He’s having a good, if unspectacular 2015 in Clearwater, and a solid finish gives him a shot at Reading next season.
  • 25- Jimmy Cordero-RP-Reading- The “second” piece in the Revere trade, he throws a baseball 100 MPH. If the Phillies can clean up his mechanics and control, he’s a serious power arm in the back of the bullpen.
  • 26- Victor Arano-P-Clearwater- The Phillies picked him up for Roberto Hernandez, and now he’s one of the hottest pitchers on the Clearwater roster. A strong finish could put him in Reading next year, and make that trade an absolute steal.
  • 27- Rhys Hoskins-1B-Clearwater- After an initial “grace period” in Clearwater, Hoskins has picked up hitting like he did in Clearwater. While the power might not be where you want it, the guy can flat out hit, which helps a lot.
  • 28- Gabriel Lino-C-Lehigh Valley- An excellent defender, he has shown an increase in offensive capacity in 2015. If he continues throwing out half of would-be base stealers, the majors won’t be far off.
  • 29- Edubray Ramos-RP-Reading- A late innings option, throwing in the mid to upper 90s can’t go unnoticed. I can see him progressing fast next season towards the majors.
  • 30- Kyle Martin-1B-Lakewood- All he’s done since getting drafted in the 4th round out of South Carolina is hit the ball, hard. He’s not far from a promotion to Clearwater, though he’s got Hoskins to deal with. He’s backing up his 4th round stock well.
