    Prospect Nation 2016: #15 2B Scott Kingery
    Posted by Jay Floyd, Mon, January 18, 2016 09:05 AM | Comments: 2
    2016 Prospect Countdown, Blueclaws, Minor Leagues, Posts, Prospecting
    S Kingery 2A second round draft choice last year, second baseman Scott Kingery is a talented player that many feel could be a fast moving prospect for the rebuilding Phillies.

    Kingery, who was a walk-on as a freshman at Arizona, was named Pac-12 Player of the Year in 2015, in his junior season. The 21-year-old posted a .392/.423/.561 slash line while driving in 36 runs and stealing 11 bases in 54 games.

    In three seasons with the Wildcats, Kingery batted .351 while driving in 80 runs and stealing 38 bases in 149 games.

    Making his pro debut, the five-foot-10 180-pounder joined the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws in June. In 66 games, he tallied a .250/.314/.337 slash line while swiping 11 bags in 12 opportunities.

    Phillies fans will certainly enjoy Kingery’s game, as he is a very exciting young player with all the right tools to become an offensive catalyst at the highest levels of the sport.

    Very capable with the bat, Kingery projects to be a very good hitting second baseman that has some consistent pop and can spray the ball to all fields. He is a player that can set the table for his team at the top of the lineup, a spark plug that puts together great at bats.

    Speed is a key weapon for him. Very quick-footed, Kingery should be a steady stolen base threat against even the toughest batteries.

    A great defender, Kingery features excellent range and quick hands. He’s an exemplary second baseman with a strong arm that can lay out on batted balls in the hole and can turn double plays with the best of them.

    Coaches in the Phils’ system were impressed with the Arizona native’s preparation, standing out as a player his teammates could look to as a leader.

    Kingery lists Chase Utley and Ian Kinsler among players that he admired and wished to emulate in his younger days.

    It’s likely that Kingery will open this coming season as a member of the Class A Advanced Clearwater Threshers. Estimated time of arrival for the big leagues is probably a couple years off.

    Prospect Nation 2016: #14 1B Rhys Hoskins

    R Hoskins2

    First baseman Rhys Hoskins made significant impressions in his first full season as a pro in 2015. With a powerful bat and a great approach at the plate, the righty hitting slugger could be on a fast pace toward the upper levels of the sport.

    A product of Cal State- Sacramento, Hoskins tallied a .319 average with 25 home runs and 128 RBI in 168 college games prior to turning pro.

    Drafted by the Phillies as a 5th round selection in 2014, Hoskins made his minor league debut as a member of the Class A short-season Williamsport Crosscutters. In 70 games there, the California native posted a .237 average with nine homers and 40 RBI. He was said to have hit better there than his numbers would show, as he hit into a lot of hard outs and lacked luck at the plate.

    He would spend time at the Florida Instructional League following the regular season. It was there that coaches implemented a leg kick as a timing mechanism, to assist with Hoskins’ efforts at the plate. It worked very well and the proof was in the numbers to come.

    After a strong spring, Hoskins would open his 2015 campaign with Class A Lakewood. In 68 games for the BlueClaws, the 22-year-old put together a .322/.397/.525 slash line en route to being named a South Atlantic League All-Star and earned a promotion.

    At the time of the move, Hoskins led or was near the top of the Sally League in many statistical categories including hits, OPS and RBI.

    After moving up to Class A Advanced Clearwater, Hoskins would notch a .317/.394/.510 slash line in 67 games for the Threshers.

    This off-season, Hoskins is playing with Sydney in the Australian Baseball League. Through 44 regular season games, Hoskins sported a .324 batting average with eight home runs, 38 RBI and a .944 OPS.

    Hoskins impressed coaches last year with his outstanding pitch selection. He doesn’t swing at many bad pitches. The youngster sports above average bat speed and can really drive the ball to the opposite field. He is just a flat out impressive hitter. Hoskins touts more power than nearly everyone on this list, with the exception of outfielder Nick Williams, whose entry is still to come on this countdown. Please excuse that spoiler.

    Speed is not a factor on the field for Hoskins. The six-foot-four 225-pounder has been successful in seven of 14 steal attempts in his young career and is a typical power hitting big man in that regard.

    On the defensive side of the game, Hoskins has very good reaction time and solid range to handle batted balls at first base.

    There likely won’t be many other lists ranking Hoskins as highly as I’ve placed him in the Phils system. I do however feel his bat is among the best the team has in their lower levels.

    With the organization having a need for a slugging first baseman in the big leagues, they’ll hope Hoskins can continue to progress at a consistent pace as he moves up the developmental ladder. His ceiling is as an everyday middle of the lineup RBI guy in the majors.

    Hoskins should get some time in the coming season at the Double-A level. It’s unclear if he would open the season there, but another hot spring could lock up that assignment in the early going for him.

    Prospect Nation 2016: #13 RHP Ricardo Pinto
    Posted by Jay Floyd, Wed, January 20, 2016 09:05 AM | Comments: 0
    2016 Prospect Countdown, Blueclaws, Minor Leagues, Posts, Prospecting, Threshers
    Pinto n KnappRight-handed starting pitcher Ricardo Pinto (pictured, center) had a breakout season in the Phillies organization last year. Honored as the top pitcher in their minor league ranks, the 21-year-old is very promising and will look to continue his success this year, as he moves up.

    Boasting a mid-90′s fastball and a plus change up, Pinto has looked great at the lower levels of the minors. Phillies director of player development Joe Jordan states that Pinto’s is the best change up among the organization’s righty prospects. Development of a third offering, his slider, will be the determining factor of the type of progress he’ll see.

    Signed as an international free agent in December, 2011, the Venezuela native debuted in pro ball in the Venezuela Summer League the following year. In 15 games (10 starts) he sported a 7-3 record with one save, a 2.74 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.

    He repeated the VSL in 2013, posting a 3-5 record with a 2.85 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP in 14 games, strictly as a starter.

    In 2014, Pinto moved north, pitching with the Class A short-season Williamsport Crosscutters, where he posted a 1-5 record and a 2.11 ERA with 48 strike outs and 15 walks in 47 innings over nine starts as a 20-year-old.

    Moving up to a full season schedule last year, the six-foot 165-pounder opened the campaign with Class A Lakewood, where he tallied a 6-2 record and a 3.09 ERA while striking out 60 and walking 18 in 67 innings over 11 starts. He earned a promotion in mid-June, moving up to Class A Advanced Clearwater. In 13 games there, Pinto notched a 9-2 record with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP.

    Terrific efforts in 2015 earned Pinto the honor of being winner of the Paul Owens Award, bestowed upon the top performing minor league pitcher and offensive player each year by the Phillies.

    Evaluators often place Pinto’s ceiling as a middle-of-the-rotation starter in the big leagues. If he can improve his slider to above average status, Pinto could live up to those expectations with ease.

    The Phillies like the way Pinto, who turns 22-years-old on the day this piece is scheduled to publish, competes, describing his approach as business-like. He attacks the opposition and appears daring, maintaining outstanding composure with a top-notch work ethic.

    Physically, he may not project to add much to his frame, but that shouldn’t prevent him from refining his standout offerings to climb the ladder.

    Expect Pinto to hold down a key spot in the rotation for Double-A Reading this year. If things go well for the youngster, look for him to be in the discussion for a promotion (up one or two levels) by mid-summer.

    Prospect Nation 2016: #12 OF Tyler Goeddel
    Posted by Jay Floyd, Thu, January 21, 2016 09:05 AM | Comments: 0
    2016 Prospect Countdown, Minor Leagues, News, Posts, Prospecting

    Selected by the Phillies in December’s MLB Rule 5 draft, outfielder Tyler Goeddel will get every chance to catch on with the big league club as they open a new season in 2016.

    Goeddel was taken 41st overall out of high school in the 2011 draft by Tampa Bay. Touted as a five-tool player at the time, he has worked hard to prove those reviews as accurate.

    Upon making his professional debut in 2012 as a 19-year-old for Class A Bowling Green, Goeddel posted a .246 batting average with six homers, 46 RBI and 30 stolen bases. Repeating that level the following season, he tallied a .249 average with seven home runs, 65 RBI and 30 steals in 112 games.

    The following year, Goeddel posted a .269 average with six homers, 61 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 113 games for Class A Advanced Charlotte in the Florida State League.

    In 2015 Goeddel posted a strong offensive campaign, sporting a .279 average with 12 home runs, 72 RBI and 28 steals in 123 games with Double-A Montgomery in the Southern League.

    Speed is certainly a factor of the youngster’s game, as he has swiped bags at a terrific 79.4% success rate thus far in his pro career.

    Defensively, Goeddel played third base until he was converted exclusively to an outfielder following the 2014 season. With quick feet, he displays very good range, mainly as a left fielder. He also sports a strong arm to keep runners honest.

    With a solid frame, the six-foot-four 186-pounder already features plenty of pop, slamming 25 hits for extra-bases in 63 second half games last year for the Biscuits. His power potential, which is something the Phils are high on, can certainly continue to develop. Looking thin, he’ll need to pack on some muscle if he is to fully blossom.

    A righty batter, Goeddel hit considerably better against lefty hurlers (1.112 OPS) than he did against righties (.699 OPS) last season, but that variance doesn’t hold firm historically. In his previous two seasons, Goeddel’s OPS was higher against right-handed opposition.

    As per rules of the Rule 5 draft, requirements state that the selecting team keeps any drafted player on its 25-man big league roster for the entire following season, or offer him back to the team he was drafted from. The Phillies, having taken Goeddel with the first overall pick in that draft, will give the player every chance to stick in Philly. His proximity to the majors helps the 23-year-old place in the upper half of this list.

    The Rays decided they did not have room to protect him on their 40-man roster, implying he was the 41st man and just missed the cut.

    Goeddel’s brother Erik is a reliever with the Mets and their father, David, was a biotech industry pioneer who developed synthetic insulin.

    With a nearly locked-in opportunity to play in the majors in 2016, the California native will need to prove that he is ready for the challenge in order to stick there long-term. If Goeddel can continue to at least hit against lefty pitching, the worst case scenario, hopefully, is he sees some platoon time with the likes of the lefty batting Code Asche in left field at Citizens Bank Park next season. With progress down the line, the Phillies hope they have a 20-20 guy on their hands
