There’s great hope in the Phillies from office for top prospects Spencer Howard and Alec Bohn.
Howard, the organization’s top pitching prospect, is in big-league camp. But because of his light workload, the 23-year old will likely start the season in Class AAA. In 71 innings in the minors, he averaged nearly 12 strikeouts per nine across three levels.
Bohm, 23, (above) was the third overall pick in the 2018 draft. He is considered the Phillies’ top prospect and future franchise third baseman. In 2019, the third baseman hit .305 with 21 homers, 80 RBI and a .896 OPS across three levels.
