Top 10 Prospects For Philadelphia Phillies Heading Into 2013
Looking at the Top 10 Prospects For Philadelphia Phillies in 2013
After dealing with numerous key injuries to some of their star players, the 2012 season didn’t go as expected for the Philadelphia Phillies as they failed to win the NL East title for the first time since the 2006 season. Instead, the Washington Nationals took the division title, but give the Phillies credit for still managing to finish in third place with an 81-81 record.
Despite their struggles, there were times when the Phillies seemed like they were capable of making a run at the playoffs, but inconsistency would come into play and ruin the chances of that happening. With a healthier lineup, there’s no reason why Philadelphia can’t bounce back in 2013 and be strong contenders in the NL East once again.
However, it certainly won’t be easy as the Nationals and Atlanta Braves will be strong contenders once again. This offseason has been filled with plenty of big moves and even towards the end of last year the team made a few surprises when they sent Shane Victorino to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Hunter Pence to the San Francisco Giants.
There’s no question this year could turn out to be an interesting one for Philadelphia and based off all of the uncertainty surrounding some of their star players—it wouldn’t be a surprise if some of their potential stars received a chance at seeing some playing time in the big leagues.
Here’s a look at the 2013 Philadelphia Phillies top 10 prospects with the season right around the corner.
