Team to watch

New faces

When the 2020-21 international signing period opened, after a pandemic-induced delay, on January 15, Rickardo Perez was ranked ninth on MLB Pipeline’s Top 30 international prospect list. The Phillies signed the left-handed hitting catcher for $1 million because of his ability to barrel up the baseball at the plate and his long-term defensive potential behind it.

On the shelf

The Phillies have a few prospects getting into playing shape, from Erik Miller on the mound to Kendall Simmons at the plate. But the one who’s shelved the furthest away isn’t even because of injury. Simon Muzziotti has been unable to get out of his native Venezuela to join the organization stateside. He’ll have some catching up to do before he’ll be ready to join a club.
