Bryson Stott lands himself on the MLB’s Top Prospect Performers list
Philadelphia Phillies prospect Bryson Stott collected his third straight multi-hit game after going 3-for-5 with two RBIs in Wednesday’s 7-6 win over New Hampshire.
Stott hit his first home run since June 23 and has been on fire after a slow start to July. In his last 36 at-bats, Stott now has 13 hits, five runs scored, one home run, and four RBI. He’s slashing .361/.378/.639 with a 1.017 OPS. He’s listed as the Phillies No. 2 Prospect behind Mick Abel.
Stott’s performance on Wednesday landed him on the MLB’s Top Prospect Performers list.
The 23 year old shortstop played in the MLB Futures Game over the All-Star break. Although Stott didn’t get a hit for the National League team during the game, he still reached base twice and scored a run. He beat out a play at first base after hitting a ball back to the mound. AL pitcher Cole Ragans made an error and Stott reached base safely. In the fourth inning, Stott struck out swinging but reached first again on a wild pitch by Josh Winder.
As the Phillies continue to struggle to get into any type of rhythm after losing their third straight game last night, it’s always great to get positive updates from the minor leagues. As we all know, they’re typically few and far between. Just last week, Mickey Moniak landed himself on the Top Prospect Performers list after going 2-for-2 with a three run home run and a run scoring double in game against Buffalo on Saturday.
Zack Wheeler will be on the mound for the Phillies tonight, as they look to end a three game skid. First pitch is at 7:05. Ring it.
