Phillies Send Top Prospect Down To Triple-A

It hasn't exactly been a rousing start to his MLB career, and after losing his starting job for the past six games, top Philadelphia Phillies prospect Bryson Stott will try to get his mojo back in the minors. The Phils have sent Stott to Triple-A Lehigh Valley while calling up outfielder Roman Quinn.

The 24-year-old Stott came into the year as the Phillies' No. 1 prospect, and earned the job as the starting shortstop. However, he was only able to muster 4 hits in 30 at-bats for a .133 average and a .328 OPS, with 10 strikeouts to only one walk. 

In 2021, Stott jumped from High-A to Triple-A, and he averaged .299 with an .876 OPS across 3 levels. In the Arizona Fall League, he followed that up by hitting .318 with a .445 on-base percentage and a .934 OPS.

He'll try to regain that stroke at Triple-A.

Quinn's injury history is long and varied

Quinn has been a long-time prospect with the Phillies, making appearances in 5 of the last 6 seasons, but never playing in more than 50 games. He's had a terrible string of bad luck with injuries, as the 28-year-old has suffered, among other things, issues with his Achilles, his hand, concussion, groin strains, oblique strains, foot fracture, and even food poisoning. 

In 456 total major league at-bats over the years, he does have 39 stolen bases, so he offers some speed, solid defense, and a switch-hitting bat.
