A Detailed Outlook of 2024 Phillies' Offseason – Philly Sports

When these two young players start the 2024 minor league season, the Philadelphia Phillies will be keeping an eye on them.

Baseball fans throughout the nation will get the opportunity to witness some of the top prospects in the game prior to their arrival in the Major Leagues during MLB’s Spring Breakout games in March.

Like every other team, the Philadelphia Phillies will have a team, and it will be composed of some of the best prospects in their system.

Does that imply, though, that any of those players will become major league stars in 2024?

The topic posed to Phillies insider Matt Gelb of The Athletic earlier this week is an intriguing one. Although the question wasn’t specifically about the Spring Breakout, it might have been, given who the Phillies choose to play.

Gelb claims that the Phillies are optimistic about two prospects.

One is shortstop Bryan Rincon, who played for High Class-A Jersey Shore at the end of the 2023 season. Given that MLB.com ranks Rincon as the Phillies’ No. 28 prospect, it is probable that he will play in the game.

In his first full minor league season, Rincon played with Class-A Clearwater and Jersey Shore last year, when he slashed.234/.368/.361/.729 with eight home runs and 52 RBI.

He was picked by the Phillies in the fourteenth round of the 2022 draft out of Pittsburgh’s Shaler Area High School. MLB.com sees him as a 2026 call-up even though he is not yet 20. His ability to switch-hit is one feature of his game that draws people in.

The other potential may be at Spring Training in March, but he is now overseas. The No. 23 prospect for the Phillies is Eduardo Tait, a catcher who isn’t even 18 years old.

With both of the Phillies’ Dominican Summer League teams, the Panamanian international signee participated in his first professional season in 2023 and slashed.333/.400/.517/.917 with three home runs and 36 RBI in 44 games. Tait’s next move could be to play for the Florida Complex League affiliate of the Phillies or, if the organization is feeling very ambitious, Clearwater.

The Phillies will have additional alternatives in their infield over the next few seasons if these two prospects develop as they are expected to.
