Another one of those MLB prospect rankings is out there today, and it's another one on which the Phillies have only Jesse Biddle.

It should be noted that Maikel Franco is still raking and Cesar Hernandez was just named International Player of the Week, but hey. This is Baseball America. They're like, the America of Baseball.

The break down looks like this, if all you're worried about is numbers:

  • 5:  Astros
  • 4:  Cardinals, Red Sox
  • 3:  Twins, Diamondbacks, Royals, Pirates, Cub
  • 2:  Mariners, Reds, Mets, Yankees, Padres, Marlins
  • 1:  Indians, Athletics, Rays, Giants, Blue Jays, Rangers, Dodgers, Tigers, Orioles, Phillies
  • 0:  Braves, Nationals, White Sox, Rockies, Angels, Brewers
So good luck out there, Jesse - you are our entire future.
