Baseball America released its list of top 10 Phillies prospects on its web site (baseballamerica.com) Monday and gave a flattering review to the team's farm system.

Domonic Brown topped that list for the second straight year and was followed by Jonathan Singleton, the Lakewood first baseman who is expected to move to the outfield next season, probably at single-A Clearwater.

The remaining names on the BA list with position and their 2010 team: 3. Brody Colvin, P, Lakewood; 4. Jarred Cosart, P, Lakewood; 5. Trevor May, P, Clearwater and Lakewood; 6. Sebastian Valle, C, Lakewood; 7. Jiwan James, OF, Lakewood; 8. Jesse Biddle, P, Gulf Coast League and Williamsport; 9. Domingo Santana, OF, Lakewood and Williamsport; 10. Aaron Altherr, OF, Gulf Coast League and Williamsport.

One scout was quoted by Baseball America as saying the Phillies have more talent at the A-ball level than any team in baseball. A major-league scouting director told BA that it's possible the Phillies will go on "a Braves-like run of division titles." The Phillies' string of N.L. East titles is already at four.

Seven of the 10 players on Baseball America's top prospect list were the same as the top 10 list published by the Inquirer in Sunday's edition.

The three differences in the BA list were James, Santana and Altherr, three outfielders who played at the A-ball level last season. The Inquirer list included pitchers Vance Worley and Justin DeFratus and first baseman Matt Rizzotti.
