NEW YORK — The score is 3-0 on Baseball America's midseason Top 50 prospects list; three former Phillies farmhands to zero current ones.

Three players who were named to this Sunday's Futures Game in Kansas City appear. They are catcher Travis D'Arnaud (19th), first baseman Jonathan Singleton (23d) and outfielder Anthony Gose (38th). D'Arnaud and Gose are with Toronto and Singleton is property of Houston.

Two third basemen on teams that could be interested in Cole Hamels appear high on the list. Texas' Mike Olt is 11th on the list and Detroit's Nick Castellanos is 12th. If the Phillies are to trade Hamels, they could look for a young third base prospect in return.
