The list includes mostly Double and Triple-A veterans. Infielder Harold Garcia was the only player rated as a prospect. [Link]
Here's the complete list as reported today by Baseball America, followed by my comments: RHP: Scott Elarton (AAA), Jesus Morales (R), Drew Naylor (A), Matt Wright (AAA); LHP: Tom Cochran (AAA), Pat Misch (AAA), David Purcey (AAA); C: Jake Fox (AA), John Suomi (AAA); 2B: Harold Garcia (AA), Tug Hulett (AA), Jake Opitz (AAA); SS: Miguel Abreu (AAA); OF: Kyle Hoppy (SS), Kyle Hudson (AAA), D'Arby Myers (AA), Mike Spidale (AAA), Brandon Tripp (AA).
Beerleaguer: Who the hell is Kyle Hoppy? D'Arby Myers and Mike Spidale are the longest-tenured players on this list with roots dating back to 2006. Spidale might return because he always returns. Drew Naylor is likely finished as a prospect after missing the better part of two seasons with arm problems. Veteran hurlers Pat Misch, David Purcey and Scott Elarton, all spring invitees, never factored in with the parent club and had mediocre seasons in Triple-A. Harold Garcia tore his ACL 12 games into the 2011 season and it totally derailed his career. He's a light-hitting glove man, and at 26, the Phils no longer have a spot for him.
And again, who the hell is Kyle Hoppy?
