Phillies Prospect Alec Bohm Named a “Fall Star”
The Phillies have several prospects out in the desert playing in the Arizona Fall League.
The rosters include six Phillies prospects: pitchers Spencer Howard, Jojo Romero, and Connor Seabold, outfielder Mickey Moniak, and infielders Nick Maton and Alec Bohm. Of the six, the Phillies will send one to the "Fall Stars" game.
The Arizona Fall League announced the rosters yesterday for the game that will take place on Saturday. Bohm will be the lone player from the Phillies organization. Bohm batted .390 in Arizona Fall League action, with two doubles and six runs batted in. Bohm did not homer, but put forth an OPS of .873.
It seems likely that the Phillies will give Bohm an opportunity to report to Spring Training to compete for a job. While it is unlikely he will make the team out of Spring Training, it is very conceivable that the Phillies could promote Bohm at some point during the season to take over the hot corner. Bohm certainly will play into the decision making in the infield for the Phillies this offseason.
Across three levels in the Phillies organization culminating at Double-A Reading, Bohm batted .305 with 21 home runs and 80 runs batted in. Bohm compiled an OPS of .896 in his 125 games. The 21 home runs tied Deivy Grullon for the organizational lead in 2019.
The Arizona Fall League runs until October 26.
