Philly.com’s Minor League Overview

There was an excellent overview that ran this morning from Joe Berkery with new farm director Joe Jordan. Click here to read. There are updates/comments on Sebastian Valle, Jesse Biddle, Larry Greene, Tyson Gilles, Brody Colvin, and more.

Here’s one snippet, on 2011 supplemental first round pick Larry Greene:

The Phils took the powerful 6-1, 230-pound outfielder with the 39th overall pick last June, but he didn’t sign until August. Greene worked out with the Gulf Coast League team late last season and spent time in the Florida Instructional League, but a tender groin limited his time on the field. So he remains a bit of an unknown. As a senior last year at Berrien High School in Nashville, Ga., he hit .562 in 30 games with 19 homers.

“He has the materials to have game-changing power from the left side of the plate,” said Jordan, who scouted Greene with the Orioles. “He has power to all fields. I’ll tell you, real power is hard to find. We think he has it. The challenge now is to make sure he’s healthy, get him in shape, and we’ll see what happens in spring training.”

Meaning the Phils aren’t sure where he’ll start the season. Possibly Class A Lakewood.
