    Phillies have another third-base prospect emerging

    Zach Green is the latest prospect to emerge at the hot corner for the Phillies. Already equipped with Cody Asche and Maikel Franco, Green is beginning to emerge as another third-base prospect for the Phillies as he's off to a promising start at short-season Class A Williamsport. The 2012 third-round pick is batting .310 with one triple, four home runs, six doubles, 11 runs and 13 RBI in 12 games. The 6-3, 210-pounder infielder has a .786 slugging percentage and 1.186 OPS. "He's a big strong kid and he has some thunder in his bat," director of player development Joe Jordan told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "He can leave the ballpark to a lot of different fields. His offense is ahead of his defense right now."
