Phillies' Nick Williams: Receives invite to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nick Williams will join the Philadelphia Phillies in spring training this year, CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury reports.

It was debatable at the time who the best player the Phillies received in their haul for Cole Hamels was, but it seems clear now that Williams has the best chance to go down as the top returning piece in that deal. He has one of the best hit tools in the minors, and while he won't ever walk much, he managed to get his strikeouts under control last season. A toolshed, Williams should be able to go 20/20 with ease in his prime years, and there should be some .290 seasons mixed in if he can maintain the approach he showed in 2015. He has played 134 games at Double-A, so look for him to get assigned to Triple-A to start the year, with a chance for a callup sometime this summer.

Phillies receive P Matt Harrison, five prospects for Hamels
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Phillies have at least received strength in numbers from the Rangers in return for stud left-hander Cole Hamels. They get six players back, including four pitchers.

The lone experienced hurler is left-hander Matt Harrison, who is coming off a back injury that has limited him to three starts this season.

The only non-pitchers are catcher Jorge Alfaro and outfielder Nick Williams, who has compiled a fine .299/.357/.470 slash line this season with 13 homers and 10 stolen bases at Double-A Frisco. He has put together the best season of all the players Philadelphia is getting back. Alfaro is at .253/.314/.432 at Frisco.

The Phillies also get back right-handers Jake Thompson, Alec Asher and Jerad Eickhoff. Thompson is 6-6 with a 4.72 ERA for Frisco with 78 strikeouts in 87 2/3 innings. Asher is 4-10 with a 4.43 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock. Eickhoff is 10-4 with a 4.11 ERA with the same team. He has fanned 107 in 111 2/3 innings.

Thompson is considered a top-50 prospect by Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus. MLB.com ranks him as a top-100 prospect. Williams and Alfaro are also among Baseball Prospectus' top-50 and MLB.com's top-100 lists.
