Maton was added to the Phillies' 40-man roster Friday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports. Maton continued his development at the Phillies' alternate training site in 2020, and he'll now be protected from the Rule 5 draft as part of the 40-man roster. The 23-year-old advanced to Double-A Reading late in 2019, but he struggled a bit, hitting .210 with two home runs and 14 strikeouts over 62 at-bats.
Maton was added to the Phillies' 60-man roster Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports. Maton was a non-roster invitee during spring training but wasn't able to work with the team's player pool during summer camp. He'll report to the team's satellite camp for developmental purposes ahead of the regular season. While the 23-year-old likely won't be in consideration for a major-league roster spot this year, he'll get to work with some of the organization's top prospects.
Maton was invited to the Phillies' major-league spring training Monday. Maton had an effective year with High-A Clearwater in 2019 with a .276/.358/.380 slash line and five home runs, and that performance earned him a promotion to the Double-A level. He experienced some growing pains with Double-A Reading, hitting just .210/.306/.355 with two home runs over 21 games. The 22-year-old will get to work with the big-league coaching staff during the spring, but he'll likely require some more time in the minors before making his major-league debut due to his lack of experience against higher-end competition.
