Surprising no one, Phillies right field super prospect Domonic Brown topped BaseballAmerica’s list of the best players the Philly farm has to offer.

For the second straight year, Brown was named the organization’s best, topping a list of prospects that has seen its share of turnover in recent years. Brown, who hit .327/.391/.589 in the minor leagues in 2010, is the favorite to inherit the starting right fielder’s spot for the big league club out of spring training.

Second on the list was teenaged rising star Jonathan Singleton, who turned heads with a white-hot start to his 2010 season. In fact, spots two through seven on the list are all guys who played on the Lakewood BlueClaws in 2010, further cementing that team’s stacked legacy.

Jesse Biddle, the team’s first-round draft pick this past June, debuted at number eight. None of the prospects from the Cliff Lee trade made the list.

The entire list can be found after the jump, as well as BA’s “Best Tools” picks and 2014 projected lineup.

    Well if we signed Lee and rolled those 4 guys out, they would have to be called the Phantastic Phour…right?

    I must admit, if they do land him, it was masterfully timed. They hang back and acted disinterested for the whole offseason and then…boom! Out of nowhere we find out not only were they the mystery team but they actually DID make an offer.

    I like that Geoff, I don’t believe it’s going to happen, but it would be a great name.
