Futures Game Preview: Astros Prospect Jonathan Singleton & Phillies Prospect Julio Rodriguez
For the next installment of my Futures Game preview, I will take a look at two prospects I saw as members of the Lakewood Blue Claws, the South Atlantic League affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. The known prospect at the time was first baseman Jonathan Singleton and the unknown prospect was pitcher Julio Rodriguez. While Rodriguez is still a Phillies farmhand, Singleton has moved onto the Astros organization after being part of the package that netted the Phillies Hunter Pence. While both players figure to be big league players, there are still questions that both prospects have left to answer.
