On Tuesday, rosters for the Class A South Atlantic League All-Star teams, including two Phillies propsects, were announced. Lakewood second baseman Josh Tobias and outfielder Jose Pujols were honored and will represent the Northern Division roster when the game takes place at Whitaker Ballpark in Lexington, KY on June 21st.

Tobias, who was a 10th round draft selection by the Phillies last year out of the University of Florida, has a .2868 average with five home runs and 33 RBI through 52 games for the BlueClaws. The switch-hitter has 14 multi-hit games this season.

The 20-year-old Pujols sports a .243 average with a league-best 10 home runs and 34 RBI through 53 games this season. The righty slugger was recently profiled by Phillies Nation (click here for that feature). In that interview, the Dominican born Pujols was asked about the possibility of being nominated as an All-Star.

"It would be great," Pujols stated. "It would be my first All-Star game, so I just will continue to work and we'll see what happens."

This year’s SAL All-Star Game will mark the 57th annual exhibition.

Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t
