The 22-year-old was the Phillies' 7th round draft selection in 2017. The lefty batting Maton opened the year with Class A Advanced Clearwater. In 93 games for the Threshers, he notched a .276 batting average with 14 doubles, three triples, five home runs and 45 RBI.
Promoted to Double-A Reading in early August, Maton would post a .210 average with three doubles, a pair of round-trippers and six RBI in 21 games for the Fightin Phils.
Primarily a shortstop, Maton also saw action at second base and third base this year.
