RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The hype is building around Kilome, a 6-foot-6 righty that the Phillies signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2013. His fastball velocity jumped up into the mid-90s last year and there could be some room for additional growth as his frame fills out. Kilome's numbers at short season Low-A Williamsport last season do not jump off the page, but his prospect status is based more on projection than results at this point in his career. He still has work to do on commanding his fastball and improving his secondary pitches. Kilome will likely be assigned to Low-A Lakewood at the start of the 2016 season, and he could move quickly through the minors if things start to click for him on the mound.
