In trading Hunter Pence to the Phillies the Astros received prospects Jarred Cosart, Jonathan Singleton, and Josh Zei, plus a fourth player to be named later.
Today that player was revealed as 19-year-old Single-A outfielder Domingo Santana, who Baseball America ranked as the Phillies’ ninth-best prospect coming into the season.
His stock may have dropped some since then, as Santana has hit just .269 with seven homers and an ugly 120/26 K/BB ratio in 96 games, but the 6-foot-5 right fielder is extremely young for the level of competition and is said to have a ton of power potential.
Santana is a long way from the majors, but he adds to what was already an excellent haul for Pence.
