1. Lakewood shortstop Roman Quinn, The Inquirer's No. 4 Phillies prospect, has played well recently after a difficult start. In the last seven games entering the weekend, Quinn went 11 for 27, raising his average from .196 to .237 and scoring six runs. Among the fastest players in the Phillies system, the 20-year-old Quinn had 18 stolen bases entering the weekend. "I had a talk with him about being a good leadoff hitter, seeing pitches, getting deeper into the count," Lakewood manager Mickey Morandini said.

ALLENTOWN - Bryce Harper is one of the few minor-league players who are major attractions. Despite being in only his second year of professional ball, the Washington Nationals farmhand creates the suspicion that he will be playing at Citizens Bank Park, Citi Field, and other major-league venues before the season is over. The road show for Harper took the 19-year-old this week to Coca-Cola Park, where his triple-A Syracuse Chiefs will conclude a three-game series Friday with the Phillies' affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Nationals' phenom looks ready for the bigs The Washington Nationals' Stephen Strasburg, the first player selected in last year's draft and, by all accounts, a phenom, looks more than ready to make his major-league debut next week. In his final minor-league start Thursday, the Nationals' top pitching prospect allowed no runs, three hits and one walk through five innings for the triple-A Syracuse Chiefs against the Buffalo Bisons. And he closed with a flourish, preserving a 3-0 lead by getting International League batting leader Jesus Feliciano to ground out to second with runners at second and third and two out in the fifth.
