Curtis Mead Rises to a Top Phillies Prospect With a Strong Finish in the GCL This Summer and Now a Big Start in the Adelaide Giants Preseason

Phillies infield prospect Curtis Mead just turned 19 years-old on October 26th. He finished strong in the Gulf Coast league back in August hitting four homers over his final nine games and finished up a hot ABL preseason in his native Australia.

Over the weekend in playing for the Adelaide Giants in a three game series against university teams from Japan, Mead hit three homers, including a grand slam, a triple, a double and several base hits.

Mead split his time between third, shortstop and second base last summer in the Gulf Coast League. He has played almost exclusively at second base the last two seasons in the Australian Baseball League.

Other Phillies prospects on the Adelaide team are Australians, catcher Mitch Edwards and first baseman Rixon Wingrove and Americans: catcher Logan O’Hoppe, infielder Cole Stobbe and outfielder Ben Aklinski. All of them made major contributions in the Giants preseason games where Adelaide won three and lost two games against teams from Taiwan and Japan. Read HERE.

The ABL starts with a 40 games regular season schedule next week. The Adelaide Giants open at home against the Brisbane Bandits on November 21.
