A Complete, Way Too In Depth Recap Of The Philadelphia Phillies Draft

1

You can this find information anywhere, but I took everything I read and organized it. Included are a scouting report, college stats as well as a video for most of the top 10 picks. The Phillies didn’t select the best players, instead they used the market to go after value so they can load up on the back end. Some writers like Michael Bauman of The Ringer, think the Phillies tried to manipulate the draft too much, and it didn’t work out for them as well as they had hoped. I kind of agree with him. However, factoring signability, Jim Callis of MLB Pipeline rates the Phillies with the best overall haul.

The Breakdown:
High Schoolers – 12
College – 28
Position Players – 17
Pitchers – 23

1/1 – Micky Moniak OF HS
6’2 190lbs L/R
5/13/1998

Scouting Report Per Fueled By Sports
Moniak is a solid hitter with a very sound approach and gold glove caliber defense. He makes solid contact from the left side of the plate, hitting the ball to all fields. He has all the makings of a future leadoff batter, with his approach, contact ability and speed. Moniak’s defense is what sets him apart from the rest of the high school outfielders though.

MLB Comparison – Christian Yelich

2/42 – Kevin Gowdy RHP HS
6′ 4 175lbs R/R
11/16/1997

Scouting Report per Last Word On Sports
Front line starter in the making. His slider is his punchout pitch and it is already well developed (as is his control), but he needs to add more velocity to his fastball and develop his change-up. The good news is he has the frame and delivery to allow for both.

MLB Comparison – Chris Archer

3/78 – Cole Stobbe SS HS
6′ 1″ 200lbs R/R
08/30/1997

Scouting Report Per Jim Callis, MLB.com
One of the best high school hitters in the draft, with average or better tools across the board. With his quick, compact right-handed stroke, Stobbe laces line drives to all fields. He added some strength before his senior season and drove the ball more consistently this spring, finishing among the national high school leaders with 14 home runs. He could be a .280 hitter with 15-18 homers per year in the big leagues

MLB Comparison – Trevor Story

4/107 – Jojo Romero LHP Yavapi College
6’0 180lbs L/L
09/09/1996

Scouting Report Per Daniel Kramer, MLB.com
His two-seam fastball has a sharp sink and his four-seamer has hit the low-90s. He also brought a curve with, but he’s added a changeup and slider to his repertoire that in just a short span have become his best pitches. His changeup is pro-ready. It’s a plus-pitch.

5/137 – Cole Irvin LHP University of Oregon
6′ 4″ 190 L/L
01/31/1994

Scouting Report per Register Guard
Irvin’s ceiling is limited to that of a back-end starter, but he is really polished and if he is the guy he was late in the spring, he’s a high probability big leaguer. Missed his sophomore season after Tommy John surgery. Fastball sits in low
90s.
111
6/167 – David Martinelli CF Dallas Baptist University
6’1 200lbs L/R
12/30/1994

Scouting Report per Matt Breen, Philly.com
He’s an athletic defender with a strong arm. Could be better suited to play right field.

1111

7/197 – Henri Lartigue C Ole Miss
6′ 0″ 205lbs S/R
02/24/1995

Scouting Report Per the Clarion Ledger
Lartigue needs to improve his defense and stay at catcher, saying his lack of power and speed would make it difficult for Lartigue to play another position such as first base. However, last season was Lartigue’s only one playing full-time at catcher, meaning there’s room for improvement that would allow him to become average.

11111

8/227 – Grant Dyer RHP UCLA
6′ 1″ 195lbs R/R
07/31/1995

Scouting Report per Baseball Prospectus
There’s some uphill in his delivery, with a pronounced stab at the back of his arm swing that causes some timing issues getting to slot consistently. The motion gives him late life when he runs the ball to the top of the zone, but it leaves him susceptible to missing in dangerous places. Fastball sits in the low 90s and curveball is inconsistent.
