Here’s the thread to continue talking about the 2015 First Year Player Draft.
The Phillies selected HS SS Cornelius Randolph with the 10th overall pick. Randolph is out of Griffin HS in GA. He bats left/ throws right and is 5’11, 205 lbs, born on 06/02/97. He has been described as one of the best pure hitters in the draft by Keith Law. Scouting director Johnny Almaraz has indicated that Randolph will move to LF.
With the 48th pick they selected 2B Scott Kingery. He is a college JR out of Arizona. He bats right/throws right, and is 5’10, 180 lbs, born on 04/29/94. BA has some scouts comping him with Kinsler but with less power. He’ll have a leg up on our current “second baseman of the future” since he isn’t on the restricted list.
The draft continues Tuesday and includes Rounds 3-10. Coverage will start at 1:00 pm ET, live on MLB.com.
The draft will conclude on Wednesday with Rounds 11-40. Coverage will start at 12:00 pm ET, live on MLB.com.
