Here’s the final thread to continue talking about the 2016 First Year Player Draft.
The Phillies conclude their portion of the 2016 First Year Player Draft with picks 11 thru 40. Those selections, as well as the first ten, are being tracked in our 2016 Draft Tracker. As signings are announced, the tracker will be updated. Be sure to share any information and I will incorporate it into the tracker.
