One of the big scouting opportunities this weekend was undoubtedly the Auburn/Florida game Friday night in Gainesville. I’m sure the Phillies were well represented at the game.
Aside from the game featuring two top programs and several top prospects, it also provided scouts with a head-to-head look at Casey Mize and Brady Singer.
Florida won the game, 3-1, on a 2-run HR in the first inning. It is amazing how the game stats for the two pitchers are remarkably similar, other than the HR of course.
And now, back to my normal intro to this discussion.
The Phillies have the third overall selection in the first round. They forfeited their second and third round picks when they signed free agents Carlos Santana and Jake Arrieta.
Their total bonus pool is only $8,858, 500. Their total was reduced by over $2.25M of slot money with the two picks they lost.
Their complete slot breakdown is as follows (round, pick, $) –
- 1st: 3 – $6,947,500
- 4th: 107 – $522,900
- 5th: 137 – $390,600
- 6th: 167 – $292,700
- 7th: 197 – $228,000
- 8th: 227 – $180,600
- 9th: 257 – $153,600
- 10th: 287 – $142,600
The pre-season top 10 for prospects was –
- Brady Singer, RHP
- Ethan Hankins, RHP
- Matthew Liberatore, LHP
- Nolan Gorman, 3B
- Shane McClanahan, LHP
- Nander De Sedas, SS
- Brice Turang, SS
- Casey Mize, RHP
- Ryan Rolison, LHP
- Jackson Kowar, RHP
Nothing else new here from me. I can’t offer anything to the conversation that you can’t discuss better. This is just a place to keep all draft discussion undiluted by other conversations.
The comments section in the weekly open discussion had become very large with multiple discussions going on at once. So, here is a discussion thread for draft talk only.
