Rain is toying with the start of this afternoon’s game. So, how about we try this?
The 2018 Amateur Draft begins on Monday, June 4th. The Phillies have the third overall selection. If you were the guy in the organization making the call, who do you pick? Put the name of the guy you would pick in the comments section. I’ll have them collected, consolidated, and reported back at a future date.
- Assume that Detroit takes Auburn’s Casey Mize off the board at 1:1.
- Include the name of your second choice if your first choice is selected by San Francisco.
- Who would you pick or who do you think the Phillies should pick? Not who do you think the Phillies will pick.
- This really isn’t a discussion thread. No need to rip someone else for their selection. No need to justify your selection. No need to campaign for your guy. There are no wrong answers. Just an opportunity to get everyone’s 1:3 pick in one thread.
- Oh, and if Mize were to somehow fall to 1:3, would you take him? Or are you really hot for someone else?

Pick: Alec Bohm, 3B
Backup Pick: Nick Madrigal, 2B
Madrigal probably has a higher floor, but Bohm has greater potential to be a middle-order impact bat IMO. The defensive questions are valid, but I trust if the Phils are serious about taking him here, they believe he can stick at 3B.
If Mize is available, I take him.
Pick: Bohm, regardless if he sticks at 3b or not. His bat doesn’t have to play 3b.
BIG YES to Mize if he drops to 1:3.
Madrigal then Bohm. Mize if he’s available.
I like big pitchers. If available, I’ll take Singer. If he’s gone, I’ll take Bohm.
Yes to Mize.
I still like Nolan Gorman and he’ll definitely be available
Bohm if he’s there. Madrigal if he’s not.
Bohm, definitely, the Phillies need a young power bat. All the others in the system are highly problematical. They have to keep trying.
I watched some game video on these guys. Mize is the one I want. if he isn’t there. I am lost.on who to take
Can someone tell me why Bohm over India? They seem to be pretty much the same players expect India is expected to stick at 3B and is more athletic while Bohm is likely a 1B long run. I don’t know a ton about either but just seems like India would be the safe pick.
I take Madrigal, and yes on Mize. Madrigal’s higher floor does it for me.
Would go Bart then India (since he will stay at 3b) and yes, Mize would be pick is available..
I’d like to get Mize but if he falls I would need to know why, was there an issue with his medicals then I would pass but if not go for it.
Bart if he available (he won’t be).
Like Wawa Mike, I would go with 6’5 Singer.
If Mize falls to 3, I would take him.
Madrigal, then Bohm, if former is gone. Definitely take Mize if available.
Back-up Pick: Bohm
Mize for sure. But I’m favoring Singer though everything you read suggests there is so much pitching depth in the draft we should select Bohm.
They’ll probably pick 7 or 8 college guys in their top ten and try to sign a Hs prep guy with 11.
Boehm 1st, If taken Leibetore, If Mize available I take him
Detroit selects Mize….then Madrigal or Bohm.
But prefer Mize if he falls to three
Matt liberators first potential is too great if gone mize or singer pitching!!!
Bohm, if Mize Falls hes falling for a reason.
Bohm, then Bart, and yes on Mize if he’s available at #3.
Pick is Singer.
Back up is either Madrigal or Liberatore.
Yes to Mize if he’s available.
Mize if available. If not Liberatore.
I just want them not to whiff with another top pick. Still hopeful of the other recent picks, but I need this top pick to be a top player whether it’s a hitter or pitcher
Liberators is a stud lefty will be great Hamels/carlton
Great post idea Jim.
I am coming around on Bohm’s bat, due to the very positive scouting reports. But the concerns about him moving to first base scares me. I wouldn’t be upset with Bohm as the pick here. But I see a future first base with a .270/.320/.450 line.
As I have said many times before, I am not a scout and don’t pretend to be a scout. I am a sucker for performance. I constantly harp on k rate and walk rate as I believe those are the greatest predictors.
Of all of the stats that I have studied, I have never seen anything close to a 3.7% k rate on a hitter. It is otherworldly. Even more unbelievable, Madrigal has a k rate of 6.2% and 5.7% in his prior two seasons. That isn’t good, that is 80 grade contact ability. That is way, way off the charts. Add in that he is a great athlete that can play short, second or any OF position. I can’t see how Madrigal is not a MLB all-star. He has a great combination of high floor and elite ceiling IMO.
As for Singer, I think the kid has “It”. He has that special gift of an athlete. Absolutely dominant performance in the SEC for two years and in the Cape Cod League. Peripherals are awesome. Reports on stuff is good, but not elite. I trust Keith Law a lot and he doesn’t like Singer. That gives me pause. So I go Madrigal first. Then Singer. Then Bohm.
Yeah that SO% stat for Madrigal is ridiculous. He’s struck out FIVE TIMES all year. I can’t wrap my head around that.
Yes butt….. That 5 bb is at 119 at bats Madrigal was hurt the beginning of the year.Madrigal also carried a .398 babip too which will change in pro ball.
All seriousness aside, I humbly suggest you expand your studies to include the career of Willians Astudillo. In 9 professional seasons plus 4 in overseas winter leagues, Astudillo has a 2.98 K%. That’s against professional pitchers at all levels and he has a career batting average of .305. (with a wooden bat)
This season, Astudillo is at it again. 2.54 K% and .291 batting average in the AAA International League. At the time of this post, he has more walks (4) than Ks (3) in 118 PA. (In his career, he has 96 BB, 81 K in 2716 PA. SMH)
Hey…You are right Jim. That is a great point. Willians is an unbelievable outlier on SO rate. The problem with him is that he is slow and also has no power and not a great defender. He also doesn’t take walks. So imagine if Willians hit tool was accompanied with 65 run tool and elite defense up the middle and he had a better walk rate. That would be a heck of a prospect.
I’d go with college pitching and pick Singer. If Mize is available, I would absolutely pick Mize.
If neither Mize nor Singer are available having gone 1/2, I’d probably still focus on a college pitcher as an underslot signing and allocate the savings to overslot in the 4th and 5th rounds. McClanahan or Kowar are likely mid to lower 1st rounders that could result in savings to be used to grab some high end HS pitching in the 4th and 5th.
I think Bohm, Madrigal and Bart type hitters/players can be picked up through trade/free agency with less risk. It’s in line with the “grow the pitching, acquire the bats” mentality. And the Phillies have had more success drafting/developing pitching recently than drafting/developing hitters.
1. Mize … Hell, yes !
2. Madrigal … exceptional hand-eye coordination, quick wrists, attacks pitches. Tremendous baseball IQ.
3. Bohm … IMO, he’s more athletic than generally given credit for. Comes with the highest ceiling.
Why do you say Bohm has higher ceiling than Madrigal?
For me …
Madrigal ceiling – Ozzie Albies
Bohm ceiling – Kris Bryant
Bryant is the better outcome. However, Madrigal is probably at least twice as likely to reach his (Albies) ceiling.
How do you conclude that Bohm’s ceiling is Kris Bryant? I have not seen that anywhere and the stats are no where close to each other. Bryant’s college stats blow away Bohm’s. Not in the same ballpark.
I also don’t get the Albies comp for Madrigal. I think his ceiling is Altuve with a little less power.
Though you can say Altuve actually only discovered his HR power in the last three years. Prior to that, in almost 900 professional games (minors and majors) he only hit 51 HRs.
Saw this from a Houston Astro site in 2011…ranking their top twenty prospects
13) Jose Altuve, 2B, Grade C: You have to love the numbers, but can a 5-5 player really succeed at higher levels? We’ll find out this year.
14) Dallas Keuchel, LHP, Grade C: Throws strikes, gets ground balls, could surprise as fifth starter type.
v1 … You asked me for my opinion. Not sure why my opinion needs to be backed up by the opinions of others … but … if that’s what you need, I found this from Kiley McDaniels scouting notebook (April 6):
“Bohm was seen by most scouts before the season as a first-rounder but also the second-best prospect on his own team behind Greyson Jenista (below). This spring, Bohm has clearly overtaken his teammate and had some scouts whispering that he did some things like Kris Bryant the night I saw him against ECU. To be clear, Bohm isn’t seen as that level of a prospect just yet, but he isn’t as far away as you may think.”
Yes. Bryant had better college stats, but Bohm played in a better conference. The two have similar body types. Like I mentioned above, I’m not saying Bohm is a slam dunk Kris Bryant clone. I’m simply saying Bryant is Bohm’s ceiling.
Also … I really like Madrigal, but Jose Altuve is a freak of nature. They share the big leg kick, but Madrigal IMO will never get to the kind of power that Altuve somehow shows. Albies and Madrigal are both guys who can play either SS or 2B, have excellent hit tools, and are terrors on the base paths.
Hinkie I know you really follow this draft. I Am confused on Bohm versus Bryant. Bryant can field hit for average power, run, Bohm only really has one tool he can hit for power. I Don’t see him as a 300 hitter in the big leagues, not with a wooden bat.
… again … to be clear … I would draft Madrigal over Bohm. Madrigal is the safer/safest pick in the draft. I believe Madrigal can handle SS/2B/CF. He has off the charts hand-eye coordination, a tiny strike zone (obviously), and very rarely swings at bad pitches. When he does offer at a pitch, he attacks the ball with a big leg kick and quick wrists/swing. I think he’ll be good for 8 to 10 HR’s per year, and he’ll toss in another 35 doubles and triples per season.
Like I posted earlier, IMO Bohm’s ceiling is Bryant. Madrigal’s ceiling is Albies. Like I also posted earlier, Madrigal is at least twice as likely to hit his ceiling.
rocco … when Bryant was coming out of college, there were plenty of baseball people who believed he would eventually need to move to a corner OF. Same thing is being said about Bohm (will end up at 1B/LF). I believe Bohm is a bit more athletic than most other people. For me, Bohm runs as well as Kris Bryant. Also, (maybe you missed it) Bohm has been very good with the wood. He slashed .351/.399/.513 last summer on the Cape with a wood bat.
Bohm vs Madrigal
Ceiling = Bohm
Floor = Madrigal
Time to majors = Madrigal
Like to meet ceiling = Madrigal
Bohm’s ceiling is hitting for power (30+ HR) and average (.275+) with decent arm/defense at 1B/3B. Madrigal can hit for better average and can higher OBP, but most of the power stats will be on Bohm.
Defensively, both Bohm and Madrigal can be at least average but they are not the defensive whiz.
I might be in the position that whoever the Phils pick at 1.3 (unless it’s Mize), it might be part of a significant trade that the Phils will do in the near future.
“, both Bohm and Madrigal can be at least average but they are not the defensive whiz.’
I can can only give you the MLB ratings:
Arm: 50 Field: 55……:he has the chance to be a Gold Glove caliber second baseman in the future. ”
Arm: 50 Field: 45 ….”:Bohm doesn’t offer much when he’s outside of the batter’s box, however. Though he has worked diligently to improve at third base, he lacks quickness and range, his hands are just fair and his arm is only average. He’ll probably wind up at first base but has the offensive upside to profile there.”
Madrigal would appear to have the better defensive ceiling than Bohm.
Where does Madrigal play?
Kingery goes to third madrigal to second is a pssoibilty.
Or one eventually goes to CF….with Doobie, Mickey Mo and A Haseley!
@romus – i don’t see both Bohm and Madrigal settling into a premium defensive position, thus, I don’t see them as defensive whiz. Bohm is a corner INF and potentially 1B long term and Madrigal is 2B long term – 2 of the 3 least demanding defensive position.
Madrigal could probably play third….the glove, range and quickness are definitely there according to all the reports I have seen on his defensive raw tools..
The arm however, is probably just adequately passable.
Whereas Bohm in some circles does have flaws with the glove or range.
However, Bohm gives you the ISO from third…Madrigal does not.
The Phillies aren’t going to draft Bohm at 1-3 unless they believe he’s going to be a 3Bman. They aren’t going to draft Madrigal unless they believe he can play SS at the MLB level.
****JIM, COULD YOU REPOST THE DRAFT DISCUSSION THREAD? IT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN BUMPED OFF THE MAIN PAGE. THANKS.
8mark……go into ‘The Archives’ on the right above the May calendar.
Click ‘May 2018″…then scroll down until you see it.
click ‘select month’ first…sorry about that…jump the gun a little
8mark, … or click on the Phuture Phillies banner at the top. This will bring you to the list of articles. Scroll down to the article you want. This can run a little long if an article doesn’t include a “Continuing Reading” insert.
1. the guy who I’m overrating because I’m completely relying on other sources and guesswork to rank these guys. he will amount to nothing.
2. the guy who ends up being the best player in the group of reasonable picks here.
3. the guy who all the experts completely whiff on but ends up being the best selection.
4. The guy that next June everyone will claim that that wanted and the Phillies management is horrible for not taking him??
Matt liberatore please!!! Lefty star in future why bohm if he can’t play third madrigal if position player pitching wins stock up while have opportunity!!!
Assuming Mize is gone, and if I had my druthers:
1. Gilbert (with some good coaching, and added velocity, he could be a stud)
2. Madrigal (I like Bohm’s power potential, but madrigal seems like the more complete player)
3. Carter Stewart (http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/news/mlb-draft-2018-carter-stewart-scouting-report-top-prospects-projection-accolades-awards/uvmkvv6yuo3s1vja3i2mzxs1u; only reason Gilbert is 1 is because presumably he’d get to the majors faster)
“with some good coaching” – that’s a big X factor. While the major league pitching staff seems to have benefitted from Kranitz and his people, I can’t say they’re as strong in developing arms throughout the system. The talent is certainly there but whether it is nurtured is another BIG question.
He’s been trending up lately after recovering from a slow start to the season. Sits low- to mid-90s (was touching 97 last summer). Changeup might be his best pitch; slider/curve is also projectable. I know the Phillies have struggled to develop pitching (although Nola proved that polished college pitching can overcome!), but really all this guy needs is some added lower body strength to sustain his velo as his mechanics are already smooth and repeatable. Once that happens, his absurd extension will cause all types of timing issues for hitters. If the Phillies coaches can just get him to work on refining that slider so that it’s more distinguishable from his curve, and get him on a fitness plan to fill out his frame to regain his velo, then I’d say he’d have a very safe bet of contributing to the rotation fairly sooner. I think he could be a solid no. 2.
So, like, a slightly less electric Vinny Velasquez but with much better command, thereby making him a reliable option.
i normally prefer pitching, but something about Singer scares me, and the high school arms seem too risky for #3 pick and assuming Mize gone. hopefully all the college bats will end up blocked by guys the Phils already have being successful- so i’m looking in part at who might have the most value around the league if the Phils are trading for another piece in offseason or next year..so i’ll go.
This is good the Phillies mock or rumors
Eric L Bohm
Lefty 6ft 5 with style and huge upside can’t pass him up considering confusion with all other possible choices. Matt liberatore !!! He will be future of Phillies staff
How does Madrigal compare with Kingery when he was at Arizona.
Liberatore has such a high ceiling only negative is he is he player everyone else they are considering have bigger negatives lefty stud has such a high ceiling his high school background is worth his little risk compared to other choices 6 foot 5 lefty with great skill and smart is too good to pass on he will be a star!!!
He should be high school
Liberatore high school exp is not a big enough negative to pass on his upside
That’s a good question
Kingery stat line his jr yr. .392/ .423/.461 3.47 bb % 6.95 k %. 237 at bats.
Madrigal stat line .395/.459/.563 8.87 bb% 3.70 k % 119 at bats
Tim go to bed its 3am.
Great point Tim. Amazing how exceptional Kingery’s stat line was, and yet Madrigal was significantly better on almost every way.
V1again, I’ve enjoyed reading your comments, I’m much more of a hockey fan and I have some experience scouting but clearly very different sport. So when you see the stats on Kingery/Madrigal, how do you look consider what may have happened if Madrigal had double the AB’s which would put him at what Kingery’s was. Do you look at his numbers and use a pro rated number or just go off the numbers at face value?
I guess what I’m wondering is if Madrigal had double the AB’s, how would his numbers look. I’m not a big stats guys, I just watch games on Milb.tv, and I know that hitting ave isn’t the best stat but I saw that Madrigal was hitting around .435 and that dropped to .395 which made me think what would of happened had he had double the AB’s when looking at Kingery’s numbers since he appears to be a decent comp for Madrigal.
The reason why I’m interested, in watching Kingery in Reading/LV, I had him pegged as our top prospect going into this season. That doesn’t mean much as I’ll forget more about hockey then I’ll ever know about baseball but just that he was so impressive and in watching some clips of Madrigal, he made me think of Kingery and that made me wonder why he’s not hyped more. I guess the thought of having 2 Kingery’s, despite his struggles in the majors, sounds very good to me.
Thanks for your compliment Daniel.
Your comment about small sample size is a fair point. It is definitely something to watch. But for Madrigal, his Sophomore stats are extremely close to his Junior stats. So actually, you can look at his stats over 417 plate appearances, which is a very good sample size.
he is just a kid who has truly elite hand eye coordination, and reports of 60/70 speed and great defense.
having him and kingery on the same team (or same infield) is extremely attractive as you point out.
Thanks for the link, comparing their Sophomore stats shows that Madrigal had a better year. If somehow the phils picked Madrigal, would you put him in Lakewood or be more aggressive and put him in Clearwater?
Clearwater. And maybe a cup of coffee in Reading to end the season. I think he is very advanced. I think Madrigal has a chance to come to Spring training next year and compete for a job. I don’t know where they put him. 2nd base is crowded as is short. But maybe a corner OF. But anyway, i believe that he is the second best prospect in the draft and you draft for talent, not need.
Madrigal arm only fits in LF he’s not moving Herrera.
Tim…..besides LF, CFer do not all have 60 arms.
And what about third base?
Now at Oregon State, I had heard Madrigal could have handle shortstop, but deferred to Cadyn Grenier….who actually is only a little bigger in height and wright than Madrigal, but evidently did have a stronger throwing arm/
Madrigal is rated as a Gold Glove second baseman….leave him there and move Kingery to third or the OF or even shortstop.
In a fantasy world….if either could be catcher, that would be the best scenario.
Wait Kingery is also a plus plus defender at 2nd with alot more pop . Madrigal had to hit with power he play 3rd . Again noway CF unless Herrera gets hurt. I think Eric L unless Mize falls it’s Bohm go for the hit tool with power. Btw Bohm has proven himself with a wooden bat.
Can Madrigal handle 500 at bats in a season without wearing down .
1A does his double power stay with wooden bats.
2 . Santana, Cehe , Kingery , Machado, Franco where’s the room.
3. Just watched 20 mins of Madrigal hitting tape.
4. He’s filled out already really no room for added wieght or muscle .
5. His swing is very ground ball line drive type. Almost no lift to his swing .
6. Might have trouble against better outfield defense . Better arms and positioning.
I think it is silly to argue that a 21 year old has no ability to add muscle. Of course he can get stronger. As for where he fits, that doesn’t matter. You take the best player. Franco is a below replacement level player. He should not be on this team. And they can always make trades.
Yes butt at 119 at bats some sample this yr. Plus how will Madrigals hit tool & power tool translate to wooden bats .
1. Madrigal power is border line with Aluminum bats for a 3 Rd baseman .
Here’s the thing Kingery career took off after he added muscle .
Madrigal at 5 ‘7 165 PDS could very well have even less power with wooden bats.
Plus Madrigal is Max out already physically . He might wear down in pro ball at 500 or so at bats .
Madrigal is not a big power guy; everyone knows this. But he is still regarded to have the best hit tool in the draft and the highest floor of any hitter.
Also, one doesn’t have to be a physically big guy to avoid getting worn down. Many, many examples of this in MLB.
Not many mlb players at 5 ‘ 7 165 .
Tim…correct…but the best second basemen in the league is Altuve at 5’5″.
The point is, being small doesn’t mean one is more prone to wear down over the course of a 162 game season. I get you don’t like Madrigal, which is your prerogative, but the “he might wear down due to his size” narrative is a real reach IMO. I just don’t think there is any basis to this.
And I’m not bothered by the lack of power and the ground ball/line drive type of swing. A guy with a great hit tool who makes a lot of line drive contact sounds good to me.
Finally, the point about trouble with MLB outfield defense is another reach IMO. You could make the same argument about most anyone in the draft. If someone hits a lot of line drives at the MLB level, the outfield defense won’t matter all that much.
I like Madrigal just not at 1: 3 the Phillies most likely done picking at the top of The draft . Picking another Cehe that will be traded most likely . Give. Me Mize or A power bat . Btw fangraphs has Bohm in game hit tool better then Madrigal. I mean Madrigal Could easily have a line for .330/ .389/406 in high A.
Altuve not fair freak of nature. Madrigal is Max out physically already.
Tim…..check it out…..short players…freak’s of nature?
JRoll was only 5/8″.
tim you know romus is only 5ft 4?
I would go Singer if Mize goes 1st as expected. Backup is Madrigal
Top choice: Brady Singer
Backup: Nick Madrigal
Definite yes on Mize if he falls
Mize if he drops. Libby, if mize is not there. a 6’5″ lefty that scouts say throws in the mid 90’s and has another advanced pitch. you can’t pass on that. hs or no hs. injury risk or not. you can’t pass on that. he could be the #1 or #2 on your staff for years to come. it will take time but he has a chance to be a very good one. phils might rue the day they passed on him if they take a 5’7″ infielder. no disrespect to his size, but, is he a good enough player to take at #3? i don’t think so.
“Libby, if mize is not there. a 6’5″ lefty that scouts say throws in the mid 90’s and has another advanced pitch. ”
To be clear, he ‘has’ thrown in the mid 90s. He doesn’t pitch in the mid-90s. He was higher when the season started with less command, and a little slower now, which is why he isn’t being discussed as the best player available. Not to say he isn’t a great prospect. If the Padres grab him, i’d be pretty jealous that they have Gore and Libertore.
Mize if he falls; if not, Bohm.
What is injury risk with liberatore?? Was he hurt? Too much positive with an 18 yr old 6ft5 lefty with tons of talent to pass up if hs is only negative
Is ethan Hankins or carter Stewart being considered both hs pitchers are they close to liberatore in talent should be considered
Unless it’s a smoke screen, sounds like they are going the NCAA route.
If really scared of hs pitcher take madrigal or best college pitcher with most upside
Bohm then Bart. Yes if Mize available
Mize, Bart, Bohm, Singer, Liberatore, Madrigal
Madrigal. Bart if Madrigal’s off the board.
Yes to falling Mize.
As I read through this thread, I see why guys don’t work out. The warts on some of these guys is pretty significant. In 2 years will we be using our 20/20 hindsight to say the front office blew another #1 pick. Does power trump (sorry about that) OBP? Is a college pitcher a better long term bet than a HS pitcher? I’ve seen the stats on these types of questions but in the end it’s purely based on an individual. Will we get the next Larry Greene or Hewitt or is guy the next Bryant or Altuve? Sometimes the guy checks all the right boxes and says all the right things but at the next level… who knows what will happen?
Yes if mine falls.
Madrigal, then I’m torn between singer and libby with a lean toward singer due to eta.
mize, ugh spell check
Kingery, Ceasar, and JP Crawford should have zero impact on who the Phillies draft. You draft the best player and figure it out.
One name no one mentioned is Cole Winn, rhp out of California’s high school ranks. It’s been reported that the Giants may consider him at no. 2 overall as a way to save money. But more importantly, the Braves are said to have shown increased interest in him, which is more significant to me because the Braves obviously have a good eye for talent.
Here’s a write up on him. I encourage y’all to watch clips of him, too. Smooth, repeatable mechanics with mid-90’s range. Three plus pitches. Still some projection left. I know the Phillies are leaning college players, but he looks promising.
Interesting, but I highly doubt the Phillies will select a high school pitcher at 1:3, Or, for that matter, any prep player.
Probably not, they’re risk adverse
I don’t know, I read yesterday that they’ve been scouting Liberatore a lot recently, and that the link to Alec Bohm isn’t as tight as most assume.
It’s funny but with all the strike outs occurring at the major league level, I wonder if the Phils lean towards Madrigal. This kid will hit for average and not strike out much. He also plays a solid 2B and could be major league ready by 2020. His ceiling is definitely lower than others but there are no guarantees in the draft. If Bohm has to play 1B, he’s not as valuable. The pitchers all have warts and the normal pitcher arm health risks. I think it will be Bart or one of the two IFs but I’m not sure which one.
I have to cut off comments so that I can pull the draft pick information out that I asked you to provide.
This was not intended as a discussion thread. It will be easier for me to only have to deal with the information I asked for. Unfortunately, I have to delete all the comments that should have gone into the Draft Discussion thread. Sorry.
Can we stop talking about little Madrigal please. What will he do with a wooden bat and playing 150-155 games a year. Take Bart or Singer, someone with some IMPACT
Bohm, then Singer. I’d be happy with Bart or Liberatore if the Phils go that way. Given our strength as an organization at this point seems to be developing pitchers, I want a very advanced bat (like Bohm or Bart) if I take a position player. Bohm will stay at 3B, he just might not be a premier fielder there.
Offical Picks for 2018
Singer (unless Miz is available, even still I like Singer a lot)
India over Bohm, Bohm sounds challenged defensively
I’d pass on Madrigal for the Phillies, too many players close enough to his skills sets alreday in the system, but would like for other teams.
Madrigal has a 65 rating for hit tool. Phillies have ZERO players with 60+. Haseley and Moniak (both OF’s) still ranked at a 55. Only Brito is a middle infielder with a 55 hit rating. Wouldn’t say we are overloaded with elite hitters in the system.
Sorry if this is not draft discussion.
Mize if available YES (if he diesnt have serious health issue)
Hi everyone, I have been away from the board for awhile. O would like to know how Alex John hits left handed piitchers? If he hits them well than I would go with John after watching a LOG pitcher with a5 ERA shut us down.
Should be I not O and a LOG not LOG. But I would take Mize if he is heathy
