The 2018 Draft Tracker is current as of today (6/20/2018). It includes signing dates and bonus amounts as reported by MLB.
The Phillies have signed 28 of their 38 draft picks. The earliest round pick not signed is #4, Colton Eastman.
Those not signed include –
- #15, Carpenter – he is commited to Central Arizona
- #17, Kilgore – junior reliever at Wichita State
- #21, Jake Smith – he is committed to UNC-Wilmington
- #28, Jonathan Jones – 2-sport HS player
- #33, Kinney – declined, attending FSU
- #37, Rijo – juco, committed to Abilene Christian whose head coach just stepped down
- #38, Stephen Jones – junior pitcher at Samford
- #39, Nelson – declined, attending FSU
- #40, Richardson – juco pitcher, was seen in Philadelphia
The Phillies have $8,585, 000 toward these 28 new players.
Including the 5% overage, they have $716, 425 available to sign #4 Eastman and any other picks below round ten who require more than $125,000 to sign.
If the Phillies are unable to sign Eastman, they lose his $522,900 slot allotment (plus the 5% of his slot that was included in the “Slot Plus 5% total”), and have
$193,525 $167,380 to spend on guys below round ten who want more than $125,000 to sign.
I will continue posting a 2018 First Year Player Draft thread as long as we need one for draft discussions.
