The 2018 Draft Tracker is current as of today (6/27/2018). It includes signing dates and bonus amounts as reported by MLB, plus a couple additional signings (without bonuses) that they haven’t reported yet.
The Phillies have signed 31 of their 38 draft picks. The earliest round pick not signed is #15, high school RHP Daniel Carpenter.
The Phillies have spent a known $9,107, 900 on these players.
They have signed all 8 of their picks from the first ten rounds. Eastman is reported to have received full slot. This brings their bonus expenditure to $9,301, 425.
The Phillies have exceeded their bonus allotment of $8, 858, 500. However, the additional room provided by the “5% above allotment”, gives them $193, 525 remaining that they can spend before penalties. Those dollars are applicable when a prospect beyond the tenth round signs for over $125,000.
#17 LHP Keylan Kilgore from Wichita State has signed, is in Clearwater, and has been assigned to a team.
#40 RHP Waylon Richardson from Kankakee CC signed per his announcement on social media.
Those not signed include –
- #15, Daniel Carpenter – he is commited to Central Arizona
- #21, Jake Smith – he is committed to UNC-Wilmington
- #28, Jonathan Jones – 2-sport HS player
- #33, Jake Kinney – declined, attending FSU
- #37, Ryan Rijo – juco, committed to Abilene Christian
- #38, Stephen Jones – junior pitcher at Samford
- #39, Matheu Nelson – declined, attending FSU
I will continue posting a 2018 First Year Player Draft thread as long as we need one for draft discussions.
