2018 Post Draft Discussion; July 7th

The 2018 Draft Tracker is current as of today (7/6/2018).

#33 Jake Kinney signed for a reported $185K.  That brings the reported bonus expenditure by the Phillies to $9,217,900.  That leaves them $83,525 (over $125K unspent).

There was some social media traffic that indicated that #15 Daniel Carpenter had signed, but it has been removed.  So assuming he has not signed, the Phillies were successful signing 32 of 38 draft picks, plus about five non-drafted free agents.

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
  • #37, Ryan Rijo – juco, committed to Abilene Christian
  • #38, Stephen Jones – junior pitcher at Samford
  • #39, Matheu Nelson – declined, attending FSU

The signing period closed today, this will likely be the last draft discussion posted for 2018.

  1. It would have been nice to get Carpenter signed but I think overall they did a nice job finding interesting players while being somewhat limited by not having a full stable of picks. Bohm is obviously the key; hopefully they finally nail a 1st round pick.

  2. Another big name who will be available for next year’s draft.
