The Phillies made eight picks during the second day of the draft. They surprised a lot of us by taking a prep shortstop with their third round pick. With picks four thru seven, they finally selected some pitchers. Over the final three rounds, the Phillies took another shortstop and two corner infielders.
Through ten rounds (nine picks), the Phillies have taken 8 college players and one prep player. The college breakdown was one JUCO, five four-year juniors, one fourth year senior, and one fifth-year senior.
Tuesday’s selections were as follows –
- 3rd round: Jamari Baylor, a shortstop from Benedictine School (HS)
- 4th round: Erik Miller, a junior, LHP out of Stanford
- 5th round: Gunner Mayer, a 1st year juco, RHP out of San Joaquin Delta
- 6th round: Andrew Shultz, a junior, RHP out of Tennessee
- 7th round: Brett Schulze, a junior, RHP out of Minnesota
- 8th round: Nate Fassnacht, a junior, shortstop out of George Washington
- 9th round: Rudy Rott, a 4th year senior, first baseman out of Ohio University
- 10th round: Tatum, McCarthy, a 5th year senior, third baseman out of Fesno State
On Monday, the Phillies used their first round position to select Bryson Stott, a shortstop out of UNLV. They didn’t have a second round pick. They lost it and $500,000 of international bonus money when they signed free agent outfielder Bryce Harper, who had received and declined a qualifying offer from his previous team.
The Phillies’ total bonus pool is $6,799,590.
Their complete slot breakdown is as follows (round, pick, $) –
- 1st: 14 – $4,036,800

This is a forum for draft discussion to keep it separate from other conversations.
As in previous years, I’ll post a place for daily draft discussions until the draft is completed, then, weekly draft discussions until the signing period is over. Draft signings will be tracked here – 2019 Draft Tracker
