As we have in past years, Phuture Phillies will continue posting a 2019 First Year Player Draft thread so we can keep all our draft talk in one place. This is where I will look for any information on signings you uncover and post in the Comments Section. If you hear one of our new prospects has signed, please share the link here.
So far, I have heard/read the following –
- #29 Micah Yonamine, a C from Iolani HS, has been reported on social media to have signed for $280K, considerably over slot
- #35 Michael Prosecky, a LHP from Nazareth Academy, has announced his intention to honor his commitment to Louisville
- #5 Gunner Mayer, a RHP from San Joaquin Delta College, has indicated via social media that he is a member of the Phillies organization
- #13 Hunter Markwardt, a CF from Oklahoma Christian, has indicated via social media that he is a member of the Phillies organization
- #22 Tucker Maxwell, a CF from Georgia, has indicated via social media that he is a member of the Phillies organization, his college coach also indicated that he will sign
- Steve Noworyta, Special Assistant to Josh Bonifay, the Director of Player Development, indicated in an interview that over two dozen drafted players are in Clearwater taking physicals. I’ll nail down the names of any who are there this week
The Phillies draft signings are being tracked on our 2019 Draft Tracker. As signings are officially announced, the tracker will be updated. Be sure to share any information and I will incorporate it into the tracker.
Of course, all draft talk is encouraged here. I will start new threads if/when the number of comments becomes too unwieldy. Last year, that was weekly.
I should be able to confirm a lot of signings before the Phillies announce them. As in previous years, I expect players to arrive at the Carpenter Complex well before any official announcements by the Phillies.
