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.
The Phillies draft signings can be found on our 2019 Draft Tracker. As signings are announced, the tracker will be updated. I won’t post signing bonuses until they are official. I think I have ten, so far.
The Phillies have signed seven of their nine top ten picks. #1 Bryson Stott and #3 Erik Miller remain unsigned.
Twenty-one additional picks have also signed. Last week, a lot of scouts and other team officials were around the Complex. New players, too. I learned from one guy who might know, that the Phillies expected to sign an additional five of their draft picks. Based on the signings already reported or in camp, Stott and Miller would have to be two of the five. They might then have enough to 1 or 2 of their HS picks and 1-2 of their juco picks.
Of the 28 picks in camp, all who had signed were taking part in practice and work outs. Friday, Beauchamp (pronounced Bee-chum) and Van Scoyoc were still watching from the side. Over the weekend, Beauchamp signed. I’ll know about Van Scoyoc when I watch practice Monday.
In addition to the new draft picks, the Phillies have signed a dozen young free agents.
