The 2019 Draft Tracker is up to date. All signings and bonuses that have been reported have been recorded. 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.
As signings are announced, the tracker will be updated. I won’t post signing bonuses until they are official.
I have all bonuses but Little and Beauchamp
The Phillies have signed seven of their nine top ten picks. We are still waiting on #1 Bryson Stott. They were over slot by $270.6 K on Jamari Baylor and Gunner Mayer. They were under slot on their remaining top ten picks and saved $491.3 K, leaving them with $220.7 K plus $323.790 from the unpenalized 5% overage. (+$544.49 K)
Some of the above savings was applied to the signings of over slot signings after the tenth round – Leverett, Milam, Dyar, and Yonamine. That lowers the available under slot money to $360.49 K. (Any over slot for Little and Beauchamp would of course lower this amount.)
The amount slotted for the first round pick is $4,036,800. Assuming he eventually signs for slot, the Phillies could target as many as three additional picks. All along, people have expected #11 Marcus Lee Sang and #12 Jadiel Sanchez to be the first targets. I think Shane Murphy and Logan Koester might also be targeted. Murphy’s social media account seems to indicate a willingness to sign, and Koester is from Long Island and we have had luck signing prep players from there. Plus they are both pitchers, and I would think that would further pique the Phillies’ interest. Anyway, getting 2 or 3 of these guys would be great.
In addition to the new draft picks, the Phillies have signed over a dozen young free agents.
