2021 Discussion in Preparation for the Amateur Draft – January 13, 2021

The 2021 international signing period opens this Friday.

This is the Phuture Phillies forum for the discussion of prospects eligible for the amateur draft that is scheduled to be held in about 6 months (July 11-13, 2021).  You can place video, scouting reports, or just comments here.  You can reference these weekly discussions on the menu above.

Feel free to discuss the 2021 international signing period, too.  It begins on January 15, 2021, and runs through June 25, 2021.

This space is for the discussion of prospects in the upcoming draft and international signing period.  This is NOT a space for you to complain about past picks/signings or the organization’s past/current draft and international philosophy.

    1. Ricardo Perez..catcher…6’…180 lbs… …Ven…from MLB.com
      “One of the top catchers out of Venezuela and in the entire international class, Perez is a left-handed-hitting backstop with lots of tools and plenty of upside.
      ……….the athletic Perez has been praised for his receiving skills, solid footwork and quick release. He shows average arm strength and accuracy now and both are projected to be plus tools as he matures and adds more strength. …….On offense, Perez shows above average bat speed and consistently makes hard contact. He has a chance to be an above average hitter and already shows flashes of power to all fields. He has a chance to make an impact on both sides of the ball. Scouts love his makeup and his game experience. He starred in Venezuela’s Liga Central de Desarrollo — one of the country’s top leagues for prospects — and has fared well against top competition. He trains with Yasser Mendez, a member of MLB’s Trainer Partnership Program, in Valencia, Venezuela. The Phillies are the favorite to sign him.”

  1. Hinkie, in addition to them Jim Salisbury had us in on the CF, Heredia, 2B Rondon and SS, Soto. Any word on them? Also, we will get to see last year’s big signing, Yhoswar Garcia this year, hopefully.
