  1. This thread was looking awfully lonely so I spent some time doing a Phillies mock draft. There’s still four months to go until the draft, so this could look ridiculous by July.

    ROUND 1: James Wood … is a physically imposing prep OFer. At 6’6″/230 lb, he’s probably the biggest position player in the draft (college or HS). Wood is from Maryland, but attends HS at IMG Academy in Florida, where he faces some of the top competition in America. The 18 YO LHH has all the tools (strong arm, quick hands, and lots of raw power) to blossom into a star.

    ROUND 2: Joe Rock … is a LHP with good present stuff, and (more importantly) tons of projection. The Ohio University south paw is long and lean (6’6″/215) and young for the college class (won’t turn 21 until after the draft). He already throws 91-94 and has reached back for 96 in the past. The mid 80’s SL is good. The CH is developing. As he fills out, all three offerings should improve. Rock tossed a 7-inning no-hitter earlier this month. For the season, the Pittsburgh native has totaled 18 IP, 9 H, 6 BB, 30 K.

    1. ROUND 3: Brody Brecht … is another kid with the physical tools to dream on. The uber athletic prepster is 6’5″/185 lbs, and has excelled in four sports (football/baseball/basketball/track) during his HS career in Iowa. Becht has mostly focused on football to this point (he’s a three star WR recruit who has committed to play for the Iowa Hawkeyes), but if Brian Barber offers him enough cash, the Phillies would be getting a long, lean, and raw 18 YO RHP who already reaches 98 MPH from an extreme overhead delivery that produces excellent downhill plain.

      ROUND 4: Braden Olthoff … is a college arm who isn’t the hardest thrower (89-92), but throws strikes (just 1.2 BBs/9 IP over the past two seasons) and is a wizard at making the baseball dance. The Tulane RHP carries a three pitch mix, but it’s his circle CH that gets most batters to go fishing.

      Olthoff spent two years in JUCO before matriculating to Tulane. Over the last two seasons, he’s totaled 46 IP, 30 H, 6 BB, 65 K. The 6’4″/225 lb thrower turns 22 YO today (Happy Birthday, Braden!) so he would come at a discout.

      1. ROUND 5: Kyle Manzardo … owns one of the top bats in the PAC-12. The Washington St 1B/DH isn’t the biggest guy on the diamond (6’1″/205 lb), but he’s got a sweet LH swing that has produced a .328/.396/.505 slash line in his three seasons in Pullman. This year, the Idaho native is at .404/.491/.809, 9 BB/HBP, 3 K.

        ROUND 6: Mason Erla … is another older (cheaper) college arm who has enough stuff to reach MLB in a short time. The 6’4″/205 lb Michigan St RHP short arms the ball, but it doesn’t prevent him from throwing hard (94-96) and throwing strikes (2.25 BB/9 IP the past two seasons). Erla also packs an above avg SL, a CH, and a CB. since the 2020 season, he has registered 32 IP, 26 H, 8 BB, 50 K. The 5th year Spartan will turn 24 at the end of the summer so he’d also be a bonus pool saver.

        1. ROUND 7: Jason Ruffcorn … is yet another older, cost cutting college pitcher who could not only help the Phillies afford their first three picks, but could be fast tracked to club’s BP. Jason is the son of former Phillie Scott Ruffcorn. The 6’2″/205 lb Sooner closer attacks hitters from a funky arm angle that helps to make his 93-95 FB/sinker/CH move. Over the past couple of seasons, Ruffcorn has averaged 12.1 K & just 1.3 BB/9 IP. He’ll turn 23 in July.

          See Ruffcorn at the 3:17 mark of the video below.

          ROUND 8: Matheu Nelson … was originally drafted by the Phillies in the 39th round in 2018. The 5’11″/210 lb back stop turned the team down, and headed for Florida State. As a Seminole the RHH catcher has played solid defense, and slashed .274/.438/.452. Nelson played his HS ball in Clearwater at Calvary Christian where he was coached by Roy Halladay and is close to the Halladay family.

          1. ROUND 9: Kenyon Yovan … is a former two way star at Oregon who was once considered a likely top two round hard throwing RHP prospect. Unfortunately, blood clots have limited his time on the mound the past couple of years. The 6’2″/225 lb RHH is now a better prospect as a 3Bman. During the 2020 and ’21 seasons, he’s slashing an incredible .437/.571/.831 and has belted 8 HRs in 71 ABs. He’s still playing in college as a 23 YO because of arm surgery and COVID.

            ROUND 10: Sam Strickland … is a 6’1″/205 lb LHP from Samfrod Univ who throws a low 90’s FB, and an avg CH & CB. He makes it work because he hides the ball well and dominates the K-zone. Over the past two seasons, Strickland has tossed 39 IP, K’d 51, and allowed only 4 BBs.

            1. ROUND 11: Josh Hood … is a very good player who has really gotten screwed by the pandemic. Hood is a Vineland native (so you know he’s got to be a good player!) who began his college career with a bang at UPenn. The 6’1″/195 lb RHH SS was named a Freshman All-American in 2019 when he slashed .331/.411/.580 & launched 8 HRs. He got off to a slow start in 2020 (.263/.256/.342 in just 38 ABs) before COVID hit. The Ivy League (like everyone else) never re-opened the 2020 season. To make matters worse, the Ivy League decided to cancel the 2021 season as well. That has left Hood playing summer ball in the Coastal Plains League (where he was very good), and working out here in South Jersey while he seeks a new school. Brian Barber should take some of the bonus pool money saved from picking multiple college seniors, and throw some at Hood before he lands at another college and rebuilds his value.

    1. Not sure if he’s related to Joe Dirt, but I’m pretty sure Joe Rock made multiple appearances on the Flinstones 🙂

      1. Hinkie my buddies kid is at the performance center and he tipped me off on hood I’ll keep you updated but I suspect he goes much higher then round 11

        1. Fishy … I’ve been a Josh Hood fan since his freshman year at UPenn. I believe he’s a day two talent who may slide a bit because of the COVID situation (slow start in 2020 in a SSS & no Ivy League season in more than a calendar year). 11th round picks are often used to select guys who could/should have been drafted higher, but got passed over because of signability concerns. BTW … I have no direct knowledge of what kind of money the former NJ HS Player Of The Year will be demanding.
          In recent years, the Phillies have drafted Josh Stephen, Jake Holmes, and Marcus Lee Sang in the 11th round, but paid them 4th round money. That’s what I see as a possibility for Hood.

          So … in a nutshell … I agree that Josh Hood is a round 3-6 talent. In the draft, it’s not always the round you are picked, it’s the money you are offered (and sign for) that matters.

          1. BTW … any idea what schools Hood is looking into?
            I’m kind of envisioning Hood at a place like Duke or UNC or Notre Dame. I know Hood’s former teammate, Peter Matt, transferred to Duke as a grad student this season. And his other UPenn teammate, Christian Scafidi, took off for the Fightin’ Irish this season. (also as a grad student).

  2. Just great work Hinkie! I know we have time to go, and I believe pick #1 is a Pitcher, but I love reading your reports and your opinions. Thank You

  3. Here’s a recap of what some of the top draft eligible pitching prospects did this weekend.

    * Jaden Hill … rebounded nicely from the puke show he starred in last weekend. The LSU RHP went 6.2 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 2 BB, 6 K & was up to 98 MPH early against Texas San Antonio. For the year, Hill is 17 IP, 13 H, 4 BB, 15 K, 4.24 ERA.

    * Gunnar Hoglund … was tremendous Friday night. The Ole Miss RHP needed just 88 pitches to go 6 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 BB, 14 K(!) vs Louisiana Monroe. This season, the former first round pick has registered 23.2 IP, 16 H, 6 BB, 42 K, 3.04 ERA.

    1. * Ty Madden … used his upper 90’s FB & hard biting SL to settle down South Carolina. The 6’3″/215 lb RHP totaled 7 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 3 BB, 5 K. Madden is now 27 IP, 10 H, 9 BB, 35 K, 1.33 ERA for 2021.

      * Tommy Mace … was solid vs Jacksonville. The Gator RHP registered 5 IP (98P), 2 R, 3 H, 2 BB, 7 K. This year, Mace is 23 IP, 13 H, 4 BB, 31 K, 1.96 ERA.

      1. * Jordan Wicks … is the top college LHP up for grabs this summer. The Kansas St “ace” carries a four pitch mix highlighted by a ++CH and 91-93 FB w/lots of spin. The 6’3″/220 lb Wildcat hurler went 6.1 IP, 1 R, 5 H, 2 BB, 4 K vs Rice on Saturday. For the season, Wicks is 25.1 IP, 19 H, 5 BB, 32 K, 1.78 ERA.

        * McCade Brown … is another arm to keep an eye on. The Indiana Hoosier RHP is long and lean (6’6″/200), young (won’t turn 21 until August), and has a very live arm (95-97 MPH and a power breaker with spin rates in excess of 3000 RPM). This weekend, Brown completely dominated Penn St (7 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 2 BB, 16 K). The Illinois native has totaled 14 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 28 K, 0.64 ERA so far in 2021.

        .

        Also … Sam Bachman missed his second consecutive start for Miami, Ohio with a sore shoulder. If Bachman can get back on the mound and prove he’s healthy, he could be in play for the Phillies at 1-13. He throws 100 w/+CH & +SL.

        1. There is a pretty good group of LH CP’s who could be available for the Phillies in round two (48th overall pick).

          Joe Rock … is a guy I mocked to the Phillies earlier in this thread. He’s a Western Pennsylvania kid who throws for Ohio U. He reminds me a little of James Paxton except for the fact that Rock throws from a slightly lower arm slot (that should, in theory, cause more movement on his pitches). So far in 2021, The 6’6″/215 lb southpaw has registered 18 IP, 9 H, 6 BB, 30 K, 1.00 ERA (including a 7-inning no-hitter). Rock and the Bobcats had their weekend series cancelled because of a COVID outbreak.

          * Christian MacLeod … is a 6’4″/227 lb Friday night starter for Miss St. He uses a three pitch mix (low 90s FB that he commands well, +CB, and CH) to dice opposing lineups. This weekend he struck out seven of the first nine he faced, and totaled 5 IP (72 P), 0 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 11 K against Eastern Mich. Last year’s Freshman All-American is also excelling in year two (14.2 IP, 14 H, 6 BB, 28 K, 1.84 ERA).

          Ryan Webb … has been a reliever for most of his career at the Univ of Georgia. This season the 6’1″/190 lber is starting for the Bulldogs. So far, so good … really good. Webb has totaled 12.2 IP, 5 H, 4 BB, 19 K.

          1. Andrew Painter … is one of the top prep arms for July’s draft. He attends school in Florida so he’s already knee deep into his season.

            1. Meanwhile … the two local NJ HS arms who could go in the first round are still waiting for their seasons to start. Anthony Solometo (Bishop Eustace) and Chase Petty (Mainland Regional) won’t get going until April.

            2. Yeah, Romus. Definitely one of my favorites. I’ve thought, for a while now, he could be the first HSP taken in July. I watch him throw, and he reminds me a lot of MacKenzie Gore. So athletic, and already up to 96 with that funky delivery. Wow!

    1. Thanks for posting that, v1. I’d be shocked and thrilled if Jaden Hill is around at 1-13. Yesterday, I was putting together a list of the most likely best prospects who will be available for the Phillies in the first round. I’ll post it later. IMO, Jaden Hill is a near lock to go top 10, barring an arm injury.

  4. Here’s my list I mentioned above.

    I believe these 10 guys will be gone before the Phillies pick:
    College Pitchers) Kumar Rocker, Jack Leiter, Jaden Hill, Ty Madden, Gunnar Hoglund
    College Hitter) Matt McClain
    HS Hitters) Jordan Lawlar, Marcello Mayer, Khalil Watson, Brady House

    IMO, the Phillies pick will most likely come from this group:

    Adrian Del Castillo (C H)
    Henry Davis (C H)
    Sal Frelick (C H)
    Justice Thompson (C H)

    Jordan Wicks (C LHP)
    Sam Bachman (C RHP)
    McCade Brown (C RHP)
    Tommy Mace (C RHP)
    Ryan Cusick (C RHP)

    James Wood (HS H)

    Andrew Painter (HS RHP)
    Chase Petty (HS RHP)
    Anthony Solometo (HS LHP)
    Jackson Jobe (HS RHP)

    * Jud Fabian is no longer (currently) a top half of the first round prospect.

    Here’s how I’d rank the players who could be available at 1-13.

    1. Henry Davis … I’m not usually a fan of using first round picks on catchers, but he’s got both a solid floor and a high ceiling.
    2. Anthony Solometo …
    3. James Wood
    4. McCade Brown
    5. Ryan Cusick
    * Sam Bachman would have made this list, but he’s missed his last two starts with a sore shoulder.

    1. Hinkie…if it is a college arm that they are interested in….if Wicks is still there at 13….I do not see them passing him by.

      1. Romus … you’re right. Wicks would be the safest pick (of the group available). He looks like a good bet to be a 4SP in MLB, and he shouldn’t spend too much time in MiLB. He gets a ton of swings and misses on his CH. But I think I’d rather see the Phillies use that 1-13 pick on a guy who could be a top half of the rotation SP, or a middle of the LU bat.

        1. Hinkie…..for those higher ceiling guys….then you, I assume, are looking at HS picks. There is some built in risks there, but when they ‘hit’ they do well.

          Remember 2014…Ruben took virtually all college players…first 27 picks , all college players but Sam McWilliams…..two hits …Nola and Hoskins

          https://www.baseball-reference.com/draft/?team_ID=PHI&year_ID=2014&draft_type=junreg&query_type=franch_year&from_type_jc=0&from_type_hs=0&from_type_4y=0&from_type_unk=0

        2. Is it greedy to say I would like a guy that can come quick and has the potential to be dominant?

          1. DMAR….yes it is greedy.. 🙂
            But then again we all are greedy in that respect.
            Wicks or Fitts (college arms) are the safer bet……but HSers like Painter, House or Wood could also be dominant….just that it may take a few years longer.

    1. Another possibly ace pitcher drafted by the Yankees….and decided to go on to college vs signing with them. Nevertheless, they probably will sign him in 2029.

  5. Last week, Prospects Live mocked Jaden Hill to the Phillies (thanks to v1 for posting that). At that time, I stated I would be “shocked” if the LSU RHP was available at 1-13.
    Did anything happen this weekend to change Hill’s draft status?

    Jaden Hill … lost LSU’s SEC opener on Friday night. The numbers weren’t good (7.1 IP, 6 R, 9 H, 2 BB, 2 K), but I think those numbers are a little misleading. A few of those hits were ground balls that found holes, and three of the runs were scored after Hill exited the game. The 6’4″/230 lb hurler held his velo throughout the contest (96 MPH in the 8th inning), and still showed above avg SL’s and CH’s.
    The K% is probably the only red flag that could maybe cause the the former day three draft pick to slide this July. In 2021, Hill has registered 24.1 IP, 22 H, 6 BB, 17 K.

    Ryan Cusick … is a top contender for the Phillies at 1-13 IMO. The Wake Forest RHP is an imposing dude (6’6″/230 lb) with maybe the top FB in the draft (upper 90’s/has hit 100 multiple times). The Massachusetts native also spins a mean (though inconsistent) CB and an avg CH. On Friday, the Deamon Deacon “ace” went 6 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 2 BB, 10 K in a win vs Georgia Tech. This season, Cusick is 17.1 IP, 14 H, 7 BB, 31 K.

    1. Jordan Wicks … is the top draft eligible college LHP, and another top candidate to end up the Phillies first round pick. The 6’3″/220 lb Kansas St hurler attacks hitters with a low 90’s FB, two solid breaking balls, and ++CH that could get MLB hitters out right now. This weekend, Wicks totaled 6 IP, 1 R, 5 H, 3 BB, 10 K and beat New Mexico. This year, the 21 YO Wildcat has totaled 31.1 IP, 24 H, 8 BB, 42 K, and a 1.78 ERA.

      Joe Rock … is also a LHP. A couple of weeks ago, I mocked him to the Phillies in the second round. Last week’s Prospects Live had the Ohio Univ thrower going towards the end of the first round. Over the next three months, it’s possible the Western Pennsylvania native could become a possibility at 1-13. Rock is 6’6″/220 lbs and gets some James Paxton comps. On Saturday, he led the Bobcats past Bowling Green by going 6 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 3 BB, 8 K. So far in 2021, Rock has registered 24 IP, 11 H, 9 BB, 38 K, 0.75 ERA.

      Sam Bachman … is the flame throwing RHP from Miami Ohio. Bachman had missed two straight starts with a sore shoulder. He was eased back into action this weekend. The 6’1″/220 lb hurler went 2 IP (26 P), 1 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K vs Toledo. He’s now up to 13 IP, 7 H, 4 BB, 17 K, 1.38 ERA this season.

      McCade Brown … is the other college arm who could be in play at 1-13. The 6’6″/225 lb Indiana RHP was nearly unhittable in his first two starts this season. This weekend, that was not the case. Purdue roughed him up to the tune of 5 IP, 4 ER, 5 H, 4 BB, 8 K. On the year, Brown is now 19 IP, 8 H, 6 BB, 36 K

      Here is Brown from 2 weeks ago when he stymied Penn State.

  6. Here’s a weekend recap for some of the higher rated college bats.

    Henry Davis … is having a helluva season. The 6’1″/195 lb Louisville C is now a good bet to be a top 10 pick. This weekend, he went 5 for 12 (2 doubles & HR), 2 BB, 4 K, 4 R, 7 RBI vs NC State. For the year, Davis is now .412/.512/.706. He’s also BB/HBP 16 times, and K’d only 7 times.

    .

    To make his prospect status even more glowing is Davis’ defensive abilities. The NY state native is very athletic, has quick feet, and a cannon arm.

    1. Adrian Del Castillo … has been a solid bat throughout his college career. He owns a lifetime .331/.424/.566 slash line. The Miami backstop had been off to a slow start early this season, but is now starting to heat up. Over the weekend, the former day three draft pick went 4 for 10 (double) vs Fla St. Del Castillo is now up to .311/.394/.541 in 2021.

      Matt McLain … was originally drafted by Arizona in the first round three summers ago. McLain opted for UCLA instead of signing with the DBacks. The 5’11″/180 lb SS went 3 for 13 (double & HR) in a weekend series against the Arizona Wildcats. This season, McLain is .300/.407/.443. He’s also BB/HBP as many times as he’s K’d (14).

      1. Jud Fabian … had his best weekend of the season as Florida opened their SEC schedule with a sweep of Texas A&M. The 6’2″/190 lb CFer went 5 for 13 (2 HRs & a double), 4 R, 4 RBI. Fabian has now raised his slash line to .289/.379/.627, 8 HR. However, the K% is still a huge red flag (29 whiffs in 83 ABs).

        1. Forgot to list Sal Frelick in the top college bat group.

          Sal Frelick … is another guy darting up draft boards. This weekend, the little BC spark plug went 5 for 13 (HR & 3 doubles) vs UNC. So far, in 2021, Frelick is at .397/.461/.705, and he has more BB/HBPs than Ks.

          1. I’ve seen Frelick drafted to us a couple times — if we keep drafting OFs, we eventually have to hit on one, right? lol Seems like a solid player though.

            1. Frelick reminds me of Andrew Benintendi. I also saw someone comp him to Shane Victorino this weekend.

            2. To me he is another version of Lenny Dykstra…short, 5’9″, stocky muscular ‘non-roid’ build,,,, 190 or so lbs… bats left with a ‘don’t- mess- with- me’ attitude.

  7. Hinkie, I see these folks love Jud Fabian and he has disappeared from some other Mock Drafts from the whole first Rd. Is there some issue there? Also, I know you have mentioned Painter before, and I thought that you like the local Eustace kid, Solomento, a little more. What’s your current thought?

    1. matt … Fabian has all the tools, but K’s too much. There’s still almost four months to go until the draft. He’ll have to cut down on the swings and misses to work his way back into the top half of the first round IMO.

      I do like Solometo a lot. At this point, though, it sounds like the LHP may be more in play at pick 2-49 than 1-13.

      1. Hinkie…any word on the trading of Competitive Balance picks yet?
        Maybe Dave D will do something Matt K never entertained on doing….if they allow it in this draft
        …..latest slotting…Round A…30-Marlins, 31-Tigers,32-Brewers,33-Rays,34-Reds. 35-Twins……..Round B…65-Pirates,66-Orioles,67-Royals,68-D-backs,69-Rockies,70-Indians,71-Cardinals, 72-Padres

        1. Good question. I don’t know the answer.
          Klentak should have been eating bad contracts for draft picks while the Phillies had meager payrolls. That was always a pet peeve of mine (and yours).

  8. 84 days until the draft. Plenty can still happen, but right now it looks like a number of very interesting/exciting arms could be in play for the Phillies at 1-13 (and even at 2-49 if they want to go back to back pitchers).

    One guy who definitely will not be available is Jack Leiter. After throwing a complete game no-hitter (120 P) last weekend, the Vanderbilt RHP tossed seven more hitless innings this weekend against Missouri before he was pulled (at 102 P). Leiter has now gone 16 consecutive frames w/o allowing a hit.

    * Ty Madden … went 6 IP, 2 R, 6 H, 2 BB, 6 K in a Texas extra inning win over Oklahoma. The former KC day three pick is now 39.1 IP, 20 H, 14 BB, 50 K, 1.83 ERA this season.

    1. * Gunnar Hoglund … continues to impress. On Friday night, the 6’4″/220 lb RHP was 6 IP, 3 R, 6 H, 1 BB, 10 K vs Alabama. That’s the 5th time he’s K’d double digit hitters this season. So far in 2021, Hoglund has registered 37.2 IP, 27 H, 11 BB, 65 K, 2.63 ERA.

      * Tommy Mace … had a rough outing vs South Carolina. The 6’6″/210 lb Florida Gator RHP went 4 IP, 4 R, 10 H, 1 BB, 5 K. The Tampa native is 34 IP, 29 H, 5 BB, 47 K, 2.91 ERA this season.

      1. * Jaden Hill … had another hiccup. The LSU RHP totaled 4 IP, 6 R, 5 H, 4 BB, 6 K against 22nd ranked Tennessee. I saw the game. Hill threw hard (95-98 MPH), and his SL and CH were good. He allowed a couple of HR’s, and then uncharacteristaclly lost the strike zone in the 5th inning. For the season, the hard throwing Arkansas native is 28.1 IP, 27 H, 10 BB, 23 K, 6.35 ERA.

        * Ryan Cusick … is looking more and more like Tyler Glassnow. The intimidating 6’6″/235 lb Wake Forest hurler made minced meat of 17th ranked FSU on Friday night by going 5 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 5 BB, 12 K. Cusick is now 22.1 IP, 16 H, 12 BB, 43 K, 2.82 ERA in 2021.

        1. * Sam Bachman … packs even more heat than Cusick. The 6’1″/235 lb Miami Ohio RHP missed a couple of starts earlier this month with a sore shoulder. He’s being eased back into action. On Saturday, Bachman threw three innings, and K’d all nine batters he faced. Along the way, he did this.

          On the season, Bachman is 16 IP, 7 H, 4 BB, 26 K, 1.13 ERA.

          * Jordan Wicks … suffered his first loss of the season at Oklahoma St. The Kansas St lefty went 6 IP, 5 R, 6 H, 2 BB, 9 K. Wicks is now 37.1 IP, 30 H, 10 BB, 51 K, 2.65 ERA.

  9. It was a mostly quiet weekend for the college first round type position players.

    * Matt McLain … went just 2 for 15 (triple), 1 BB, 4 K, 1 R, 1 SB. The UCLA SS is now down to .278/.374/.422 on the season.

    * Henry Davis … was 1 for 8, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K vs Notre Dame. The Louisville C is .370/.470/.617 in 2021.

  10. 1-13 Phillies … Jordan Wicks

    with Ryan Cusick, Tommy Mace, Sam Bachman, James Wood, Kahlil Watson, Matt McLain, Jud Fabian, Andrew Painter, and Chase Petty all going later in the first round.
