This is the Phuture Phillies forum for the discussion of prospects eligible for the amateur draft that is scheduled to be held in one month (July 11-13, 2021). You can place video, scouting reports, or just comments here. You can reference these weekly discussions on the menu above.
The Phillies have the 13th pick in a first round of 29 selections. The cheating Astros don’t have a first-round pick. (Or a second-round pick) There are 20 rounds plus two supplemental rounds.

Feel free to discuss the 2021 international signing period, too. It began on January 15, 2021, and runs through December 15, 2021.
The Phillies’ international signing pool is $4,732,700. We were penalized some of our bonus pool for signing Zach Wheeler. The Angels are receiving the same amount and were penalized for signing Anthony Rendon. Only the Yankees (Gerrit Cole ) and Braves (Marcell Ozuna plus penalties for the 2017 scandal) are receiving less.
International bonus pools are a hard cap. Teams cannot exceed their allotments. No trading of bonus pool allotments this year.
This space is for the discussion of prospects in the upcoming draft and international signing period. This is NOT a place for you to complain about past picks/signings or the organization’s past/current draft and international philosophies.
