2022 Discussion in Preparation for the Amateur Draft – June 13, 2022

This is the Phuture Phillies forum for the discussion of prospects eligible for the amateur draft that is scheduled to be held July 17-19, 2022.  You can place videos, scouting reports, or just comments here.  These discussions will be added to the pull-down menu above.

Feel free to discuss the 2022 international signing period, too.  It began on January 15th.

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.

  1. Jim Callis latest mock has the Phillies growing the arms Brandon Barriera, LHP, American Heritage HS, Plantation, Fla.

    When you want or need to buy bats SP depth in your farm is as good a currency as you will find.

    1. I am fully on board with this. Although I would consider a look at the Gilbert kid from Tennessee.

  2. For those who are interested….baseball draft combine later this week from San Diego.
    ‘As part of its expanded coverage of the Combine, MLB Network will provide two days of on-site programming from Petco Park. Coverage will begin at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT on June 16 and will be fol’lowed by six-and-a-half consecutive live hours on June 17, beginning at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT.

  3. Jonathan Mayo mocks the Phillies Oklahoma State RHP Justin Campbell. Campbell is more of a high floor prospect. Brian Barber (and Dave Dombrowski) have more of a history of drafting high ceiling kids (especially in round 1). Mayo doesn’t mention he’s heard the club connected to Campbell. He, instead, says the Phils like Brandon Barrera (he mocks Barrera to the LAAs @ 1-13), and writes he’s heard some buzz Barber has shown some interest in Pittsburgh prep SS Cole Young.

    .

    Campbell has gotten some Jim Palmer comps from scouts who have gone into the way-back machine. Most people I’ve read think he should be a fast moving middle-to-back end rotation piece. He’s #️⃣2️⃣7️⃣⬇

    1. My older son played against him many times from age 12 on. He’s a huge kid. Good athlete. Wouldn’t be surprised if he had a long career. But would be flabbergasted if he had a career anything like Palmer’s!

  4. 12. Cole Young (Mayo mentioned Phils have some interest)
    13. Brock Jones (mention him for you, ciada)
    16. Dylan Lesko
    17. Brock Porter
    21. Brandon Barriera
    22. Drew Gilbert
    23. Justin Crawford
    27. Jacob Berry
    28. Connor Prielipp
    31. Gabriel Hughes
    32. Robby Snelling
    34. Kumar Rocker
    38. Jackson Ferris
    39. Justin Campbell
    47. Jud Fabian

  5. Hinkie – I’m off the Brock Jones train as I wrote in the other thread. After he pulverized UConn right handers for 3 home runs in the first super regional game, he struck out against almost every left hander that he faced in the next two games.

        1. Yep, I saw this one. Very excited, although, having just won the Gatorade national player of the year, he now seems to have cemented himself in the 10-12 range, according to one mock I read.

          That Barreira kid from FL looks good also, but I’m not sure how I feel about him skipping his high school team’s playoff season, a potential precedent-setting move for future prospects. I understand wanting to preserve the arm — especially with kids throwing harder and longer than ever before — but there’s also the competitive aspect.
