The Texas Rangers selected Kumar Rocker with their third pick and blew every expert’s mock draft. This made it a little more likely that a quality player would reach the Phillies at number seventeen.
The Phillies used their first-round pick to select outfielder Justin Crawford out of Bishop Gorman HS in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is an LSU commit. He is the son of former big leaguer Carl Crawford. As a senior, he hit .503 with 52 RBI, 20 stolen bases, 77 hits, and a .562 OBP. Scouts rank him as a 70 running.
As a Las Vegas native, he should be able to work out with Bryce Harper and Bryson Stott during the offseason.
Crawford is 6’3, 175 lbs, born January 13, 2004. He bats left-handed and throws right-handed. He was ranked the 13th best prospect by MLB.
Ranked prospects still on the board when the Phillies picked at #17 were
- Juco 3B Cam Collier #8
- Prep RHP Brock Porter #11
- College C Daniel Susac #12
- Prep LHP Brandon Barriera #15
- Prep LHP Robby Snelling #16
- College SS Zach Neto #17
- as were college pitchers Prielipp and Tidwell (#25 and #27)
The Phillies had the 17th overall selection in the first round. They gave up their second-round pick when they signed free agent outfielder Nick Castellanos who had a qualifying offer attached.
The Phillies are done until Monday when the draft continues with the third round.

This is a forum for draft discussion to keep it separate from other conversations.
As in previous years, I’ll post a place for daily draft discussions until the draft is completed, then, weekly draft discussions until the end of the signing period. Draft signings will be tracked here – 2022 Draft Tracker
