The Phillies had 10 picks on day three. Here they are.
11th round – Emaarion Boyd is an outfielder out of South Panola HS in Mississippi. He has a commitment to Northwest Community College.
Matt Paul, agent former scout – “A rair combination: The electricity. The upside. The impact. The elite run tool. The elite hand speed. The elite athleticism. The offensive rhythm + defensive prowess.”
Brian Sakowski, national crosschecker at Perfect Game – “Explosive is the word that comes to mind on Boyd. The bat speed and athletic twitch are both plus, and it makes a very exciting profile overall. The amount of bat speed + the body projection give him huge power upside”
PG Deep South – “Lots of twitch, EZ + bat spd. Bat-to-ball, super accurate barrel stands out. Developing pwr, spd plays on the paths.”
PG 2021 National Showcase – “Emaarion Boyd is a 2022 OF with a 6-0 160 lb. frame from Batesville, MS who attends South Panola. Large, athletic frame with square shoulders and a lean, projectable build with room to fill throughout moving forward. Fast-twitch, posted a 6.56 60-yard dash. Primary outfielder, speed tool plays extremely well and projects as a center fielder at the next level, plenty of quickness and agility to actions, moves in on the ball well, full arm action through the back, shows present arm strength on throws with some carry to intended base. Right-handed hitter, begins with a wide base and a high hand set and back elbow at the plate; active hands, remains very short to the ball and generates easy bat speed through the zone. Twitch plays in swing, aggressive in the box and shows quickness to hands and employs a line drive oriented approach, shows strength to the pull side; high end tools across board and projects very well. Selected to the 2021 Perfect Game All-American Classic.”

The Phillies have a bonus pool allotment of $6,307,000. The slot breakdown is in the attached tracker.
Rounds 11 thru 20 are each capped at $125, 000 which doesn’t count against the bonus pool; any portion of a single bonus that exceeds $125K counts against the bonus pool. A bonus under $125K does not allow the “savings” to be applied to another player.
Contracts for non-drafted free agents are capped at $20,000.
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 (August 1st). Draft signings will be tracked here – 2022 Draft Tracker
