2022 Post Draft Discussion; August 1st

The Phillies’ draft signings are being tracked on our 2022 Draft Tracker. As signings are officially announced, the tracker will be updated.  Be sure to share any information and I will incorporate it into the tracker.

As of this posting, the Phillies have signed all their draft picks except #18 and #20.  They have spent over $6.6M on draft picks and have a little over $50.5K to spend as overages for these picks and their undrafted free agents, all of whom have a “slot” of $125K.

The Phillies have “signed” 13 NDFAs.  I believe all 13 have passed physicals and officially signed.

The signing period for draft picks ends early this week (8/1, I think).  Teams can still sign NDFAs up until schools and colleges reopen.

The draft tab on the menu above is active and up-to-date.

The Draft >>> 2022 Draft Discussions and Picks includes all our draft articles for this year and past years, as well as other links.  Some older links may no longer be active.

All draft talk is encouraged here.  This will be the last article for the 2022 Draft.

  1. I am confused on what the end date for draft signings means. I actually am past confused about what the end .date for signings means. Don’t remember whether it was two years ago or earlier but thought the Phillies signed one drafted player long after the end date. And, don’t teams have the ability to sign players all the time – if they aren’t in college? Or maybe I am just wrong. I am sure the end date listed above means something, but would someone explain what?

    1. I remember the player you are talking about. He had completed his college eligibility but injured himself before the draft. Because his eligibility was over, the Phillies could sign him up until a week before the next draft.

    2. I found this later. I think it clouds the issue even more. It seems that anyone who doesn’t have eligibility remaining at a 4-year college can sign up until a week before the next draft, Also, it looks like it sucks to be drafted at the back end of the top ten rounds.

      “Each club has until 5 p.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 1, to come to terms with its Draft selections. If a player has exhausted his collegiate eligibility, he can sign at any time up until one week prior to the next year’s Draft.”

      “Draft-and-follow picks — high school and junior college players selected after the 10th round who attend a two-year college after the Draft — can sign with their selecting teams for up to $250,000 up until a week prior to the following year’s Draft.”

  2. I am not particularly facile with social media or pasting links, but the instagram for the 20th round pick suggests he has signed.
