If there’s a trend, it’s the high number of college players the team drafted in the early going. As the draft closed the Phils nabbed a bunch of high school players, mostly taking chances that they may sign for a larger bonus and decline college.

And they can take chances, since many of the earlier picks they can probably sign for a little cheaper.

That said, there’s a lot of mystery with these picks. You can read some writeups at Phillies Minor Thoughts, which goes into more detail on each of these players, but we’ll know more as players are signed and placed into the system.
