David Murphy reports first-round pick Anthony Hewitt has signed with the Phillies.
The 19-year-old shortstop cum outfielder cum third baseman has agreed to a compensation package that includes a $1.4 million singing bonus. He will likely start off in the Gulf Coast League with the GCL Phillies.
Hewitt isn’t figured to become an integral part of the Phils’ plans for some time (see maybe 2013). But it’s good the Phils signed him and pretty quickly.
