Phillies MOD #3


Phillies MOD #1: here; MOD #2: here; The Good Phight Post: here.

Alright, so between discussions here at a The Good Phight, it looks like we have a pretty good list of candidates for pick 40, focusing on HS position players. My current top ten for this pick:

28. Trey Williams, 3B, Valencia HS (CA)
32. Rio Ruiz, 3B, Bishop Amat HS (CA)
37. Nick Williams, OF, Galveston Ball HS (TX)
41. Jesse Winker, OF, Olympia HS (FL)
43. Tanner Rahier, SS, Palm Desert HS (CA)
48. Corey Seager, SS, Northwest Cabarrus HS (NC)
49. Carson Kelly, 3B, Westview HS (OR)
56. Clint Coulter, C, Union HS (WA)
58. Jesmuel Valentin Diaz, SS, Puerto Rico Baseball Academy (PR)
59. C.J. Hinojosa, SS, Klein Collins HS (TX)

As a reminder, the Philles picks in first three rounds, with BA's recently released list of slot values:

Pick 40: $1,291,300; 5% over = $1,355,865
Pick 54: $940,200; 5% over = $987,210
Pick 77: $659,800; 5% over = $692,790
Pick 95: $500,000; 5% over = $525,000
Pick 125: $374,400; 5% over = $393,120

By pick 77, signability becomes an issue to keep in mind. With five picks, and the proportion of draft picks the Phillies have picked in the last four years in the first three rounds, I think we should pick 1 college pitcher, 1 college bat, 1 high school arm, and 1 more high school bat after pick 40. So, I am going to share, from my current rankings, the top ten who could be available at picks 54, 77, 95, and 125. Knowing the parameters of 1 college arm, 1 college bat, 1 prep arm, and 1 prep bat, and the slot limitations, please post below who you would pick with each pick. I know this is a lot of work, but one week out, I want to make sure we have a good idea what direction to go in the draft.

Pick 54 top ten:

45. Adam Brett Walker, OF, Jacksonville University
46. Jake Barrett, RHP, Arizona St
47. Branden Kline, RHP, Virginia
48. Corey Seager, SS, Northwest Cabarrus HS (NC)
49. Carson Kelly, 3B, Westview HS (OR)
50. Clate Schmidt, RHP, Allatoona HS (GA)
51. James Ramsey, OF, Florida St
52. Nick Travieso, RHP, Archbishop McCarthy HS (FL)
53. Nolan Sanburn, RHP, University of Arkansas
54. Cody Poteet, RHP, San Diego Christian HS (CA)

Pick 77 top ten:

68. Tom Murphy, C, Buffalo
69. Pat Light, RHP, Monmouth
70. Brandon Thomas, OF, Georgia Tech
71. Keon Barnum, 1B, King HS (FL)
72. Alex Wood, LHP, Georgia
73. Jose Orlando Berrios, RHP, Juan XXII HS (PR)
74. Peter O'Brien, C, Miami
75. Kieran Lovegrove, RHP, Mission Viejo HS (CA)
76. Lex Rutledge, LHP, Samford
77. Jameis Winston, OF, Hueytown HS (AL)

Pick 95 top ten:

86. Daniel Robertson, SS, Upland HS (CA)
87. Alex Bregman, SS, Albuquerque Academy (NM)
88. J.T. Chargois, RHP, Rice
89. Austin Maddox, RHP, Florida
90. Christian Walker, 1B, South Carolina
91. Mitch Nay, OF, Hamilton HS (AZ)
92. Carson Fulmer, RHP, All Saints Academy (FL)
93. Tony Renda, 2B, California
94. Kyle Hansen, RHP, St. John's
95. Josh Conway, RHP, Coastal Carolina

Pick 125 top ten:

116. Kevin Plawecki, C, Purdue University
117. Austin Fairchild, LHP, St. Thomas (TX)
118. Christian Jones, LHP, Oregon
119. Josh Henderson, OF, Home Schooled (VA)
120. Mitch Brown, RHP, Century HS (MN)
121. Skye Bolt, OF, Holy Innocents Episcopal HS (GA)
122. Matt Reynolds, 3B, Arkansas
123. Fernelys Sanchez, OF, George Washington HS (NY)
124. Edwin Diaz, RHP, Caguas Military Academy (PR)
125. Hoby Milner, LHP, Texas

Here is my ideal draft, given these rankings, and assuming other players who I have ranked higher don't drop down to us:

Pick 40: Trey Williams (video); back-up: Rio Ruiz (video) - HS Bat

Pick 54: James Ramsey (video); back-up: Adam Brett Walker (video) - College Bat

Pick 77: Jose Orlando Berrios (video); back-up: Kieran Lovegrove (video) - HS Arm

Pick 95: Kyle Hansen (video); back-up: Josh Conway (video) - College Arm

Pick 125: Fernelys Sanchez (video); back-up: Josh Henderson (video) - HS Bat

What do you think of this? How would you pick 2 HS Bats, 1 HS Arm, 1 College Arm, 1 College Bat with these five picks?
