Here we are watching the playoffs on TV and our thoughts are turning to the 2018 MLB Draft. The Phillies have the third overall pick in the draft and we’ve found an early look at who they might choose.
The Phillies were able to translate a 31-year old reliever into a 22-year old infield prospect. The addition of Eliezer Alvarez from the Cardinals last month gives the Phillies another infield prospect.
Mickey Moniak didn’t put up big season-long numbers in 2017, but there were still some encouraging signs for the 19-year old. The fact that it was his first full-season league has to be taken into consideration.
