Move Over, JDT: Roman Quinn and Mitch Walding Sign

46

Jesen Dygestile Therrien may "progression and could be accelerated," but right now, the focus among Phillies prospect hounds shifts to 2nd rounder Roman Quinn ($775K) and 5th rounder Mitch Walding ($800K), who join the Quebec right hander in the Phillies organization. What's notable about this is that both Quinn and Walding are shortstops (though few project Quinn to stay there long-term). Add in Tyler Greene, and this is the first legitimate haul of shortstop draftees that the Phillies have made in... well, in quite some time. Count me as a big fan of this: toolsy outfielders are all well and good, but the best teams are built with an up-the-middle backbone, and the organization has been lacking in middle infield prospects recently. There's an hour left to go, but I expect that the Phillies are probably done at this point. The 2011 draft class represents a pretty solid haul overall, and I'll wrap it up with a draft recap in the next few days.
