Phillies Signed 27th Round Pick Braden Shull (LHP) and 49th Round Pick Johnathan Knight (OF)

46

Surprise. Presumably this happened just before the midnight deadline. Shull is 6'6", had a pretty good D-1 scholarship, and was brought in by the Phillies to work out when they were in St. Louis earlier this year, so this is a pretty nice pickup. He hails from Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. This is the second consecutive year in which the Phillies have signed a late-round flyer from that state with overslot money. Knight seems to be a total unknown, but here's a video of him running the bases. He's from Sebring, Florida and had been committed to St. Petersburg College (which does not have a major baseball program). [h/t Trev223]
