Round 26, #774 overall - Andrew Godail, LHP
Godail attended Sam Houston State, and put up some decent numbers in his career. He also attended The Woodlands High School, and you remember what happened the last time we did that. Anyway, Godail went 5-6 this season with a 2.30 ERA, so we can only go ahead and assume that his Hamels-like run support will translate to Hamels-like pitching prowess in the Majors. Right? Something to watch... Godail had 13 wild pitches and 12 hit batsmen in just 97 2/3 innings. Wild, indeed.
Round 27, #804 overall - Jake Reppert, LHP
I can't say I have ever heard of Northwest Nazarene College (ID) before today. There's a first time for everything, I suppose. Reppert went 5-5 with a 3.56 ERA in 15 games this season, 13 of them being starts. He is listed at 6'5", and is another college senior pitcher, a continuing trend for the Phillies in this draft.
Round 28, #834 overall - Horace Stubblefield, RHP
Any time you can draft a guy that sounds like a Civil War General, you have to go for it. Stubblefield, who apparently goes by the name of Gandy, was an Aggie at Texas A&M for two years, but moved on to the University of West Alabama in order to have a better shot at getting playing time. He was a 14th round pick (Astros) out of Lufkin HS in 2011, but opted to enroll at A&M instead. He threw 84 innings for West Alabama this season, allowing just 62 hits and 29 walks while striking out 71. He posted a 1.82 ERA.
Round 29, #864 overall - Von Watson, OF
The Phillies have finally ended their run on pitchers by choosing Watson, an outfielder from Briarcrest Christian HS in Tennessee. He has signed with Lipscomb University, so this could be a tough sign for the Phillies. But he appears to know someone that the Phillies took approximately 28 rounds ago, first rounder Cornelius Randolph, and maybe that will entice him to join the organization:
Congrats man! @c_randolph— Von Watson (@Von_Watson27) June 9, 2015
Round 30, #894 overall - Kyle Nowlin, OF
Nowlin is a junior from Eastern Kentucky University, and had some pretty great numbers this year: .326/.438/.690. We're just going to go ahead and assume he's going to do that in the Majors, too.
