See the update below for the latest pick!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for the 2017 MLB Draft.

Everything starts tonight, June 12 at 7 p.m. You can watch it on MLB Network on TV or you can stream it at MLB.com.

There will be a pre-show at 6 p.m., and until then you can catch up on all of Cormican’s draft previews and more exciting pre-draft content, conveniently compiled in this handy post.

The Phillies will be picking No. 8 in the first round, and then 45th overall in the second round. You can find the full draft order for the first two rounds right here.

You can check out what our good friend Matt Winkelman had to say about the draft over at Phillies Minor Thoughts. The latest mock drafts Matt included have the Phillies evenly split between Pavin Smith and Adam Haseley.

Victor Filoromo will be handling our draft posts tonight, and I’ll keep this post updated with the Phillies picks and Victor’s draft posts. (Incidentally, you can also check out Victor’s work on Baseball Prospectus now, and you totally should.)

Discuss the draft in the comments below.

UPDATE 8:00 p.m. — With the eighth pick in the draft, the Phillies have taken Adam Haseley, an outfielder from the University of Virginia. Here’s Haseley’s preview from Minor League Ball. Here’s Victor’s post on the newest member of the Phillies.

UPDATE 10:50 p.m. — With their 45th overall pick in the draft, the Phillies picked Spencer Howard, RHP from Cal Poly.
