Round 11
Marcus Lee Sang, CF
Owings, MD

Marcus is a 6’0” 185 lbs Center Fielder and Left Handed Pitcher. He has an above average arm and plus speed. He is committed to St. John’s University. The bat isn’t all the way there, but there’s good power. Overall, there’s enough promise that he could grow into an MLB role. I can find video of him pitching, but not hitting, so no video.

Round 12
Jadiel Sanchez, OF
Puerto Rico

Sanchez is 6’2” 185 lbs and was selected officially as a Right Fielder. He just turned 18, so he’s one of the younger players that will be drafted this year. I can’t find much on him, though Matt Breen from did note that he also pitched in high school.

Round 13
Hunter Markwardt, CF
Oklahoma Christian University

He’s a 6’1” 185 lbs senior sign. Probably an org player, but he suffered some injuries in D-I and transferred to a D-II school, where he was pretty dominant this year.

Round 14
Chris Micheles, LHP
University of Washington

He’s a 6’1” 175 lbs pure reliever. He has some control issues, but put up big strike out numbers in college. He’s a Junior, so this isn’t just org fodder, clearly the Phillies want deeper bullpen options in the minors, as this is the 3rd reliever drafted this year.

Round 15
Adam Leverett, RHP
Gordon State College (JuCo)

Again, per Matt Breen, Leverett worked out for the Phillies at CBP last week, so clearly he’s someone they’re pretty serious about. He also seems to have some control issues given a high walk rate, but he has been a starter in JuCo, so the Phillies may keep him there.

Round 16
Chris Cornelius, SS
University of Missouri

Once again, a junior, so not just strict org filler. He’s 6’0’ 186 lbs right handed hitter. He has good contact skills, but his Junior year was his only good season at the plate. If it was a fluke he’s an org player, if he has fixed his hitting and continues to drive the ball well he could end up hanging around for a while and maybe getting to a utility player role.

Round 17
Hunter Milam, LHP
Gulf Coast Community College

A 6’1” 200 lbs Lefty, he’s got big control issues, but also big stuff with a fastball/curve combo that could work well in relief if he can improve the control.

Round 18
Nick Lackney, LHP
University of Minnesota

A 6’4” 210 lbs senior sign. Another pure reliever, his stuff is more pedestrian, but he has pretty good control for a reliever.

Round 19
Spencer Van Scoyoc, LHP
University of Central Oklahoma

ENORMOUS control issues for the 6’4” D-II Lefty. He walked 44 batters in less than 40 innings. The control might be a 30 on the 20-80 scale. There’s a plus fastball and plus breaking ball, if he can figure out where they’re going.

Round 20
Keaton Greenwalt, CF
Lubbock Christian University

“Buster” Keaton is a 6’3” 175 lbs right handed hitter. Lubbock is another D-II school. Keaton showed good hitting and power there, but there are level of competition concerns. Probably an org bat, but I like the strategy of grabbing D-II players hoping they play up against better competition too.
