The Phillies snag a STEAL at 15th in the 2020 MLB Draft

The Phillies pulled off an absolute heist this evening as they selected Mick Abel (MLB 11 overall) at 15th in the 2020 MLB Draft.

Abel sits 92-95 on his fastball, but can touch 97 at times. He also happens to boast an advanced secondary arsenal, including a killer slider and a 12-6 curve. He does struggle with command issues, but is expected to sharpen those up as he grows into his 6’5” frame.

Overall, he’s a risky, but electrifying pick.
