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.
