The Phillies’ draft stable is going to get a little bit fuller tonight. Even though they lost their second round pick due to signing Zack Wheeler (something I think we would all do as well), they still have a chance to nab some talent in this, a shortened draft.
One night after selecting arguably the best high school pitcher in the draft, they moved again in the 3rd round to take Casey Martin, a shortstop out of Arkansas.
Here is what Fangraphs had to say:
Martin is one of the more physically gifted college players in the draft but he also has one of its worst approaches.
The team has two more picks to go tonight.
