The Phillies selected high schooler Kelly Dugan with the 75th pick in the Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft.
Here’s what Baseball America had to say about Dugan:
Switch-hitting first baseman Kelly Dugan has some power now in his 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame and projects to hit for more down the line, though he likely will wind up doing that at Pepperdine. He’s a solid runner at around 7.1 seconds over 60 yards and has decent arm strength, so he could give the outfield a try. He’s the son of actor/director/producer Dennis Dugan, who has worked frequently with Adam Sandler for years.
The Phillies drafted him as an outfielder. That they were able to throw in the line about his father’s work says a lot about the confidence behind this player.
