Yesterday, the Phillies drafted Jesse Biddle in the first round. Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, and other notable players have been drafted in the first round, however, some star players like Ryan Howard have been drafted in later rounds. Here is a roundup of a busy day in the Phillies draft room:

Perci Garner, Ball State, (2nd round, 77th overall) – RHP

Cameron Rupp, Texas, (3rd round, 108th overall) – C

Rupp has been praised for his power and strong arm.  He is not likely to hit for average, but has strong power potential.  He is also solid defensively.

Bryan Morgado, Tennessee (4th round, 141st overall) – LHP

Morgado has been inconsistent.  He has an above average fastball, and his slider is developing.

Scott Frazier, Upland HS (5th round- 171st overall)- RHP

Frazier’s fastball touches 95 at times. He has a great changeup, and his curveball is improving.

Guantlett Eldemire, Ohio University, (6th round – 201st overall)- CF

Michael Nesseth, Nebraska, (17th round, 531st overall)- RHP

Nesseth was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 15th round in 2009, but he did not sign. He struggled to open the year, and was shut down due to an elbow injury.

In other news, Jamie Moyer’s son, Dillon, was drafted in the 22nd round by the Minnesota Twins.

    Would it kill them to draft an infielder?

    The Big 12 has 10 schools, the Big 10 has 12 – Perfect, I had a hard enough time explaining to my girlfriend why it made sense the Big 10 had 11 schools.
