The Phillies have taken 22-year old Ender Inciarte 15th overall from the Arizona Diamondbacks’ system. Inciarte is a speedy outfielder who reached High-A Visalia last season at age 21, hitting .319/.377/.419 with 1 HR and 28 steals in 36 attempts. The lefty is 5’11 from Venezuela and could be an immediate contributor defensively and on the basepaths for the Phillies. Baseball America editor John Manuel notes that Inciarte has drawn comparisons to Endy Chavez.
Of note, the Phillies did not lose any players in the MLB portion of the Rule 5 Draft.
