Track all of the Philadelphia Phillies picks in the 2016 MLB Draft

Welcome to Philly Baseball Insider's coverage of the 2016 MLB Draft. We'll track the Phillies picks - they have 40 of them in this draft - throughout the three days of the draft.

ROUND 1   |   PICK 1   |   OVERALL PICK #1

http://www.scout.com/player/206017-mickey-moniak?s=381

What they're saying about Moniak... 

"I had Moniak in the top four back in February. I backed off, in part, because I took a ridiculous amount of flack. Now, it seems like a lock that he goes in the top five. The reason I projected him so high then was the fact that he is a polished prep hitter who can stick in center and is young for his class. Every person who sees him ends up in love with him as a player. I have not gotten one negative comment all year. The only question is, will he develop power? I would bet on it being an average tool down the road." - Jeff Ellis, ScoutingBaseball.com

"Moniak hits, and hits more, and then after that, he hits just a little bit more. There's no fear in taking his bat, and scouts now see a guy who will stick in centerfield and be an above-average defensive outfielder. The tools don't scream superstar, five-tool talent, but they do scream well above-average player of the future. He's quick both on the paths and in the field, and is beginning to show he's not just a gap hitter, but can put the ball over the fence with ease. Every swing, you hear the hard thud of contact, and Moniak is sky rocketing up big boards. He's been linked to nearly every team in the top-10, and is primarily brought up as a top-five selection, even as high as Cincinnati on some mocks." - Taylor Blake Ward, ScoutingBaseball.com

ROUND 2  |  PICK 1  |  OVERALL PICK #42

http://www.scout.com/player/191828-kevin-gowdy?s=381

What they're saying about Gowdy...

"An 18-year-old control pitcher, has three solid pitches, all with good sink from a low side arm release: fastball (93-93) change-up (said to have great deception) and a slider (his out pitch.) All three are reasons why he notched an impressive K/BB ratio of 84/5 in his senior season. Gowdy is tall, lanky and, at 18, has a lot of filling-out to do. He’s a well-rounded athlete, having played baseball, soccer and basketball most of his young life. Most impressive is the black belt he earned in Tae Kwon Do. The mental strength required to achieve that level will serve him well throughout his career." - ScoutingBaseball.com

"If it weren't for Braxton Garrett, Gowdy would likely be the most polished prep arm in this draft. He has a nice three-pitch mix, all of which he throws for strikes consistently. His fastball mostly sits in the low 90's, his slider has some swing-and-miss qualities, and he has an advanced feel for a sinking changeup. Prep arms are constantly linked to being "risks," but Gowdy is climbing the ladder due to the lack of risk in taking him early in the draft." - Taylor Blake Ward, ScoutingBaseball.com

ROUND 3  |  PICK 1  |  OVERALL PICK #78

http://www.scout.com/player/191914-cole-stobbe?s=381

What they're saying about Stobbe...

As a player who contributed to winning the gold medal in the 18-and-under World Cup in Japan, he shows an ability to swing for contact and some power. He is a solid all-around player that fits at second or third in the future. - Kevin Jimenez, InsideTheHalos.com

ROUND 4 | PICK 1 | OVERALL PICK #107

http://www.scout.com/player/209651-jo-jo-romero?s=309

What they're saying about Romero...

Romero has a four-pitch mix that he knows how to use effectively. He'll throw both a two- and four-seam fastball, with the former sitting in the 89-91 mph range and the latter touching 94-95 mph at times. While his curveball was his best secondary pitch at the start of his spring, his slider and changeup have improved and perhaps surpassed the curve at this point. He is capable of throwing all of his pitches for strikes. There have been some concerns about his durability and some think he might end up in a bullpen. Though he is just six feet tall, there are teams that think he has the chance to be a back-end starter at the highest level. Willie Calhoun was taken in the fourth round out of Yavapai a year ago and Romero has the chance to do just as well. - MLB.com

ROUND 5 | PICK 1 | OVERALL PICK #137

http://www.scout.com/player/176582-cole-irvin?s=381

What they're saying about Irvin...

Just a year ago, Irvin was struggling with his command and his stuff was not quite as sharp, and now we are seeing a guy whose command seems to be fully back. This is very much in-line with the typical recovery for pitchers who have had Tommy John. Dating back to 2012, I have been following Irvin as a pitcher and my expected outcome has stayed the same. I see a player whose outcome is more than likely a backend starter, with the potential to be a bit more, or the downside of a reliever. - Jeff Ellis, ScoutingBaseball.com

ROUND 6 | PICK 1 | OVERALL PICK #167

 

David Martinelli, CF, Dallas Baptist

What they're saying about Martinelli...

In a down year for Texas college position players, Martinelli is a rare bright spot. He could go in the top three rounds, which would make him the highest-drafted hitter in Dallas Baptist history, ahead of fourth-rounders and future big leaguers Brandon Harper (1997) and Ryan Goins (2009). Martinelli has flashed five-tool talent since his days at Waxahachie (Texas) High but also raised concerns with serious swing-and-miss issues, ranking among the NCAA Division I strikeout leaders in each of his first two seasons and hitting .141 with wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer. He has been much more consistent at the plate this spring after improving his pitch recognition and his approach, cutting his whiff rate by almost two-thirds. He's driving the ball more consistently as well. Martinelli has solid speed that plays up in center field thanks to this instincts. He has seen more time in right field since injuring his hamstring and missing three weeks in March, but he should be capable of playing center as a pro. He has enough arm strength to play all three spots in the outfield. - MLB.com

ROUND 8 | PICK 1 | OVERALL PICK #227

http://www.scout.com/player/206196-grant-dyer?s=309

What they're saying about Grant Dyer...

Dyer has served in a variety of roles in his three years at UCLA, serving as a midweek starter and weekend reliever as a freshman, then as a setup guy as a sophomore. He moved into the weekend rotation as a junior, though it seems like his future might be coming out of a bullpen. As a starter, Dyer's stuff has been somewhat generic compared to when he's thrown in shorter stints, both at UCLA and during a successful turn in the Cape Cod League last summer. He still commands his fastball well, but it's largely sat at around 90-mph in the rotation, as opposed to up to 94 mph in the pen. His breaking ball had more power and tighter spin when he was setting up, though he still uses it effectively. He's generally around the strike zone with all of his offerings. Whoever drafts Dyer could send him out as a starter and see if they can help him find more sharpness in his stuff in that role. Knowing that the stuff will play up, and he could move faster, as a reliever, will be nice to have in their back pocket. - MLB.com
