MICKEY MONIAK, OUTFIELDER, LA COSTA CANYON HS (California)
Early on, our Alexis Girardo had her heart set on Jason Groome, but her mind was set on the Phillies selecting college pitcher A.J. Puk.
But in recent days, Mickey Moniak has become her man, and is her choice for the Phillies selection.
"“I think the youngster has a ton of potential and can be signed under slot, giving the team flexibility to make tougher signs in the later rounds. Everything I’ve read about Moniak speaks to his makeup and baseball instincts. That, combined with his natural talent, makes me think he is the best 1:1 option for the Phillies.“"
Alexis covered her pick in a Wednesday piece the day prior to the draft.
