You’ll see quite a few former Rays on this list. They signed José Alvarado as an international free agent in 2012. He debuted with them in 2017, but the Rays traded him to the Phillies following the 2020 season.
Mark Appel is one of the most famous first-overall picks in MLB history because he almost didn’t make it to the show. The Houston Astros selected him as the first pick in the 2013 draft, and after almost a decade of ups and downs, he debuted at the end of June.
Another Rays draft pick, Andrew Bellatti was selected 379th overall in the 12th round of the 2009 draft. After becoming a free agent following the 2016 season, Bellatti bounced around various farm systems and the Atlantic League before signing a minor-league contract with the Phillies in November 2021.
The Phillies selected Connor Brogdon as the 293rd overall pick in the 10th round of the 2017 draft and he debuted in August 2020.

The New York Mets signed Jeurys Familia as an amateur free agent in 2007 and he made his MLB debut with them in September 2012.
One of the older players on the roster, Brad Hand was drafted so long ago, the Miami Marlins were still known as the Florida Marlins when they selected him in the second round of the 2008 draft. He was the 52nd-overall pick.
Corey Knebel is one of a few players on this list drafted by now-Phillies president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski back when he was the Detroit Tigers GM. The Tigers selected Knebel as the 39th overall pick in the 2013 draft.
Nick Nelson was the 128th pick 2016 draft, selected by the New York Yankees in the fourth round. The Phillies acquired Nelson from the Yankees last fall.
