With the second half of the 2023 season under way, the Philadelphia Phillies still have some work to do to tie up the 2023 MLB Draft. Over the next week and a half or so, the Phillies have to get all of their draft picks signed before we get to see them in action in the minor leagues.
Philadelphia has a bonus pool of just $5,185,500, the Phillies do not have much room for error. They lost their second and fifth round picks in the draft after signing qualified free agents which took a toll on their bonus pool. Moreover, they HAVE to sign all of their picks from rounds 1-10 if they want to be able to afford their top draft pick, Aidan Miller. There are no early indications that that will be an issue, but Miller being a prep bat does give him some leverage.
Here are the Phillies 2023 draft picks that have signed and for how much
In the section below, you will find all the players the Philadelphia Phillies drafted this year along with notes on whether it is known if they have signed and, as information becomes available, how much they signed for. This information is generally a slow trickle leading up to the signing deadline on July 25th, but the plan is to keep this list updated as that information becomes available. Also, the numbers next to the player's name references the round he was picked in which is why you see #2 and #5 skipped.
