The Philadelphia Phillies have the No. 1 overall pick next June and have begun preparing for what will be a very important draft for the organization.
Johnny Almaraz, the team's amateur scouting director, and his entire staff will be crisscrossing the country to scout the top amateur players countless times up until June.
"Heading into the year we've been anticipating we'd pick pretty high, so we've been on the go," Almaraz said. "We're very, very optimistic and very positive about this year's crop. We're fortunate to have the No. 1 pick in a really good year."
At this point, there is no consensus No. 1 pick in next year's draft.
