Baseball America has confirmed that Louisiana State signee Brody Colvin has spurned the defending national champions to sign with the Phillies, who drafted him in the seventh round. Colvin signed for $900,000, the second-highest bonus in the seventh round this year and six times the maximum recommended by the commissioner’s office. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound righthander out of St. Thomas More High in Lafayette, La., has a quick arm and power fastball that has reached 94 mph, and scouts expect him to throw harder in the future.
The Phillies have now signed all their draftees through the first 13 rounds. Their top unsigned players are 14th-rounder Jake Stewart, the top athlete in Colorado and a Stanford signee; and 16th-round catcher Andrew Susac, who spent the summer playing for the Corvallis (Ore.) Knights of the West Coast Baseball League, a summer college league. He’s committed to Oregon State.
