49 1463 Seattle Mariners Dane Phillips C Texas
Max Muncy and Dane Phillips are gifted hitters who would be more attractive to pro clubs if scouts believed they could catch. Scouts give Phillips high marks for his lefthanded bat, athleticism and work ethic, but they're still skeptical that he can catch. He has enough arm strength but has struggled to handle quality arms such as former high school teammate Trey Haley (an Indians second-round pick in 2008) and select squad teammate Matthew Purke (a projected first-rounder this June). Six-foot-1 and 195 pounds, Phillips has solid speed and could move to the outfield if catching doesn't work out. He has committed to Oklahoma State and is believed to want first- or sandwich-round money to sign.
