Drafted in the 8th round (234th overall) by the Philadelphia Phillies in 2015 (signed for $350,000)
Pickett possesses some of the best raw power among high school players in this year's draft, thanks to a 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame and a left-handed stroke that allows him to drive the ball with good loft. He's selective at the plate and uses the whole field to hit, but some scouts commented that his raw power doesn't always come out in games. The bat will have to play as he doesn't offer much value defensively. As an outfielder, he's limited to left field, and a move to first base is not out of the question. Pickett is a below-average runner but not a base clogger. While he's been a regular on the showcase circuit, scouts still aren't sure what to project from Pickett as much of his game remains raw. He'll likely get a chance to work on some of those rough edges at Mississippi State, where he's committed.
