Major League Baseball announced the representatives for each team at the Entry Draft on June 5th and the Phillies representatives will be former broadcasters Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews, who are still employed by the Phillies as ambassadors.
The Phillies have the seventh overall pick in the draft. It is their highest draft pick since they selected Gavin Floyd fourth overall in 2001. It is just the second time since 1999 that Philadelphia has had a top-10 pick.
