Phils sign first wave of draft picks

Jim Callis, of Baseball America, reported via Twitter this evening that the Phillies have signed 14 draft picks, including supplemental 1st round selection Shane Watson for $1,291,300, which is the full pick value.

Watson attended the same high school (Lakewood, California) that former 1st round draft pick Travis d'Arnaud attended when he was selected by the Phillies in 2007. d'Arnaud recently shared his thoughts about Watson exclusively with PhoulBallz.com.

"I played with his older brother and used to watch (Shane) play a little," d'Arnaud stated. "I am really happy for him and I know he will enjoy the Phillies organization, as I did."

Additionally, the Phillies have also signed their 2nd round pick, high school outfielder Dylan Cozens for $659,800, also at pick value. 4th round draft choice Southern Illinois first baseman Chris Serritella signed for $200,000, which is under pick value, and 6th rounder Purdue 3rd baseman Cameron Perkins has agreed to sign for $152,900, at full pick value.

It was also reported that righty hurler Mitch Gueller, a high schooler from Washington state, also signed with the Phillies and received a signing bonus of $940,000.

Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller portion sizes
- morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. Anyone who dares to make a closer inspection will find the underlying difference.

Who does not need that little bit of elevation when trying to diet.
