Hours before the 11:59pm signing deadline for this year's draft picks, a report from Louisiana's 2theadvocate.com, among other reports from Lousiana, says that the Phillies have agreed to a deal with highly-regarded righthanded pitcher Brody Colvin. Colvin slipped to the seventh round because of a commitment to play at LSU. Colvin participated in a workout at Citizens Bank Park this week. A Phillies official could not confirm this for the Inquirer a few minutes ago.
UPDATE 10:06p.m.: The Phillies have confirmed the Colvin signing to the Inquirer.
