After taking power with their first pick, the Phillies went for speed and infield depth in Round 2 and beyond.
The Phils selected Roman Quinn, a 5-10, 170-pound shortstop from Port St. Joe (Fla.) High School. Quinn, a Florida State signee, was chosen with the 66th overall pick. Baseball America had him at No. 73 overall in their pre-draft rankings and listed him as the fastest player in their top 200. Quinn hits righthanded and has been dabbling in switch-hitting. His speed makes him a potential candidate for the outfield.
With the 90th overall pick, the Phils took Harold Martinez, a third baseman from the University of Miami. Martinez, a 6-3 208-pound junior, was a 19th round pick of the Rangers in 2008. Martinez hit .301, but his power numbers slumped from a year ago. After leading Miami with 21 homers as a sophomore, Martinez had just three homers in 209 at-bats for the 'Canes this season.
In the third round, No. 120 overall, the Phillies grabbed their first pitcher of the day with the selection of lefthander Adam Morgan, a junior from the University of Alabama. Morgan, an All-Star at the prestigious Cape Cod League last summer, was just 5-7 with a 4.64 ERA. Morgan (6-1, 195) needs to up the velocity on his fastball, which is generally in the 87-90 range according to Baseball America.
