Phillies' Colton Eastman: Picked up by Phillies
The Phillies have selected Eastman with the 107th overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft.
Eastman is an established starter from Cal State Fullerton who brings a couple quality off-speed pitches to the table in the form of a changeup and curveball. He is not a hard thrower, but his repertoire should allow him to work as a starter as he begins his professional career. As a college pitcher without a heavy fastball his upside may be limited, but the Phillies would no doubt be pleased if he is able to snag a spot in the big-league rotation within a few years.
