Phillies Sign Top Draft Pick Larry Greene

The Phillies signed top draft pick Larry Greene, reports Baseball America's John Manuel.  Greene, a high school outfielder, was drafted 39th overall in the supplemental round as part of the compensation for the loss of Jayson Werth.  He received a $1MM bonus, the largest amount so far outside of the first round.  Greene is represented by ACES.  The Phillies' first-round pick, #33 overall, went to the Rangers for Cliff Lee.

According to Baseball America, Greene is a "physical beast" known for "well above-average raw power."
