Phillies To Sign Second-Rounder Matt Imhof

The Phillies have agreed to terms with second-round choice Matt Imhof, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (via Twitter). He will receive a bonus that corresponds to the $1,187,900 slot allocation that came with the 47th choice.

Imhof, a 6’5 lefty out of Cal Poly, was not even drafted out of high school but has seen his stock rise steadily during his time in the college ranks. MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo and Jim Callis rated him the 33rd best player available, citing his naturally cutting heater and opining that he could have some upside left to claim. Baseball America and ESPN.com’s Keith Law both had him in the 58th slot of their rankings.
