12/10/2020 : Rule 5 Draft
The Phillies selected SS Kyle Holder from the Yankees AAA roster. Holder was the Yankees 1st round draft choice in the 2015 draft from the University of San Diego. Holder is a lefthanded batter who hit .265 at AA Trenton in 2019 with 9 home runs and 40 RBIs in 412 AB‘s. He projects as a utility type player and defensive specialist. He’s a legitimate defensive shortstop. Hasn’t hit much in his minor league career but could certainly provide infield depth.
The Phillies lost RHP Reggie McClain in the minor league portion of the draft. He was selected by the New York Yankees.
Arizona took ex Phillies LHP Tyler Gilbert from the Dodgers in the minor league portion of the draft.
