In the past, the Phillies have not been afraid to draft high-risk, high-reward talent. Is Kyle Drabek that type of pick? The Phillies selected Drabek, a talented righthanded high school pitcher from Texas and the son of Cy Young Award winner Doug Drabek, with the 18th overall pick yesterday in the first-year player draft. Drabek had some off-field issues that might have caused him to drop to the Phillies, but the Phils say they have done their homework and are comfortable with the selection.

While acquiring a former Cy Young Award winner, the Phillies dealt another in Cliff Lee to Seattle for three prospects in an attempt to replenish the farm system. In return, the Phillies received pitchers Phillippe Aumont and J.C. Ramirez, and outfielder Tyson Gillies from the Mariners.
