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.

As any baseball fan can tell you, it's generally a bad thing when surgeons have to cut open a player's shoulder or elbow. A new study by team physicians for the Phillies shows just how bad. They looked at 44 players who underwent shoulder or elbow surgery from 2003 to 2006, both at the major-league level and at the three levels of the minors. Just 45 percent of those players made it back to the same level or higher after going under the knife. The prospects for elbow patients - of whom 52 percent made it back - were better than for those with bum shoulders (35 percent)

In the last year, the Phillies have traded away seven of their top 10 prospects, as rated by Baseball America before the 2009 season. That, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said, is a cause for concern. 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.

IN 18 DAYS, baseball's trading deadline will be upon us. Despite the fact that the Phillies have the best record in baseball, our fan base is frantic and desperately wants the team to trade for a "bat. " Well, hold on a minute. There is simply no guarantee that a trade will turn out well. It could be great and our "bat" could power us to a world championship, or he could turn out to be a bust and the players we traded to get him could go on to be All-Stars. To understand the risk/reward involved in such a midseason move, let's look at some of the best and worst trades in Phils' history.

Jeter's bid for 3,000 on hold What a year it's been for the Yankees' Derek Jeter , and we haven't even reached the all-star break yet. Earlier this season, Jeter was mired in a slump so deep that the New York Times ran a front-page story about him. On April 20, when he went 0 for 5, his batting average dropped to .219. After he snapped out of it, the 11-time all-star had fans cheering again as he moved closer to collecting his 3,000th career hit. But injury has interrupted that quest.

TORONTO - David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox are steamrolling that 0-6 start into irrelevance. Ortiz and Kevin Youkilis each homered and drove in four runs as the Red Sox teed off on the Toronto Blue Jays for the second straight day - beating them, 14-1, on Sunday for Boston's ninth straight win. "That's why everybody was going crazy when we were losing all those games at the beginning of the season," Ortiz said. "Because you go position by position, this team can match against anybody.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Kyle Drabek won his final two May starts for the Double A New Hampshire Fisher Cats last season, allowing just 10 hits and two runs in 15 innings. Not too shabby. In between, though, Roy Halladay pitched a perfect game for the Phillies. Drabek, 23, threw a no-hitter against New Britain in July and went on to make his major league debut with the Toronto Blue Jays before the regular season ended. Halladay, 33, no-hit the Cincinnati Reds in the Division Series opener and went on to win his second Cy Young Award.

BALTIMORE - The 15th day of September will always have special meaning for Kyle Drabek. A year ago Wednesday, Drabek was standing near home plate at Citizens Bank Park accepting the Paul Owens Award as the top pitching prospect in the Phillies' minor-league system. Fast forward to last night, and there stood the 22-year-old Drabek on the mound at Camden Yards making his big-league debut. "The only thing I told him was don't change anything and that it's still the same game," said Doug Drabek, Kyle's father and the 1990 National League Cy Young Award winner with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Chicago might not be the most logical place to start when looking at the Phillies' recent acquisition of Roy Oswalt, but for those who are interested in the decision-making that went into the deal, it was impossible to ignore the White Sox' 4-1 victory over the Athletics. On an otherwise anonymous Sunday afternoon, two young starters making $3.15 million between them combined to throw 15 innings, with five earned runs, 10 hits and 16 strikeouts between them. The performances would be irrelevant, except for one fact: Four years ago, A's lefthander Gio Gonzalez and White Sox righthander Gavin Floyd were both in the Phillies' farm system.
