Phillies Draft Picks Report to Rookie Ball

Deadline Day Bonus Babies (DDBB) Jonathan Musser, Brian Pointer, and Kevin Walter will report to Clearwater where they'll play with the first place GCL Phillies. In an article by the Des Moines register (Musser's hometown), Jonathan had this to say:

I’m just ready to start playing baseball again. My goal was to sign and I’m glad we were able to get a number that worked and I get to go down there and start fresh with the Phillies.

After the GCL season ends, they'll stay for instructional ball and work out all winter. Since all three are relatively to insanely raw, they each figure to get only a few licks in the rest of August similar to what Brody Colvin did after his signing in 2009. A full season in the Gulf Coast in 2011 for the trio is on the horizon.

For what it's worth, I agree with James at Phuture Phillies and everybody's favorite friar, PhillyFriar at TGP, that this haul is more appealing than shelling out a million for 5th-round pick Scott Frazier.
