The Phillies have selected Abel with the 15th overall pick in the 2020 first-year player draft.
The only real knock on Abel is that he comes from the riskiest subset of draft prospects: prep righties. He has reportedly been averaging 96 mph (touched 99) in bullpen sessions this spring, and at 6-foot-5, 180 pounds, the expectation is that he will be throwing even harder (without increasing his effort) in a couple years. Abel might also have the best command among this year's crop of high school arms -- he projects for plus command down the road. His plus mid-80s slider is his best offspeed pitch, and he is currently working on improving his changeup and curveball, both of which have promise. On paper, Abel looks like a future No. 1 or No. 2 starter, but as we are often reminded, high school right-handers can often break our hearts in pro ball.
