Drabek was the number one Phillies prospect
The former ‘untouchable’ of the Phillies minors pitched against his old team yesterday. Kyle Drabek, who is the son of former major leaguer and Cy Young award winner Doug Drabek, did well against the Phillies on Wednesday.
Drabek was the number 1 coveted prospect for the Phillies for some time, and was mentioned previously in trade rumors for Roy Halladay last year. The Phillies didn’t want to part with him, but somehow that all changed and he was traded along with many other minor leaguers for Roy Halladay over the winter.
Drabek did well, pitching 2 innings and giving up only one walk and one hit. Only 25 days to go till opening day.
