From the Field: Will Venable, of, Philadelphia Phillies

Will Venable.jpg

Will Venable was drafted in the 7th round (218th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2005 out of Princeton. He was a project coming out of college, though some people compared him to a young David Justice–which is pretty high praise.

From 2005 to 2008 he would consistently rank as one of the Padres Top prospects, and show a nice mix of power, speed and plate discipline.

He would make the Majors in 2008 and have a handful of average seasons, though in 2013 he would hit 22 HR for a 126 OPS+. He was signed by the Indians this winter, released, and is now with the Phillies AAA team.
