The NCAA has indefiniely suspended left-hander Ben Wetzler for inappropriate contact with a financial advisor after he was selected by the Phillies in the fifth round of last year's draft. According to Baseball America's Aaron Fitt, the Phillies turned Wetzler into the NCAA, perhaps for being unable to reach a contract agreement. Wetzler was from the college of Oregon State University.
The Phillies also attempted to report sixth-round pick Jason Monda to the NCAA, but he was cleared to play with Washington State without any issues.
Many believe that what these players deserve agent representation to avoid this from happening. A draft pick has to represent themseleves. Some players are picked at the age of 17, and when negotiating with a multi-billion dollar industry, this can sometimes be an issue in properly signing a contract in the future.
This also hurts the Phillies. Now it will be harder to sign with a team that can sens you back to the NCAA and force you go back through the draft again. This definitely will hurt their representation in drafting college talent.
