Crawford, who was selected No. 17 overall Sunday night, is from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 6-foot-3, 175-pound outfielder dropped the season.
Crawford was named the 2022 Las Vegas Sun “Male Athlete of the Year” and was a competitor in the perfect All-American Classic.
He is also the son of four-time All-Stars and 15-year Major League veteran Carl Crawford.
“We’re incredibly excited to add a dynamic athlete and defensive midfield whiz in Justin Crawford,” said Brian Barber, Director of Amateur Scouting. “We believe in at-bat, defense and speed and couldn’t be more excited to bring that kind of talent to the organization.”
The Phillies will make their next two draft picks Monday in the third round (No. 93 overall) and fourth round (No. 122 overall).
